My DA army is heavy on plasma, and, following my philosophy, they are as deadly to themselves as to the enemy. So i was wondering how i should model plasma burns? actually melting the model would be cool, but may prove disasterous.Any ideas?

well, after you paint them, you could light a match, and put it near the joints/ armor. YOu could also find some chemical(like nail-polish remover(I think)) that melt plastic, and apply it to specific areas in small quantities, until you get the desired effect, then paint it black, with some orange/red to make it smoulder.

make a small divet or hole by twisting the tip of your knife into the armour of the marine
then take a toothpick with polystrene cement on it this will melt it in all directions to make look like there was a plasma impact.

Yeah, just use some of the melty glue. That works good and if you do it after you paint it adds the effect of te paint melting in that area so it looks warped. That works with normal super glue too but you end up with a more crusty model than a melty model.

This technique works great. Like two minutes into a gaunt and I had burned a hole all the way through it like this. :lol:

Remember, give people rep if they help you.
You can model plasma burns really easily on polystyrene terrain. Take just about anything semi-acidic to it. Superglue, aerosol, Coke.
I need the bugger so I can see!
Wouldn't this go in the conversion or painting categories?
Anyways, I'm not sure about the best way to make something look melted, but glue sure isn't a good way. When it half-dries, it gets all stringy, which isn't good.
My cousin heats up a piece of metal like copper or something with a soldering iron, and then he uses that to make the burn mark its more effective than the glue or wahtever that leave some residue behind, try it on some old models you dont want first though to ge tthe hang of it its really effective good luck
you could try using an actual chemical that is corrisive.
but then again to someone whos hestiant to playy with fire hadle viotile chemical might not be your thing.(Then again super glue gw sells isnt exactly heatlh friendly either)
