You! Yes, you who can create the unthinkable by mixing blue and yellow stuff.
I am looking at you and you know who you are. You have the power and right now your skills in the fields of Green Stuff manipulation are required.
I am asking the hobby community for assistance with my current project and this time I am hoping for your guidance and tutelage.
What is it this time?
While building my brand new Ogres I was constantly trying to come up with a theme for them. At first I wanted to give them an Ice theme and use Thundertusks, the Dragonhide banner and even some Yhetees. Then I scrapped the whole thing and decided to go with a... Fire theme, which would have Firebellies, volcanoes, lava.. you know how it goes. But it was all too simple, all too.. bland. I really needed something special and more flavorful.
Enter Araby Ogres.
- Ali Baba and his 40 Gnoblar thieves
- Firebelly on an Araby Magic Flying Carpet
- Djinn Slaughtermaster
- Efreet Gorgers
Green stuff. Not the amount of it that will be needed, but its use. I think I'm decent when it comes to making simple things out of Green Stuff, but I have always been a learner. I guess I just prefer to visually see what I need to do and how to do it before I attempt it. It's less scary that way.
I this situation I know what I want to do with Green stuff.. I just don't know how to do it or where to begin. It's.. too daunting a task.
And this is where I'm asking you for help.
I would really appreciate any and all tips, pointers, maybe even videos on how to start this project. Some of the things I'll need to learn how to sculpt are turbans, vests, fezzes.
Can some of you sculptors extraordinaire help a fellow hobbyist out? Think of it as a challenge and a way to help me and the community as I'm pretty sure that whatever you sculpt, write or record will be extremely useful not only to me but to a boat-load of gamers.
Also, any painting tips on how to paint my Ogres would be very appreciated. I want them to have a Middle-Eastern look, without being too extreme.
