Thank you for the tips.  The resin in question is an unknown quantity, as it is for figures for Fallout Wasteland Warfare.  There will not be any filing, sawing, or sanding, so far as I can see, as I'll be working 32mm infantry, for the most part, and certainly to start with.

The standard of my painting, and the fact that I only have time for painting and modelling during the summer holiday period, means that a project log is only a tentative possibility.

A Standard fabric dust mask should be suitable, along with ensuring your workstation is well ventilated, especially if you're using super glue for any assembly. It really only becomes a problem if you're heavy edits, like sawing, sanding and so on, but if removing flash is all you're doing then the amount of resin dust produced shouldn't be significant.

There is probably an element of how hard the resin itself is. From what I remember, the softer Finecast resin GW use(used?) doesn't produce dust, where as harder resin such as what Zealot Miniatures and Anvil Industry use in my experience do generate small amounts.

A damp cloth should be sufficient to clear what resin dust is produced.

Will we be seeing a project log for these minis? :3

I find myself with doubts and queries about working with resin infantry models (not GW), which I hope that those of you who have experience of working with resin may be able to help me to answer.

The main issue that I have is safety.  The instructions that the company which makes the models provides indicate that a safety mask should be worn when working with resin and to dampen any tools.  This is to protect lungs against the effects of the dust.  Does anyone have any suggestions of the sort of mask that I could use?  Does anyone use a respirator mask for modelling which they could recommend?  Are there any other safety procedures that I need to follow?  Is the dust also harmful to the eyes?  I'm not planning to do much, or any if I can avoid it, sanding or filing, I will just need to remove flash with scalpel.

I don't have an ideal space for working with resin.  It will probably be my parent's kitchen table while I am on holiday during the summer, which is where I usually do my modelling with plastic figures, but obviously this table is used for eating, so iy will need to be properly cleaned.  I assume that the best way to clean up any resin dust is to use a damp cloth or are there more effective methods?

Forge World are the ones who sculpted the details there, for their Alpha Legion Praetor in Power Armour.

They are GW glazes. My recipe for the blue is 2x thin coats of Runefang Steel followed by 3x Glazes of Guilliman Blue (I'm now onto my third pot). Some of my models then have Nuln Oil washed over the top to darken the blue a bit more.
With the Praetor there I applied some Waywatcher Green over the top.

For the cape I ran out of patience and just wanted to get it done. It's meant to look like the one on my Gravis Captain although that one is far from perfect.

Did you scuplt those toros and leg spikes?!

Also, the first thing that caught my eye was that green glaze. What did you use? GW glazes?

I think the cap is probably the only thing that needs work, but I'm sure you already knew that.

Drop Pop and jump trops looking awesome as well :3

Update Time!

My profile picture shows my Captain in Phobos armour with the helmet from an Alpha Legion Praetor, I have finally constructed and painted the rest of him with a standard Alpha Legion helmet. I had a look at adding some green glaze over the blue, I think it works quite well but it's a little late for the rest of the Alpha Legion.

He's not Primaris so won't fit in my army but he's a nice display piece.

And I previously mentionned acquiring a little toy for Omegon, here's a size comparison to show just how little it is...

That's right, it's a Dreadnought Drop Pod.
I'd been waiting a long time for Forge World to bring these back. I've applied liberal amounts of Nuln Oil to represent the paint being lightly scorched on entering various atmospheres and, as with the rest of my army, I've customised it with the fantastic Alpha Legion transfers;

I'm thinking of acquiring masking tape to create hazard stripes around the inside of the doors. The areas which I have currently left black could eventually become black and yellow.
Here's a picture of Omegon looking pleased with his new toy;

I also realised that, when I posted my original batch of photos, I missed the thrusters on my Inceptors. I'm found a guide online and did my best to copy it and, while it doesn't quite match up to the original, I'm pretty pleased with the result;

I received a new box from GW today so there shall be more to share in the near future.

Agreed, those are incredible. Have they had any success on the battlefield, or are you more of a painter and modeller?

Mixed results, I used most of them in my last battle, a 2v2 team match where I used a deathstar unit of: Dark Apostle, Dark Disciples, Master of Possession, Greater Possessed and 5x Possessed with the occasional casting of Prescience from the Sorcerer. They got spread a little too thin so I couldn't make use of all of the buffs at the same time and we ran out of time so my teammate and I found that we weren't holding any of the objectives when the game was called.

I definitely wouldn't call myself a painter given the amount of grey plastic on my shelves. Every now and again I go through a phase where I can just sit down and get things done.

Thanks Narric, it really means a lot.

Don't worry, more is on the way very soon. I recently picked up a little toy for Omegon which I've started to basecoat today.

Painting often seems like a chore but when I see the results I'm always glad that I made the effort.
