Those who can't do... teach

Sculpting Tutorial Session

Yes,I know that's a slightly misleading title as I can sculpt...!

I have been approached to run a sculpting day at Wargames Workshop in Milton Keynes, which I am more than happy to do.  

The Session

The session will include tips on sculpting in general, conversions, anatomy, drapery... basically enough to start you off in the world of miniature sculpture!  There will be some theory work involved but the majority of time on the day will be spent 'hands on'.

I see the early part of the session dealing with general sculpting tips: tools; putty choice; technique - both in theory and practical terms.  The latter part of the session will cover more specific issues for each of the participants (as identified through the earlier part or agreed upon prior to the session).

I should add the following disclaimer... This session will not make you a top level sculptor overnight!  Like pretty much all of the other aspects of the Tabletop Wargaming hobby, sculpting takes time to become good at and years to master.  However, I will be aiming to help everyone who does take part to improve and to take some new knowledge away with them.


The initial aim is to sign up 6-8 people in order to set this up, although the optimum number of participants would be between 10-15.  No previous knowledge of miniature sculpting is needed, although it would be helpful to get the most out of the session.

At this stage there is no firm date for this nor a cost decided for the day, although it is likely to be at some point over the summer (with a cost of ~£10-20 which should (hopefully!!) include some of the materials/tools required - greenstuff, wire, sculpting tools) - this will be decided if enough people are interested and can commit to taking part.  

Obviously, the more people who take part, the more 'successful' the session can be deemed to be (and the better the chance it would have of being repeated in the future!).

Book your place...

If you are interested in learning a bit about miniature sculpting whether you've tried it before or a complete novice, please let me know if you would like to participate and we can get this organised.
