Making rivets and other small shapes

To make small, round shapes out of cardboard use an office hole punch (available also with funny hole shapes nowadays) or better still a DIY punching tool used to make holes in leather belts and the like

Tool for making holes

You can see how it is applied on the Eldar Portal:

I have recently painted my collection of Heretic Astartes which contains both very old models -- like the Space Crusade dreadnoughts -- and some very recent ones. I feel their design went the whole circle and returned to its roots. Excellent! »
