Hullo,
Inspired by the recent discussion on bent spears I made a short video about the way I make wire spears for my figs. Apologies for my accent and for the fiddly method I demonstrate.

Cheers,

Good demonstration, Aksu - thanks!  Also a nice presentation of the LoA pikemen.

Really good stuff Aksu.  Thumbs up

Your hammer and 'anvil' look far nicer than the ones I use.  Wink

This is one of those sneaky videos. It looks easy when Aksu does it, but my efforts weren't quite so successful.

Apologies for my accent.

Accent?  Accent? What accent?  Undecided Nothing at all when compared to the teensie- weensie (curiously predicted as teenage Wednesday by my wonderful software!)  bit of an accent picked up by Brigadier Sir Bernard Proudfoot-Smith when in Germany, as recorded in Blackadder goes Forth Episode 5!  Cheesy Wink

Thank you chaps for the feedback, much appreciated I'm sure.
I wonder what the next 30 second tip should be... How to make custom shade terrain paste by mixing textured acrylic paste and paint perhaps? Any ideas? How to use super glue as a first aid after unfortunate scalpel accidents might get us sued by grieving relatives, so that one is out, I'm afraid Smiley
