Just use like a box cutter knife or something and spin it in circles.
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
I personally use a knife, but its rarely a consistant hole and only looks ok with ork models.
Same as above........If I HAVE I will use a blade......but try to get a pin vice as it make a MUCH better hole.
A very good investment if you spend time in this hobby.
Or you can get an actual pin. A safety pin tip would work. I also use those pins that come in wrapped button-up shirts I get at the store. Sometimes it gives better results than the pin vise, which I find can go off-center sometimes. It won't punch a hole clean through, so with SM bolters that might not work, but if you're just looking to make an actual depression to fill with black paint, that would work.
Just get a pin vice, and make a "guide hole" with an actual pin so it doesn't go off center.
Marines - All built, 4/5 painted. Tau - 3/4 built, 0 painted. 'crons - 1/2 built, 1/2 painted.
I suck at staying on task.
I find it easy enough to use one handed- its a case of clutching the barrel in your ring and pinkie fingers and using your thumb and first finger to spin the barrel. And doing it slowly to keep proper control. As was mentioned, drilling a pilot hole is a good idea too.
