it took me about a week’s worth of painting time from the Unboxing video to the wrap up, and I’m very happy with how I worked out my “system” for painting these girls.

Now, let’s wrap up these 12 Ulthwe Eldar Howling Banshees!

Beautiful, but inconceivably alien and vicious! Just like my ex! Heyoooh!

What a journey I went on with these models.

If you remember my Unboxing video, I bemoaned the twelve minis in this project because of all the FINECAAAAAST issues I had to work around.

  1. Mold lines
  2. Excessive flash connecting hard-to-reach areas of the miniature
  3. Air bubbles
  4. Bent weapons
  5. Broken weapons

These were all issues that I had to address before even beginning to put paint to mini!

So I dove in, looking for the best possible solution to each problem.

  1. Use the back of my hobby knife to scrape the worst, most offending mold lines.
  2. Use the business end of my hobby knife to carefully scrape away the flash.
  3. Liquid Green Stuff
  4. Heat up some water (not boiling! Just between hot hot hot and really warm), submerge the bent piece and carefully re-position it. Let dry and re-harden on a paper towel.
  5. Superglue!

And so, much like a beat-up, abused and neglected old car, once I had cleaned up the minis and actually gotten a couple layers of paint on them, they began to shine again.

For these twelve models, the hardest step after the cleaning and priming was those initial colors. I really had to grit my teeth and power through the basecoats.

At the time I was sure that here would be no way I could cover up all of the miscasts, but here I am now, looking back and just enjoying the finished product.

As a sidebar…

You can paint anything!

That came out of nowhere, but it is such a strong belief of mine, I need to keep repeating it, in the event, dear reader, that you ever feel discouraged and want to just put down the brush.

If I can make these FINECAST Howling Banshees look like they stepped fresh out of a magazine, then you can finish whatever you’re working on.

Don’t give up, y’all!

Stay tuned because I’ll be releasing a written guide to painting up your Howling Banshees just like I did!
