    Vostroyan Officer conversion...

    With the release of the Vostroyans i finally have my answer for a set of infantry figs to finish off my mechanized IG army that will have the "soviet" flavor i am looking for.

    I like to always convert my HQ figs so I set about making this Vostroyan officer conversion to use as my HQ. The top half if from the fantasy Kisselvite Bear rider guy. Legs and top of hat from a vostroyan fig. Various plastic bits and a little greenstuff work(not my specialty to be sure)

    I wanted to represent his master crafted plasma pistol and also his trademark item(the bearskin cloak) and so forth as well as his bionics and carapace armour as well.

    I still need to blend/hide the join at the waste some more but the basic fig is completed so i was just curious what everyone's impression was of it:

    You do need to take a look at those plastic parts and try to get rid of the mould lines. There are some on the axe (as doomthought said) but also the armoured shoulder pad, the pistol and it's scope, and the belt pouches. It shouldn't take more than two minutes to get rid of these. You also need to do some work to the base. The green stuff work is pretty good, and I like the fact you've used the Kislev guy for the torso.

    I think he looks crazy. The look really suits him IMO. An old, grizzled veteran who refuses to duck, but stands bravely in the face of enemy fire, calmly downing the hated xenos/heretics with careful shots from his plasma pistol. The look on his face looks as if he is singing an Imperial Hymn as he slays his foes

    I think this guy is going to look great when painted up. Post some pics when he is finished, I would like to see how he turns out.

    Cheers,
    Rich.

    Both of your points are well taken. The plastic parts will indeed get cleaned up and I plan to do urban rubble on the bases.

    I was just happy with the general fit and pose after first doing basic assembling on him and wanted to get a few opinions on the overall concept and pose.

    I know many men in real life who's "top half" is too big for their "bottom half"...

    Big barrel chest/spare tire gut and bow legs is sadly not all that uncommon my friend...
