Hey Cancer.

It is indeed a plasticard strip. No heating was involved I just cut it off an A4 sheet of really thin plastic card.

I cut it to size then check the length and checked again. I then used plastic glue and glued it in place and jobs a good un....is what I wished happened.

The only reason it worked at all was because of the back pack. I tucked the top of the strap behind the backpack and then bent the strap round the torso and then managed to tuck the bottom under the backpack too. If it wasn't for this it would have kept pinging off. During the drying time I had to keep moving it back into place as it kept on sliding ever so slightly due to the pressure.

In hindsight I should have used super glue (where I'd have added a little bit at a time) as the plastic glue would not dry fast enough and because it kept moving it melted some of the details.

As for plastic glue I hope everyone stops buying from GW and gets this one instead. Its massively superior and much less wasteful oh and you have control over it too.

Hope that helps

Peter

I always assumed the wood came from giant mushrooms...like on 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth'.

with reguards to the glue: who buys GW glue anyway? i never have done. poundland sell 10 pack of super glue for you know what price and the local toy shop sells plastic glue that half the price anyway. each time i buy something there they ask if i want some glue etc.
you guys got a good link for the plas card? i would like to have a play with some.

GuardianLight - Giant mushrooms also makes sense to me.

squevil - For bog standard plastic card (like I used on Beaumont) I've got an excellent model railway shop which is a 5 min walk away from my house.

But I bought the double tread plate plastic card (the stuff I used for the bases of my walkways) from here: http://www.antenocitisworkshop.com/ and I got a very prompt service, they have loads of different sizes and types too.

Tad confused as to what happened to my previous post....Oh well.

squevil - I suggested the very same website as Cassius. Ordered from the them in the past and they delivered promptly too.

I'm lucky enough to have a really good model railway shop 10 mins walk from my house now so I don't need to order online any more.

My only advice about using plasticard is make sure it is square before you start cutting it up. I once bought some and it was slightly wonky.

In other news I have finally, after 16 years, finished painting all my Necromunda bulkheads. Now I need to work on the plasticard floor sections.... I should have it all finished by 2026. lol

I've finished another one.

This is Hank "Bad" Lucky

Image

Named after Woody in Toy Story, due to the red neckerchief.

I'm pretty happy how he turned out as I wasn't really enjoying painting him. I'm really pleased with the neckerchief pattern and the bleached thigh bones.

I've now got another blunderbuss armed scavvy and a shaman in the works.

you have painted him to a very nice standard, why did you not enjoy painting that?

squevil - Cheers. I just wasn't in the mood for painting, I wanted to do some converting and modelling. I also found a terrible mold line on the left holster when I was painting it.

I have a rule (that occasionally gets broken): I have to finish painting model A before I get to create model B. It keeps me productive and means that I will actually get a painted scavvy gang together.

To give me break from the Inquisition and they say a change is as good as a rest.

It's back onto the Scavvies.....they need to be playable - minus dogs and zombies by 6th October. The good news with these guys is the grunts don't take thaaaat long to paint.

I should be painting the two scavvies at the back of the picture but Games Workshop have done it again. Another fantastic plastic character in a blister! This time the Goblin Shaman who have the coolest staff is getting scavvified! I'll be using the staff top on my scavvy boss.

Originally I planned on having this little guy as a bog standard scavvy but when I got him perched on the rocks I found my winged mutant. I'm so excited I'm sharing a very WIP shot (doesn't even have a right hand yet). He sort of reminds me of a very ugly butterfly or moth....even though he has bat wings. Oh and I'll be changing his head to that of a screaming ghoul.
