With all the actual Custodes models painted now, it was time to start the banners for the two Sergeants.
I am fortunate that a lot of my clients give me plenty of room when it comes to trying out new things and experimenting. This case is no different. I asked if I could try my hand at making greenstuff banners instead of the regular cardstock ones for these guys and my client happily agreed.
I've done something similar for a repair on an Epidemius model before but it wasn't exactly like this. I know I can do it, it's just going to be a matter of refining my technique until I can really get the results I'm looking for. Right now, I can't quite get what I have in my head to materialize. I lack the skills right now so it's gonna take time.
Building the banner wasn't without problems. It's small and somewhat delicate to handle. You can only sculpt one side at a time and you have to let it dry.
Here it is in relation to the a plastic banner. I suppose it's just as easy to go with the plastic one. I think this technique will start to shine with the bigger banners (Chapter sized) when I start making them.
Sorry about the bad pics guys, I'm still figuring out how to take good pics in the new studio.
