Romain takes a look at the cork basing material from Antenocitis Workshop.
Good review, the large and boulder sizes look interesting imo. The other sizes are like ballast or fish tank rocks…
How about when you glue a mini to the cork boulder? Is that solid enough or do you absolutely have to pin the model? Any advice on how to do that?
Superglue will infiltrate the cork, making small plastic minis to stick quite well on large cork sufaces, but keep in mind that cork is a bit flexible and can sometimes break if you pull/stretch it (the inner structure is often unpredictable). I would recommand to pin large or metal minis through the cork down to the base if you want it strong. Just my own experience, but i never tried Antenocitis’ stuff.
Thank you, you’re kind !
The Antenociti cork is just like any other cork, and just as fragile. Always paint and varnish…
And… Pin it, pin it, pin it.
Is it real mini rocks or do you just need to treat yourself to a new blade in the x-acto
I find there’s always a special pleasure in putting a new blade in the scalpel…
I just needed a new blade… But this is cork, it’s slightly rubbery, which explains how little gain there was for the blade.
Yes I know all to well the challenge of using cork. I did most of my army on them. As mentioned I need to go back and pin many of them. Its the storing case that always “freed” my little guys as i remove them form it. so Like so many others before me, pin is the best way to fix this
