Default Green Stuff Question

How difficult would it be to model some Brass Knuckles for the new Powerfist for the Venerable Dreadnaught?

I'm thinking of using that powerfist on a Librarian Furioso, and I want to give him Brass knuckles for his Force weapon.

Any thoughts/help would be appreciated.

Regards,
CS

Well it all depends on your ability the only way you can improve or find it easier is just practice, remember everyone was a beginer at some point so remember to keep your tools wet so the GS doesn't stick to it/them. also having referance a referance pic. dramatically helps as you know what the finished product wants to look like. may sound cheesy but it's true that practice does make perfect.

They are not Space Bananas, they are Imperial Fists.

These daemons are hungry for mouse clicks please oblige them.

I think that for alot of people the idea of greenstuffing sounds kind of scary. The fact that you are mixing up this stuff to mold together and that it dries after a certain amount of time. I can totally understand anyone who is hesitant to get into it. However, the greenstuff is actually EXTREMELY forgiving. you have so much time to mold it that it is almost irritating. If you decide to just take a clump of it and mold something out on a model and it doesn't quite look right, just tear it off and try it again. If you thought it looked okay and let it dry but decided it didnt later then just take a knife and cut it right off, no problem.

Honestly, brass knuckles sound pretty easy to do but it depends on the level of quality you are shooting for. Regardless, trying it again and again until it is where you want it is not hard to do. So just go for it!
