Celestial Lions Kill Team (Part 6)

This model was the very first model that I ever tried this paint scheme on. And now he's finally finished!

Another Celestial Lion battle brother is done.

He joins his battle brothers as seen in Part 5 of this series.

He is the oldest miniature in this Kill Team, being from the late 1st edition era of the plastic/metal hybrid series. Therefore for durability's sake it's wise to pin those plastic arms into place.

First pin added.

After using the old pin-vice to drill some holes, I then inserted the brass rods, cut them down to size, and finally superglued on the arms.

Both arms pinned and glued.

Next came the pauldrons followed finally by the backpack. After some scrutiny I then set about touching up the paint job in a few spots.

The finished model.

And with that he's done... sans flocking and final protective coating, but the main model is done.

In the next part we'll get back to the Specialists that I started to work on in Part 5..
