    Converting mutation arm

    I'm converting Graevus from the Soul Drinkers novels, and he has a huge mutated arm that allows him to carry a power axe like he would a combat knife. I'm using the really massive, muscular arm, the one that's pretty much an oversized normal arm, from the mutation sprue, and i'd like Graevus to be holding his power axe. Now, I've tried bending his fingers around the axe on an old arm by heating it with a lighter and bending it, but it simply made the hand crinkle up. So I was wondering - does anyone have any ideas on how to bend the fingers round so they're holding the axe? I was thinking of holding the hand in just-boiled water for about 30 seconds and seeing if that softened the hand up enough to bend it, but does anyone else have any ideas?

    The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

    Use an ork arm with the hand already around the haft of a weapon, or even just the ork hand?

    Try holding it over a stove element on High. That's what I use for making flags and banners.

    Boiled water is a good bet.

    Alternatively, have a little fun with Green Stuff.

    Oh God, don't get me started on doing fingers with green stuff...while most of mine turn out well, I find them an absolute ass to do, or they just end up injuring me somehow :blink:
    Ah well, I'll have a go at boiling water, seeing as if it doesn't work then it shouldn't damage the model at all. I'm mail-ordering the arms tomorrow, so I'll keep you guys posted, but more suggestions will be appreciated.
    P.S. I've heard you can bend plastic by rubbing plastic glue into the piece and then bending it. Has anyone tried this? I'd have thought that would simply squish the model when you tried to bend it, but can i have some opinions?
