Aha, a new masterpiece from your bench! Will be killer, this sculpt rocks! And it shows why -for me- figures are the way to go, you can do so much in this field! I am in of cause watching with dropping jaw and enjoying what you come up with.
This is going to be one animated bust!! I was thinking of an axe cracked into the shield when I first saw your original posting, this however would be too bulky and detract from the scene. Adding arrows is a fine and well thought out idea G! Let the painting commence!!

Guy, you are comfortable with Miliput white?? Any tricks in there?? I have sculpted "tons" of figures and tried out lots of stuff, but the most uncomfortalbe sculpting compounds for me were Miliput white and silver grey. How do you achieve your effects??
Frank, I'm not that experienced in sculpting and honestly I never tried something else but Milliput. I first used the green Milliput but other sculptors (on Historicus Forma on Armorama) recommended the Milliput White Extra Fine. The White works a lot finer and can be smoothened easier. I use water and fine soft brushes. I really want to try to give sculpting another try this year and I look forward to get advice from guys like you, experienced sculptors.

Water and fine brushes? Exactly my tools. But I cannot get the white come out as I would like it. And the weidest is, no problem with Miliput standart grey (which might be the green Miliput you mentioned) and all other sculpting compounds I use. Really ridiculous! But as long as we can use other stuff this is not sooo important. Any YOU BET that I am VERY CURIOUS about you tackling sculpting. As an natural born artist you should have no real problems with it and I will call you Master. Hell, please start soon!
