Aldous and Huxley

I’ve had an ogryn conversion in progress for what seems like months and spent some time today getting him finished off to a state I’m happy to undercoat him. So this is the last change for a WIP shot before then. Also the close up shots are showing me a lot of things I really should smooth out and tidy up before he gets sprayed.

He’s converted from a standard ogryn, with the ripper gun cut down into a pistol which was made from plasticard tubing. If I’d had an auto-cannon drum to use life would have been a lot simpler I think.

The backpack took me a lot of tries to get to something I’m happy with. This is it’s third incarnation. The fan in the centre is from zinge industries. The rest was built up around it with plasticard, and parts from a mechanicus backpack and an ork snazzgun.

Finally I felt this little guy was the perfect accomplice for him. He’s the simplest of conversions – a MaxMini gasmask head trimmed down a little on a gretchen body.

Tunnel Runts, WIP

I’ve had these conversions knocking around on my workbench for a while and spent a bit of time trying to get them finished off and ready to be primed.

The first guy is made from a plague monk and the left over head and arm from the Dark Vengeance cultist from the previous post. The right arm is from an Ungor (I think?) holding a plague monk sword in reverse. I’m amazed looking at him at just how much greenstuff he has on him.

His colleague is a similar conversion but with flagellant arms and weapon swaps. The chainsword is from Victoria Miniatures as is part of the backpack. I also greenstuffed him some hair as the “bald ghoul head” look has been done a lot before.

Cultist conversions

I spent some time this weekend working on finishing up more conversions of the cultists. I’ve had these on my desk for a while and both were pretty close, just needing a little tidying up.

First off, a heavy flamer conversion using Cadian arms and the flames from a flagellant head. When I paint this guy up I’ll have a go at OSL as there’s a big obvious light source up there on top!

Next up is another cultist converted into a duellist pose. This guy was a happy accident, he was originally going to be holding a heavy weapon but didn’t quite work out. He uses the sword left over from the cultist champion and a scion pistol, as well as a head swap from the admech style cultist.
