Dink dank doo!

Very good Falkus, short, succint and simple. I like it.

Though you need to stop biting your fingernails so much or your skin will grow above the end of the nail like mine...not attractive I can tell you. :P

Falkus Kibre - March 3, 2008 09:40 PM (GMT)
well im not a attractive person :P

That's a great method man. May I suggest ProCreate as an alternative material to GS? It files down much better.

Falkus Kibre - March 4, 2008 06:20 PM (GMT)
sure do whatever you want :D

Nice and simple, and very effective.

I think that earns a pinning!

Falkus Kibre - March 5, 2008 06:29 AM (GMT)
cool i didint know this was good enough for a pinning :D

Don't sell yourself short man, it's one of the most seamless conversions I've seen (once painted of course).

Falkus Kibre - March 5, 2008 07:01 PM (GMT)
well im doing a army of these guys i got ten marines im working on and ten more coming in the mail. :D

Rogal Dorn - March 6, 2008 12:46 AM (GMT)
i plan to give it a try, i definatly like how much quicker and cheaper it is compared to other methods

Falkus Kibre - March 9, 2008 12:39 AM (GMT)
Even though I did make this tutorial I got the method from Doghouse just to make that clear.

What is the thickness of the plastic card that you used for this ?

Lion El' Jonson - April 28, 2008 09:10 AM (GMT)
Watch the thread necro, I'll let it slid since its a valid question.

W0lf - January 23, 2009 12:45 AM (GMT)
I think i can do this, i thank you 100 times for showing a simple and manageble way to do this.

Not to criticise but all the other tutorials ive seen require GS equal to jes godwyns anyway.

10/10 for simplicty-> effectiveness.

could i ask for more pics for scale idea. like next to diffrent models etc?

I am going to use this for my Pre Heresy Salamanders
