If your reading this blog, naturally you have an interest in wargaming or gaming in general. I’ve been doing gaming for many year, but there is always new things to learn; or tricks that make our experience better.
Privateer Press Insider for today, is all about model building; something I have had many frustrating times with. The model used for this is Lord Exhumator Scaverous, which I have built and actually blogged on this site way back in June. So to see the professionals do it, was not only brilliant; but showed me a few tricks that I will be using in future.
The first thing I learned was Bone Pinning, something that I had not thought to do. The reason I never thought of it, was aesthetics and making more work than necessary. The thought of drilling right through a piece, makes me cringe even thinking about it; it goes against everything I believe. Seeing the professionals do it, makes me question my irrationality.
The second part is simply Blue Tack. Sticking a dod of blue tack on the rod, before cutting, is one of those simple ideas; you think your an idiot you didn’t think of it before. So now I am off to source some blue tack and a dunces cap, seems I will be wearing it for a while.
