finally weekend again and time to prepare some more stuff for my hobby.
A while back I posted a picture about latex and latex forms. Possibly you have been wondering what it is.
What did I need (materials):
- German sharp shooter Major Koenig pack by Battlefront Miniatures (especially the broken walls sections)
- Flock / Static Grass
- Medium size base (selfmade)
- Liquid Latex
- Lego bricks
Take the base and around it model with the clay something that looks like a widespread "U".
use the broken walls sections from the pack and stick them into the clay
take one or more different armoured cars with the metal parts and gently push them into the clay and extract them again (gives some nice texture)
Wait till the clay hardens
Build a small container with lego bricks around your marker
Pour liquid latex over it so that it is covered
Take your time. The liquid latex as thick as it is now takes ages to dry and no it doesnt get faster in the oven....
Extract your original marker from the latex, break it to get back your original battlefront parts
Use resin or plaster to get as many markers you need.
Basecoat, paint and flock them... est voila... enjoy.
PS: If you need some of these.. let me know and I will be happy to deal along with you. Possibly will put them on ebay as well
