Forge World Stable

One of my birthday gifts I received was the Forge World Warhammer Stable.

Here is the painted model from Forge World.

I do like the models that Simon Harris has sculptured for Forge World and this is a nice model.

It comprises three components, the stable, the roof and a supporting beam.

It also comes with two wooden (plastic) wheels for adding to the model.

I also think it is very good value (compared to other Forge World models) as it only costs £20.00 and is quite big compared to say the Warhammer Cottage.

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).

Once washed the model is then ready for painting.

The first thing I did was give the model a spray of white undercoat.
