Statuesque!

With a headswap these are still pretty darn good models, despite being on the more chunky side.

Nice! New life to old models.

But why does the original on the right seem shorter at the shoulders, compared to the modified ones? Did you do something for their legs too?

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

I have modified various aspects of the models, but not intentionally the scale of the right hand guy. Maybe illusion of the image?

PS: Major delivery arrived, updates coming. It's a game changer

The new movement trays i have created are epic .

So to conclude, it's a custom MDF skirmish style tray , with 2mm gaps, to allow metal models to sit nicelly, embedded in an X Base of War resin movement tray, with 3M 20mm magnetic cubes in each position.

Then every model is reasonably secure , and won't fall over easily.

I've had a small pin drill I use mostly for things like hands for spears, pikes, and occasionally other weapons. :::cheers:::

I have myself one of these...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/5000-15000rpm-Multitool-Accessories-Polishing-Engraving/dp/B07NZB2J76/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=ginour+engraver&qid=1610557974&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&smid=A5X3NAZ5MMJXL&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExS1BUUVhNSkdWUFZWJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzg0Nzk5MVRBOVpBUzkzMDRKUCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwODU2OTc1MzAxWVM1ME5DVEVIQSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

Rotary too a-la Dremel but much cheaper considering it's cordless and a nice small size. Comes with 2 sizes of chucks/collets and a couple of drill bits, as well as a load of useful sanding discs, buffers, grinding bits etc. Honestly one of the best things I've bought in recent times for my hobby, been really useful with a burr tool to lightly file away unwanted details, motifs, icons etc. in areas where it would be really tricky to get a file into.

I just need to get a set of more varied chucks/collets so it can take much finer precision drill bits as I'm still doing the really small stuff with a pin vice.

Awesome! Where do these keep coming from Mr Chumley? Do you have a small forge in the garage something? 😺

I put together a 20 man Kislev Militia using models from GW's history that fit the Kislev mould, plus on guy from Black Chapel minis. All metals.
