While I had the putty out the other day, I thought I'd sculpt a pair of holsters on this guy so he had 2 pistols. I really like 2 pistols.
To further trick him out, I sliced the arm off an old GZG NI squad leader and pinned it on in place of the original arm. This amounts to probably the most extensive conversion I've done on a 15mm figure, which is quite satisfying and I heartily recommend it. (You can see some in-progress shots in the workbench photostream to the right).
Of course all this was done while prepping the batch of Aliens I got last week. Here is another one, A tall fellow with a pretty meaty looking rifle. Once again from the 15mm.co.uk SMH range sculpted by Eli. As usual, agonizing over a color scheme took longer than painting the mini.
I ordered two of these with the intention of using them as goon bodyguards for the Crime Boss. He's a little big for that though, so now he's some kind of mercenary with a big support weapon.
I'm not sure the photo shows off the length of his neck because of the angle.. But he's about the same height as the Bounty Hunter I posted yesterday.
I was about to start work on another when I noticed his left hand was a blob.. The sculpting on these minis is great, but I'm not having much luck with the castings so far. No matter, he's 1/2 way to having a cybernetic hand now, just have to sculpt the fingers on when the core of the hand cures. All this sculpting is making me think I should build some more tools. So far all I use is a clay shaper and a pin bashed into a flat paddle stuck in an old paintbrush handle. To take my putty mangling to the next level I need a pin in a handle, and some tubes for pressing in circle shapes.
Thanks for looking!
