The model comes with one of those transparent flight stands. I happen to hate that kind of stand so I opted to find my own solution.
I made a custom base using multiple layers of cork from the dollar store. I used sand and kitty litter to give it a rocky texture, then spray painted it black and then dry-brushed a combination if Ironhull Grey, Bootstrap Leather, Hammerfall Khaki and washed it with Agrax Earthshade. Then is another light dry-brush with Khaki an touched up the base with Thalmar Black.
The model itself had to be modified just a tiny bit. I ran the right rear leg under hot tap water for a few seconds and the plastic became extremely malleable. You definitely want to be careful with this step because you can easily wreck your model. I bent the foot up about 10 to 20 degrees so that it could perch on top of the rock formation I made on the base.
I primed the model with red spray primer (From Home Depot “Colonial Red”) that is close in colour to Skorne Red before it was glued to the base. I washed the whole model with Agrax Earthshade then dry-brushed it with Khador Red Base.
I hit the model with a light coat of Krylon UV-resistant Matte clear coat after painting. The clear coat is supossed to be matte and transparent but I find it always comes out a bit glossy which I don’t like. It also tends to darken the dark areas on the model just a touch which I do like becasue it brings out the contrast between layers of drybrushing.
I still like the metal Seraph better now I have a Neraph that I can play around with as well,
