The Primarch WIP 1
Does GW hate us? They've been showing us nothing but love, with a receptive social presence, great models, great customer service, and even fun hints about the the future of the game. But then they go full filigree. You never go full filigree. This model is an exercise in outlining. I thought Fulgrim was a pain in the ass, but man Guilliman takes the cake!
So where am I in this model? God knows. I've been cleaning up the oil pin wash for over an hour now, and there is still a lot to remove. The model is also semi-gloss coated right now, which makes everything look terrible.
At least the base coat is nearly done. Then I get to start highlighting endless amounts of gold filigree. Come on GW. A model should be no more than 5% filigree at most. Otherwise it looks like doily.
