Creative Clay Modelling, from Practical Wargamer ~9 Autumn 1989

A recent burst of activity on the Crimean War Wargame Rules Yahoo Group reminded me of this inspirational article by Rod Robinson in an early edition (number 9) of Practical Wargamer magazine. I was inspired by it, but never tried it myself.

I remember having a go - unfortunately my attempts were more suitable as 'dead markers' than front line warriors!

Yes, I tried it too. My attempts weren't even suited as "dead markers". I was tempted to make a HOTT "Blob" army out of them. In the end SWMBO thought they were leftovers and threw them out.

I was doing Ok till he said Airfix sized. That's awfully fiddly for fimo! 40mm maybe.
thanks, Ross

Looking at his creations i wonder whether RR now sculpts for Strelets.....8-)

Would it be possible to repost the second page of the article? It shows a broken link and I can't seem to find the original anywhere.

It works fine for me no problem. If you email me using the Contacting Vintage Wargaming link on the menu at the top of the home page I will email you the scan.

Hello, I just want to share with you some 20 mm figures I made with FIMO using the method devised by Rod Robinson in this article.
You could see them here:
The method is very fast and simple (and I also found it fun!).
Thank you very much for sharing this article!
Regards, César.

Hi Cesar

I had seen your TMP post, also seen your work elsewhere - it is very inspirational and thanks for sharing it
