Hey guys.

I plan to tinker with some minis. For that I need to cut them in half at the waist, but I have some trouble with that.

I don't have a saw fine enough to saw them in half with, how do you guys do it, have you got some small saws?

Every help is appreciated. :)

You could try a jewellers saw, they are supposedly superthin in size but strong. I'm not sure of the cost to buy?

Razor saws from army painter. They are inexpensive and you will wonder how you ever lived without one before.

Seconded! I have used Xacto razor saw blades for many years - inexpensive and excellent.

Jewellers saws are sometimes called Piercing saws.

Thank you very much.

From a quick look I might actually prefer the xacto saw, because the angle of the blade looks more convenient but we'll see what I can get a hold of.
