Hey everyone, this is my first attempt at green stuffing anything more adventurous than a mustache or pair of sideburns (be gentle!)
Eventually it's either going to be a Marienburg mercenary captain or witch hunter captain.



Hope y'all enjoy it!

The future Captain of Whatever is an EXCELLENT start. I like the way his coat tails flare out...nice touch. Keep up the GOOD WORK!   thumbsup

Yep, cadian body and legs as the base.
Thanks for the kind words Deafnala, like I say its the first proper thing I've done with green stuff so I wasn't too sure how it would turn out.
I think I've decided to make him a witch hunter captain, put lifts on his shoes to make him more imposing and put loads of tat (books, ropes etc) around his belt so he's ready for anything!

Right after a bit of a shouting match with the green stuff, back with a little more progress and possibly a change of plan. I think since nothing screams witch hunter about him and due to the coat theres not much room to put loads of tat round his waist, he's going to be a mercenary captain/champion.

Anyway here he is (I'm hoping that paint will cover the fingerprints in the green stuff)




He looked a bit fat round the neck so I tried to turn it into a fur ruff of sorts.
Again be kind but any advice is welcome Very Happy

For the first attempt in green stuff it looks realya good. To get rid of the fingerprints you could use fine sandpaper.

I like the fur-ruffed coat. In my limited green stuff experience I smooth finger prints with a little water and lightly rubbing it with my finger, using a smooth tool in tight spots.

When I first got started in War Gaming, a lack of actual 18th century miniatures forced us into converting more modern Britains Ltd figures. Whenever I see one of the Cadians or such being used as a Mordheim conversion, I remember what a pain it was trying to make a tunic uniform coat look like a vest under a turned back coat. GOOD LUCK with it!   What a Face

Nice work! I like the fur on the shoulders! Mabye you could go over the green stuff with the back of a brush to get rid of the fingerprints? Just be sure to do it gentle with small circular movements so that you don't reshape it by mistake!
