How-to Tuesday: Long Gunner Barrels

I don’t know if you’ve ever had a look at the Long Gunner models, but they’re classic Privateer Press models.  One piece, loads of detail.  However, like everything else, they have some fiddly bits.

How-to Tuesday: Convert Cinerators into Bastions, Continued

Today, I’ll cover the 2-handed pose I was able to make, and Thursday, I’ll have more on the sculpting.
