Before i moved onto other parts of the Warlord build, i needed to finish off the pinning for the weapon arms. The mechanism itself is done, so i just needed to finish off the pins.
After scouring my bits boxe's i couldnt find anything to cap the ends of the pins with. Then my eyes driffted to the Reaver and the void shield generators - now they would be ideal!!
So, i cast myself up a mould so i could make some of my own for the pin caps.
Firstly, i drilled in a small hole into the back of the cap.
These held the brass rods perfectly. I recessed them to make sure it was a resonably strong connection.
I then test fitted the pins into the joints and cut the rod to the exact length i needed, which of course is the width of the weapon housing.
So next was the other end of the pin. I cast a few more caps then recessed some 2mm magnets into them.
I then stuck some magnets onto the other end of the brass pins.
The end result was this dumb-bell looking pin!
Once in place, the pins looked great!
Thats one big headache out of the way! Now onto the final parts of the build!
