Heresy / Heresy Grubs
« Last post by Orctrader on May 14, 2016, 09:08:43 PM »
Long time no post...   :whistle:

Took almost a year off painting, restarting last December.

Not something I would usually go for but painted these as part of the Lead Adventure forum LPL competition.  Andy's Giant Grub, Maggot Men and Slugs, with some GS added to make them look more like, er, grubs...

Id say if you are going to go with air drying clay then go for the tinfoil over the armature to bulk it out or it might end up heavy as F**k. which could lead to thinner areas not being able to support large areas or it being lop sided and falling over :)super sculpy is actually super easy to use if you have a oven that produces a even heat :) just bake it in thin layers.

Air drying clay would work too... just make sure that the core is properly dry before you put stuff around it or it may do weird things (crack, split, bubbles etc).

If you add PVA glue to the paint, it will stop the paint being absorbed into the card, will adhere nicely and will end up with a nice satin finish :)

I have a few kg's of air drying clay so that might be a good base. He'll love making some stuff out of that too. First we have to paint the cardboard he wants to game on (We've been working our way through Heroquest and he's keen on making his own board.)

No worries :)

You could probably get away with sculpey or some such for the core (it only needs to bulk out the wire to save on Green Stuff. Failing that, you could scrunch cooking foil around the wire and then green stuff on top... or that plaster infused bandage (mod rock?) if you are going quite big (then you could get your lad involved in the process by showing him how to wrap the wire, ready for the sculpting).

If he's keen to get involved then let him. Maybe, while you are working on a troll, he could be building an Earth Elemental out of mod-rock (with a small amount of help when it comes to building the armature and sculpting the hands and face).

Another option it to wrap the wire core with more wire to bulk it out.

Funny thing is I haven't been able to find a good supplier of millliput over here since my regular train shop closed down. I also know of a Australia supplier of Milliput that sells it pretty cheap... I've been keen to sculpt again for a while so will probably give it a go again rather than just buying one. (sorry for the off topic stuff)

Hello everybody,

I would like to do a little advertising for the Miniature Exchange on CoolMiniOrNot.  I am current organizer myself and had joined as participant in many past exchanges.  Partecipants feels that it can be fun to spread the word through other miniature forums to get more partecipants and therefore more fun.

The point is that a packet of two (or more) miniatures is sent to the following name in the list of participants. You can send any miniature: any genre (fantasy, sci-fi, horror, modern, WWI/WWII, historical, etc.), any scale (but mostly 25/28/32mm), any material (metal, plastic, resin) as long as it is unpainted. They do not need to be in original blister/box, just unpainted.  And you get back your own bag of miniatures from another subscriber. 

It is NOT a chain letter, it is NOT a pyramid scheme. It is completely FREE for everyone to join and exchanges are not made for money but just for fun. No one gets money for organizing/managing the Exchange, it is just the fun of swapping miniatures between painters / gamers / collectors.

Also, the waiting time is much shorter. After the Exchange starts, it is over usually in about 1 month, when everyone got his miniatures.

A wonderful way to peddle minis.  Mostly a colorful mix of scrap and quality minis is sent, usually significantly more than the minimum of two miniatures.  One can even narrow down where you want to send (e.g. only to Europe, or USA, etc.), if you do not want to pay the postage to South Africa... If something goes wrong and you do not receive your packet (e.g. participants disappeared, parcels destroyed, whatever), there is a well stocked miniature reserve form which that person gets something, so it will not remain without his miniatures.

As I said, I think is a nice thing and everything runs very smoothly.  Cute contacts you can still socialize.

All information is here:
http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?62820-Miniature-Exchange-43-(ME43)-is-here!

You can also search past ME threads to see which kind of miniatures were sent during past Exchanges.

Would be happy to see someone else joining, to make thing more fun and interesting for everyone.
Many thanks for your attention.
