Knitting the Soul Weaver: Warmachine's Deneghra 3/5: Magnetic Machinations

Magnets are cool. There is no doubt about it. Being able to swap and use all the weapons that come with a kit is really fun, but also, for our big kits, having some parts magnetized is a great option for storing and moving these monsters around. Here is a little step-by-step of how I magnetized Denghra.

In the WIP picture above you can see all of the joints that I have magnetized.  Ole, who is getting this piece is a serious gamer and he wants to take it down to the game store to show off to his friends.

Knitting the Soul Weaver: Warmachine's Deneghra 2/5: Fighting the Fuzz

The second stage of the Deneghra 3 project is cleaning up the mold lines. Not very much fun, but as any necromantic battle mage can tell you, "preparation is everything." 

Meet the enemy:

Deneghra's wings have a lot of mold lines. They aren't too bad considering how big the model is, but the problem is the soft material Deneghra is made out of. If you use the back of your x-acto knife to try and scrape them off the tend to just get fuzzy.
