Stormwall: Assembly and pinning

So I finally picked up a Stormwall. It does need a lot of cleanup before assembly but as it is a center piece model the extra time and effort is not wasted!
Looking at the model I was thinking it would be easier to paint it in sub assemblies, something I have never had to do before.
I was unsure if I should magnetise it and if so how much?
I definitely want to make a good scenic base for it probably involving trench works. Maybe even with places to put some small based models as a decorative touch. With a replaceable plain base to cover the gap.

Ready for assembly

Pods, I drilled out the holes that where filled with flash

Arms pinned at every joint

How I pinned the hip joints

Pinning the hip twice

Torso assembly complete

Torso hip pins, these where a pain to get lined up right but I got there in the end.

I pinned all the storm coils, I really don't want pieces falling off at any point.

Guns added, drilled holes for the big guns too.

Storm coils ready for undercoating

Leg assembly finished and ready for undercoating

Torso ready for painting, masked off pinned areas 

Undercoating done!

First coat of paint on

Started painting up the rest of him. 

I will put up another update about him once have made enough progress to be notable.
