What to use for sculpting?

Hello All,

I'm new to this whole conversion / modelling side of the hobby, and I've had this hankering to try sculpting a Tyranid Swarmlord but one that looks like a giant Genestealer.

I know this is a hefty project to throw myself into, but hey, go big or go home.

My question to you professionals is what kind of clay / tools / framing should I use to do this project of mine? I know green stuff alone won't be good enough to do a big model out of, but I can use for detailing. I was also thinking about constructing a body frame for the model with thin metal rods or something, just to give it a base to build off of.

Again, I'm completely new to this, so any advice would be appriciated :D.

Damn fine attitude there spanky. I approve.

Pretty much any work can be done in grren stuff. I've been pratting about with it for about a year now with some degree od success, Have yet to take the plunge and fully scuplt something from scratch though.

Grab yourself a set of wax carvers from ebay. You can get a 12 piece double ended set giving you 24 tools for less than the price of 1 GW tool

I got these ones: click me

A fantastic guide for the novice scuplter: click me too
