The Mushroom is synonymous with Goblins, particulalry Night Goblins and many of us here at Da-Warpath use them as part of our theme. I have seen some decent Mushrooms that have been scratch built, after all, having goolged for them it seems its hard to buy decent ones for our needs.

So this is the place to share your knowledge and know-how. So how do you make your mushrooms?


Mine are relatively simple. Firstly I mixed Milliput with some green stuff. The green stuff seemed to make the milliput easier to mould for my needs. I only added a small amount.

I used a flat surface which I covered in vasaline, to make it non stick.

I layed out the milliput/greenstuff mix and flattened it out to around 1-2mm in thickness. I then cut round circles until I ended up with soemthing like this:

Using a knife I scored marks in to it, radiating out from the centre. This will formt he gill part of the mushroom (or what ever it is called). Once dried it should look soemthing like this:

As thats drying I took some more of the milliput/greenstuff mix and rolled it in to a sausage. I made varying sizes so I had a mix to allow me to play around and make different sized mushrooms. Carefully I twisted the sausage and then cut it in to lengths of 1.5cm - 3cm's. These were thn stood on end and slightly flattened:

Once completely dried I glued both bits together to make this:

Dont worry about any finger print marks at this stage as it will all add to the texture and not look like finger print marks when done.

When that was glued I added more milliput/greenstuff mix in top and moulded it in to a dome shape. I wet my fingers quite a bit and rubed them over the dome to smooth it out, a bit like shaping clay. This works quite well with this milliput mix. At the end it should resemble soemthing like this:

Once dried you can add it to bases or scenery like this spider rider base I am working on:

And some I already did a while ago:

Once painted up they should look like mushrooms:

You could experiment and add raised discs for the white spots, or add strips of green stuff radiating from the centre of the dome. I have tended to keep mine simple though.

This isnt the best tutprial in the world but I hope it may inspire or help those that want to add some mushroom magic to their waaagh's.

smile.gif Nice job! I made a tree-sized one yesterday, with much less effort put into it. laugh.gif I used something like blue-tac and just made a vaguely mushroomoid shape, put it on a stem and sealed it with wood glue. Need to get me some milliput or similar, though!
