    In today's article I will bring you closer to my way of drilling guns on Warhammer 40000 Ork Nob.

    In the first picture we see the necessary tools, keep in mind that the WOWSTICK battery drill is not necessary, and a manual mini drill (pin vice) can also be used, the important thing is that you have 3-4 drill bits of 0.8-2mm thickness available or a little more, depending on the desired width of the hole at the end of the procedure.

    Click for enlarged picture

    First, let's make an initial, or pilot, hole on the miniature, this hole serves us so that the drill bit and further drilling remain in the same place, i.e. centered.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Then we continue to drill with gradually wider drill bits, until we reach the desired diameter of the hole:

    In the event that further drilling goes out of the center, and given that this procedure is applicable to plastic and resin miniatures, feel free to use the drill bit as a router, for the purpose of re-centering and widening the hole.

    U današnjem članku ću vam približiti moj način bušenja cijevi na Warhammer 40000 Ork Nobu.

    Na prvoj slici vidimo potrebne alate, imajte na umu da baterijska bušilica WOWSTICK nije nužna, te ručna mini bušilica (pin vice) može isto tako poslužiti, ono što je bitno jest da imate na raspolaganju 3-4 svrdla od 0.8-2mm debljine ili malo više, ovisno o željenoj širini rupe na kraju postupka.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Prvo krenemo na minijaturi napraviti početnu, odnosno pilot rupu, ova rupa nam služi kako bi svrdlo i daljnje bušenje ostali na istom mjestu, tj. centrirani.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Zatim nastavljamo bušiti sa postepeno širim svrdlima, sve dok ne postignemo željeni promjer rupe:

    Click for enlarged picture

    U slučaju da daljnje bušenje izađe iz centra te obzirom da je ovakav postupak primjenjiv na plastičnim i rezinskim minijaturama, slobodno koristite svrdlo kao glodalicu, u svrhu ponovnog centriranja i proširivanja rupe.

    Sometimes I get particularly lazy and don't pay attention when magnetizing or stacking miniatures. Whoever admits, half is added to him, and then the distance between the parts of the figure is visible to me from a kilometer away.

    Horror, fear, cringe, end.

    But the Omnissiah has a solution for this predicament too! Zelenstvarčica, greenstuff, is otherwise an excellent epoxy resin for filling such gaps. I didn't use GS as filler this time, because then it wouldn't have the benefit of the magnet - I want to still be able to swap weapons on the model. I used Greenstuff to model purity seals, which I used to hide the gap so that it would not be too obvious.

    Nekad bivam posebno lijen i ne pazim prilikom magnetiziranja ili slaganja minijatura. Tko prizna pola mu se doda, i onda mi razmak između djelova figure bude vidljiv s kilometra udaljenosti.

    Horror, strah, užas, kraj.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Ali Omnissiah ima riješenje i za ovu nedaću! Zelenstvarčica, greenstuff, je inače odlična epoxy smola za fillanje ovakvih razmaka. Ovaj put nisam GS koristio kao filler, jer onda ne bi imao korist od magneta - želim i dalje izmjenjivati oružja na modelu. Greenstuffom sam modelirao purity sealove kojima sam sakrio razmak da ne bude preočit.

    Like the previous two times, we started the last part of this tutorial by shaking the paint on a vortex mixer (colloquially called a jerkmeister).

    Click for enlarged picture

    This time we went through the topics of highlighting and layering. Basically, these are the same thing, because they are based on highlighting the more protruding parts of the miniature with gradually lighter colors in a smaller and smaller area, so that certain details of the figure attract attention.

    Click for enlarged picture

    It is not out of place to mention here, as this was Daniel's third painting lesson, that he had already mastered the strengthening of the hand, as well as the use of the stand for painting the figure.

    Click for enlarged picture

    With the colors Basic Flesh, Golden Skin and Light skin, he highlighted the bumps on the face.

    Click for enlarged picture

    He highlighted the golden metal parts with Viking Gold paint, although the lines are not thin enough, the author of these lines believes that he managed well, considering that it was the first time he did something like this, which counts as fine motor skills.

    Then he highlighted the metal details on the chains, paws and weapons with Heavy Metal paint.

    Finally, he used Deep Red and Antares Red to highlight the folds on the back of the cloak.

    Click for enlarged picture

    All in all, an interesting experience for me as a teacher, as well as for Danijela as a student. He was definitely interested in painting miniatures, however, due to the lack of space and time to pursue this hobby, that interest will wait for better days.

    In the hope that better days will come as soon as possible, I want to thank him for his teaching and patience, as well as for his time.

    Kao i prethodna dva puta, posljednji dio ovog instruiranja smo započeli protresanjem boje na vrtložnoj mješalici (kolokvijalno zvani drkmeister).

    Click for enlarged picture

    Ovaj puta smo prolazili kroz teme highlighting-a i layering-a. U osnovi su ovo iste stvari, jer se zasnivaju na isticanju izbočenijih dijelova minijature postepeno svjetlijim bojama na sve manjem području, kako bi pojedini detalji figure privukli pažnju.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Ovdje nije zgorega spomenuti, kako je Danijelu ovo bio treći sat bojanja, da je već dobro ovladao učvršćivanjem ruke, kao i korištenjem stalka za bojanje figure.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Bojama Basic Flesh, Golden Skin i Light skin je istaknuo izbočine na licu.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Zlatno metalne dijelove je istaknuo bojom Viking Gold, iako linije nisu dovoljno tanke, autor ovih redaka smatra da se dobro snašao, obzirom da je prvi puta ovakvo nešto radio što se ubraja u finu motoriku.

    Zatim je bojom Heavy Metal istaknuo metalne detalje na lancima, šapi i oružju.

    Naposljetku je na stražnjoj strani plašta bojama Deep Red i Antares Red istaknuo nabore.

    Click for enlarged picture

    Sve u svemu, interesantno iskustvo i za mene kao učitelja, kao i za Danijela kao učenika. Definitivno ga je zainteresiralo bojanje minijatura, međutim, zbog nedostatka prostora i vremena za bavljenje ovim hobijem će taj interes pričekati neke bolje dane.

    U nadi da ti bolji dani što prije dođu, želim mu se zahvaliti na učenju i pokazanom strpljenju, kao i odvojenom vremenu.

    I fixed five Space Marines on a wooden slat of approx. 40 cm length with patafix (six could have gone without any problems). In this way, I was able to apply the black spray primer to several figures at the same time and thus significantly speed up the preparation for painting.

    Top Tip Plus: When you pick up bakery products yourself in supermarkets, don't throw plastic gloves in the trash! Use them to protect your hands when spraying the primer on the figures.

    Na drvenu letvicu duljine cca 40cm patafiksom sam učvrstio pet Space Marinaca (moglo je ići i šest bez problema). Na taj način sam mogao nanositi crni prajmer u spreju istovremeno na više figura i time osjetno ubrzao pripremu za bojanje.

    Top Tip Plus: Kada u supermarketima sami uzimate pekarske proizvode ne bacajte plastične rukavice u smeće! Iskoristite ih za zaštitu ruku prilikom sprejanja prajmera na figure.
