Re: Filthy's Green Stuff Projects and Repaints

Ugg !!! Where to start! I hate your post Filthy because it makes me want to toss my homework aside, pull out my toys and start casting again! I have not been able to play around with casting in a few months and seeing your work really make me try out all the cool stuff you discovered!!


First your wolves look great, I think I want to try and make all my wolves look like a set, but Z-mans idea of each lord with his own scheme sounds neat, I'll harrass him later to ask for a picture of his dog-lords.


Milliput? thougth about giving it a shot? For bigger figures you might try your instant-mold milliput instead of greenstuff. I made a few figure heads for my ships with it and it holds detail pretty neat, not tried making a single figure with it yet but it might work.

Your elementals..... I want... that project looks so much cooler then writting essays, I only have 6 more essays to go before this semester is over. I have no access to craft stores here so I might have to search online.

Your idea of moss on the elementals.. nice touch, I am torn with modifying my original figures some times but that looks like an easy touch up that will enhance the figure!

Overall, I hate your thread, its filled with tons of really cool stuff, great ideas and really interesting projects. People like me who are supposed to be focused on studying , finishing essays, and getting ready for a Hazmat exam are not thrilled.

You are a bad bad man sir....

LOL Toss those books aside! Besides, the molding compound that I am using can technically be listed as Hazmat material, so it is related to your studies.

Speaking of elementals, I am working on adding the guts of flickering LED candles to the inside of molded Fire Elementals:

The trick is getting the electronics to fit both in the base and partly in the body of the FE.

Is making Fire Elementals like that cost efficient?

Compared to buying them outright, sans electronics? From a direct cost perspective: probably not. If you skip the electronics, and just create them from my above molding materials...Then yes, they will be cost effective.

Here is a breakdown of the costs:
-EasyCast transparent casting resin: $12-17
-Transparent dye: $11
-InstantMold or other molding material (note that I already owned InstantMold): $14

From the above materials, I was able to create 11 elementals; since Fire Elementals are the smallest, I wager that 15 could be created. I also have a ton of the dye left, so it will go a long way (note that it only takes a couple of drops for each elemental).

A quick eBay search shows that FE's go for roughly $6, excluding shipping. So, if you can make at least 7-8 Fire Elementals, you will break even. Any quantity above that is profit. Plus, you can reuse the InstantMold and dye on other projects.

*This does not factor in the time involved. I am not sure how you value your time; in my case, it is a hobby so I did not apply a direct value beyond 'recreational purpose.'

Re: Filthy's Green Stuff Projects and Repaints

I finally finished three squads of Omnicron Repulsors. For this project, I tried out a different version of GreenStuff, which turned out to be essentially the same as the stuff that I normally use; at $15 for the tube, I was able to squeeze out three squads of Repulsors (I had a couple of rejects, unfortunately).

The figures themselves were fairly straightforward, although I had to separate some of the components (gun-arm, leg, and shoulder pad) via a knife, in order to reduce the amount of GreenStuff that would be used and make it easier to trim up the figures. Here is the InstantMold, with a couple of pieces that have gone under the scalpel:


I used the original pieces as trimming reference points, then glued everything together via regular super glue (which works great with this version of GreenStuff, I might add):



A finished squad; I gave them a slightly battle-worn visual, with a rather heavy, dark wash and a bit of dry-brushed 'rust' and gun metal (aka poor man's battle damage) on the armor: nothing too fancy, mind you...Just something to break up the 'bright and cheery' appearance of the figs:


I based them with Auggies' wooden HS bases. For $1, one receives 10 round, wooden bases, complete with detailed sticker. The bases are cheap, look great, and are easy to drill through for foot pegs. I found that holding the drill bit in-hand and manually drilling the holes worked better than using an electric drill on low setting. The bases are very light, but superbly durable. I highly recommend them.

The group shot: 9 Repulsors for the price of $15:

Good work. I'll have to check out those bases.

Re: Filthy's Green Stuff Projects and Repaints

I finally found a good use for Abomination...As an impromptu Chaos Spawn sculpt for Warhammer 40k:


It was a simple mod; I cut him in half, stuck a rolled tube of molded greenstuff to his lower torso, and then slapped a quick coat of paint on him after he cured. He is receiving a 'blessing' of sorts from a Dark Chaplain, who is also handing out TP.

Re: Filthy's Green Stuff Projects and Repaints

Sweet. Great job Filthy.

Looks like he could be a Marro figure too.

Re: Filthy's Green Stuff Projects and Repaints

Orgsbane did an awesome repaint of Abomination as a Marro.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Filthy's Green Stuff Projects and Repaints

Indeed I did, but it certainly wasn't my idea. The credit for that goes to obfuscatedhippo!

Spoiler Alert!


That is a sweet mod you did! I've never seen a Chaos Spawn, but that looks very... Spawny.
