The putty'n'paint tutorial link is down.  Looks like Frank's moved to a freewebs address, but hasn't brought the tutorial with him. :?  Ah well.  I've removed the link from the list, but I still have the pdf if anyone wants a look.

This one's gone phut.

Quote
The Beginners Guide To Sculpting Miniature Figures From Scratch - Drew Williams' PDF guide.  Labelled as 'beginners', though relatively advanced.

I really should've downloaded it.  I don't suppose anyone else did?

The Heresy Minis armature guide's lost it's photos too, or so it seems to me.  We're losing more than we're gaining!

Also, sorry Burano.  I'll get those links in!  Except the megaupload one...

Brill, thanks. :)

Is it okay to stick that dropbox link up in the list?  At least temporarily?

Not sure. According to what the creator of the tutorial says the weapons were ordered by Wyrd Miniatures back in 2007.
