Miliput is a very nice sculpting medium. It works easier than Green Stuff & dries quicker, however it doesn't have the capability of holding super fine details to the degree GS does. Of course, using it in combination with GS COULD yield some very nice stuff. geek

Deaf's right. I've heard that it makes good armatures and armour plates.

Milliput behaves very differently than GS. It's good for bulking out areas, terrain, bases or as a wash for blending the transition between sculpted areas and the model itself.

Milliput is very cheap in comparison to other products and comes in a variety of grades for use on different things.

I personally would recommend Procreate/Grey Stuff as your baseline sculpting medium. It is easy to use and reasonably cheap so it can be used for bulking out areas without destroying your bank balance. I use a range of putties for different jobs (Green Stuff, Brown Stuff, Procreate, Milliput), but then again, I do a lot of sculpting so want the right tool for the job. If you just want one putty that can be used for all jobs then Procreate is good enough.
