mix up some green stuff
roll it in to a sausage and apply it to the legs.
Get your sculpting tool.
start to smooth it out
get it as smooth as you can
then do it again on the other leg
go over the model and fix any missups
then roll up a ball of GS
and put it on top of the legs
then push the chest on top
stay tuned for part three

then roll a smaller ball
then put it were the head will be
then put the head on
then when it drys get a file and shave it as smooth as possible
when you're done it should look something like this
later i will probably do one painting alpha legion.
well I hope this was helpful.

Dink dank doo!
Very good Falkus, short, succint and simple. I like it.
Though you need to stop biting your fingernails so much or your skin will grow above the end of the nail like mine...not attractive I can tell you. :P

well im not a attractive person :P

That's a great method man. May I suggest ProCreate as an alternative material to GS? It files down much better.

sure do whatever you want :D

Nice and simple, and very effective.
I think that earns a pinning!
Falkus Kibre - March 5, 2008 06:29 AM (GMT)
cool i didint know this was good enough for a pinning :D

Don't sell yourself short man, it's one of the most seamless conversions I've seen (once painted of course).

Even though I did make this tutorial I got the method from Doghouse just to make that clear.

What is the thickness of the plastic card that you used for this ?

Watch the thread necro, I'll let it slid since its a valid question.

I think i can do this, i thank you 100 times for showing a simple and manageble way to do this.
Not to criticise but all the other tutorials ive seen require GS equal to jes godwyns anyway.
10/10 for simplicty-> effectiveness.
could i ask for more pics for scale idea. like next to diffrent models etc?
