Forgeworld Ork Flakk Gun

One model I recently purchased was a Forgeworld Ork Flakk Gun. I am intending to use it with my new Ork vehicles.

The Flakk Gun is a quad-barrelled rapid firing turret equally at home targetting enemy aircraft of infantry squads.

As seen at GamesDay 2009.

The resin parts are as seen here. You get three Grot Krew and an Ork Gunner.

One of the key things you need to do with virtually all Forge World models is to give them a good wash.

When the Forge World models are cast, the mould is given a spray (I guess) of some kind of lubricant to allow the cast model to be released from the mould easily. However the lubricant also acts as a barrier to paint, so as happened with previous models I (and others) have painted is that the paint flecks off.

Washing the model in water with a drop of washing up liquid should remove the lubricant. Avoid using hot water as this could warp the resin (a useful tip if you need to warped resin back to its original shape).
