Pinning

Postby WaaaghDynasty » Fri Jan 27, 2017 3:13 pm

I am now hooked on pinning after I grabbed one of those cheapy Amazon pinning kits with a drill and small rods. All my other Genestealer Cult members have broken off their bases, but pinning holds them in like green on an A-Ork!

One question though: matching up the drilled holes. I've been trying for 25 minutes to precision match a hole I drill in the base to a hole I drill in my cultist's foot, and I've missed twice. Any tips?

I've tried smearing some GW paint on the bottom of the foot to highlight the spot to dril, and it doesn't work as well as you might think.

Thanks!

I put the pin in one side (e.g, the foot) and then place the model about where I want it to be. Twist a bit (gently!), and I have a small scar in the target spot.

I just did this to 130 acolytes and metamorphs. I think the best way to do it is just pin 1 foot. If you try to pin both feet it becomes quite difficult to line it up perfectly. 1 foot pinned is plenty strong.
