Welcome to Librarium Online!
Mmk, i was playing with my magnifying glass while studying.
And started burning stuff.
Then i tried it on my veteran squad im painting up.
And i made some combat damages (eg metla attack).
What do you guys think of the idea? Good or Bad?
And how would i expand after this to represent acid attacks?
Good idea, pyromania ftw.
But for acid, it's probably a better idea to use something acidic, such as acid, there's an article in the space marine section of GW on damaged armour, use that.
I remember when was little I had this thing with two pincer-like arms and a magnifying glass on it. It could be made to grip a model so that details could be painted. Basically the magnifying glass worked to allow for better vision.
If you want to do acid burns I suggest that you use this burning method to made some holes, gouges. Then apply a small amount of plastic glue over this area. The result will be that the plastic gluse melts some of the plastic away.
It will probably be best to wipe away the plastic glue fairly quickly. The result you will be left with is deppressions which look rough but also smooth in areas which will reperesent burns quite well.
