Tyler M. here with a quick tutorial on how to sculpt skull icons onto your models. Who doesn’t love skulls?!
If there is one thing that the denizens of the 40K and Warhammer Fantasy universes never seem to have enough of it skulls.
I recently taught myself how to sculpt these when I needed to fancy up a bolter for a Space Marine. I then perfected it when I had to sculpt about 20 of them for a more recent project which I will be putting up here sometime soon. After you know what you are doing these are a very easy and simple way to spruce up an model that needs some extra detail.
Lets start off with a brief overview of the supplies you need.
Looking over the model I chose to add the skull to his right knee pad.
