Just a Question about WGF Ashigaru Yari

Post#1 » Nov 09 2014 11:02

Hello there ATT, you might know me from my snow cadre, or from my few posts, but probably not. I have just bought some Ashigaru Yari from Wargames Factory, and have immediately been struck by a large problem; it seems that I need to drill holes into the back of the bodies so that I can add the back banners. Now, my question is; what way would you recommend drilling these holes? With a drill bit, or with some other way? Please answer quick.

A couple of photos of the models or a link would help as I have no idea of what they look like, how they are constructed or locations for the holes.

It is hard to offer advice without this info :-(

As was mentioned, without seeing the models, hard to help. That being said, off the top of my head, use a pin vise with a small drill bit... Very small drill bit!

The important thing though is the pin vise itself, do you have one?

I just fixed the problem, I used a fat needle, heated over a hob and then gently pressed to make the holes. It needs a lots of attention later on, to clear the edges, and make the surface flat again. It is a bit of a faff, but it works. I did not have a small enough drill bit for the job, and neither do I have a pin vice. Thanks for all my replies, but since I found a solution, could an admin please shut down this topic? Thanks.
