They do look awesome. The fezs are well done and the gray looks appropriately military.
How was it to use procreate? I've never tried it. Mostly I'm wondering whether it's as sticky as GS or as unsticky as milliput?
And when you say old, how long has it been on your shelf? I've had sticks of milliput last 5 or 6 years with no ill effects.

@Mad Grot Docsnik, I guess Procreate is in between Greenstuff and Milliput. Not sure how old the Procreate is. At least 5-8 years.

 

@Badfang Brassaxe, I am liking the grey a lot too. The 13th SS Mountain Division (Handschar) made up of Bosnian Muslims, used maroon in parade and grey fez in the field. The German Askari from WWI used khaki (yellowish) in the field, see pics below.

 

If I was really clever, I would make decals for the fez to simulate some badge device or sew on, but I am uncertain as I feel it would not work.

That's a new red on the fezes, isn't it?  I like it.

Same Vallejo Red Brown primer, but pic brightened up. Also offsets the shoulder pad color well on these Evil Suns.

What you needed were the spear arms from the WHFB boyz... the axe haft is already there and you have two or three different grips/arm positions. I've still got a bunch in my bitz box if you need 'em.

I was eyeballing nob sized arms with stikkas, but they seemed a little smaller than real nob arms, and the wooden shafts were not working for me.

 

Certainly easy to take one of the AoS arms and put any metal choppa head on it for good enough. Probably much better than the time I spent making the double choppa big choppas.

Yeah. Dese are da old whfb arms. They are not nob sized but a bit bigger than 40k ork arms. The command sprue arms are old nob sized but probably a bit smaller than the new plastic nobs. But the spear shafts are smooth so I've found them to be quite handy for a variety of purposes, from stik bombs to handrails.
Again GW size creep ensures that you have to keep buying new bits of plastic. :sowhat

And the new Orruks are larger still. . .I guess trying to match is silly, but what else will I use these bits for, heh.

My Shadow War: Armageddon team. Names are on stickers that I applied, so I can remove them easily.

 

My team was nob with shoota and choppa, two spanna boys each with big shoota with red dot sight, 2 boys with shootas, 3 yoofs with shootas. IIRC

These are all Blood Axes, each of whom earned their fez. They have fancy camo pants (blue spots on white) and chocolate chip camo tops for most. I am not sure how much more SWA I will play since 8th edition is coming up fast. But if I plan to, I will upgrade the paint job on these more. I picked these because the yoofs look good enough and had the least amount of work to do, compared to other yoofs I have.
