    Hello everyone,

    This is my first build type thread on here even though I have been browsing the forums for a few years. This is also my first project that I started from scratch. I just thought I would post some pics in case anyone was interested in looking, and also to thank the other members who posted their witch king builds since they were a tremendous help!

    Cardboard base, fiberglass and resin, layer of fiberglass infused bondo, and a layer of the bondo gold stuff. I got all of the bondo and sanding done while visiting my parents one weekend. However, I never got my dowels sanded down to a point, so that is the only thing holding me up at this point. Anyone have any ideas how I could get them down to a point indoors? (I live in an apartment, so noise is an issue)

    Use a knife to carve the dowels somewhat pointy and then use high-grit to low-grit sandpaper to make the rest.
