Anyone else had this?
Mold lines I can live with, but this was really weird, like the mold wasn't sealed properly so the plastic for want of a better word drifted. It was pretty bad around the knees and crotch, but terrible on the pauldrons. The photo is poor but you can clearly see the result. I cut the detail back in on the worst ones, but they aren't going to win any prizes that's for sure. The chunk missing in the centre can be scraped down and a swipe of liquid green will get rid of that, in fact after undercoating there's usually hardly anything to see.

I reached out to GW to flag the quality control issue, and they said they've not had this before, and if I supply them with additional photos and the batch number they'll look in to it further. I'll keep you updated.

UPDATE: Games Workshop asked for further photos and the batch number, and once they had photo evidence, they agreed to send me another set of sprues. I'll paint these as Charcharodons, and post how I get on. Thanks Gee Dub!

Black Templar Army | The cold light of day

Here's my current army in the cold light of day. It's not complete, I purchased the 2 Horus hersy boxed sets and the Dark Imperium to bolster the troops, there's at least one flyer waiting in the wings and several FW models that need paint on. Oh and a Cerastus Knight Castigator needs bulilding

I've found it quite refreshing to get a photographic record of how much stuff I have, and how much of that needs painting/finishing off. As my beloved wife said; "if you never visit GW again you've years of stuff to get through". Did I mention the Bad Moon army, Deathwatch, and Grey Knights that I haven't treated to a group photo of yet. All in good time, I've got years after all.

I'll be getting back into gaming with 8th in the next few weeks, and the Dark Imperium contents are already undercoated and tabletop ready. After finishing the details on those, well there's a tank or two that needs some attention. Wish me luck...
