Tutorial – Green Stuff Chains

While working on my Kharn conversion I knew I had to figure out a way to remake the chains wrapped around the model’s arm. There are a few tutorials online on sculpting chains but none of them appeared to be what I needed. This method gives a more refined and squared off chain. Whilst I […]

Video Tutorial: Green Stuff Casting

So I haven’t had much time for anything lately but I decided to put together a better video tutorial for casting Green Stuff using Liquid Blu-Stuff. The last few months the majority of questions I’ve gotten via email have been concerning precisely this, and as I needed to cast something for my own project I […]

Liquid Blu-Stuff

So I’ve got a new product to compliment the original Blu-Stuff molding putty. This Liquid Blu-Stuff (I may yet change the name) is just as easy to use as the putty, is non-toxic, and cures incredibly quickly compared to many other silicone rubbers (at least that I know of). Unlike the Blu-Stuff putty which is […]

Mini-Tutorial: Flat Chains

On the recent Alpharius and Omegon project I sculpted some very tiny chains around the icons on the shoulder pads. The client has asked for a tutorial on how these were done, so here goes. This tutorial is for chains details that might appear in a decorative fashion (go Alpha Legion!) not actual chains. Start with […]

Doom-Bull gives you Wings!

Find the origins of this project post here. Find the post about painting and Finished model here. This has been a long time in the works but this week I devoted some time to trying to get my winged Doombull. This post is just about the progress on the wings. Once they are finished I’m going to […]

Flesh Tearers Icons

Just a small project iconography project here. I made three Flesh Tearers icons in different sizes all using the same approach. I started by taking a small ball of Green Stuff and flattening it into a smooth round disc. Then I took a plastic circular rod and made indentations around the edge. Finally I cut […]

Working with Blu-Stuff

Finally was able to get this introductory video made. It’s as simple and straight-forward as it can be. In future I’ll try and do more videos showing how to more adventurous projects. Please feel free to leave comments and let me know if I left out something really obvious or what you’d like to know […]

Tutorial – Imperial Laurel

Anyone who collects any Space Marines (most of us right?) will most likely have seen the Imperial Laurel bit included in the Command Squad box, but to this day I don’t think I have ever seen one used on a model. The bit itself doesn’t fit. When I started work I most recent project, a […]

Blu-Stuff Iconography Molds

Please excuse the simplicity of this video, this is my very first attempt at making a video ever, so it’s a little rough. I wanted to show how easy it is to cast small details like iconography in Green Stuff using Blu-Stuff as a mold. I started with some icons I sculpted myself for a […]

Artscale Chaos Space Marines

Having made rather a lot of Artscale Loyalist Space Marines I thought it about time to turn to something more Chaotic. I started with just one Artscale Chaos Space Marine Chosen as a prototype. Because of the bits available to them Chaos Space Marines are far and away easier to scale up than loyalists. Add […]

Tutorial – Artscale Jump Packs

I’ve been asked a couple of times how I enlarged the jump packs of my Artscale Assault Marines so I figured I’d throw up a quick explanation. As with the regular backpacks I enlarge (by cutting up two and gluing the bits back together) the size difference is subtle but I feel it is enough […]

Tutorial – Sculpting Layered Armour

Just a quick one here. As I started work on a second Techmarine/MotF for a client I figured I’d show the approach to making Techmarine layer armour. There was a curing time of at least 4 hours between each of these pics so as to make sure I didn’t damage the sculpting on the previous […]

Tutorial – Checks on Shoulder Pads

I’ve seen many attempts at painting checks onto Space Marine shoulder pads (for Lamenters chapter models) that in my mind don’t quite look right. I’ve been asked more than a few times how I did them on my own, so here’s the mini guide I did a while back. The problem I’ve seen people have […]

Tutorial – Painting Yellow

I originally posted this tutorial on a couple of forums a few years back and found myself looking for it recently as I want to paint my new Master of the Forge in yellow armour. I figured I re-post it here amongst other tutorials. The first section of this tutorial is for those people lucky […]
