They seem like number two plastic, but I don't know.
I think that isn't possible with Polystyrene but I am not sure. I'll ask my brother, he knows such stuff.
Ok, I asked him, and he says it is indeed possible, so yeah, those are recyclable.
Recycling sprues... such a waste...
Reuse and re-purpose
That could possibly be the most epic thing I'll see this year! If I squint they almost look like Necrons!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle in that order for good environmental custodianship.
What are you are proposing is reusing, which is one step better than recycling.

The log used to be a sprue. That's about as far as I got.
Perhaps @eron12 can post a picture of his gyrocopter made from an old pot of paint.
That comes close to upcycling... if not the definition of it...
That is reusing... which is better than recycling!
That's why it's called UPcycling ...
Yes, that is what they were "played as", I believe- I remember seeing them in a 40K Forum
GW would have a heart attack if this caught on.
There are many ways to reuse or UP-cycle styrene sprue. ( Never throw it away...)
Treasure (in the form of gold bars)
Rubble (chopped into short brick lengths)
Decking (for ships/aeronefs/ironclads)
Half-Timbers (on half timbered structures)
Industrial Metal Barstock
Check out this article:
Not quite sure how/why it is on Bretonnia’s Forum but it shows much use of sprues, and an example of a ladder.
Those Spruecrons are just brilliant/hilarious.
I have seen this before too, great looking Necron army
I haven't found much of a use for the leftovers yet, but my brother has used it for movement trays in the past.
THAT is an impressive way to use old plastic sprues. I will have to revisit saving my old stuff for future Necromunda projects.
Sad we can't get straight to the Bretonnian Forum's articles without logging in anymore
Yeah, same here. Could you... uhmm... repost some of that stuff? I'd love to see it.
On looking at the link again, it was actually posted by our own @Karak Norn Clansman !
For the sake of how awesome the pictures were, here are a few pics:
Breaking news: here is the LINK to where sir lord @Karak Norn Clansman has already posted it within the jungles of Lustria Online.
Tutorial was made by Bloodbeard. Well done sir!
Oops. I forgot Bretonnia is kinda frozen in limbo. I knew KNC had posted that several places. Didn’t think to look here in the backyard..!
