    I have just done a conversion on a balrog to give it fur and make it into a 40k Monster from the creature feature rules.

    the fur has too stick out in places, but it is way too brittle and snaps off easilly- bad for transportation purposes

    any advice?

    Don't use milliput?

    Otherwise a coat of varnish might help to keep stuff from breaking off. Not by much but at least it helps some.

    Or some superglue over the parts that stick out?

    I was going to varnish it

    Superglue would help, but ruin the detail

    And I use miliput because its just as easy to work with as green stuff, but is alot cheaper, and you get more.

    Not fun and green though... ^_^

    OK general advice - I use three-

    green stuff- used for organics, it is rather more elastic than the other 2 and so once sculpted it doesnt hold flat surfaces or angles too well, tending to elastically pull it self a littel back towards its original shape, gives a very smoth finish, I also use it for fur/hair

    Milliput - grey - used for basing really and that is it, it has all the properties of miliput superfine (see below) but its surfaces are less smooth

    Milliput white- superfine - smooth surfaces, like greenstuff, but far better for inorganice, stays in the shape it is sculpted, very good for flat surfaces and corners/angles, I would use it for example to put carapce armour on IG. IT can be used for fur/hair. but as you point out is a little more brittle than greenstuff. You need to be carefull when mixing as there is not a percievable colour change to indicate it is mixed

    BUT, mostly I blend both miliput superfine and green stuff, mix up a ball of each, then mix the two balls together, this allows you to get putty with properties in between the 2
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    ta for the advice

    Call me uncomplecated, but that seems a little complicated...

    Plus defies the point of getting miliput for its low low prices...

    I think it should be alright, as long as I have a large enough container and some foam

    You could always use green stuff for the areas sticking out (where being brittle is a bad thing) and then use milliput for the rest. This will still be cheaper than using greenstuff by itself and add the durability that you will want from the conversion. Besides once it is all painted you probably won't notice the difference in the materials!

    Cheers,
