Legio Mortis II

Both feet cleaned up, drilled out and ready for pinning:

I tried to drill them out with a power Dremel, but didn't like the lack of control. So switched the 3mm drill bit to my GW hand drill and that produced much tidier results. In each case I predrilled with a much smaller bit to ensure it was central. The space is exactly 3mm, so there is no room to be off centre:

Next up, the pinned feet. At this stage the joints are still fully articulable (a little more cleaning up required on the big toe):

The pin from the big and rear toes extends into the ankle socket:

This will assist in pinning the lower leg in place:

Next week - the legs!


  1. Excellent - All the time you take doing this sort of pinning and posing will definitely pay off in the end. Keep up the great work, man!

    1. I think it'll also be really useful for playing with the stance for glueing things in place. I may well drive some thick pins up through the base of the foot after the legs are attached in the right position.
