The title says it all. Growing up I became a huge fan of Super Sculpey. It is most likely the number one reason I enjoy the hobby so much. As a kid I made miniatures for all my friends when we played DnD, in addition to Star Wars ships, Arwing fighters and my favorite Battle Tech Mechs. I made so much stuff with it I could fill a ledger.
Most people know who FTW Ron is. The Raven Guard models he has been converting have been amazing to say the least, and since he's kind enough to post how he works some of his magic I finally decided to try.
I saved this image a while back because I was planning on using some Ultramarine Tyrannic War Veterans as sternguard vets in my Raven Guard successor chapter.
(Thanks Ron for the things you do for the community! I know you've helped me a lot through your posts!)
The models have had the Ultramarine Iconography shaved off for months and since they are the last infantry squad I'll be painting for the army I decided that now was better than never. As soon as I began I remembered how much I loathe working with green stuff. Besides gap filling and the odd roll or disc of it in small places I have avoided it in my modeling for the past three years. I just can't stand the consistency of it after being spoiled by Sculpey since 6th or 7th grade.
But regardless of my preconceptions I went ahead, and after making a few practice pieces I turned out these.
