Ive currently lost my mind and have started converting a 6mm space marine into an adeptus custodian. At most I want 5 for a stand but Im having a hell of a time getting greenstuff to stick. Any suggestions at all?

Superglue and eldar guarding head on, and use some plastic ork boar riders, or orc axe men pony tails and glue them on.

Or if you want to sculp, try another sculpting clay maybe, also wet your tools or they stick to the greenstuff,

I have the same issue. Some times adding a small hole helps if u can.

Otherwise use more yellow than blue in your greenstuff and it will be sticker. If it breaks off after it dries, superglue it.

If you can, drill out the head and put a small wire in its place so the putty has something to stick to. Also, lubricate your sculpting tools. Skin oil works, just be aware that your spouse will judge you.

The Guardian idea sounds like an easier approach though. These should get you most of the way there:

Ive got a dedicated pot of carmex lip balm to keep my tools lubed. Ive noteded water doest last long for 28mm let alone 6 mm. I used a needle and some tiny sculpting tools but the struggle is to keep the GS on the figure. even if my tools lubed (no sexual puns there) it still stays on the tool not the model. I'll upload pics later. Im on to the arms and weapon now. The body is done

Try milliput, the white one is very good and is extra fine and used by a lot of sculpters,
