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.

He's off to a great start.

 

I have only a few WIP threads, one main one and then ones for special projects, mostly because my WIP posts are as much for my benefit as they are for others as all my notes and color guides are included. So I don't want to have to look through 500 threads to find out what colors I used on something.

 

I don't think the mods really care about how many you make, you're about the only person keeping this board busy.

Thanks. I guess I'll continue as I have so far. There are some other posters that frequent here now and again. Maybe I'll help spark more interest. :D

What's the hot water technique?

 

I found that when it's cold the freshly mixed putty is hard and not sticky so I heated it up a bit on the side of a cup of tea (it left a residue). It seemed that hot temperature causes the Green Stuff to flow more freely, become more sticky, have less surface tension as well as cure faster. What I've done the last couple of sessions is have a cup of hot water to dip my tools in when I need to blend the edges between two masses of putty. Afterwards I just smooth the surface out and I don't have to toil away for ages on disappearing the seam lines.

 

Also, it's conceivable that once you want your putty to set you can dunk it in a cup of hot water and it'll serve the same purpose as one of those lamp oven things.

 

What do you think? I haven't come across any adverse effects yet but I haven't been doing it long.

Heh. He's got a BACKPACK! It's one of those things that so often appears on the character sheet but is never represented on the PC model. :D I really like the jacket and that knee pad. This is another mini I'm sure I could find a use for.

 

Thanks for the tip on the green stuff! I've noticed that green stuff gets harder when it gets COLD, but I hadn't come up with a suitable solution other than "let it thaw out." I suppose I really should have extrapolated from the method for heating up Instant Mold, but for some reason I just hadn't made that connection. I'll have to try that.

 

P.S. -- I actually like seeing progress in separate threads.

It's better than putting the greenstuff on a lightbulb. 'Burned myself once that way.

Sounds dangerous.

Cool! Thanks for the good feedback. I haven't considered that backpacks were unusual. He needs somewhere to store all the extra gear for doing shadowruns or solving dark conspiracies ;)

 

I think that's it:

I'll welcome ideas for another one if anyone has any.

      Having just started a 45 figure batch paint of guardsmen, I decided a side project may be in order. Just a little something I could fiddle with off and on to disrupt the monotony and I knew just the project. 
       
      About a year ago, after I finished my first commissar,  I thought it would be a good idea to paint all my commissars differently. That way I could tell all of my HQs or elites apart, but wouldn't you know it after a couple games I realized it was completely unnecessary. Having already started down that path however I decided to press on.
       
      Within about the first week of pondering different color schemes I had a great idea. Unfortunately I lacked the skills and hobby confidence to attempt it. This past year I've managed to learn quite a bit though, especially about sculpting/working with greenstuff. So I think it's time to attempt a Hulk Hogan commissar.
      First up was locating a good reference photo for both his moustache and boa (see above).
       
      As the moustache was the trickier of the two I decided to start there. In a twist of fate getting a good texture was the easy part, but getting the proper size wasn't. After some back and forth I finally got the size correct. Then it was just a simple matter of using a pin and a toothpick to achieve a hair like texture. 
      This is what you get zooming in, but at a regular viewing distance I think it looks good. 
       
      Next came the boa. Try as I might I couldn't get a good feathery texture going. I could get a good amorphous blob/coral like texture though. Much like the moustache it'll fail upon close inspection but I think with a good paintjob it'll hold up just fine.  

      See I told you that moustache is passable with some distance.

      Now it's just a matter of letting everything dry before priming. I guess it's a good thing we have holiday commitments for the next couple days.
       
      As with any greenstuff project you always end up with some leftovers. After adding a skull to the Hulkster's base I thought I'd share the wealth with a few random models from my desk.

      HI, 
      Thought I would create my own topic so I can share the models I create. Crits and comments welcome.
      This is my latest mini. Created just for fun. I think it should be called " The summoning" though I am open to ideas :)



      Got a few pictures of the 3d print of this guy. Not the best photos but you get the idea.

      So there's a thing called Inktober/Drawlloween that @Pingo reminded me about, where you draw/paint/sketch/art a thing every day during October. There's the "official" list of daily prompts...
       

       
      and this other one that Pingo found that I think is cooler.

       

       
      So who else is up for the challenge?
