Default Bits and Kits builds a Lynx

Forgeworld Eldar Lynx



Well im a sucker for all things Eldar and this last 12 months has been pretty good for me in terms of new models to build and paint, unfortunately time has not been on my side, but i managed to grab a few moments today to finally make a start, After reading IA11 i fell in love with the idea of making my Lynx belong to the Void Dragon Corsairs, for no other reason than i like the colour scheme and i have done craftworld eldar colours to death.
At the time of writing i havent decided on how im going to paint the tank, i may go the route of painting the entire top in red scales or i may go with part very dark grey and some red/dragon scales to match the art in the IA11 book.

Anyway here is the kit


The kit was a bit of a shock when it arrived as i hadnt expected the very warped pulsar

to make matters worse it was warped in two directions, but some hot water and patience and its sorted


the Pulsar is pretty well molded but it does have a slight mold line at the very tip, so i set about it with diamond file and sand paper.

might be a good time to point out what tools im using and why.

Mine was warped as well, do a good dry fit too, it turned out one of my hull pieces was warped as well, but just slightly.

you going to be airbrushing that?
I've always liked the look of elder but have been put off in the past by all the flat smooth parts.
but now I've started using an airbrush a bit more it puts pay to the brush lines I used to get on the tanks and amour panels.

should look good, keep it coming

Glad you got it sorted B&K....always nice opening fresh stuff....anything that's warped instantly makes me cringe...even the word ! lol

Have you decided what sort of paint job for it yet? are you an airbrush man like the mighty yoda.?

Keep up the work when you get time,

Best of luck

I am waiting to paint mine for next months painting challenge, I was doing the scorpion for this months but came to find out that it does not. start until next month, woops.

For the most part my model did not have a ton of warpage and needed minimal pinning to get it all nice and sturdy.
