WIP: second Riptide, pathfinder mini
It looks line it was either a recasting from the original mold with a cheaper plastic or they copied the sprues and made their own sprue from that copy. Over all the details are crisp and the model went together well. There were some parts that were too thin for the plastic to make so I had holes. There were also a few bubbles. So, Quality is not an issue the issue is that is a copy not an original. I will keep this but I will not do this again.
Meanwhile my buddy has just started to play pathfinder. He couldn't fin a prepainted miniature he liked and didn't want to look bad with a poorly painted fig so he asked me to paint him up one.I warned him of my poor painting skills but he insisted that my minis look awesome. here is the figure I painted up for him
Over all I had a good time. I fear the grav gun more now. I am thinking of a space marine allied detachment for my tau and guard. Bikes with guns and maybe some centurions or assault Terminators. I know I say this but I doubt it will ever happen. I am such a purist.
Have a good short week and I will see you when I have more to report. until then...
