Re: Liquid Green Stuff - Why?

I can't remember where (Because there were so many forums saying it) but I heard it's just.. A filler.

The only passing resemblance it has to GS is.. That it is green.. Stuff.

I personally would rather just use kneadatite. Cheaper than anything GW.

Re: Liquid Green Stuff - Why?

I don't know if they still do, but testors used to map a gap filler in a squeezable tube (the same tubes their model cement came in) and it worked pretty good, it was maybe a bit thinner than peanut butter, so it wouldn't drip, but was soft enough to use your finger to put into mold lines and gaps and smooth out, then you could sand or file down the area to make it smooth.

I bought some of the liquid GS the other day, but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I am working on some minis now and will likely try it out soon.

Unexpected foot of snow last night (and more coming), no going into the studio today though. Had I known I would have brought my minis home with me last night!!!

I sure will, I have some joint gaps on some FFG minis I'm working on this week, I plan on using the liquid green stuff and seeing how it goes.

Ok, I used the liquid GS this weekend...

First, let me start by saying I am very disappointed over the last few years in Games Workshop - for many reasons I won't get into here. I also ran a GW store in the late 90's for a few years, so I have a lot of GW experience.

I opened up my brand new pot of liquid green stuff (that I got a few weeks ago and haven't used yet) only to find out it was a dry brick, it was thicker than peanut butter, almost like a stick of butter you take out of the fridge before it is soft and thawed.

I have been very unhappy with all of the citadel paints the last several years, they put in less paint, cheaper paint, cheaper pots and charge more. I still have old citadel paints from like 15 years ago in the original style pots and they are still perfect and ready to use, but everything from the last 5 years or so dries out no matter if it is being used or not!!!!

Part of me thinks this is done on purpose to increase sales on paints... "Hey, let's make the bottles cheaper so they dry out fast and people have to get new paints every year..."  I guess from a business point of view, that might make sense since pots from 15 years ago are still working great and they are missing out on those sales - but if it is true, that is really a line that they shouldn't have crossed.

In any case. After a good 10 minutes trying to get the liquid green stuff 'back to life' by adding water, shaking, stirring, adding some more water, shaking, etc, etc., I got it to what I thought was probably how it should be... a little thinner than catsup.

So once I got going, it actually worked really well and I can say that I would recommend this product to fill in gaps, I did some gap filling on metal Descent minis (From Fantasy Flight Games) and it worked like a charm. I found that I brushed on one coat to fill the gap, then once it dried, applied a second coat to smooth it out. With some water and a fine detail brush, you can work the liquid green stuff to make it smooth and "fade" it so it merges the gap away.

I would give the product itself a good rating, maybe an 8 out of 10, but I would have to advise the person to be cautious about the shelf life and to check the product before purchasing to be sure it is good.
