looking really good. If I may suggest something, I think it would look even better with some tubes or small vents (on the lower part aka legs) covering parts of the armor, or extra bolts, to kind of break the obvious fantasy origin of the mini. Maybe a grenade on the belt for a 90´s look.I really like the backpack and the bionic arm. The head choice and the bolter are spot on ! A true scale epic model
Cheers mate. I kinda like the legs as they are actually - don't really see the need to mess with them. A grenade or two is a good idea though!
Very cool! I like the organic look of the armor in combination with the mechanical look of the backpack...awesome!However I would add something to the helmet, maybe one single spike/horn piercing through the sculpt on his right side (left on the picture), or maybe some bloated nurgle thingy...even though I like the idea better!Very very good conversion-I can't wait to see him painted!Cheers, Marc
Thanks for the feedback Marc!I've actually tried adding horns/spikes to the helmet, but in the end the clean look always looked best so that's what I'm going with.
Looking great! The old bolter with stock and the shield really finish him off nicely IMHO. Look forward to seeing the painted mini. P.S would love to see your take on a noise marine!
I sort of did actually! At least a slaaneshii marine: http://convertorum.blogspot.se/2013/08/master-of-desire.html
Fantastic looking model! The old school bolter works perfectly! Thoughts about making the stock of the bolter wooden? A nice rotten looking wood would further reinforce the old Plague marine look. That might be more effort than it is worth (because it already looks great). Also, I am not sure I like the extra blade on the top of the axe head. It looks a little out of place and tacked on (also it is super crooked..which could have been by device...). Always an inspiration!
Cheers Adam! Great feedback!I was actually thinking about a wooden stock, but other than sculpting it I don't see how it could be done. As you say the question is how much it would add to the mini. Perhaps it's worth it - I'll give it a good think. The blade is intentionally wonky but perhaps you're right - it just looks plain wonky. Good point.
The backpack is from the flash gitz sprues right? Regardless, looks great and really brings the composition together.
Yep. It's from the flashgitz. Lots of cool gubbinz in that kit...
Great work! I agree with Adam Wier that you should drop the spike from the top, looks a bit too tacked on. However, if you want to keep the axe "spiky", you could put it on the back.Another element you might consider is cutting off the pointed toes, and sculpting a cloven hoof...Are you going to go pre-heresy for the color scheme, or more of a modern rotten green?
I've fixed the spike on the axe. Works better now methinks. Resculpting the toes feels a bit like converting just for the sake of converting. I kinda like the toes as they are...As for paintscheme I'm going for very, very off-white, so I guess pre-heresy. Definitely not green...
