I think our US cousins call it polishing a T%$D

 Here is the afore mentioned Turd on the left but the one on the right by todays standards is pretty dire i must admit.
 I'm really scraping the bottom of the bits box now but i do love a challange.
 Most proud of removing his head without distroying it, it's a nice sculpt just poorly positioned.
 Guard to the rescue and the main GS done on his lower legs and chest ( pretty poor job on the power cables sorry)
 Side by side
 My second most fave bit of this mini is the hair doo, is it Mel Gibson or Michel Dougles. 
 Back pack banner was already knackerd so i desided to cut it at an upward angle as if it had been hacked off by an upward cut from an enemy.

 Still need to bulk out his left hand a bit more and some small bumpson the back of his legs need doing.
 No helmet with the original so no helm with him, i'm planning his back story that he never wears one unless absolutley nessesery that's why he has the comms and the funky eye thingy over his right eye to keep updated on his squad.
Next up power axe guy and then melta gun guy but will have to splase out on some more donor bodys for them as i'm about at the end of the rubbish in the bits box and have plans for the rest of my stash so ebay it is then.
Comments are the life blood of blogging so even if its (nice doo ) or (stop my eyes are bleeding at the horror of 13 year old you's paint jobs)  it's always nice.


  1. Very well done! It's amazing what a difference that hair makes!

  2. Also, what kind of bits are you looking for? I might just have some of what you need. Email me through my profile; love this little project, would be happy to help if I can.

  3. With sonsoftaurus, I have some spare stuff I'm sure could add to this project. Especially if that axe wielding chap is next on the queue as he's my fav of the RT sculpts.

    Latest feller is cool. I like to think of his hair as more Snake Pliskin myself. :)

  4. This is a crazy crazy cool project. It's blowing my mind to see those RT style chaps looking soo good.

  5. Awesome work, man - that is beautiful!

  6. Thanks fellas glad you all like him. I'm looking for torsos and arms mainly and not any of the fancy ones as i'm sanding them back, just the scrapoings from the bottom of the bits box. I've some fancy bits that would save me no amount of time but that would defeat the object of the challange. Think ive got the lower leg resculpting down pat now :) i'll be in contact Sons and Dia. Thanks again lads

  7. Ah just realised your both in the US so not to worry about the bits it's a heck of a long way so i'll check out evilbay or stump up the cash for a combat squad asi need to start a Ghost Vipers squad after crimbo so maybe a couple of the retro nostalgia guys could join them.
    But thanks for the offers of bitys it'smuch appretiated.

    1. Don't be daft man. I wasn't asking for any payment. I have torso's galore and I'm sure at least 2 or 3 sets of arms spare. Let me know what you want and email me your postal address or po box so I can send them to you @ deadestdai@gmail.com
