|Unit 1, the "Yellow Unit"|

|Shaman in place.|
I'm really happy with how the 'rock turned out. She does have a few finger prints on her, I think because of my poor choice of primer. That also caused some scratching when I installed the trees. I think it's minor though, and most people won't look for that stuff (will you!?); the trees do a good job of diverting your eye. The shaman sits well, if not leaning forward a little, but that's fine. So far, I have no crew for the beast. I traded the forest goblin crew for some more night goblins, just for some aesthetic consistency. I never liked the forest goblins much anyway; they don't really fit with the rest of the army. If I get time before the weekend, I'll magnetise the 8 crew so they can act as 8 wound markers.
After all I said about how well this model assembles, I must say that the howdah was disappointing. It really wasn't intuitive; the instructions were terrible. Perhaps it's because I painted them before assembly, but I found the whole thing far more laborious than the spider itself. Oh well, done now! No chance of magnetising for swaps; some parts are repeated and the structure is so fiddly that you couldn't fir magnets in anyway.
Well, I'll try and get a mid-week update in before the event. If not, it'll be afterwards with my tournament report. Wish me luck!
