    Mr Tough Guy got a reaction from executor in Looking for Decals   
    Company B has a service that does custom decals:
    http://www.companyb.biz/
     
    But if you're only after 1 decall for a single ship, that might be a bit too costly, you can always buy decal paper and print your own, which is probably a lot simpler and cheaper

    Mr Tough Guy got a reaction from cvallinie in Builder of the Gencon '17 Tattoine Table?   
    I thought it was Rob Hawkins, he did do a few tables for FFG, but I can't find a build for Tatooine on his blog, so maybe it was somebody else, or I'm just not looking hard enough.
    I did find builds for his Hoth, Lothal and Sullust tables though

    Mr Tough Guy got a reaction from Stronghammer in Modification Help   
    Did a quick pic in photoshop to show how I would do it, I would take of the wings and drill a hole straight through the body (in blue) then connect the wings with a pin (in green) through the hole in the body, this will allow the wings to rotate along the (blue) axis. If the hole and pin are the same size friction will keep them in place, but more than likely they won't stay in place, so I'd add a few sets of magnets to either sides of the hole and pin to keep it all in place . in hindsight I'd probably not put the magnets as close to the hole as I drew in the pic, but you get the idea, just keep both pairs to an equal length away from the axis and with the polarity at the same side so they stick at both orientations

    Mr Tough Guy got a reaction from AllDeadDave in SpiderMana’s Future Painting Thread—Where are the Rebels?   
    All my rebels have a Rebel Alliance starbird symbol painted on somewhere, I don't know how confident you are in your paintskills, but with a bit of practise it's really not that hard, although ymmv
     

    The Rodian and the second from the right have theirs on their back packs

    Mr Tough Guy got a reaction from TauntaunScout in Gaps where arms connect on Rebel Troopers?   
    One thing I Always do is before glueing the mini, is take a mug of hot water, assemble the mini and chuck it in the water for a few minutes, the hot water softens the plastic and will give you a better fit especially if you press down a bit you can remove most gaps, this is worked for so far and I haven't had to take out the greenstuff yet

    Mr Tough Guy got a reaction from Recon00 in How do you paint faces?   
    I tend to paint the eyes first as I usually start from a dark brown base on the flesh , I paint the white of the eyes as a short stripe then dot them with a dark colour, usually black or a dark brown, then paint the rest of the face as usuall. You could paint the eyes last but it will mean you will have to clean up your flesh if you make any mistakes, doing them first means that any mistakes made are easier to correct. But honestly it's just a case of brush control, make sure your paint is diluted properly, and you have a good point on your brush and the rest is just practice.
     
    For an advance technique you could even paint the iris and pupil seperatly, a blue/green/brown dot for the iris, folowed by a small dot of black for the pupil and if you want to get super fancyn an even tinier spot of white in a corner for reflection, sounds crazy but I've done it on 28mm warhammer models so it should be doable on Legion models too

    To post pics from imgur copy the direct link URL then on the forum insert other media and pick insert image from URL and past the link

     
    Another option is and that will also work with other filehosts is to right click the image, press properties and copy the Address (URL) and again insert  the image from URL in the forum

    Hope that helps, I usually never click on links, if you can't be bothered to post a pic, I can't be bothered to click a link
