Green Stuff World Textures Rollers

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen the textured rollers made by the company Green Stuff World?   Came across them when I was buying some items to make bases.   Bought a few of them, but now I have seen how simple and quick it is to make bases am thinking I will buy the others when I am a little more financial.   Tonight pumped out 16 bases using the planks for rebasing some of the Rum & Bones stuff I am about to paint.  

 

Anyhoo thought I'd share the before and after pics.   Did a quick paint up of them to see how they would turn out. Just bases coat, washes and bit of drybrushing.   First one is meant to be frozen, but I thought it would work really well as lava.

I own a plain roller, An Aztec Motif Roller ( look at my Lost World / Tanith's Altar), An Egyptian one and an Greek one.

Marvelous stuff.

What size are the bases? I ask as the wood grain looks larger than I expected. I have been disappinted with the wood grain on my Happy Seppuku bases as well. 

 

 Nice painting on the lava base. It works really well for that.

The world of Green Stuff is a favorite among quite a few of us forumites.

They have way too much nice stuff... 

 

I also like that they've begun shipping the rolling pins in clear plastic tubes.

(They're also selling the tubes if anyone has old pins they want to protect.)

 

The only other product that is close to these in detail quality is the Basius Stamps, and most of those are limited to 50x50mm areas. These are rolls, so can make a long pattern.

 

Their Rolling Pins, the Roll Maker, and their 'Blue Stuff' reusable mould is my fave items from them.

I've looked at them and thought about buying, but right now my Happy Seppuku stamps are working fine for me.

 

If only I could remember which "safe place" I put the ones I didn't want to carry to paint days. <_<

They base size above is 25mm.  Fits perfectly into the usual black slotted bases that come with most minis.   Best thing is the lid of the tube is basically a cookie cutter.   Makes just the right size circle.  Last night in prep for rebasing painted Rum & Bones Second Tide minis, made 16 plank bases.  Was a little bored.  So thought I'd see how quick I could make churn them out.  Took all of about 20 mins.  Rolled out the fimo, cut the bases using the lid cookie cutter idea, 5 (maybe 7) mins at 175 degrees Celsius.  Bases done.  One of my kitchen appliances has a cutter that would probably work for the bigger bases.  Otherwise already told my Mum who is a chef I am going to raid her cooking tools for cutters of the right size.  LOL as an aside she wanted to offload usual cookie cutters on me.  So bases in the shape of stars and hearts?  YAY!

 

The plank one above is going to be used for a mini I am painting now.  Well not now.  But atm.  So will post a pic to give an idea of scale I guess.  

 

Was going to buy Basius stuff eventually.  But I think if I can get these rollers I might stick with them for a while.

I keep checking out their website and making plans. I haven't actually gotten anything, though (well, not yet, anyhow).

 

Nice work on the ice into lava base; it works very well for that!

      After several iterations of painting and base, I'm finally happy with my Griffon and I'm calling it finished! 
       
       
       
       
       

       
      The mini ended up looking a bit cartoony 
       
      I did go for something else initially, but it seemed too plain for a griffon, so I was happy to exchange realism for 'striking'. More on PSA.
       
      And I just finished redoing the base -- thanks for support on the WIP board.

      I planned to go for the coloring suggestion on the box, except with brighter feathers. After base coat and a wash it seemed to turn rather plain. I keep the underside this way, while for the top side of the wings I started adding some variation to the feathers, gradually daring to add more detail and contrast. Took a while to get there, but in the end I was happy and called it finished. I even took a fun picture with it:
       

       
       
       
      But now that I'm a few minis wiser, I demoted him from finished to lacking base. And this is where I am stuck now. 
       
      I had this plan of making a sandstone cliff looking base. I positioned him and started building up terrain, working carefully not to damage the finished mini. I colored some stones of various sizes in a few colors so I don't need to paint as much around the mini and I started to glue my rocks carefully around the base. 
       

       
      I kept working on it for hours thinking I am getting somewhere, but once I took a break and looked at it again from all sides... I stand by my rocks, I think in a few steps they'll look great, but the scene makes no sense. These are not cliffs, more like a stone quarry, what would a griffon be doing there? - that's too specific and unlikely.
       
      Time to "delete" this somehow and start over... Wish me luck!

      I was having some fun playing with green stuff and decided to revamp the base of this Goroloth. I scupted corals, tube sponge, starfish, and a deadly blue-ringed octopus! There's some pictures of the sculpts before trimming and painting also. :D

      So I used to paint a ton, but that was maybe 10 years ago. I just started getting back into the hobby and I've run into an issue. 
      Reaper used to make metal bases that were recessed. I know they sold them in square, maybe 1" or so. I'm pretty confident that they also sold them in round, but I'm not 100% on that.

      Now I've been working on a mini project and the base that comes with the figure is abysmal. I was really hoping I could just clip the fig off the existing base and with the help of a little green stuff put it on a new metal base. I really prefer the feel and weight that a metal base would add to the figure.
       
      It appears now that Reaper isn't selling those bases anymore. Does anyone know where I could either find some old inventory and pick up a handful of them, or does anyone know of another source that makes a similar product?

      So, I'm about to start working on making some 3D bases of my own for my dragons (and hubby's too)...  Anyone have any pointers or tips on particular putted to use when coating stuff like cork to add more detail, or would there be much of a difference between say Milliput, greenstuff, or other things?   I ask as terrain generally doesn't require as much detail as a mini would, but it never hurts to get a few more opinions. 
       
      I do have greenstuff atm (and Aves Apoxie if this supplier I'm trying to buy some from sends me an invoice ), and might be ordering some other stuff, hence why I'm curious. 
       
      Love greenstuff for stamped or rolled bases, and gap filling (I suspect when I try sculpting I'll like it too, I'm enjoying how it behaves now that I've had a bit of time using it for gap filling and bases), but naturally I'm open to other options too.
