I’m back working on the Mortifactors and I have returned with the first of my Mortifactors terminators. Now, I couldn’t just do normal Termies, could I? Well, I could if I was a bit more sensible, but instead, I’ve gone for the Tartaros Pattern fellas from Forge World.
Now, the Tartaros kit is a typical Forge World kit and, for those who don’t know quite what that means, it means that it looks stunning, but it’s a right ∞#&$€% to put together. As well as the scrubbing with a toothbrush of tiny, fiddly pieces, and the clipping off of those great blocks of resin, it’s a right instructionless headache to get the assembly right. I had these guys sat on my desk for a month before I built up the courage to actually put them together, but looking at this first chap, I’m very glad that I did.
Now, these pictures are not the finest. I’ll take some sexier, higher def ones when I’ve got the whole squad painted, but they should give you an idea of it all at least. It was really fun to jump back into the Mortifactors again and these beautiful models made it even more fun. And whereas usually I paint each individual bit, other than the heads, all of the terminators were put together before painting which made them far less intimidating to paint. I won’t go too much into the painting stuff as you’ve probably all got a bit tired of that over the last few months (like the bone, the black bits are a pain, blah, blah) but needless to say, I’m rather happy.
On the kit, those storm bolters are about the best looking guns I’ve seen on a mini, and the fact that each of the five terminators looks like a miniature Contemptor, that just makes them look even better. Great kit.
Here are a few more shots. Keep your eyes peeled around here for the next five to appear. This guy was undercoated black, and painted using Citadel Paints and a W&N Finest Sable Series 7 000 brush. Onwards!
