|All painted up|
As my UNSC collection lacks a grenade launcher, I set about one of my spare SAW troopers. I planned to do something with this mini anyway, as the SAW is not that easily distinguishable from a rifle for me.
I wouldn't ordinarily convert a painted figure like this, but hey.. It's 15mm. If it all goes wrong I'll buy another whole fireteam for like £3.
So I whipped out my clippers and snipped off the end of the gun, then puttied on some bits to help it stand out. The magazine is supposed to be a big drum full of 40mm grenades, and I gave him some packs to carry ammo in on his back. I'm getting faster with the putty.. This only took about 20 minutes :)
|A snip here, putty there.. Grenade launcher!|
I'm all set for my next game now. Fingers crossed we meet some hostiles this time ;)
