Hi ! today
I focus on an important chapter of my O&G army, the shields! I was very
inspired by the old White Dwarf and all these nice articles about shields. I remember
how Fraser Gray half-sculpted funny colourful faces shields seemed to be
impossible to modelling for me during the late 80’s.
years later, I found the mojo to modelling my own shields for my O&G. I
used one of my favourite technic, the pressed greenstuff mould. This technic is
pretty easy to learn and apply, the most difficult things here is to find nice
models to duplicate. Luckily, the Goblin Master sculpted plethora of nice faced
shields during his carrier.
How to make your own shields?
: Make the mould. Position the model on a flat surface, coat it with a
lubricant (cooking oil, saliva, etc…) and press on the original model a
generous ball of Greenstuff. Let it dry at less 8 hours, demould the two parts
: Duplicate the original model. It’s very easy, you just have to lubricant the
mould and press a ball of Greenstuff in the mould. Let dry 8 hours and demould.
: Apply the duplicate parts on your own shields. I used the classics Citadel
plastics shields, I filled the gaps between the duplicate part and the plastic
shield with thin weld bead of Greenstuff. I added some details like : Pustules,
piercing, chains and decorative plates.
