Title: Forge World Etched Brass
Description: Advice Needed

Hraesvelgr - November 8, 2011 02:52 PM (GMT)
I've been thinking of doing some Emperor's Children in Mk III iron armour from Forge World. As I'm no sculptor or indeed a good free hand painter I thought about using the Small Imperial Eagles etched brass sheet, also from Forge World, and attaching them to the wide plain space on the breastplate.
I was wondering if anyone has worked with the small eagle etched brass before and could offer any advice as to whether or not they would fit.

They fit just fine! I used the ones on the bottom right corner for chest eagles if i remember correctly.

To apply heat the piece with a flame to make it more mallable.
Place Brass Etch where you want it and then use a pin to apply the superglue.
Let Capillary action suck the glue under the brass,use the tinest bit.

Cut the brass off while it is still inside the bag so when it flies off the bag catches it.
Also get a good pair of tweezers.
