Progress! Four new beards and four new bases!
Three are the traditional stack type – they look like tubes with lots of stripes. The other I tried something new. I took a big glob of GS, shaped it roughly like a big billowy beard that was tied loosly at the tip. I then drew my sharpest tool through it from top to bottom in strokes. Lastly, I capped it with a knot. It’ll get a nice sharp bit or mini axe head as a capper once it dries.
More to come soon!
I’m back from my trip, and wanted to post something easy tonight. The following pictures are of models that I received primed black. The primer hadn’t landed on the models quite right, and they had the texture of sandpaper. I’ll likely be priming them white anyway, so a paint strip and de-glue bath was required. This is the result (after a bit of re-assembly):
Not too shabby, eh?
