Quick tip for removing emblems

Welcome back dear readers and followers!

Most wargamers will know this pain, trying to paint that one model to fit your army but the iconography is from a different army. Companies like Games Workshop are making it harder and harder for people to cross certain models over to other armies. For example Space Marines are getting more and more chapter specific iconography.

Last week I found a really good way to remove that. Dewey Haines shared a picture from Nova Open Tabletop Wargaming explaining how to do this.

Credits for the picture go to Dewey Haines
As you can see he used a chisel shaped scalpel blade to remove the Ravenwing icon. This would have been really hard to do with a regular knife, a hobby file or sandpaper.

If you want to know where to get blades like this, a quick google search on the words 'hobby knife set' led me to this Amazone site.

So I really hope this quick tip helps you in your daily hobby.

Thank you for reading and I hope to see you next time!
