The weather over the weekend was not good, so I did not get a chance to undercoat anything, but it did mean that I managed to assemble a number of figures.
At Salute I picked up two sets of Forge World Womble Marines (10 figures) plus a pack of the box magazine bolt guns. They may be expensive compared to a Tactical Marine box set, but the box set only builds two Wombles.
The figures are nicely cast, there was a bit of flash, but being resin they clean up easily. The feed on the torso is on the socket joint on the bottom part, a nice sharp knife is required to remove the excess resin.
I pinned the arms to the torso and the torso to the legs with plastic rod.
Having assembled five Wombles, I was inspired to build a Captain to command them.
Starting with a Space Marine Commander, I used a chest piece from a Tactical Marine and a Womble head from the same source. I smoothed off the centre of the chest piece and added a etched brass Ultramarine logo. The right handed power sword from the assault marine set and a left handed pistol arm provided arms, the Storm Bolter replaced the pistol for that extra firepower. The commander backpack was topped with the Ultramarine icon. A set of pouches and a purity seal finished off the figure.
So I have a set of figures ready for spraying.
