Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am working on trying to get my painting score higher, and one thing I did not have was a 'heavily' converted figure.
I decided to break apart (I know, I know: :nono: ) a crisis suit with the notion to make a new commander.
The stuff done to the model is as follows:
----Custom made missle/plama rifle in one
----Taller legs - both broken and repositioned
----Custom head made with a trimmed down marker drone, the original helmet, and a markerlight.
----extended arm - broken and reset
----custom jet-pack system- both cut and reset 'sideways' to give a more "jump-shoot-jump" style jet system.
----Custom mounting system through the foot to give a more flying presentation.
----Custom mounted multi-tracker into the chest of the suit
----Custom up-armor tiles from left over flamers
I am hoping this will constitute as a heavy conversion, or will I have to go further?
I am open for all suggestions and critiquing, I know about needing to putty up some areas, that is the next step.
Thank you for looking and for your opinions,
A couple people suggested a more slim-lined weapon system that was not so bulky. Looking over the missile/plasma rifle I had to agree.
I went through and made the missile system to effectively a 1 1/4 missile launcher. Here are a few pictures of the change.
Loving it, looks like a bumblebee. Maybe make a more robust jump system to make it look more like wings? depends on how much you wanna go in that direction though. By the way, the cut down weapon is a HUGE improvement.
Gareth is the person I try to impress when I convert and paint.
I like the cut down weapon and the repositioning of the arm. I have done that to a few of mine as well. The back is an interesting change. The head ... well I just am not feeling it Course seeing it 100% done can change that. The pose is also not quite right. Possibly because I know thats going to be a bugger to keep together. It looks like it's about to fall off the base. Speaking of bases, consider a decorative base with a fallen enemy underfoot. That tends to score points.
- Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.
give him a cape please o.o
