Just a quick question about pinning. If, for instance, I wanted to pin the arms of a space marine to the torso.....is there any reason I couldn't drill one hole clear through the model at the shoulders and run a single length of wire through? As opposed to the normal method of drilling a shallow hole on each side and having two lengths of wire? I was just wondering if doing this weakend the model or something.
Perfectly feasible, IMO.
I know a very experianced player who does all his pinning by first glueing the joint then drilling the glued joint from the outside, then inserting the wire, then refinishing the exterior surface with greeen stuff, he gets some excellent results, if you limit this the arms of marines you have the added advantage of covering the pin with the shoulder pad afterwards
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Sounds good then. Actually, I was still going to make the hole in the marine's body prior to gluing up anything. I also will make shallow holes in the arms.....but I think this should be easier to set up, seeing as I don't have to insert the rod sticking out and try and guestimate where I should drill through the arm if it could theoretically sit flush to the body. Maybe I'll post some pics once I'm done; not that anyone on this forum needs lessons in pinning.
Too bad I can't paint worth crap.
