I have noticed quite a few conversions on Tau Online, but they tend not to use the "all-mighty" appoxy putty; better known as Green Stuff. Now I'm not an expert, but I do have a few hints and tips to give.
The Basics
Everyone needs to start somewhere! I've got a few tricks up my sleeve to give the best working green stuff that a modeler needs:
  • Tools: You don't really need the expensive GW Definition: Games Workshopmodeling tools, but they are nice. I just use an exatco-knife, tweezers and a saftey pin...anyting with a point will work! And yes...that is a Tiger and Winny the Pooh Dixe Cup holding the water...Hooray for living at home!
  • Water: Most people do not like the Green because they complain that it is too sticky to work with. The easiest solution is to dab your tools and (sometimes) hands. This makes the Green more maliable without sticking onto your hands.Also be sure to use water to smooth out areas like when you leave your fingerprint on it.
  • Mixing: I can't stress this enough! It may seem redundant, but it is essentually the most important step! GW Definition: Games Workshopgives you the Green in two seperate colors on a stick, blue and yellow. The most important part is to cut off equal amounts and nead them together to make a nice "forest" green color. Be sure to have some water on your fingers so that it does not stick to you! Here are some pictures:

  • Cutting: Most people don't know this, but when your stuff goes dry, you can cut it and file it like a piece of wood! Definitely handy!
