Shoulder Pads

Well I have taken some green stuff and made a total of ten Tactical Arrow shoulder pads.  I'll be using these for the next Tactical Squad that I put together, I do think that I will try to make a chevron instead of the Arrow on the shoulder pad of the heavy weapons marine.  For this next squad I think it will be a Lascannon, or Heavy Bolter this time.

10X Tactical Arrows


There is a local Art Supply store here in town that has stuff to make rubber molds.  I think that I might try to make some casts out of resin of some shoulder pads.  We will see how that goes...  I have talked to the guy who runs the store and he makes molds all the time, however not for anything that small.

Nice jobs on the shoulder pads man! I was thinking of trying something like that too, was it hard?

It was not too difficult, I first mixed a small amount of green stuff pressed it onto the shoulder pad, then used a sculpting tool to make the shapes. To smooth out the texture I wet my finger and rubbed it on the green stuff till smooth.
