Yesterday we took our first detailed look at the new Stormsurge kit for the Tau Empire, which is available to pre-order now. Today, we're going to investigate some of the kit's other exceptional features.
As mentioned yesterday, the Stormsurge features a lot of modelling options, particularly when it comes to posing it. The kit features ball and socket joints at the waist and shoulders enabling you to pose the torso and missile pods to the desired angle. Similarly, the main gun can be positioned raised or lowered. We recommend painting it separately to the rest of the model so you can paint all the details around it.
Before you build and paint your Stormsurge, make sure you check out our top building tips in Sprues and Glue in White Dwarf 88. We also show you how to paint the model in sub-assemblies, which is much easier than tackling it all in one go (we know, we tried…).
