PostSubject: Hrud conversions (and Tube-y things)   Thu Mar 04, 2010 10:05 am

If there's one thing I've noticed about GW Fantasy and 40k, it's two simple equations:

Tube-y things = 40k
No tube-y things = fantasy.

That being said, as I start converting some Hrud, any tips on where to buy thin, tiny tubes, to use as respirators and "power links" and such? Hardware? Craft? Michaels?

Guitar strings a good for tubes and wires.
And thin wires are good too. I often use wire from old headsets.

Network wire (RJ45) is GREAT!!! They have 6 thin wires inside, great for ... wires!

Found some "chain" at the local craft store... doesn't bend too well, but I found a way around that.

I actually have 7 already done... I used Night Goblins (Battle for Skull Pass) for the bodies, pig iron heads

...and some weapons from the Grot plastic kit.

I'd post photos of the WIP, but I have no camera... I tried using the cell phone cam, but it was a complete blur. The funniest part is, with their gas-masked metal heads and the torn green-stuff cloaks, they look like a legion of midget Doctor Dooms.

I am shocked... SHOCKED that you would suggest such a thing!

Besides, most kids I steal from tend to have "film" based cameras, rather than digital.

Since I *REALLY* want to see the Hrud, I can "confiscate" some student's camera. Kids theses days tend to have a digital camera on them at all times...

Hey... In Brazil you never know which crazy tourist would be wearing a ....

Man... we just hijacked the thread. Embarassed Sorry. Embarassed

Post the damned pictures! We demand that either you or GW makes the Hrud a reality... and since my bitching have taken me nowhere, I demand YOU do it. Don't care how; Go to Walmart, buy a $5 SD Card, put it on a demonstration camera and take the damned pictures. Break in your neighbors house. Ask the Brazilian Mafia to confiscate one for you. Ahhh screw the non-hijacking of threads! WE WANT PICTURES! bounce
