Luna Wolf Shoulder Pad - Greenstuff Sculpt - Hobby
This is the last of the hobby posts related to my Pre-Heresy Luna Wolf model. I wanted to push my greenstuff sculpting abilities and had a go at sculpting the shoulder pad icon from scratch.
Above is what the actual icon is.
I started by adding some greenstuff to the shoulder pad and working it into the crescent moon shape. Then let it dry completely.
Next I cut out the bottom where the wolf part of the icon overlaps the moon.
Then I added new greenstuff and carefully worked it into the wolf head shape, then added definition as I went along for the eyes and ears. I tried my best to keep the head small but that is the best I could manage.
It looks pretty rough but once painted up I think it came out pretty well. Of course I made a greenstuff press-mould of the pad so I could replicate is easily for any future models.
Never by scared of trying your hand at greenstuff, if it goes wrong just cut it off and start again.
