Nice Work!

Super job on the hair!

I am just learning how to do blonds....

See what you mean about drilling the gun. I do that all the time! I have a Dremel bit, a very tiny engraver that works wonders for starting the barrel drilling process.

What part of Norway? I have been through Bergen and Oslo, and some of my Swedish relatives have a summer home in Norway, just can't remember where! (was there 35 years ago....)

Would you mind posting a pic of the engraver thingie? I do it by hand, and it's bound to go wrong sometime soon. :P

The hair is painted with yellow paint, washed with Sepia, a reddish brown tone, then drybrushed with a very light skin/bone white colour. For highlights.

 

As for your question; I live in a small city, 1.5 hours north of Oslo. Called Hamar.

It's a nice place, in my opinion. It's built on the east side of Norways biggest lake.

They have a whole line of different sizes, I think mine is 105 Engraving Cutter. the little ball cutter thing on the end of mine is smaller than the "." on my keyboard. Maybe .5mm or so. I also have a slightly larger one. Both are very useful!

 

God Jul!

Oh Gott Nytt Ar!

I tend too just use a xacto knife tip & start a hole. After that it's hand drill time.

 

Nice work! Need to order 4 H'free figs in the next couple months for victi errr PCs minis in a RCon game next year.

I use a set of "Excel Hobby Blade Corp Drill Bit Assorted, #61-80 (20), Plastic Stand, EXL55510" drill bits and a good Pin Vise (I use a Tamiya No.112 Precision Pin Vise) to drill out barrels.

You do want a good pin vise since the cheap ones tend to start or get off of straight and that can screw up precise work like this.

That set comes with 20 drill bits sized from 0.039 to 0.0135 inches.

The bits are also very useful if you need to make custom sized pins by grinding a larger pin down.

Hasslefree Miniatures are indeed well detailed.  I love their figures.

      Presenting Tzandi, a member of Monkey's Troupe from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      Been painting this one on and off for a while, as I could only work on her teeny tiny details in small bursts (She essentially feels like a much larger scale mini that's been shrunk down). I think taking my time paid off as I'm pretty pleased with the results.
      This also means I've actually finished a set of something for a change (At least until Long Ma the dragon comes out):-

      Presenting The Bride of Nurgle, the leader of the Nurgle warband in the game Warhammer:- Underworlds by Games Workshop.
       
      I don't usually post my Underworlds stuff here, but I felt this one deserved it.
      Annoyingly, I did a really good job painting her face but you can't see most of it once her fringe is attached.

      Because we need more badelf fighting ladies.

      Kev White, the sculptor, seems to have paid attention during "The First Avenger." Great uniform details. But I've already got the muscular and dynamic Zenith (50080) in that role, so I went with our neighbors to the North. The shield is, again, my addition.

      Superhero team-up time!

      Dungeon-crawling! They say it's a young humanoid's game, but that's not always true. A lifetime of experience and the survival skills necessary to get to one's golden or even orichalcum years are pretty useful.

      Here's Sebastian, a knight of some experience from Hasslefree. Well armored and cautious, probably why he's still around. 

      And another, less cautious but equally seasoned adventurer, Conran the Barbarian, also from Hasslefree.




      More pictures: 
       

      Here he is bonding with the grandkids (Serris, 02997 and Cuth Wolfson, 03701)

       
      and at his day job. 

      (Conran is definitely a version of Pratchett's Cohen the Barbarian, who conceded that after a few hours of fighting a ten-thousand-man army he might start getting tired too--but so would his enemies, as they would be running uphill at that point.)
       
      Fighter and barbarian-thief are a good start, but a well-rounded party should also have an arcanist and a healer. Jos Gebbler, 14317, and Estra,  60198, seem like good fits. A combined three centuries of adventuring experience pays off!


       
      But there are threats yet older than they...

      Printed this out a while ago and made a base for her with the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Roller and a twig.
      The primer came out a bit chalky will try to remedy that. But for now I've basecoated her boots.
      Leather can be a bit rough so it's alright.
