A few hours today spent working on my piece for a local competition. "Shadowblade", as he is apparently known, is one of GWs' latest plastic kits. When I started painting years ago I loathed plastic, really, I wouldn't touch plastic models. I found the details were poorly rendered and the material itself quite uninviting. All has changed thank Heavens! This kit is a real joy: no excessive details, practically no mould lines, a near perfect fit between the pieces and his pose is the final nail in the coffin of financially preserving self-restraint.
