Hobby Tip: Brass Crenelation
Whilst cutting symbols from the Iron Hands etched brass from Forgeworld, I noticed that two of the sprue bars were crenelated. This has to be intentional, but it surprised me that I hadn’t noticed sooner. The brass is a bit tough to cut, especially neatly, so removing all the branches from the crenelated strips is a bit tricky. A metal file is best used to smooth the edges after clipping and cutting.
Once removed and cleaned, you can easily attach the strip to the edge of a vehicles or walker. Since I was assembling a Mortis-pattern Contemptor, he was the target.
The brass glues without much persuasion using superglue. Hold the brass with some tweezers or clippers so that you don’t also glue your finger to the model
