Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im thinking 'bout starting Imperial Guard and was palnning on having the Grenadiers option Storm Troopers and Cameoline(?) coats/cloaks and wanted to model cloaks on my Storm Troopers, but what should i use Greenstuff, never used or other models cloaks?:ninja: thanks
I'm not sure what the models look like but you could possibly use the IG snipers (not the miniature ones) and swap heads or weapons. Hope this helps
If your done first, you're the winner.
the only way you are going to pull this off on this scale is to use gs i carved the cloak from a gaunt's ghost model for my female commisar the carving of the cloak took 4 hours and that is with a dremmel.
so unless the cloak comes separate from models youre stuck with the GS option.

GREEN STUFF!!!:w00t: Yeah but realistically speaking that's your only option unless you want to carve for four hours like Decado mentioned. You could try looking into the fantasy range, maybe there are models with cloaks that come seperately there but other than that, I think green stuff is your best bet.
Look not where you Fell, but where you Slipped
Green stuff for fabrics is super easy to use. I find it harder to model flat edges or metal things with it. I have an entire delaque gang with green stuff coats, including a ratskin with green stuff pelt that look pretty good and i'm naff at modelling. If you shape it thin enough with your fingers and then let it hang all the folds and bends you'd expect in it happen naturally anyway. Just remember to keep your tool moist.
Does it Hurt? How about now?
all right, I'll try again later with a bigger hammer.
im not sure if grenadiers can have cameleoline, because it isnt a guard infantry unit...
The Skaven Nightrunners comes with cloaks that fit perfect on guards.
Though I recomend the Greenstuff as it comes cheaper and it's quite easy.
Do like this:
Make a thin plate of Greenstuff on plastic film.
Let it dry for a while, 30-40 min.
Cut out rectangels in propriate size.
Attach each of them on a model, plastic film on the outside.
Fold, if you want, the cloak into looking like it's moving or just like it's a cloak.
Take the plastic film off.
Now you'll have cloaks on all your guards and they'll have a nice smooth surface.
Keep the tools wet and have patience.
Thanks that shoud work :yes:
How about this idea. Get some take-away cartons, the aluminium ones. Bend it into sort of a wavy cloak shape, then put greenstuff on it and voila, a cloak.
