I went out and bought me a sm combat squad (5 basic plastic troops) for my kill team. I want to make them a bunch of sneaky bastards, so I will repose them as such. Most of the poses will be kinda hunched over to show them sneaking about, but I want at least 1 to be knealing and taking aim. I have no idea on how to go about reposing the legs like that so any help or pictures of a similar conversion would help me a bunch!
Well, I WAS going to post a link to the Fortress of the Unforgiven, but that link seems to be down. The rest of the site works though so maybe it'll be fixed.
Here's the link in case it comes back: kneeling marines
There was also an article in UK WD about converting dynamic marines a few issues ago. If you don't have it, check at the local store if they have any back issues, or maybe one of your friends have it? It was probably in WD299.
I would say you need to cut out all the joints (the wrinkly bits between the armor. Then you can re-pose the legs anyway you want using pins, and then re-build the wrinkle stuff with green stuff.
Thatâ€™s how I'd do it. (Y)
Here you go, look at the standard bearer, should give you an idea.
Oh and Tubal, the owner of Fortress Unforgiven has packed it in .
They are going to leave the current content up for one year, then take it down. No more updates.
Sucks I know, I used to use it as my fluff base.
I have seen a photo recently of the 'New' Space Marines sprue, which includes legs for a kneeling marine.
Heres the sprue, please don't ask when it might be out, but I will remind you that in WD301, by the pictures of the forthcoming Terminators it refers to 'the new Space Marines'...
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
As has been said, cut the joints. When kneeling the 'bottom' foot may need adjustment (ie cut a bit to bend).
[This applies mostly to standing marines - I doubt there'll be much on a kneeling one] When you redo the 'ribbing' in the joins, use a knife when the GS is about an hour or so dry. Start in the middle an work your way outward.
