Iron Hands

I’ll be working on the Space Marines Primarchs from Forgeworld. The first up is Ferrus Manus, the Primarch of the Iron Hands. The first pic is the basic Manus, on a 40mm base. The miniature is huge, towering over even Terminators. He’s basically a 54mm scale model here. I’m looking forward to working on him. His color scheme will be black, some skin, and white and yellow metal.

The second pic is the scenic base that he came with. The ring of dead Marines and wreckage nicely hides his own base. An extra piece will allow this scenic base to join the scenic base for the Emperor’s Children’s Primarch Fulgrim (to be painted eventually). The pieces of the base have been magnetized to keep them together on the table.

I’ll be posting updates as I work on Manus.

  1. Looking forward to seeing your work with the primarchs!

    Can you comment on the quality of the cast? I see from the various unboxing videos in Youtube that the cast quality has improved a lot. Did you have to go through lots of error fixing?

    • Anopheles Says:

      The cast seems very good. The usual mold lines where you’d expect, especially on all the little fiddly parts of his backpack (all those arms). Luckily no huge mold lines running across major details. I’ll probably get a better idea of any weird problems once he’s base coated. It always works out that way…
      Some really fine flash and webbing on small parts. I had to add some green stuff here and there to finish some connections (you can see one pipe running into his back from the side). Otherwise a nice clean job on it.
