Re: Slowly painted greenskins

As promised, this is the shield which turned out better (still wip, of course):

As explained above, I got a rose thorn, kept just the tip and trimmed it; once glued to the shield I sculpted the nostrils out of greenstuff.

@Tex : That's just perfect. I've already got my hands on some thorns and have started experimenting with them. It would be interesting to know if that's how Kev Adams achieved his results because they just look so similar . The only sad part is I'm going to have to cut the tips of the spikes to add the shields which is a massive shame as I just love the model

@dazza:
Yep, I feel your pain.
Looking at the picture you posted in the other thread, for the lower noses kev has clearly kept the original spikes; the upper ones I can't tell.
Have you tried to slightly bend the spikes and carefully file them to the desired shape?

In any case, when you look at kev's model, you know you HAVE to try and replicate the shields arrangement: it's just sooo good and iconic.
But I can't wait to see your version completed, as I'm sure it'll be a jewel 8-)

Yes thanks Dazza that makes sense through and through. Your descriptions are not as bad as you seem to think lol. Appreciate it.
