I was doing this for my army and decided to take WIP pics. I'm reading my instructions in the video so I sound weird. I would have left too many details out if I "winged it" like usual. Sculptors may laugh at my attempt but I suck at sculpting so this was my process
And yes I'm casting these for duplication because I made the piece ha!

Would polymer clay be available in DIY shops or just arts n craft stores? because this looks very interesting as I'm just painting a land raider
great video as always and I'm highly participating in the next one !
Well you want it to stick, just to a surface you can put in the oven. Most of the cutting on it was done like a saw and if the clay did not stick to the paper it would have distorted the design greatly. 275 F didn't even brown the paper so it's not a problem. And once baked the clay will easily come off the bottom paper.
I used a number 10 (the curved blade ) to carve manzanita and it never broke or bent, and it hardly dulled past a standard knives sharpness. Pretty amazing actually, manzanita is one of the hardest woods in the world.
Be careful if you do use it though, the curve tip slips quite easily.
Good job, I'm going to try this with Salamander Shoulder pads.

Probably Nurgle, Africa has the lock on that.
The Dark Eldar are, by fluff, sex-addicted, space-cocaine snorting, cross-dressing, slave-taking, soul stealing space pirates. They should fit the bill. No one is forcing you to buy minis with man-thongs.

I use Zap Brannigan's art of war and try to jam enough wreckage in their main cannon so it won't work.
