Split from this post!

C'mon Kiwi! Even I can do sculpt slings! Heheheh... seriously, I think you can do it. This is how I did a couple back in 2003... and I REALLY had no idea what I was doing!

What you need:
- Green Stuff (duh!)

- Pin Vice... you need one to pin models, and since your skills are growing exponentially, I suggest you get one. They are cheap, ~$5. Unless you get GW's which is $15. Shocked


- Staples... That is what I use for pinning. Sure you can get brass rods (the BEST!), but for little models (not critical pieces) I still use staples. They are small, thin and strong (metal) and ULTRA cheap (free!)


- For sling bullets you could make GS balls or use little sand-rocks.
OPTIONAL: Metal or plastic balls... like for a BB Gun. They are CHEAP (~$5) and plentiful (the counts are in the THOUSANDS!) Y



Process:
* Take the hand you want the sling (preferable with a weapon or something) and clip the excess (blade?) so you leave a handle.

* DRILL the handle, and make a PIN.

* Glue the staple, but rather than making the PIN small, leave it a little long... it will help you support the sling!

* While that dries (should not take long), make couple of green stuff ribbons. Their width should NOT be much wider than the BB Gun ball.

* Put the BB Gun ball and fold the ribbon (making a "U").

* Attach the long parts to your PIN.

DONE!!!

Alternatively, you could buy ($8.95)... depending how many you need.

That's a cool method Mordheimer - I'll give it a go on the next slings I do (those pre-made slings on the other hand look pretty cool too).

Laney cheers
