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 figured I’d...

Green Stuff Cast Shoulder Pad

So I’m nearly done painting the Chaos Sorcerer. In the meantime I’ve got a small post on an test I did casting a Green Stuff shoulder pad. In a recent post about silicone rubber and casting Green Stuff someone left a comment saying they were having a few problems casting a shoulder pad using my post as a guide. As they were...

Black Crusade 2012: Sorcerer Part 2

As is customary for me, I’ve taken far too long over the sculpting process of this mini, and have only a few days left to finish painting it. Luckily I know how I intend to paint the model so there’s no decision work (or indecision work ) to get in the way. So when I started this project I had this vague idea of making the...

Rubber Molds & Green Stuff

Technically the title of this post isn’t entirely accurate but I’ll get to that in a bit. Any one who’s read my previous posts will have come across my use of Blu-Stuff putty to make simple push molds and simple Green Stuff casts. Whilst I’ve found this immensely useful there are limitations. Because the Blu-Stuff...

Artscale Space Marine Combat Squad

Well it’s been far far too long since my last post. Crazy times of late have meant my priorities have had to lie elsewhere. But now I’m back on track and focused on new things… Starting with this Space Marine Combat Squad. I thought about posting an update on this squad last week but procrastinated over it and decided...

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 great for casting...

Primarchs Alpharius and Omegon

With the exception of the bases the Primarch twins Alpahrius and Omegon are now finished. This has probably been my most challenging project to date. The whole thing is about 90% self sculpted with a few bits used as armature to sculpt over. Alpharius especially is one of my favourite ever and I’m tempted to model a Space Marine...

Alpharius and Omegon – Part 3

  Apologies for  the lack of posts so far this year. I had the pleasure of being hacked last week (this site and a number of others) which is one of the reasons this post is so late. Although the actual damage incurred was quite minor and cleaned up within about 3 hours I decided to tidy up and remove any other vulnerablilites....

Alpharius and Omegon – Part 2

Steady progress on Alpharius and his twin brother Omegon. The tricky thing with this conversion is to make them obvious Primarchs, but also not have them too decorative, as their own modus operandi is to make sure they and all the Legionnaires are largely indistinguishable from one another. At the end of the day I’d rather make...

Alpharius and Omegon – Part 1

This is the starting point of my first Primarch project. I’ve been putting off doing any Primarch for a long time because I want the finished model to really capture that extra special something that makes them so special. This particular project features the twin Primarchs Alpharius and Omegon. To do this I’m making a plain...

Doom-Bull gives you Wings! (part 1)

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 have some casts made, so there will be some up on the Store. They each measure 50mm across and 100mm tall and will be a good match...

MotF Online Store

Well it’s only taken a couple of years but I finally have automated payments set up for the Master of the Forge Webstore. To kick it off I have my first batch of Mechanical Talons. The stock is low at the moment but I’ll be restocking them very soon. I’ve also added Blu-Stuff to this store for anyone interested in...

Winged Doombull

UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF POST So after much deliberation I’ve settled on building a Beastmen as my army for Warhammer 8th edition. I like the fact they are one of the least popular forces being collected but I also think I can make them into a great looking army (most important part for me). My starting point is the theme of the army,...

Vulkan He’stan Rebuild

This particular conversion has been a long time coming but I’ve been a bit distracted lately. This is a rebuild of the stock Vulkan He’stan into something a bit better than the existing skipping rope pose. I knew that this being a regular scale conversion I wanted to use the existing model as a base to work from, because...

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 more...

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 Minotaurs Space Marine chapter that were sculpted...
