Odds and Ends (Sorcerer WIP)

Here we have my first attempt at sculpting with Citadel greenstuff. What joy! What bliss! What a vast and entirely welcome improvement on the garbage I've been using!

This figure is the very early stages of a Word Bearers Chaos Sorcerer, or something like that. I cast skulls to pin the fabric draped across his chest which will, in theory, cover where it meets his shoulders, but once they were dry I decided that they were too big and have thus been sent scurrying back to the bits boxes. I also have a truckload of conversion bits on the way from Horde o'Bits, which should satisfy for once and for always my need for books, banners, and scrolls.

Added a draping piece here:

So far, he consists of a normal CSM breastpiece, filed to eliminate the rivets and piping; a Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard head, filed to remove the halo; and massive quantities of epoxy and KY jelly. I'm sure you'll all be pleased to know that this time, instead of my hair, it ended up in my mouth. I'll be adding a crown of horns to the top of his head and a bunch of other elements as-yet-to-be-determined. He's legit, though-

-I bled for him.

I also spent a tiny part of the day transforming a $4 set of ugly orange dice into my new D&D partners in crime. Gloss black numbers on matte black dice:

I valiantly resisted the urge to spray the sides opposite the high numbers with multiple coats of primer. I hope the universe rewards me with better rolling karma than I've enjoyed to this point.

The Spoils of Birthing-Victory!

I have: Codex! And Vindicator! And Sanguinary Guard! And, by extension, NIPPLES!

Does anyone (besides Rabidchild, to whom I have already applied) have a brand of greenstuff that they prefer? I bought two sizable tubes of it from Gale Force Nine, and it's wretched- uncommonly sticky, grainy, and quick-drying. I've tried water and water-based lubricant, and it still sticks to everything. I've oiled it to the point where I can hardly keep hold of it. I've got it in my hair. Help?!?
