  1. Does anyone know how to make the ballistic gel and "skull"/"bone" targets used in the deadliest warrior?

    nope, i do know they are expensive
     

  3. I thought so, I'll see if I can rig something up out of homemade balistic gel and some bamboo. Bamboo is suposed to be about as hard as bone so we'll see how it works.

    Maybe the local butcher shop can get you some whole pig leg bones.

    Ballistic gel is not cheaper than real meat. One kilogram costs about 14 Euros, you can make 5 kg gel from it. But the advantage is that it is semi transparent, so you can see what goes on inside of it.

    Yes, but it will start to smell after three days (earlier in the summer). Then heating it up ain't a good idea. Also it gets more dense after a re-cast, loosing the certified flesh-like behaviour.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>No it deffinatly isn't, but the ability to reuse it (even if it is only a couple times) helps ballence that cost, and unlike you I do not have a huge fan base that I need to make videos for (thankfully, I'd go crazy lol) I just wanted something to test assorted "toys" against, hopefully without destroy otherwise "pretty" food. (My lil woman and daughter are kinda picky)</span>
