If I wanted to consume a 3rd party SOAP Service. Is it possible with Http-Utils or would you suggest just auto-gen it with svcutil.exe or wsdl.exe? 

I would prefer to use the Http-Utils. Not a fan of autogen unless I have too. Shoot, I could even hand code what the svcutil creates if I wanted.

You could as SOAP is just an XML POST, but figuring out what XML SOAP Message to send is easier to work out starting from a valid SOAP request and then templating the dynamic parts of the request out.

ServiceStack also has generic Soap12ServiceClient which may help with making the request (if you’re talking to a WCF SOAP Service).
