RE: Bull CentaursMind 04-11-2007

I'm just a beginner with green stuff and converting but I think I can give you some advice.

The first thing is the beard, don't do it from a single piece of flatten gs, it's better if you try to use more small "sausages", the final effect is more rounded and more detailed. (Xander's videos are great, watch themHappy )

Another important thing, if you must convert something be sure to fill all the gaps and remove before the mold lines. I know it's boring but if you always do these 2 things is half the job done.

The hat imho is a little too small down on the head but if you like it this way keep it Happy

You seem to have a lot of ideas but try to not overdo. It's better to start with something easy and essential. You can add a world of details when you improve your gs skill, just try to keep everything as clean and simple as possible for now.

Your idea is cool, but i agree with Mind you need to practice with the beards.

P.S. If you are a biginer with greenstuff (as meHappy) first practice on you main blocks of units as chaos dwarfs warriors and leave charecters and monster for converting at the end.(I know it's very hard to resist of making them first Happy)

Thanks for the replies Cheers!

I did use Xanders method for the beards but sometimes I crushed it with my finger (Hobgoblin) and had to start from one block, I promise they were good first timeTongue

Also I made these today as they are the only models I had to operate on and I was itching to get some CDs done, I am buying Skull Pass tommorow so this should help Wink



Edit: I worked on these today and I have made them look quite a bit better, I won't post new pics now but you may see them when they are painted.

RE: Bull CentaursHashut's Blessing 04-11-2007

As seems to be a recurring trend (due to the early hours at which I seem to scour the sight) I would need them painted to comment properly. But, I would say that perhaps the legs of the horses are slightly too long as is the length of the horse body. Shorten tehm a little bit and they'll be incredibly good, IMO. Not that they aren't already.

It is a bit hard to tell which part is meant to be what at this stage.  Much easier when they are painted.

Are those pins that you've used as hats?
If so, I think it's a good idea but they should probably be a little fatter.
