I just finished reading Horus Rising and I am aching to do a Luna Wolves force. Looking at the False Gods cover artwork, it's all Mk. IV Armour which I can cope with. However, they all have their right shoulder pad studded. What is the best way tpo make shoulder pad studs for Space Marines?

Plasticard rods, cut up dry GS, soft GS, or Bitz Ordering?

Personally, I'm in favour of Bitz ordering, as I'd have to do a lot of that anyway.

Even better way, which you didn't poll at the top.

same way you make rivets on "plating"

Small drops of super glue. make sure it's not the runny kind. see if you can find the gel.

It worked for my pre heresy squad.

Use PVA glue.
Put a small blob on a clean surface.
Leave it to dry for about 10mins or until it turns stiff. (he he, the glue not you!!)
Then use a cocktail stick to dap small rivets on the model.
Repeat this step till the rivets are all the same size and you like the look of them.
And they just base coat as per norm.

All the other options are also very valid, but this method is cheap as chips just takes
a little time and is a little more forgiving than superglue which set almost straight away.
