A bit late congrats on finishing the 100th model this year.
I'm far far behind you

The red on the crusader's cloak is astonishing.
Really like the effect! The model is neatly done all around.

Can't wait to see those bikes done, they will look really awesome in a group. And like youwashock hinted, a group shot is strongly recommended

Thanks Ezki, as the saying goes, it’s quality, not quantity and you’ve got me beat on that front! . The Crusader was a nice quick palette cleanser that came out pretty well for the speed. I fancy another adventurer once these bikers are done, and since everyone loves a group shot I’ll get the SMH Tactical Squad out too.

I didn’t do any painting on Sunday, but I did a bit of crafting and mould making instead. I tried my card templates again but this time with Oyumaru instead of GS. It seems to have been successful and delivers much neater (if not smooth) results. It’s also a bit thick at the top, but it’s pretty decent I think. I might use some GS in this mould then try to smooth it either before or after it cures in order to make another mould. Alternatively I might try again with the card but maybe on a flat surface and use the Oyumaru’s flexibility to press it on to a pad. Any thoughts on how to smooth and reduce the thickness? I did a tactical marking and an assault marking too, so will mark up the bikers this way I reckon.

Thanks for looking

PS do I paint the sides black and edge highlight them or leave them purple?

Hmmm. I think maybe roll out some GS nice and thin. Cut a card template of the overall shape and transfer that onto a shoulder pad. Smooth it into shape and then sculpt the design into it.

When it cures you can make a mold of the thing. Using the mold you carefully fill the shape with GS and press a new shoulder onto it, let it cure, remove mold.

I'm tempted to try it myself just to see if I'm making sense.

What theCrowe is suggesting makes sense. In that you have a single master shoulder pad to make a mold. One that you used only a thin layer of GS to create.

Once the mold is created, you can spray in a little release agent...let that dry...then impress a small amount of GS into the chapter badge of your mold and then push in a new blank should pad.

The GS will adhere to the blank should pad and be easily removable for the next copy.

Now the trick is to let the release agent appear to try, because if you push in some new GS and the release agent gets on both sides it will not stick to the blank shoulder pad.

I did something similar for my first batches of forage caps for my Imperial Guard...except that I just pushed in the GS into the mold and remove it once dry (the release agent made it so the GS did not stick to the mold - I used PAM as the release agent spray). I used two part epoxy to glue the cap to the cut down head...so I had a deeper GS mold, but the concept is similar.

My two cents,

Thanks guys, I’ve been holding off trying to sculpt the symbol, but using the card as a template might just work, kinda half again on from what I’ve done so far. My lack of sculpting tools was putting me off, but I reckon using the templates should just allow me to use a sharp knife once the GS starting to firm up. I’ll give that a go next I get some hobby time. For the press mould I’ll use Oyumaru which doesn’t seem to stick to the GS. I’ve been impressed with it so far, it’s just my skill that is letting me down so far!
