Been a while since I had anything to post. Put this up on YouTube a while ago and I thought it might have broad enough appeal to be worth posting here. It's a little pinning video for pinning really small, PITA bits. Hope you like it!

I have seen you demonstrate that pinning technique early in your blog, but it is still one of the best modelling tips that I have picked up in my entire hobby career.

Cannot believe I hadn't seen it before.

Very good technique. My Batwoman has snapped through her knees, going to see if I can't adapt this somehow.

This will probably be one of the best looking tournaments going on at Adepticon. Between Gitz’s beautiful terrain and painted armies should have a lot folks stopping by for a look.

I hope so. Kind of depends on where we are.

Yeah SL... this is kind of a big deal. Hope it works out.
