  • Wow simply amazing. I have just bought myself a stripe of green stuff and am hoping what I do will turn out closely as good as your stuff. This will be my first time using green stuff so I’m just hoping it doesn’t turn out bad… My plan is to make Death Watch characters for the Role Play game… I’ve purchased a book and am hoping to get into that too. But I also like the miniature models and wanted to make some, but after looking online on how to use the green stuff… I feel out classed O.o  I was wondering if you have any tips you could send my way?

    • It’s very easy to become discouraged when your first attempts don’t turn out like masterpieces. My suggestion to you would be to take small steps and treat each of these steps as an experiment or test.

      Try small things to start out and use them to get used to the feel of the putty. Try different tools, lubricants and different ratios of yellow/blue mix. Don’t worry if it doesn’t turn out how you hoped, it’s just part of the learning process. Believe me, about a third of the sculpting I do with Green Stuff either gets binned or is trimmed down and sculpted over again. I tried to include lots of tips in my guide to making an Artscale Space Marine: http://masteroftheforge.com/2011/08/21/how-to-make-an-artscale-space-marine/

      If you’re planning on sculpting whole figures you’d do well to check out the sculpting guides at http://miniaturementor.com/

      Good luck with it. Remember sculpting is much like painting, it takes a lot of practice and patience for most of us.

    Any word on the charity auction?

    • Volomir’s schedule is very busy at the moment, so I’m not going to rush him over it.

      I may very well do something else for charity before it is ready to go up for auction.

    Hey, where’d you get that shield from?

    • humbrade

      I ask because I’m looking to make an Art Scale Deathwatch, Black Templar Champion and would love to put a shield on it but have trouble finding one big enough…

    • The shield is a Forgeworld Black Templar shield that’s had all the detail sanded off. If you try to do the same sand it under a running tap to avoid the toxic resin dust.

        Thanks mate, going to look for it now.
