I plan on making conversions to give models some cloaks, robes, and capes. I mean ALOT of conversions. The nearest GW is hours away, so greenstuff isn't so available to me. Is there some other modeling method, or a modeling substitute that I could use that is either cheaper, comes in more supply, or I can find in a hardware store or craft store? Any ideas would be appreciated.

You can buy Kneadite (green stuff's real (ie: non-GW) trade name) on eBay for a vastly better price than you will get in GW.
Just give it a search.
If you want a similar product, look in craft/hobby shops for milliput, which is a very similar 2-part modelling material. It comes in a variety of different colours and grades, I reccomend trying the super-fine white version if you are sculpting anything that will be seen on the finished model.

Check out Home Depot/Lowes and get what Minus_t suggested. I've used the something similar to Kneadite that I've found on eBay, and I like it a whole lot better than the greenstuff GamesWorkshop supplies. Greenstuff is Greenstuff, don't be fooled by whatever name they call it. It'll do the job for you no matter what.
I agree with the guys above, but if you're on a real budget you could superglue on bluetac! Though this is a tiring process :yes:.

Milliput is cheap and plentiful. You'll get 4oz (That's 113g to me) for about the same price as GW's own strips of green stuff.

I'm pretty much echoing what the others have said, but here goes.
You have two options really. You can go for Kneadatite (the putty GW sells as "green stuff"), which can be acquired through many channels; hardware stores, online stores etc. Have a look at this link. I prefer Kneadatite as I find it far more workable than the second option.
Alternatively you could go for Milliput. I started out using Milliput, but now I use Kneadatite. I have heard different opinions on this (and had a mate who could use the superfine grade brilliantly), so I suggest you experiment to see which is better for you. Click here for the milliput website. If you do use Milliput you should get the superfine white variety, as it is the best grade for modelling.
I can get hold of these brands quite easily, be it through online stores or local shops so you should have no problem. You tend to get more for your money if you don't buy the GW brand stuff as well.
Hope this helps mate.
if you are really deperate, you could use bluetac covered in superglue- though do not use it on anything that will be fragile or will need to support something or it will bend/ break.
I just bought a brick of generic play-doh at a dollor store, and like mentioned with the bluetac, I just paint a layer of glue over it and wherever i stick it onto. It works fine, and I just happened to buy the green brick :yes:
i bought some self hardening clay, but it cracked when it dried, so i wouldnt recomend it
where did you say to get some of teh different grades of knedite, cuz i would like to get some, and how much does it cost??
