Here's the first victim, originally the Las-cannon dude;
|Have Plasma-cannon, will travel.....and kill lots of shit too!|
|I'm either gunna GS this gap or install a power pack for the cannon instead.|
|I'll make a beefed up shoulder pad with GS to fill this gap.|
I wanted to use an original Plasma-cannon from the RT range, but I wasn't able to locate any....or more specifically, any at a reasonable price! So I had a look at Forgeworld under their 30K range & noticed that they produced a heavy weapon set that IMO looked better than the originals!
I replaced the helmeted head with a resin copy from the donor mini that I mentioned in the previous post. To fill in the big chunk I had carved out of his right arse cheek I added a helmet, also taken from the donor mini.
Next up was the Lasgun guy;
|Here you can see his right shoulder pad that I repositioned ever so slightly.|
|It wasn't by much, but it allowed me to lay his arm across his chest in a more natural position.|
|So that he could wield this intimidating Chaos Renegade Grenade launcher!|
If I had known which weapon I was going to give him I probably could have kept the bulk of his appendage's intact...hindsight can be a bitch when converting up minis. The Grenade launcher was kindly donated by GoblinLee. Hope you approve of my heretical use of it? Cheers buddy :)
I've still got a little bit of tidying up to do before I'll call these guys finished, but the bulk of the conversion work is done. Next up is some extensive filling & reshaping, then they'll be ready for the brush. So, what do you guys think? Do you reckon that they look better or worse than the originals?
Cheers all :)
