  1. I saw someone do this mod some time ago, and I really liked the idea; their's looked great and it seemed simple enough, so in a pique of ambition I took my hobby knife to carve a little "T" intersection out of one of my still-unpainted narrow cavern pieces. Well, that was easy but then I was stuck with a cavern piece that had been pretty butchered and looked silly. Ambition waned and confusion and consternation set in. I wasn't really sure what to do to actually make the carved out bit look at all natural. Cut to today (about two moths later) and I've got the green stuff out for only the second time ever, the last time being a year ago, and I've got hill giant gaps nicely filled with room to spare. I thought, as I did last time I played with GS, "Let's pretend I'm a sculpter! What should I sculpt?" I thought to do a shield or helmet, but then remembered... rocks. "I can surely sculpt a rock!" I remembered this piece, pulled it out, and started slopping the GS on it. It wasn't to hard to continue the stone floor pattern and make it look at least somewhat natural (if not nearly so nice as Stefan Pokorny's sculpting). It's not beautiful, but I think once I have it painted, it will blend in pretty well and look like a natural piece. I assume I have to prime GS before painting it? I think I'll prime and then do brown liner over the GS, then just do the standard pokorny paints cavern color scheme. It's not much at all, but it gives me hope that I can do more mods... I've seen some great stuff to make the caverns come alive, and I'd like to try some more.
  2. Pulled over from my sculpting thread. Would be in Show Off, except there are just those tiny things which still bug me. That slight grainy texture on the face is getting really annoying, and I'm not really sure how to smooth it or fix it. Need to shadow the cape more I think. Sword is not as bright as I would like, but short of going out and buying a bottle of florescent paint for this alone, I think it's fine. Huh. Reaper Alien Flesh MSP is the exact same color as ProCreate. The patterning on the concept art... hahaha I don't think i can do much more than try and suggest it like what I've done a little bit. I already have trouble drawing it in with my micron pen.
  3. Alright I want to see what everyone's working on base-wise, even if it's some simple, basic (ha! see what I did there?) stuff. Let's share the bases we are working on. First, I'll show you a couple of the ones I did recently. This was nothing special but one of my first attempts at sculpting any kind of base. Attempted to be some sort of stone/cobblestone street. Just some flattened out milliput then with one of my little clay tools carved in the stones. After it dried, filled it with some white glue and some GF9 grass. Next, I was trying to make some appropriate bases for the cultists I'm currently working on. After finishing all four of these, I decided they weren't "evil" enough and am trying other options. Also, it took me about 3 different iterations of various peoples marble tutorials to get anywhere with painting marble. Not sure if links are okay, but you can search for centerpiece miniatures painting marble bases. I translated the colors they used from citadel to the MSP and am fairly pleased. These were certainly a lot more realistic and a lot more consistent than the multiple attempts at marble I had made prior. Of course, now I have no one to put them on, but I'm sure something will come up. I also struggled to find the appropriate coating for them. Initially a tried a gloss coat thinking it would make it look like a nice shiny marble floor but the coating still dried 'too thin' as in it didn't seem to have the depth I wanted, and also just crazy shiny instead of looking polished. So then I sprayed them with testors and that's why they look all flat now. Alright, now your turn! Show me what you're working on!
  4. My Iron Kingdoms RPG group sometimes can’t hold back. When we saw that Borka: Vengeance of the Rimshaws was riding a polar bear… well, we had to figure out how that might work for us. Luckily, we have a very good GM who is willing to make up some rules in the name of Awesome. And then it fell to me to create some awesome minis featuring our heroes riding bears. I grabbed a couple bears from Scibor (they’re very large) and put a couple of Reaper Bones minis on them- then did a lot of sculpting. Here are the results: First off- the Gobber Man-at-Arms/Duelist/Horseman: And our Trollkin Alchemist/Earth Sorcerer/Long Rider
  5. Here's a thread to show my stuff without a limiting thread title. I'll just post my work here. Here is my experiment with PC putty, I'm remaking the Gnome warpunk necromancer in 1:56. I think the boot came out pretty sweet but his thigh is, unsurprisingly, a bit thin. We'll see how it goes. Also cut out a styrene profile of an x-95 in 1:100. I created an impression in Super Sculpey, baked that and presently putty is curing in it.
  6. Well I decided it was high time to get some bases sculpted. It was a nice simple start for some modelling with either green stuff or milliput. First off I made 10 bases, I wanted them to look like tram tracks to make them suitable for Victorian or Steampunk models. I made 4 with Milliput and 6 using green stuff. This is a picture post modelling with my son trying to reclaim his duplo. I did the mistake of using foam board and had a bit of pain getting the paper off. Finally here is a picture of the painted models. Comments welcome. I used these moulds to cast my first resin models. So it's been a nice learning curve.
  7. Here's our party of Iron Kingdoms adventurers that I've converted. FIrst off- this is our Ogrun Artillerist/Alchemist. The main body of him was made from a Reaper Bones Orc, and the cannon is made from a GW missile. This is Lug- our Mighty Gobber Man-at-arms/Duelist. It is pretty nice having a little gobber for our tank. He was made from a Bones female dwarf- sword hand is from Mordheim, and the head and breastplate are just green stuff. This last one is our Priest of Cyrris/Arcanist. He also dabbles in alchemy. Also a bones mini with less sculpting than the other two- I altered his ears and hair to make him look more human, then gave him a cool tuning kit instead of the dagger he had in his hand originally.
  8. This is a sad story, kind of... About 4 years ago I was just getting into Warhammer 40k and I was the Tau army... I decided to make a piece of terrain I could (justifiably) put in almost every scenario as a fall back point. The story behind it was that the Tau would drop it from orbit and would automatically provide cover and intel., etc. Its was only allow in large scale skirmishes - counting as points in my army. Worked great, I could fall back behind it and shoot through the one way windows and it had a drone that could detach from it and follow around if things got too harry. Alas, I never finished it, what you see here is the last of it... I had to sell it... But I hope it inspires somebody! Materials: A vitamin bottle, a cap to a pill bottle, top half of an antenna, a paper clip, sand, rocks, left over spurs, left over tau mech command antenna's, and Green Stuff. I acutally carved out a Spur pole to fit and entire rack of guns. Above is a place for pistols. Here is the War Map and the concept I had in mind. To the right is a helmet. I actually took a Tau head and carved it out so it looked liked a Commander took his helmet off and placed it there. Took forever to carver it out! I hope you have enjoyed my blast from the past! I THOROUGHLY enjoyed making this. Wish I had some pictures of my Cardboard City stuff I made.
  9. I am new to using green stuff, or rather, new to using anything other than water to smooth it out. I have used some Chapstick, but the green stuff stays greasy, and I suspect it needs to be degreased before I do anything more with it. But what to use? Acetone will melt plastic so that is out. Can I use white spirit paint solvent? I have heard that rubbing alcohol should be safe also for plastics, but I have no idea what the Norwegian equivalent to rubbing alcohol is, does any one have a European term for it? It would be much appreciated if Anyone has some advice to give. Thank you in advance.
  10. Howdy y'all, So long story short, Bones Kickstarted (pun intended) my painting time again, after a multi-year hiatus. However, I was wondering if anyone had experience scuplting Green Stuff onto Bones? I have a a Tiefling barbarian with Diabolic Transformation as a feat, and I wanted to use a new mini for the "hulking monster" form, so I chose this: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/succubus/sku-down/77067 Since we have some younger generations playing with us, the 'full nude' isn't an option really (I personally couldn't care less). I would be wanting to craft something akin to the "slave leia" type outfit (because reasons) and plan to hack off the whip and use a brass rod as a base and make it into a "sinister" spear if possible...plan B was to get a weapon sprue during 12 days of reaper to graft into/through the hilt of the whip...has anybody ever done anything like this? I have some very basic green-stuff know how...though ideas and suggestions are the reason this topic is here...any/all advice would be appreciated. Cheers y'all, -NoZ
  11. Hello everyone! Just got some of the green stuff and thought I'd share what I'm doing with it. At first I was just going to use it for improving the bases of my minis, but I quickly realized I'll be using it to mod some of them and eventually do full on figures of my own. First up, I made some rocks for this wizard's base: Next, after finding that working with the stuff is so fun, I decided to make a lil' skull: And for fun, here are a couple of digital sculpts I did when I first got ZBrush earlier in this year. An orc head, and a Chinese style dragon that I got frustrated with and didn't finish: Anyway, I'll just keep updating this thread as I sculpt more stuff in the future. Comments and critiques are welcome.
  12. Yay! My first sculpt finished! It's not so great to look at, but I made it, and that's something I couldn't think of myself doing not so long ago =). There's a lot that I would change or do again in it, but I need it for my game next week (and another one too, gulp), so no time to be too picky! I have to say this community is awesome, as I got so much help and inspiration as a total beginner in my WIP thread. You rock! So it's sculpted with Green Stuff and the base is just cork from a wine bottle. It's possible I'll revisit this paint job later, but I'm in a hurry now because of the game it's needed in, so the painting took only about two hours. It's easier to post a pic of a mini I've just painted, but now that I sculpted this too, I don't know what side to show of it... So I'll post a ton of pics! =) Thanks for looking!
  13. Okay, Leanne ... TURN AROUND AND LEAVE THIS TOPIC. J/K. She's not on the forums. I think. Anyway, the Jabberwocky in question is not the Bones Jabberwock from the Kickstarter. Those disappointed may want to stick around anyway. Feel free to comment or point and snicker. Here it is: I got this on the holiday clearance sale at FRP Games last December. The manufacturer: As you can see I already pulled it out and played with it a bit to see how it assembles and what shape it's in. Overall it's a stout figure with the caricature wings and a fairly standard jabberwocky face. The legs were askew from the blister so after some careful adjusting I managed to get it close to where it will stand on it's own. Sadly it was rather boring looking as it was kind of head down. Sorry, I was working on this in between getting home from work and dinner out with the family so I forgot the unpackaging and initial setup shots. So, after getting him set, I picked out a piece of slate for him that was big enough for his base and the figure. Then I figured out where I would attach him to the base. Marked the stone with pencil. Then pinned his foot. Measuring where the pin was, I drilled a hole through the slate with a masonry bit. I wanted to dress up his base and angle him up a bit on the rock so he's looking more level without manhandling his head up and then trying to angle it forward. The base included is a large, slotted, lipped round. I covered the slot with a little tape, put down the smaller piece of slate with some superglue, filled the lip with black ballast and brought it to the edge of the first piece of slate. Then after lining up the larger piece of slate with the hole, I added superglue to the smaller slate edge and the lip at the other end. I filled in the open space formed by the angled pieces with more black ballast. As you can see, the smallest masonry bit is too large for the pin so I added some green stuff and smoothed it out. In this instance, I don't plan to paint the base at all. I like the look of it and it's not a gaming piece. It will get sprayed at the end with sealer and Dullcote. Once I had the base assembled and things set where they should be, I didn't like how his feet were placed on the rock and wanted to adjust it a little. So I put some green stuff on while holding it to the rock and molded it into more of a heel. I intentionally left it a bit larger then I think the end result will be so I can sand it back. Here he is resting in on the base from both sides: Later tonight I will attach his wings. His heels needed time to cure a bit so I don't mess them up while working on his wings. Tomorrow I sand the green stuff out and prime him. For a paint scheme I was thinking of pink-purple on the belly around to purple-green on top and the back ridges blackened purple with some pink-purple around the mouth from under his chin and the top armored portion of his face being the purple-green. Or a reverse of that. We'll see. I have until Friday evening to finish it. Earlier if I plan to wrap it. LOL .
  14. In this thread I'll post about an experimental, speculative project about 28mm Science Fiction soldiers. These troopers are a sort of air cav/paratroopers but in space. The first part of the project was to figure out a design. I was mostly concerned with it having a coherent look that was practical and aesthetically pleasing. As part of the design process I sculpted and painted this 1:35 scale prototype / design sketch. There are more details about the project on my Blog. Next I might do some sketching, start a couple of 28mm armatures, do another 1:35 sculpt or all of the above. Comments, suggestions, questions and critiques (especially) will be met with deadly gratitude.

    WARPUNK

    Warpunk is a concept I've had for a while. It's sort of like steam-punk but instead of Victorian dandies it's all about post industrial revolution military. So it's WWII, Korean, cold war + fantasy setting. Sketch and sculpt start. The scale is 1:52. Make note of the Cyberpunk decker fitted into a base with his new tab.
  16. I have a couple of pieces I'm working on right now which, due to their fiddly bits, will require green stuff in their joints. However, also due to their fiddly bits, I have to paint under the bits I'm attaching before I attach them, otherwise I'd never be able to paint under them all the way (or make it look good anyway). Does anyone have advice on how to approach this? I'm worried about ruining my paint job with green stuff or wrestling the bits in their joints.
  17. If you read the blog you already seen this guy. I thought I'd start a thread to post about him here too. I'm not sure if I'm making too many threads or is the forum a little on the idle side? Mods? Should I make one megathread or is this better? Working with a reference image I've taken myself.
  18. I've seen a few threads about conversions of the Bones on here and the thought crossed my mind. "How well does the green stuff and various other modeling compounds work with the Bones material?" The Bones material has some nice qualities but I hope that doesn't present issues when we sculpt over the figure. I have the Bones Great Worm which I found at a local shop for a nice price. And I glued it to a base (2" tile from an architect's samples box I have) and the super glue worked fine. But are there other glues or epoxies we should avoid?
  19. I froze some green stuff, now I need to use it, and I've had it out of the freezer long enough from it to not feel cold, and it's still hard as a rock. How long do I have to wait for green stuff to thaw out? Or did I freeze it wrong and now it's useless?
  20. I sculpted this guy quickly as an attempt to impress a particular company. They were not impressed but I think he came out pretty cool. :( The scale is 1:52.
  21. The scale is 1:52. 1.80 meters convert to ~32mm. Might be called "28mm".
  22. I've been working on a set of 1:72 modern Afghanistan Bundeswehr infantry (in shooting poses). They're for a young German company and I'm making these as a sort of pilot project. I think it will be absolutely amazing to have my work cast and for people to paint and play with them. So far I have completed one guy. I'll need to cut him up for casting but not just yet (I'm scared). I just started on the next two guys. I will be making 5 total for this batch with more hopefully afterwards. You can see more pictures, process shots and rantings on my blog if you're so inclined: http://ludumartifex.blogspot.com Posing with my epiphytic moss. New armature #1 New armature #2 G36 V.2
  23. Here are MIT's safety procedures for dealing with epoxies: http://www.psfc.mit.edu/esh/epoxy.html Note that epoxy is a skin irritant, especially the hardener part. I'm curious to hear how people deal with this. Does anybody sculpt with protective gloves on?
  24. Here are a couple of WIP shots of a miniature I'm working on now. Can anyone guess who or what it is? Update: Here are some updated photos of the progress with this piece. Enjoy...
  25. Hello everyone, I saw that RM had this forum for sharing our original pieces and I really wanted to post a few. Here are the links to the images of the completed pieces, (more to come soon): Fal'lyn Krail, Jedi Knight - Original Concept Image/Drawing Fal'lyn Krail is my second miniature to be completed from Green Stuff and my fourth ever miniature. I was very pleased with how she came out, though I realize after she was complete to this point that I needed a set of color shapers to provide that smooth finish. Fortunately they are being shipped and I should have them in hand by the end of this month. (I'm adding the image here also as some have stated they had a problem with accessing the links.) I would love to get some feedback on these pieces as I add them.
