Hey guys, I've got some Lords and Heroes for my dwarf army, and I wanted to give their cloaks that effect that they're made from animal pelts. Maybe with a cream-colored pelt across the shoulders, while the rest of it is a brown fur effect, or something.
Does anyone have some pics of any figures they've done this with, or really just any idea of how to go about it?

Do you need to know how to sculpt it or paint it?
Painting fur is as simple as base color, wash, dry brush. The fur lends itself well to picking up dry brushing.
Sculpting fur is fun; you basically need to poke at it with a sculpting tool, working from the lowest layer to the highest.
Here is an example of some fur I did recently.
looking at those pictures, did you put just one chunk of green stuff on each side and texture? just want to clarify what you mean by 'layers'. but yeah, what you've done there is exactly what I'm trying to achieve.
Hehe, I made my last ed. Chaos Chosen unit like that guy you made there, isitused.
As for the original topic, being in the painting forum I guess you meant painting, and it really depends what kind of colour scheme you're using for your dwarves in general, do a fur effect to match it, bearing in mind the natural range of fur colours from beige through brown to black.
