Finished up this guy tonight. First of the new models, but not the last for sure. I only have a Farsight for now, but I'll be getting more as soon as the restocks come in to my FLGS.
This is a GREAT model. I love the dynamic pose, love the complex armor and the cloak. I combined techniques on it, going for a blend on the cape but line highlighting the armor. The base color is the old GW foundation paint Fenris Grey, which (fortunately) I bought a new pot just before the paint line migration..so I have plenty for a Riptide.
I should say this guy is very easy to paint, even with the cloak assembled I had no issues reaching everything that needed paint. IMO the single-model plastic blisters is some of the best stuff GW is doing right now, and the Fireblade is a testament to that.
