Okay, I was just wondering if anyone knew how to model large, thin membranes, like in bat or gargoyle wings. I got a few nid macragge sets for a really low price, mainly for the stealers and mines, but now am thinking of making the fleshborer gaunts into gargs but I'm trying to figure out how to make wings without buying any from GW. I also want wings, not rocket gaunts or anything like that. Does anyone know of an effective, or any, way to sculpt the membrane?

Make a wire mould first, out of copper wire or paperclips, and then roll some green stuff out thin and stretch it onto them. Or, as has been said, use tissue or paper.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

I would go with the wire frame and green stuff option too. Go heavier on the green stuff around the frame itself, as you can model it onto the wire as musculature. If you want a cheaper (though still effective) material than green stuff, try plasticene painted with nail varnish. I have used both techniques in the past to do scraps of clothing, belts, etc. It is surprisinghow thin you can get it to go, whilst still retaining strength.
