I suppose it was only a matter of time before I needed to start buying greenstuff in "bulk." I've always bought the little GW package because it's always been enough.
But recently, I've been grinding through them quicker and quicker. And I don't waste the stuff either. Very often, people find themselves having mixed way more than they needed and end up throwing away as much as they used if not more. I'm past that mistake these days, but I'm just sculpting so much, that I'm using it up in no time at all.
Enter the BIG TUBE of greenstuff. I swung by my FLGS (Game Vault) the other day to buy some paints and more greenstuff when the owner told me about the "bulk" tube of greenstuff.
I was hesitant at first because I'm comfortable with GW's stuff and using it. I don't want to switch brands and have to learn the subtle nuances of a new product and have to adjust my sculpting techniques now. With a little reassurance though, I bought the stuff (it was cheaper for the amount I got) and I'll be trying it in the coming weeks.
As far as projects got, I've been working on lots of little things between the big projects I have going on. These past few weeks, I've tried to limit my spray painting due to the crazy hot temperatures we've been getting here on the East Coast. Here are a couple of sculpting things I've managed to do recently.
I was sent a link to this artist (Mr. Scream) and asked if I could sculpt a skull head similar to the one on the model. This has to be one of the coolest head conversions I ve seen to date. I'm building another one for myself. I don't know where I'll use it, but I'm going to have one.
I've sculpted a set of door icons for another person's Flesh Tearers army.
And I've also sculpted a Blood Ravens shoulderpad for another person.
While no one project used lots of greenstuff, these with the Dark Eldar project I've been working has just been grinding through the stuff. Maybe the new stuff will last me a bit longer now.
