Scraping the bottom of the bits box

Retro rebuild part one.
that's the official title from now on btw.
Here's what i could dredge up from the bottom of the bits box to get started on this project. Some very old legs and a backpack from the dawn of time and a mordhiem head that floated to the top at just the right time. 

 The legs got a chop and some scalpel work to reposition them to make his centre of gravity lower, may have not done enough but will have to go with that.

 Mordhiemer with a now doo and goatee, may have a second attempt at his goatee when he gets attached to the torso.

 His helm sanded and green stuffed into a beacky helm to go at his waist.

 Legs re sculpted to make them two part retro style, his boots may get altered too in the final pose.

 The pauldron sanded down and studs added for that heresy look, undecided about sanding the other shoulder to match the original leave it with the edging.

Some better pic of the original mini I'm basing this on. That's a bolt pistol at his right hip, need to dig up an older version of that from the stash but it's my only one so may have a go at copying it.
Here you can see the helm and studded shoulder plus his imo quite groovy boots. In the final pose they will be a bit more bent as he swings that awesome chainsword. I have added the line down his lower leg armour that was a pain to do but worth it, just noticed the small oblong on there and will have to add that next session.

Hopefully i'll get the legs torso and head put together and have stated on his arms position and scratching the chainsword up.

That's it for now, feedback always welcome.

Oh i'll be at the Brampton model show on Sunday at the SFM:UK table so if any ones about pop by best just ad it's not in Brampton it's in St Ives Cambs. Use your Gooogle fu for full details.

  1. A good start! Will be interesting to see how you go about the super large chainsword with it's guard, etc.
