Citadel Liquid Green Stuff Review

Games Workshop released a new product last week in the form of Liquid Green Stuff. Basically they say that this stuff is designed to fill in minor gaps in a model. Now normally I would just use my regular green stuff putty for these situations, but I needed to hit the $30 mark to avoid the shipping charge from GW so I picked up a pot to give it a try.

First off, always use the same brush for this stuff…one that has already run its course as a paint brush is what I would recommend, no sense in wasting a good brush on something like this. They (GW) say it will clean up with water, and it does, but as all painters know, excess paint can ruin a brush at the ferrule, so after some time playing around with this form of green stuff I can see it ruining a brush faster than being overzealous with paint on your brush.

As a test I used it to fill in the gaps in my Rusted Heroes Varu’Lfur model’s shoulders. I dipped my paint brush into my water first, then into the Liquid Green Stuff. When I applied it to the shoulder joint it was very easy to maneuver into the joint and with a couple of applications it filled up the gap nicely. As you can see there is still a slight gap in his armpit, but I left it until the upper part was dry.

All in all I am rather impressed by this stuff, and Iā€™m going to give this product a solid 8 out of 10.

  1. Thanks for the review, I’ve been wondering this stuff myself. Do you think it would allow minor sculpting, like if the gap is on a warg fur and you need to create a hair texture on the filler?

    • Thanks Pasi and I’m glad the review was helpful! šŸ˜€
      No, it is pretty thin, so you’d have to really pile it on if you wanted to sculpt with it…and at the cost for how much you get it wouldn’t be a good idea. It really is only good for minor touch ups.

  2. Thanks for the review mate. I ordered mine last week so I should soon have a chance to see how it works šŸ™‚

  3. good review, I never heard of Rusted Heroes before so thanks for that too. some really nice miniatures there.
