Ever since I started this hobby some 10 months ago I've had a long term goal I have wanted to achieve, yet never had the skill until now to be able to do it justice. So what is that goal you ask? I want to create a bad ass mofo biker using Ork parts to create something a little bit Rat Finkish. A totally non gaming piece of course.
So many months ago I bought a box of Ork Warbikes, mainly with this project in mind but from those parts I was able to create a rune priest bike for my friend (something I note he has yet to paint... looking at you JP! (I will dig up photos of this piece when I can find them lol)).
Now to another topic I wanted to share with you the gaming community, Dremals and other such micro power tools. So often I see people talking about using these devices and yet they do nothing more than drill holes for pinning with them! This is what I use to drill pin holes, anything more is just wrapping!!
Instead I use my power tool with a bevy of grinding, coring and mainly engraving bits to create my models and conversions. If you do decide to go down this path I highly recommend getting an extension cord (as shown here, not for you electricity) this allows me to work with the bit as if it was a pen, otherwise your constrained to hold a very tiny bit of plastic in one hand and a large heavy whirring spinning piece of sharpened metal in the other... last time I checked this came under the "Bad Idea" category, but hell if a night getting acquainted with your local emergency room staff is your idea of fun by all means go for it.
