Got the idea for this simply with the spare bits from a Warrior boxed set. From the set, I only need 10 of the Warriors, and 2 of the Scarab swarms, so I threw this guy together! Its simple, effective, but most importantly - free!!
The peices I used are:
-1x Scarab swarm base
-1x necron warrior, minus legs
-1x extra warrior gun barrel
-1x extra warrior gun 'cable'
-A bit of Blu-Tak (green stuff works of course...)
-The edges of the sprue (Bare with me here...)
First, I grabed the Sprue edge and bent it into the desired shape - sort of a 'snake' looking thingy. If finished off the bottom of the tail with Blu-Tak, giving the look of wrapping around itself. This formed the Warith's tail. Green stuff could also be used here, but i've never bought any. Next, a Warrior torso is glued to the top of the tail. The normal warrior arms are glued in next, but cut off at the forearm. The forearms are then replaced with the 'barrel' off of a Warrior gun. I kept it as long as possible to give the wraith extra long arms. Head is then glued in place. To finsh off, and to give the tail a bit extra, the two Warrior gun cable are lined down the tail, near the torso.
So thats my wraith. Pics are attatched. They are the best I can get at the moment, 'til i get a proper digi camera.
Won't that just morph if you apply pressure?
Just jam things like nails on its hands, isn't that all wraiths hands are? just pointy bitz?
Anyway, I coat the blue tak in super glue anyway, and its been oretty good to me so far. I just couldnt be bothered spending money on green stuff, when I need the blu tak just to assemble the models anyway (sometimes, super glue aint so 'super' after all)
I guess attatching anything I cant find thats pointy into the hands is an option, but I reckon Id have a tough time trying to get it to stick. Besides, is there something wrong with axes for hands?
I like the pose and all the bits you have used... and I can say it is the first time I saw a conversion out of Blu tac...
The one thing I think it is missing it is a robe... and old and worn out one... just like the original model!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
hmm I like it. When I started reading this thread I was more than a little bit sceptical. I can't say that I am blown away so don't get too excited but this is a really great conversion. You have followed the main aim of converting which is to take stuff which is not so cool and make it cooler. Kudos to you!
What else are you upto and do you have more planned for this guy?
Ill work pn it a bit, and when I have 3 or so fully finished, Ill repost.
