    This is my latest piece i am working on and depicts three officers doing a recce of their defensive positions prior to another soviet attack. I have used mainly Supersculpey for the main bulk of the work and magicsculpt for the detail areas. I am planning on a industrial scene for the basework and hopefully will begin on it soon.

    All comments and critique welcome.

    Fantastic Steve!

    That's a hell of a lot of work to do from scratch. Is that real wood you've used for the rifle stock? And the awards in green stuff look so good I can make them out: iron cross, assuault badge and wound badge?

    Cheers,
    Jon.

    Guys thanks for the responses to the figures it is much appreciated, i will update when i start on the groundwork.

    Jon ... yes i used real wood for the stock of the KAR as i find its easy to shape the awkward shape of the stock and you are correct with the awards mate.


    Thanks all,

    Steve, another nice piece. I like the variety of hights of the figures. As always the weapons look great. How did you find using the sculpey in this scale? I've only used it for busts so far.

    Hi Steve,
    The figures look good.The poses tell the story and they all are bound together.My favourite is the Hauptmann in the middle.Look forward to their progress.

    Robert... Thanks mate i was trying to get some variation between the figure including height pose and uniform. I love using Sculpey for this scale although i havent used it for anything smaller yet, i find it fantastic for rendering the cloathing as you can play around with it again and again untill your happy. I had some difficulty getting used to it at first especially trying to smooth it out, how do you smooth yours ?

    Andrew... Yes the Hauptmann seems to be a few peoples favourite so far, its my first try at a Tanker crewman and im happy how he turned out.

    Rinaldo... I hope to start the basework today, thanks for the compliment.

    Anthony... Thanks mate and its great to see you on here, keep in touch mate.

    Thanks all

    Steve,
    I use: spit, vaseline, cellulose thinners or talcum powder to work with sculpey.
    When shaping I mostly use vaseline (as with Magic sculp). I have used cellulsoe thinners, but find it rather harsh, but it does clean the putty off the clay shapers!!
    Once finished talc rubbed on is great for final smoothing.

    If you are using Sculpey with other media, do you bake it first and then add detail with the other stuff, or bake all together?

    thanks for the info Robert much appreciated and i will try the talc approach.

    Yes i bake off(well boil for 5 minutes) the sculpey first before adding the apoxy putty details.

    Cheers

    Steve
