Modified rider Modified gunsight This is the forge world sguiggoth. This model took me a few hundred hours to complete over a period of about 18 months. This is my first all resin model that I've finished, it represents many first time achievements for me as a model maker. The kit is quite good although some of the flash (which is normal for resin) is a lot thicker than most resin items that I've used on my other models kits (Aires/FreightDogModels). It is slightly softer too, although the forge world resin is fairly consistent (I have loads in boxes!) it is expensive if you consider £ v's quality. That being said it still builds up well with very little filler being used, the legs are the most difficult joint to fit and align, some of the scales need reworking. I have modified this kit from the box (or bag!) the additions/mods are the rider/guider, the gunsight and the two rear most totem poles. The arms on both figures required some work to get the arms to sit right. The reigns are from Christmas cracker jewellery. The gun barrel, which must be bought separately, has been drilled and his missing tooth is the result of "an accident". I dropped it! The worst part about this model is that I had to give it away, I built it for my brother, it was a free gift for him. Inspiration drawn from crocodile, blue tongued lizard and spotted gheko. All paints from games workshop except Matt varnish which was humbrol. The base is mainly tamiya texture paint with some odd bits dotted about, old paintbrush bristles for long dry grass and more random bits and pieces from various sources.
