Forgeworld Ork Gunwagon

So what do you get in the box...

One of the things that surprised me about my new Forgeworld Ork Gunwagon was the sheer number of parts.

For some reason I wasn't expecting to get a large number of parts. I was expecting the track units to be a single casting.

I was pleasantly surprised though to get an extra twin linked Big Shoota as well as the Kannon which I think is standard.

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

When the Forgeworld 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 gluing and painting.

The Kannon which comes with the model has a number of parts.

The highlighted aspects are those that need to be trimmed.

Having cleaned the parts, they were ready to be stuck together.


The actual Kannon model does go together quite nicely.
