This is a continuation of my conversion thread, my green stuff isn't that great but I am working on a mold per minus_T's instruction thread.
Not bad, not bad at all. The gun (heavy flamer, I assume?) looks a little bit clumsy compared to the body, but overall it's pretty nice.
I think my biggest suggestion is to try to get a bit more definition on the golden text areas. doing them in solid black then carefully drybrushing gold over them works wonderfully for me. alternately, a dark wash might fill in the recesses nicely and clean it up a bit.
I've gotta point out, though... As a Daemonhunter player, I get quite an uneasy feeling seeing my beloved GKT's turned over to the forces of Chaos... :cry:
very nice. Howd you carve out teh GK termie head?
youve inspired me!
ah, I'm happy i have at least 2 replies, I expected at least a few compared to my WIP thread but oh well.
The GK head was carved out exactly how you think, little by little hacking and slashing and drilling until the deed was done.
I like the model a lot However (might be due to picture quality), but the blue seems somewhat plain in tone. What kind of camera settings did you use for the pics?
But the model otherwise looks very good
Pretty good, a very nice shot at a pretty complex convertion...
In terms of paint, it's pretty good, a bit flat in places (the golds and the sword especially), but a very good start.
I'm assuming it's WIP because the Flamer really doesn't look like it's finished...
As a very quick 'fix' for the metallics, grab a dark brown (scorched brown) and water it down loads, until it's about the consistancy of a GW ink (you can tell if it's right when you dab some onto some tissue and it spreads like water). Then wash that over the golds, paying particular attention to the bottom of the panels, and the areas under bolts.
Then do the same with the silvers, but use a really dark blue, and do several layers, working down the sword blade (ie: first wash cover the whole blade; second wash the bottom half, third wash the bottom quarter etc etc).
This will make it look much better immediately
As for the convertion, I think the head looks a little high up, because of the way that GKTs are posed. If you can, try and bulk up the top of the back armour section, so the head is more set into it (have a look at how hunched regular Termies look).
Good stuff mate, and good luck with the icons

agree with Tom, it is very good, areas you can improve, other thsan the flamer which I assume is unfinished:
1. gold- wash as per tom or with chestnut ink wash
2. gold- you aapear to have a mould line on the outside of the helmet wings, bit late to do much about
3. blue- you have a nice soft colour but would be tempted to highlight further
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Pretty good, but lacking depth. Try using inks and thin watery layers working from the darkest colour to the lightest for highlights on edges
Keep the good work up
I'm one of those people that says "let the light of your surroundings make the depth for you" for the blues.
though i will go over the gold as it does look flaky, the silver on the sword is what I call RMM, Real Metal Metal. It's the miniature's base pewter polished up nice with steel wool.
I like the look of your Terminator. He looks very different from the model he used to be, and that is always important when turning goodies into baddies. I think though you should do a little more on the rear area and his back. At the moment from behind he looks a little too much like a purple Ultramarine.
Perhaps a few symbols painted on. Or some of those Thousands sons robes or a few scrolls. Only a little would be needed to make him more chaotic.
