Thanks, @SuboptimusPrime! Much to think about. I do of course try to look stylish while hobbying but with lockdowns and working from home for nearly a year, “stylish” has become a rather relative term anyway.My observations on Milliput, which I started working with recently: Green Stuff feels like working with plastic, Milliput feels like working with plaster. Or clay, depending on how much water you use with it. As @Unslain said, since it's water-soluable, you can control its consistency somewhat, and it does make a great paste for gap-filling. Recently I've tried to use it to offset something I am still struggling with when working with GS, which is getting a smooth surface finish. And while I'd say you can sand GS too, Milliput is much easier to sand and looks better.
One downside I found: Milliput is messier than GS, both because it's coated in some sort of emulsifier to make it storable, and it's water solubility makes it prone to staining stuff. But then again, if you put on your best suit and use your finest dishcloth as a surface for hobbying, you only have yourself to blame. But you do look stylish, cannot be denied.
In any case, I managed to finish the Mining Laser drudge today. He took a lot of cutting and fitting to get rid of the original genestealer arms. It’s slightly wonky, but not so much I’m not happy with it. Any thoughts?
Next up will be painting these two to match the rest of the gang, or at least as miners wearing more or less the same colours...
