Are there any 28mm cloaks out there? I'm thinking of making fake Tanith for a Tomorrow's War project using Defiance Games marines, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on where to source cloaks that could conceivably be camo-cloaks.

Cheers!

I've heard of people scratchbuilding cloaks with glue-soaked tissue paper. Also of course you could flatten epoxy putty (Kneadatite / green stuff or similar) and make them that way.

I have use the glue soaked tissue paper method, but I used a paper towel it was thicker so it had the body that I wanted. We just happend to have some that were a plain weave, no fancy bumbs or anything like that.

Actually latex can be cut into handy pieces, primed, painted and coated into a scale like tarpaulin. Maybe it works for cloaks too.

Don't waste your condoms but buy thin latex gloves. Maybe you already have some to use when you paint or airbrush?

Also – if you have any of the GW Marauders they had spare cloaks on the sprues – I might have a few around

Check out this seller's other listings – there are other kinds of cloaks there.

There are plastic cloaks in the fireforge games mounted cavalry sets which are quite nice and useful.

+1 on Victoria's cloaks as they are excellent, and the Fireforge cloaks are pretty good too, but not that good on DFG miniatures as they are pretty static while the cloaks are flowin'.

Toilet seat wipes! Available from medical hygiene suppliers, these are a smooth tissue that is VERY strong.

I've gathered the separate cloaks I could find on the miniatures market, and also the tips on making them on your own:

A fair number of heroclix have easily removed plastic cloaks.
