Armorcast Warhound #1 - 04

Still working on the warhound with sand paper, supressing mold lines one by one.

I had to create some more tools to work on the spikes.
So Eighties baby !

The toothbrush's a very good tool. You can use it to curve the sand paper or simply clean the dust.

I'm now working with the 800 sand paper and it's good news. I'll soon see the end of this and prepare the base.

Posts aren't posted as usual.
The best I can do is to blog every two weeks.

A few weeks ago, I had to move away from my children and their mother.

This is why I don't own a PC anymore.
And it's a bit difficult to keep the same pace.

I'll be back on tracks asap but for now, it's the best I can do.

Back to work.
First of all : I have to suppress all the mold lines.

Modeling knife isn't the best solution when you have to work on such an old lady.
You have to work her body parts with sand paper.
I'm using 240, 500 and 800.

The 240 is a strong one, which I rarely use.
The 500 is my best tool. It's fine enough to be the main tool.
The 800 is the final paper, the one I use to have a smooth surface.

I created some tools to work with the sand paper and keep the surfaces as "in their original shape" as possible.

I'm using small width wood parts, cutted in different shapes.
The paper's glued on the wood with some double faced tape.
Et voilĂ , you have a cheap -but efficient- set of tools.

Note : you must wear a mask while working with sandpaper.



Our Holly Hobby needs time.
Having a new mini in hand is just the beginning of a long journey.

You'll have to prepare, assemble, paint and -finally- enjoy your new mini.

Time you'll pass during these different steps isn't the same for everybody.
You'll go on with motivation, capacities interest and, the most powerful one, emulation.

Emulation can come from yourself, from your friends, or simply the fact that you want to be better.

Be better, but why ?
For the pleasure to have a mini, a titan, an army on display and be proud of it.
To give a smile to your game partner, who'll be proud to have such an army in front of his.
For the pleasure you'll have to be better and better with every mini you put on the bench.

One of the last post from ZenComics illustrates what I'm talking about :

Emulation helped me to go back to our Holly Hobby.
It helped me to be back on the bench and start a new project.

I'd like to thank all the people I met during the ten years I practiced our Hobby.
Without you, I won't be were I'm today.
