Hey all. I’ve got a bit more done on the Dark Angels Standard Bearer. At this stage I have finished the general sculpting of the banner shape and have given it a thin coat of black so I can spot the areas that need a little light smoothing. I think I’l also re-shape the tabs holding the banner to it’s pole a little.
After that I’ll be getting on with the really fun bit. Freehand painting the banner design. Oh! and attaching his other arm and backpack too.

I use acrylic liquid filler. Vallejo make an excellent plastic putty but GW's liquid green stuff is pretty good too. I think it very slightly with a tiny bit of medium and give the areas a light coat. Leave it to dry for a good while and then very gently smooth it back with a tiny piece of 400 grade sandpaper attached to the end of an old brush with a bit of blue tack. 🙂
Ah, cool, I'll give that a go. Cheers!
Great tip! Thanks!

How are you planning on smoothing out the surface of the banner? Got an Ork warboss whose arm is a bit lumpy after some GS work so I'd be interested in hearing about this.
