I've been trying to decide on a good HQ for my green guys who are Blood Axe clan.. I've chopped up a well known model to start creating.. "Bad Frack"
This is my first attempt at greenstuff in a long time.. And apogise for the quality lol. Practice makes perfect... So they say

An update it's been a while and I've ended up changing bits..
The arm I made from greenstuff was garbage and I preferred the arm holding a sigar! And the weapon mounted on the claw really didn't work, so its beeing moved to the arched plate above his head.. A twin linked shoota.
I did some more green stuff work made him a front trench coat with fur but didn't want to cover his back and loose the detail of the power armour..
Oh and added a shoulder pad from a terminater I liked the detail

I think this is an improvement! I've done my share of greenstuff work and I appreciate your courage with it.

I really like the look of the fur collar on his coat but I think it needs more in the back. Perhaps connecting the front greenstuff (battle bibb?) with stone more attaching behind the arms, along the new top plate across the shoulders. That would anchor it more to the core of the body.

I also like the arm changes. The old combination were very symmetrical, especially with the add on guns. Adding in the crux terminatus is also a nice touch!

Thanks for the advice I'll definitely take it on board add some more details connecting the back side of the coat ect..
This is my first time with greenstuff so it's definitely trial and error.

Honestly first time.. but in all honest I love the stuff.. I wish I had tried it years ago. It's not easy to work with but having the ability to craft a one of a kind model is great.

I'm not sure if you mentioned it earlier in your posts, but what tools are you using?

I ask because there are some good and inexpensive tools which can make the process much less frustrating.

At First I started with some cheap sculpting tools meant for clay work I think..
I've just bought some cake making tools with rubber tips after watching a YouTube demo. If you know of any others that could help that would be awesome thanks
