    Love this mini by the way… Almost finished my second Art Scale marine, got slightly more adventurous with this one than my first one and think it’s turning out well. Takes a long time for me to do each one as I’m doing it after work and letting each layer of GS set overnight but having a lot of fun with it. Thanks for the ideas and guides, they’re all extremely useful.

    Got a question though. Down the line somewhere you started covering the front of the lower part of the legs in GS too. Was this to make the leg bigger or is it done really thin and just to get a better finish? Or is there some other reason behind it?

    Also do you recommend GSing the groin area on all of the models as you started to do? And why?

    Sorry for all the questions, just want to learn to make these as good as I can and your without a doubt the best I’ve seen on the internet.

    • Thanks.

      You’re right to take your time with them and do them one section at a time, reduces the chance of accidentally damaging uncured Green Stuff. It also helps you to focus on a clean finish rather than rush to get it done but with imperfections.

      Regarding the Green Stuff questions, the groin is sometimes rescultped just because the extra mass on the thighs often makes it look out of proportion otherwise.

      With the front of the legs, it is often the case that I want to alter the shape slightly depending on what mark of armour it is. When I do this the layer of Green Stuff is usually quite thin. Sometimes it is also necessary to resculpt the front of the greaves because I’ve wanted to add knee pads to a pair of legs that didn’t have them originally, and there ends up being a bit of repair work.
