So I got struck by a random spur of inspiration, and decided to try my hand at some conversions using green stuff. I had a few chaos marine parts lying about and I wanted to make something flashy. Here's what I've come up with. Like the title says, it's a WIP. Comments and critiques appreciated. Oh, and sorry for the crappy image quality, my cameras MIA, so these were taken on my phone
(Also, I can't seem to get the 'insert image' button to work, is there a trick to this? In the meantime, here's the links)
*Edit, got the images working, thanks to Leech and Paint Mokey

I think that is good. The green stuff cloth is a nice touch and it is well done too. I think you could make his shoulders more impressive by giving him some shoulder pads.
I'm not sure why the 'insert image' does not work for you. I do it by first deciding where the image will go and then I copy the URL of the image I want with the right-click button on the mouse. I then go to my post and select the spot I chose for the pic and then use 'insert image'. The pic is then pasted into 'insert image' with the right-clicker again and then it can be put into the post. Hope that helps.
If you replace the URL with IMG then it will work fine. I like the streamers but maybe you could drape them a bit more so they appear dragged back by the wind. It will make the guy look like he's flying forwards. Good looking model, though.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Thanks for the feedback guys. I do intend to put shoulder pads on him, I even have them picked out, but I'm going to leave them off for painting, it's getting a little cluttered for my mediocre painting skills to handle. As for the cloth trailing back, I was going to do that originally, but i decided to try to make it look like he's shooting up into the air, and not moving forward so much, if that makes sense. I had a lot of fun with this model, so I'll probably do something similar at some point, and maybe try the streaming cloth idea then.
I like what you've done here. What are you using when working with your GS? I've noticed quite a few people's work where the GS looks as though its got a shine to it, whereas mine just looks like its got more of a matt finish to it.
How did you go about doing the robes? It might benefit my conversion I'm working on if I can get them right

I am the Hammer...
As for how I did the robes, they're not really robes, just a strip of cloth hanging down. I just rolled out a sausage of GS, then used a cylinder to roll it flat, trimmed up the edges (plenty of water so it doesn't stick to my surface or my rolling pin, otherwise it stretches when it's pulled off) and waited 5 minutes for it to set a little bit before twisting it into place.
Hope that helped mate, and thanks for the feedback
Very nice work! The GS cloth look very smooth and consistent in shape.
