I have an 40k ork warloard ghazzghull ( my spellings rubbish) and i put some extra plastic shoulder pads on him but i want some wonded bullet holes and scraches on them, so can some uber pro modeller help me please!!
www.games-workshop.com is having an "off" day
anyhoo, when it's back, check it out, it's real usefull!
While the GW is great stuff, the simplest way I think (And the way I use) is this:
- Use a pin (Or small Pin Drill) and put a hole in the armour, about .5mm to 1mm in.
- Get a knife (Hobby or other) and poke the tip in the hole. Make sure it won't slip out.
- Twist the knife carefully, and do a few rotations, swerving the knife here and there for a more random effect.
Viola! Instant Bulltet Holes. Make the pin holes different sizes by pushing the pin harder or softer to get more variation.
Heres some examples of some of mine. Please excuse image quality:
Check this Marine's leg. Its a bit hard to make out because of the paint and the angle though.
And this Servitor has some on his Right arm. Also hard to make out because it isn't zoomed in.
Ahhh veryy helpfull thankss
ohhh and the last picture holes in the flag look good too thankss!
No problem. I hope you achieve the look you want.
How did you get the holes in the flag without potentially damaging the flag?

The Flag is from the new Empire Flagellants box, and the holes come already in it.
To answer your question, however, its almost as simple as the method I described above.
- Put a pin hole in the flag, making sure its the whole way through.
- use a small hobby knife to scrape the inside of the hole to get some variation in the rip.
If, in the event that it does get a little damaged, use some greenstuff on the hole and start over.
i'm no uber pro but i find using my circular file works simply press where you want and twist while pushing down. you can also use a drill but it don't always work.
i hope this has been a bit of help

Try to make bullet holes look realistic. You can make it look better by getting a realistic formation to the bullet holes, the bullets probably weren't fired at random. Most of the time bullets are fired at a target and as such will follow a pattern sort of like these dots here.
Well that didn't work. The computer made my little mess all neat and tidy.
Try to imagine throwing rocks at a wall, the chances are there will be a mark left by the first rock. Try to aim for the spot about one foot beside the rock to the right. Throw the rock and the repeat. Start again and try to aim at the spot that you have hit with each rock the first time. Thge result will be a line of marks that are a little messy looking. This is about the formation that bullet hole will take when seen on a wall, tank or whatever.
