Here's the backstory. A few months ago I stumbled upon an article that involved heating salt to help bend plastic parts, I thought it was interesting but didn't pay too much attention to it since I would never need to do something like that. WRONG!!! Now I need to attempt to bend my crisis suit arms and cannot find the post to save my life. If anyone knows what I'm talking about please send me a link to it, I've used the search and typed in just about every string I can think of and got nothing. Thanks in advance.
I know the technique is called salt dipping, that may help narrow your search a bit since I can post the direct link

Found it. Thanks for the help. Now lets hope this works.
Crisis suit arms are mechanical. I'd rather cut and repose them.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
I'm not going to give you an article, but I know for my lacrosse stick head you heat salt water (the temperature is higher because of the salt) until it boils, stick in the plastic for a few minutes, and then form it to whatever shape you like.
I assume the same goes for miniatures.
You may want to try this with even part of a sprue first just to see if it applies.
Hope it helps,
I'm going to hijack the thread slightly and ask if anyone has bent those tow chain accessory things that come on imperial guard tank sprues? I've seen a couple of coiled ones but the plastic doesn't seem thin enough to want to do that naturally.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
