Spirit Host and a Secret Weapon WIP


Continuing the excursion into hard plastics with a Spirit Host from Games Workshop.

These, like many of the newer plastics, are fanciful and very ambitious models that take full advantage of the great properties of hard plastic.  They are also a really fast paint project when decompressing from a set of more demanding models!

I love the way the spirits rise from the skeletons!

I've used Secret Weapon Green wash over a white primer and highlighted with Reaper Maggot White... which has kind of a glow in the dark feel to it.  A dark red ring or dot for eyes.  Its not intended to be a glowing eye... just a hollow pit.

Army painter provided the wildflowers/weeds, GW technical paint Agrellan Earth provided the cracked earth basis for the drybrush, and GW technical paint Nurgle's Rot for the pool of goo.

Here is a peek at peek at the future light armored vehicle for the Jailbirds project as it moves through the production line.

Jailbirds have selected the Rapid Assault Vehicle from Secret Weapon as their main armored support vehicle.

Here is a shot of the magnets.. and my very high tech Chopstick Magnet Applicator!

These vehicles come with 7 main weapon options and 2 hull mounted secondary weapon options... pre-sized for magnetization!  They weapons have large tabs that fit into very deep sockets in the turret and on the hull so no drilling was required... two 1/8" depth magnets fit precisely between the back of the tab and the base of the main weapon.  The hull mounts do not required magnets but could take them easily. 

Build it!
Paint it!
Play it!

  1. If you get a chance, can you take a scale shot of one of those tanks vs something like a rhino or similar scale? I've been curious as to their size for awhile!

    Really nice job on the spirits. Though your application sounded really easy, it sure looks great! The nurgle rot looks especially good on those bases, and I like the little flowers. It's a nice touch!

    I just ordered a magnet applicator...i kid you not. The stompa broke me.

  2. Sure thing Greg! I'll have some scale vs other vehicles and vs the next Jailbird installment :) in the next post.

    Thanks for the Spirits! They really were that easy to paint... although construction was a bit hairy! The little flowers really break up the huge footprint of the base without having to do tons of texturing... inspired by the bout of hay-fever I was battling with at the time.

    I'm looking forward to that applicator review... I have a ton of magnet work lining up in the queue and the chopstick is not entirely satisfactory!
