I've been working on and off with those Deamonettes over the last couple weeks. Then the thought occurred to me that with Planetstrike coming out soon, I could probably use another elite choice.
I've had a fiend of Slaanesh sitting in my drawer for a couple months, so I decided to put it together.
Since I have a lot of metal models in this deamon army, I decided to invest in this:
No, it is not a sex toy. It is just a provocatively shaped craft hand drill. It has made drilling holes in pewter so much easier. (Edit: For those of you who want your own, here's a link to the store where I bought mine: http://www.dickblick.com/products/fiskars-hand-drill/)
The part I was most concerned about was the rear most legs on the fiend. The model has four legs, but stands on two. I was concerned that the joint holding those legs on would be weak. I knew I had to pin them.
Th drill did an awesome job. In fact I was able to drill straight through the model in just about a minute.
I'll eventually run a pin through the hips and drill a hole in both legs.
The only downside to this whole endeavor (and I'm still working on getting it together) happened when I tried to drill a hole in the base of the rear leg so I could pin it to the base. unfortunately, I put too much pressure on it and snapped off the bit in the hole. I learned that you just have to let the drill spin and do it's job. Don't push it.
