Baffo’s sculpting table 04 – Scaly skins

Posted by on 11:53 am

  It has been a while since my last ‘Sculpting table’. I was planning something smaller for this article, but two weeks ago I got to work on a quick (ish) commission for my local Skorne player and it seemed good material for a wider range of conversions: scaly skin/armor patterns. The commission was to beef up a full unit of Cataphract catrati with cloaks (since the owner doesn’t like the fiddly spikes of the original models). Not to leave the cloaks empty we decided to add raw scaly hides from powerful beasts the individual warriors slayed during the armies desert crossing (let say it is a prerequisite to join this elite veteran unit…). Since we might do a similar conversion on the Arcuarii and/or Incendiarii we also decided to leave furry hides for the harpoon throwers and theme the trophies of this unit on scaly/more armored ‘beasts’. I made an effort to split up the process in comprehensive (I hope) steps and ‘recipes’, so don’t be afraid to try some of these out (you can practice on a piece of plastic card if you don’t want to risk models until you get the hang of it…). I should point out that this type of conversion (cloaks and scaly skin) were my very first experiments in green stuffing more than 15 years ago and helped me build up confidence and tool control, so it might help you as well;)   Tools of the trade Many of the patterns presented below rely on the shape and size of the sculpting tool you are using, so I guess I should first explain in some more detail what I use for my sculpting… I do own a full 20 piece set of metal sculpting tools, a few silicon tipped color/clay shapers and an assorted bunch of improvised tools, but I still use most the base GW sculpting tool I got when I first started. However if you want small and specific details that you can consistently reproduce in a pattern you need to make your own ‘ghetto’ custom tools. I carved mine all out of the remaining frames of GW plastic kits. These are basically miniaturized sculpting tools you make to imprint specific shapes in the modeling putty. The custom tools I used for these conversions are the following:   Making the cloaks Another ‘custom tool’ is what I call the Green stuff press. It is basically just two squares of thick smooth plastic card, one of which has a 1mm raised border on all 4 edges to make evenly thick sheets of putty (I mentioned it in the MoW coats article). You just have to lubricate the surface of the ‘GS press’, so that the putty doesn’t stick to it, initially flatten it with your thumb and then sandwich it between the 2 squares of plastic card. That will give you a round shaped sheet of green stuff that you can cut in the shape you need for your cloak/coat/banner using the ‘knife tip’ from your metal sculpting tool. Once you’re happy with the shape very carefully lift the sheet up without ripping or stretching it and attach it to your model with some super glue (preferably use gel glue since it is easier to control) and while it is still...
