Sadly still re-organising and tidying, and also having to remake a whole bunch of production moulds for everything else at the same time, so haven't had a chance to sit down and do the tentacles. Bodies are coming along, though, so she's still on track.

A Troll eh?

Maybe (if you weren't keen on sculpting a troll) you could try getting a Reaper Bones troll from Miniature Heroes (a UK supplier of Reaper). It would likely be cheaper than the amount of Green Stuff you'd use.

I'd suggest building the core with Milliput over your wire frame. It is much cheaper than Green Stuff and will do the job nicely (it's what I use in this instance... my Mushroom Troll I made is a good example).

I always forget to take the middle strip out and end up with that already cured bit in my mix, a pain if I don't get it out before sculpting. My son wants me to sculpt a troll for him to go with those extremely cheap em4 orcs he spent some cash on. Good deal for a 7 year old with birthday money to spend.

I get the ribbon type Green Stuff and just just cut across the end to get a thin strip (I don't meticulously measure ratios between blue/yellow). I pinch the joint between yellow and blue out and discard it before mixing the putty. That means that I get a bit of variation in the mix but I just work with whatever turns up :)

The lighting in the photos probably doesn't help... :o

The ribbon I have at the moment has a thinner blue strip than yellow so I get a fairly light coloured mix.

Ah, mixing the green stuff is where I'm going wrong, I thought these blobs of yellow and blue where meant to harden.

I thought you may have mixed as the photos of the GS look fairly light, must just be the lighting.
Musculature and fists look great.

Cheers :) . I mix green stuff... other wise it wouldn't set :D

Normally, I use Greenstuff on its own but for larger sculpts I may build the core from standard Milliput. If I want a particularly soft putty that will be harder when set, I'll mix Milliput with Green Stuff or use a Greenstuff/Brownstuff mix.

However, my usual putty is straight Greenstuff.
