So here is a WIP shot of my two Skulldred playtesting warband. Lots to do, and I am just aiming for tabletop ready standard at the moment.
Reaper Bones are a really cheap way to do this. My goblins cost $9, three bugbears for $15 and so on. That is retail price- you can probably get cheaper directly online.
One cute trick I have been using is the office cappachino machine to heat up and straighten the bent shafts (ooh missus!) by applying steam directly to specific areas.
