As a bit of an aside from the diorama, which is pretty much done btw, I decided to have a little play with one of Games Workshop’s newer releases – the Wight King.
This is a plastic kit – a new style one packed in a blister, and it was an absolute joy to work with! This should be the way forward for GW kits in my opinion – very few mould lines, a ‘layered’ build which means it has loads of undercuts (which you usually miss in plastic) and a lovely level of detail without it being too overcrowded.
I really like the way the paints flow off the brush with just a little water added to get the consistency I am used to working with. This is by no means a comprehensive test, but I have been pretty impressed so far and will continue to buy and use the new Citadel Colours.
(ps I have even used a ‘dry’ paint for the gold mail! It was actually very handy… will probably buy the silver one too)
