Ok so in the past I haven't really shown build logs, but I'm trying to use the blog as a project notebook more. So here goes.
So I started with the idea that I was going to make a 50/50 mix of Greenstuff and Milliput.
Yellow and Blue make Green, Yellow and Brown (I think it's supposed to be Grey) make Yellow.
I did the Chaos warriors first.mostly just the torso joins and hiding the gaps in the axe handle repair. I also used it to fill in gaps in the bases as i always have excess putty left when I do these things.
Next I got to work on the joins on the Cthulhu. I probably should have started with him. As I got to the wings and arms the lack of stickiness of the putty began to be a problem. I think I had been working for about an hour and a half and it was curing too much. I think part of the problem was that I had used a roller to squash my putty ball into a very thin pancake. This greatly increased the surface area and I think effectively reduced the work time. So only flatten what you absolutely need to.
Hmm, I'm not exactly sure what I was trying to show you here. This is where I gave up and threw out the remaining bit of putty as it had become very plastic.
After a discussion with some facebook friends I started using some Tamiya putty with a couple of "hitech" tools. They both had their uses but I was finding them inadequate in some situations.
I then remembered that i had a whole set of cheap sculpting tools that I never use. Apart from two or three favorites that is.
I ended up using these two plus my old palette knife. I find Tamiya pretty hard to work with, but you can sand it. I have some Squadron putty lying around somewhere. I'll give that a try some other time.
In hindsight I would say it would be better to glue on and putty each part individually working up from tail to head. I think it would have been a little easier to do.
Thanks for sitting through my ugly cell phone pictures. I didn't want to spend a lot of time on Photography for this.
