I am now back home after my usual week of pre-Salute fun at the Heresy workshop! Despite a lot of you thinking that it's all cocktail parties and celebrity after-show parties, I've managed to take some pics this year so you can see what goes on before
Salute for the Heretics!
I've set up three threads - some with more pics than others...this is the first, showing our Prep!
I arrived at the workshop to the usual cheery greeting!
One of the usual tasks awaiting me, primarily because Reaperman hates doing it, was blistering up the bases...
First, get a blister pack
Load it up with bases to the desired weight
fold and add an insert
Remove the little plastic chit from the hanging hole (Reaperman doesn't often do this!)
Then add to the small collection of packs you've already done...and start again!
All of the blisters are packed this way - by hand - and for the smaller packs of bases, we count them out by hand to make sure you're not shortchanged!
In addition to this, because the codes on almost all of the range changed this year, we had to relabel EVERYTHING! I put together a little guide on this too for all you wannabe minions out there!
First, take incorrectly labelled blister
Apply new label with correct coding and price
Add to the small collection of blisters to be hung for the show
This doesn't cover all of the prep, but hopefully shows you just how much work is done beforehand to get your miniatures to you in those superb looking packs!
Reaperman started the Salute prep before Christmas and Boris, Reaper and I worked some pretty long hours this week to make sure everything was set to go... http://forum-of-doom.com/index.php?topic=14662.msg237591#msg237591
