I am trying to give my orcs the feel of being looters and raiders. I have been looking everywhere for a good source of barrels and buckets and such but have had little luck? Anyone mind sharing where you buy them from?

SICK! I was considering making one with those thin pieces of wood they sell at hobby centers but they don't exactly bend. This is perfect!

Actually balsa wood is very soft. I bet you could make a barrel like Miakacir's, as long as you get something thin. And getting the wood moist will help it bend without breaking. It might work. thumbsup

Correction: It's not a tutorial made by me Wink

But yes, I also think you could make it from balsa, but using cardboard is way cheaper Razz

Try this:
http://www.blacktreedesign.com/restofworld/home.php?cat=2310

Specifically look for Ackland Accessories. The website layout has changed since I last visited, but I bookmarked the site specifically because it had great table accessories. It might require some hunting though.

For bending balsa wood, i hear that digging it in boiling water works. I have never tried this though and i can only imagine burning myself and ending up with wood pulp for all my effort Razz

steam works better than immersion for balsa, just old it over a wedged on kettle's spout for a second and bend away.

yes, you'll burn yourself Smile

use fliers / heamostats and towels Smile
