Unlike the majority of FW kits that I've put together before (MkII Assault & MkIII/IV Tactical Marines) these guys were far easier to construct in terms of the number of pieces. The MkII Assault Marines for example were a nightmare. Each of the 5 Gal Vorbak came with
- A single torso piece including legs and power pack.
- Two separate arms
- A Head
- A exhaust vent for the power pack
So 5 pieces for each figure all relatively easy to assemble and put together. However, my continuing issues with FW resin and superglue meant I had to resort to pinning to get the arms on. Not a big deal as the end result is always a stronger model.
|Pinning - one in each shoulder for the arms and one in at least one foot to attach them to the base|
|Detailing on these guys is just awesome|
