Well I did it. I really did it this time. I was cleaning my Belakor model to prep for priming over the sink and low and behold one of his legs made it past my little "stopper" and plunged into the filthy abyss of campus plumbing.
I tried to fish it out with a magnet, but they don't posess that quality apparently. I can't see it, and I'm pretty sure it's in the U-bend. I could probably get it, but there is no way I'm opening that drainage system up. Considering I live in a campus dorm, I'm pretty sure someone's vomitted in that sink before. I'm going to say the little guy's leg is lost.
Anyone know where I can find one? I've been looking all over GW's website and it seems they did away with their parts ordering system. I really love this model and I want to use him to proxy until I get a bloodthirster.
I laugh in vicarious glee at your misfortune. (Being british I am allowed to do this, to deny me this would be racist.)
Go the whole hog, model him with a parrot on one shoulder and spaw out his sword for an oversized cutlass. Greenstuff a patch over one eye and make up your peg-leg from a piece of any old timber.
Vandalising someone else's Belakor would be wrong, right?
Knowing some small amount about plumbing, there should be little or no vomit in the u-bend. Mostly hair, grease and any other bits of miniatures dropped down there by hapless gamers over the years. It's meant to trap heavy items, like Be'lakor's leg. Bite the bullet and take a pipe wrench to it, you wuss.
alternatively, use the plastic balrog model as your bloodthirster, just dont put the flames on its back, maybe dont put the tail on and model some scales on with green stuff, tis what ive done
Although I'm not sure the name will help, I've just had a quick poke around and found a picture of what I'm looking for. It's called a pick-up tool.
Would something like that work?
Alternatively, I second going at the drain with a wrench. Be brave! Be fearless! Do whatever it takes (within reason) to get that leg back!
And just wash it in hot water when you get it out. Not in the sink, though...
i mean really... i would be taking the pipe apart immediatley... like prolly about ten minutes ago...
Slaanesh, god of the beer goggles
I tried the moment it fell down the drain to get it back. The plumbing is pretty rigid and I feel like I'm going to bust something if I really torque on it. I really don't want to get fined by the university though haha.
You weren't plannig on hanging around after the deed were you?
That's just dumb.
You have nothing to worry about. A real Demon Prince would bust his own way out!
Yeah, I suggest to go with deadstar's idea. Grabber-tools (mechanical fingers, etc..) are awesome that way. They've fished me out of a jam before; you have no idea what mortification and gut wrenching dread is until you've dropped a non-magnetic item like an o-ring down into the scroll case of a helicopter engine. it's real, real deep in there and the only way to get in there is to rip a whole bunch of parts off, otherwise.

Hehehe.. sorry, but it is atleast a little amusing lol. What were you doing with your DP in the sink anyhow? Always get a cup or otherwise full of water for the purposes of cleaning
