How to make your own miniature wings

Posted by Cogni den 11. august 2016

(Posten er på engelsk fordi jeg allerede hadde skrevet den på engelsk i wikien min)

Wings are expensive, but you want them. So how do you get them for less money?
I’ve found a range of options for how to do this. None of them are easy to do well with fine details, so I’m still looking around.

The easiest methods will give you flat\2D wings, which in my opinion never looks natural.

3D wings (bent wings)

  1. Green Stuff + wire, method A (3D)

    1. Make a wing frame of wire
    2. Sculpt with Green Stuff
    3. Example: http://thetyranidhive.proboards.com/thread/39416 
    4. Example: http://midwestmonsterlab.blogspot.no/2012/02/hades-vampire-lord-wip-and-green-stuff.html
    5. Example: http://www.miniwargaming.com/content/baby-orc-wyvern-sculpt An Image
  2. Green Stuff + wire, method B (3D)

    1. Apply Green Stuff to a baking sheet
    2. Thin it and smooth it out
    3. Let the Green Stuff harden for 40 minutes
    4. Make a wing frame of wire
    5. Apply wing frame to Green Stuff
    6. Put on latex gloves
    7. Fasten the wire and shape the Green Stuff with your fingers
    8. Let harden fully
    9. Example: http://mandragoreminiatures.free.fr/tutoailedragonanglais.pdf
  3. Green Stuff + Instant Mold + existing wing (3D)

    1. Use Instant Mold to make a 2-part mold of an existing wing
    2. Put Green Stuff between the finishes mold parts, press together and apply pressure for x hours.
    3. Example: http://www.ulthuan.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=37972&start=30 Image
  4. Green Stuff + Instant Mold + Magic Sculpt + existing wing (3D)

    1. Use Instant Mold to make a 2-part mold of an existing wing
    2. Mix Green Stuff and Magic Sculpt about 1-1. The result will be softer than pure Green Stuff.
    3. Put the mix between the finishes mold parts, press together and apply pressure for 8-12 hours.

Tom for Green Stuff :\

Posted by Cogni den 12. september 2013

Mens jeg ryddet og sorterte bitz så tenkte jeg at jeg kanskje har nok bitz til å lage en drage. Som sagt så gjort.
Men nå er jeg tom for Green Stuff – akkurat når jeg trenger det. Vingene får vente til senere.

Formstøpingsmaterialer

Posted by Cogni den 17. oktober 2011

Jeg har oppdatert formstøpingssiden med en liste over materialer jeg har lest brukes til å caste miniatyrer og bitz. Det var flere forskjellige materialer enn jeg forventet, which is good.

En pen gjeng med umalte, ferdig limte figurer.
Her er det bare å velge og vrake hvilken figur som frister mest å male
Ding 3’000kr spent siden januar:p

Litt oppdatert statistikk på sendingstider(kjøpsdato->pakke i posten) fra forskjellige nettbutikker:
1. Ebay div selgere: Median 10 dager, 7 bestillinger.
2. Maelstrom Games: Median 11 dager, 4 bestillinger
3. Chaos Orc Superstore: Median 11 dager, 1 bestilling.
4. FRP Games: Median 29 dager, 1 bestilling(sigh).
Lenge leve Ebay!

Så fant jeg ut at *kremt* når man bestiller figurer stadig vekk, så må man alltid sjekke hvilke figurer man tidligere har bestilt… Ellers risikerer man å kjøpe dobbelt av opptil flere figurer, fordi man ikke husker alle bestillingene…

Så har jeg bestemt meg for å teste sculpting.
Gjorde først litt forarbeid med å finne ut av utstyr som trengs, og hvilken clay\putty som er greiest  bestille.
Procreate anbefales av flere sculptors  for nybegynnere. Det viste seg dessverre å være et veldig dyrt, laveste hektopris jeg fant var 98kr.

Green Stuff er den «alle» bruker, og er lettest å få tak i. Den blir dog ikke anbefalt for nybegynnere, pga noen spesielle egenskaper den har. Laveste hektopris jeg fant var 57kr.
Milliput virker å være favoritt#2, antagelig fordi den er mye bedre enn Green Stuff for detaljer og skarpe kanter. Den kan være vanskelig å bruke, men prisen slår alle alternativer med god margin – Laveste hektopris jeg fant var 12kr!
Diverse andre alternativer finnes også, men øvrige er mindre tilgjengelige.
Egentlig ville jeg gå for Procreate, men droppet det pga prisen. Så fant jeg et veeldig godt tilbud på Milliput på Ebay, og gikk for to pakker av den. Jeg måtte trippelsjekke infoen i annonsen for å tørre å kjøpe. Inklusive frakt er hektoprisen 26kr, fortsatt ekstremt billig.
Om noen andre vil ha, så er annonsen her.

Utover Milliput’n har jeg bare bestilt carving tools og armaturer. Burde egentlig hatt noen filer også, men jeg ble liksom ikke overbevist av utvalget. Ser det an når jeg har prøvd å lage en figur tenker jeg.

Armatur er egentlig ikke nødvendig, men jeg tenkte det kan være god hjelp i starten. Da vet jeg at anatomien blir riktig iaf, og jeg tror anatomien kan bli en utfordring siden sculptinga må gjøres bit for bit og planlegges. For korte bein  o.l obvious anatomiske feil ødelegger hele figuren imo.
