Got a few boxes of plastic soldiers for my birthday (I can't beleive how happily my friends indulge in my nerdiness... ).
With all that new raw material I decided to finally have a swing at a truescale marine (apparently they're all the rave these days...). He's made using terminator legs and the rest is normal marine parts. I've added small discs of plastic at the arm joints and where the hands meet the armour though to bulk him up. The hands themselves are also terminator size from the GK termie kit.
All in all a pretty quick and surprisingly effective conversion.
Not bad, though I think the extra plastic would have been better placed with his forearm than his wrist.ReplyDelete
You know what... I think you're right. Consider them redone!Delete
Lovely - ill have to try my hand on one myself one Day.ReplyDelete
Very cool looking and well posed guy.ReplyDelete
I am making mine in similar way, although I am adding some bulk between chest and back half of the chest piece.
I tried builds from normal marines with placticard and greenstuff, but terminator legs + marine chest is more efficient way to do them IMHO
Yeah I agree - It's the most effective way to make 'em. I should probably have added plasticard between the front and back torso like you say but I wanted to see how quick you could do this without any actual sculpting involved. Next time I'll try something more ambitous...Delete
Thanks for the info. Your true scale Marines are pretty darn epique! I had assumed there was a whole lot of faffing around invloved in embigenating them. This looks like something that I could give a go :)ReplyDelete
