Just a quick one today. Progress has been quite steady on the 15mm hydra army with a few units together and being painted. My major shortness in the army so far is a leader. Well I think I've solved that now. Dr Arnim Zola!!!
Ill take some photos of the model once I get some sculpting done on it but its based on one of the GZG light evac suits. Anyway that enough for now I'd best crack on with it all :-)
For quite a while now I've been hankering after a Tube tool so I can add to the conversion repertoire on pretty much everything I make. This post is a bit pic heavy so bear with me.
My roll maker is from Green Stuff World and cost £14 which included postage. Inside the pack you get 2 fine plates, 2 medium plates and 2 large plates, as well as 2 bracket bits to fit on the sides.
The 2 brackets slot onto the sides of the plates at either a 90° or 45° which give you totally different styles of tube. Basically you put a sausage of greenstuff on the bottom plate and roll the top one back wards and forwards until you get the finished item. How hard you roll it and which plates you use depends on what you get.
Below are a couple of bits I made with the tool just to test it. This is only scratching the surface of what can be made but I'll cover some more of that another time if people are interested.
All in all this product is simply brilliant, and although some may not want to spend this much money on a tool I would highly recommend it. If you like to sculpt or convert your minis then the amount of things this tool can be used for is really really useful.
