Mr Carnifex

I've had this model for over 2 years but I kept postponing it because I wanted to magnetize it and didn't take the time to find out where to get decent magnets.
Since I dó have magnets now which you know I've already tried out at another model, I finally restarted painting/building the Carnifex.

Carnifex Parts
I wasn't satisfied with the way I started painting it so I did all the red on the legs and tail again and will re-do it on the rest of the model.

Next to having trouble getting started with the model itself, I decided I needed a cool scenic base to go with it. And last year I stumbled upon this base:
Base

It's made by a small company in Poland and it didn't cost me more than somewhere between the 3-5€. There was some kind of knight-corpse on the base which I turned *I put down a holstered eldar gun on top of where his sword was* into an eldar ala Iyanden because they're one of the opponents which were struck hard by Kraken *sorry..that is just 40K talk*. The base isn't finished completely though.

I'll try and get some decent work done next weekend and I'll see how fast it can be finished. It's a lot of work though, magnetizing all configurations (different weapon-arms).

is the carnifex plastic or lead?

plastic :) I got neodymium magnets with a 2x3mm size (diameter x hight).
The metal they use for some models is pewter though, not lead (lead being poisonous and all).

The old carnifex wás from pewter though except for the arms, now every part is plastic. Which makes converting ánd magnetizing far easier.

Plus with plastic the molding is a lot better.

@ R2K: yes, I think I did, but it never gets old. One hell of an awesome accomplishment.
