Hello all:

I have decided that I want to make a "Buck Tail" Brigade unit and I was wondering if anyone has seen/made/substituted/…….. anything for 28mm deer tails?

I was thinking of sculpting out of milliput or clay but thought I should check and see if anyone has experience with this.

I think sculpting them would be best. I have seen some on GW sprues for 40K, but that was a while ago.

I actually use semi-dried acrylic paint, but that is for 20mm. If you use milliput, acrylic paint, when tacky is great for creating hair texture.

Old Glory does the "bucktails" in their ACW range.

I have about 300 figures and was going to convert some to them. I hate to add to my painting to do pile.

Thanks for the responses!
