|This pic is just to show the hoses a bit more.|
So, what did I do?
I made a shoulder strap & belt (to make it look like the tank was strapped to his back) out of thick sticky tape, cut thin & glued down with super glue.
Used the fuel tank from the mini I took the flamer arm from for my Space Ork conversion late last year. The most useful donor mini I've had so far....even if the mini on its own sucks!
Made a couple of hoses from copper wire and ran them from both sides of the tank to the flamer, trying to make them gather around his legs & feet a bit.
You might have also noticed that there's a bit of a gap between the hoses & the base? This was done deliberately, once the basing material has been added the gap will be filled, making the hoses look like their resting on the ground.
So, his finished now, as far as converting goes. Now for the paint.
Time for a lie down & an afternoon nap.
