Well, this is the first standing test. Waist, head and arms are magnetised and they are holding well. Next I have to prep all the armour plates and dry fit them before I start painting.Well, this is the first standing test. Waist, head and arms are magnetised and they are holding well.

Magnetised all the defence turrets. So they can rotate and also be removed for painting.Magnetised all the defence turrets. So they can rotate and also be removed for painting.

Shoulders and various other bits on the torso are now assembled. Slowly getting there as this has a lot of prep work to make everything fit. Definitely not a kit for beginners.

hi Started the assembly on the torso. Lots of shaving and trimming on parts to get them to fit. Also various parts are pinned as well.

That’s the legs assembled minus the armour plates. Pleased with the striding stance, nothing over the top. I’ve double pinned the legs to the hips, again using vertical and horizontal pins.That’s the legs assembled minus the armour plates. Pleased with the striding stance, nothing over the top.

Pinning just about everything on the legs that could break and fail catastrophically and cause it to fall over. Foot pinned to ankle. All of the toes pinned to the foot. And two pins in the knees, one vertical and one horizontal.

First I did some deep scoring on the ankle ball joint to increase surface area for the adhesive. Then glued the feet on. Going to let it all set, then I’ll drill and pin the ankle from underneath so I’m not just relying on glue!

Started the prep on the very many parts that make up the legs!

Magnetising the hips/torso joint.

Drilling 20mm wide by 10mm deep for the magnets I’ve got. Used what’s called a Forstner drill bit in a pillar drill. As it uses a flat cutting edge, it give you a level bore hole in the base. Which should mean more contact area for the glue as the magnets have will have a silly amount of pull on them.

Prepped and started assembly on the plasma cannon. Magnetised the joint so I can swap it to left or right arm depending on the loadout. Definitely the favourite looking warlord gun.

Starting with the head.

Head was fairly simple to assemble. Has a very detailed interior. Had to heat the pipes hanging on the bottom to give them a better fit. Also used liquid greenstuff to fill any gaps in the joints I wasn’t happy with. I prefer liquid greenstuff to the regular stuff because it’s very easy to sand/file back on flat surfaces. Only issue with it is, it dries by evaporation so you get shrinkage, so you have to do multiple fillings.

Just got one of these to help with cutting the bigger gates off the warlord. Have used dremmels etc, but they are very messy. So thought I’d give this a go.Just got one of these to help with cutting the bigger gates off the warlord. Have used dremmels etc, but they are very messy. So thought I’d give this a go.

First job was to check through the hundreds of pieces and check everything was there. Which it was. Unfortunately one part was snapped on the volcano cannon and there was some rough casting on the gun shield as well. I could fix it, but I shouldn’t have to. Will be getting those replaced by Forgeworld. Premium price should equate to premium finish, so never worry about having a moan!

Been a long while since posting. Finally got a Leviathan, definitely my favourite dreadnought. All the arms and weapons are magnetised. So I can swap the storm cannon out for a drill.
