I want to get into prop making, mainly due to my encounter with a fully dressed and armed space marine.
I have searched the web on a tutorial for a bolter, for example, but only testimonials of a workshop's work comes up. Unfortunately I do not have the means or the experience for woodwork, so reinforced polysterine/foam with plastic or wood elements is about the limit.
From what I can tell, scifi props are the easiest because of the tendency for rectangular design, with fantasy (swords and such) being harder because of the shape.
Still I would want to start somewhere, but need some sort of clear guidance. So how do I start? :)
