I hope you'll bend his sword back straight first!

Actually, that's the Senior Officer with the bent sword, and... I'm workin on it, but it's not really being terribly cooperative.

Yet another reason I prefer plastic minis to metals.

Try some long nosed pliers used the length of the sword to straighten it up in one go, rather than pinch down the sword in sections.

Little update: The most brutal thunderstorm has hit the area and it's raining beyond sanity, so no priming today.

Also, in regards to the Senior Officer's sword... it's as straight as it's going to get. Nothing (and I mean nothing) I've been able to attempt has done anything other than threaten to break the thing off.

so, hopefully, everyone will forgive the slightly curvy leading edge of his blade.

if not... oh, well. I'm sure I'll live.

Last suggestion - try heating it slightly? I'll forgive you!

lol, every time i hear metal mini, a shiver goes down my spine. and ive never owned one.

thats why i am waiting fo the plastic slann mage priest to come out (if it ever does)
but anyway, cant wait to see them painted and about the sword, space marine lascannons tend to be a bit curved to, probably why my friend can't hit with them lol

buit anyway good luck, looks like you will need it.

Looking forward to seeing your army done. I can feel your pain on the number of minis you are going to have to paint, I really can.

The Command HQ, a commisar, the wounded trooper that came with the HQ, and one of my many Junior Officers have now been primed.

There's some errands to run before work tonight, but after work?

There will be paint!
