Had some spare GS left over from working on "Little Lost Boy" my Penal Legion Ogryn (check my other thread) so I decided to put it to good use:

Tabards for a VV squad:



Removed UM symbols on a TDA Serg:



and sculpting his ass:

Hmm. The Termi squad looks great, as usual, but I can't help but notice there's relatively little difference between the red elsewhere and the red of the eyes--any chance you could stick a red ink or something on the eyes to make them seem more like glass/glowing/whatever? Maybe touch them with a tiny orange, yellow or white pip to make a reflection or something. Just an idle thought; they are, of course, your models to do with as you like.

Hey Mossy, oddly enough, they are inked and have an orange highlight. I guess the brown wash is taking them down too much. Next time I'll see what it looks like without it.

Been a while since I've done on anything on the Bronze Bulls, got a bit of a fatigue, anyway as a way of kick starting my interest and momentum for the project again I've started doing a little Ivanus Enkomi conversion.

Original mini looks like this (obviously):



I like the mini, it's actually one of the reasons I started Minotaurs but... and there is always a but... I'm a compulsive tinkerer who can't leave things alone. It's just a little pose changing, I'm not touching the details, they are fecking awesome. Also going to give him a jump pack and that means doing something about the cloak seeing it is attached to the backpack (really badly I might add). Might make it magnitised so I can switch to a back pack if need be though, we will see how we go.

So lets begin:



First thing is first, got to cut that weapon haft up:



So that I can do this:




That's right he will be holding the Crozus in one hand and the PF will be pointing somewhere... that necessitates this:



Zee removal of the pointing finger (which I was shitting myself all the way through), you can also see in some of those the beginings of the replacement finger made from plasti card. I've also repositioned the elbow, replacing the original with one from a SW sword arm.

Just waiting for the finger joints to dry solidly before I do some very careful cutting, it's so small I figured it'd be easier to do it once it was glued. Hopefully it turns out ok and I didn't just ruin an awesome mini!

Busy night between this and my Sanguinor conversion (see my other thread) both have some serious challenges. Anyway here is tonight's progress:

Basic finger jointy stuff:



Needed to shape the fingers a bit (and still do) but this is what he currently looks like:






As you can see I've added some bling to his jump pack and at the moment it's looking like he won't be having a cloak, it's too hard to add to the jump pack. Will magnitise the pack instead though so when I buy another Enkomi cloak (used this guys one on my Lamy Libby pictures are floating around somewhere) I can give him that if need be.

Time to crash now!

Can not WAIT to see that conversion completed. Looks friggin' awesome so far!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Looking good so far. I'm hoping you keep the length of the crozius because I think it's one of the best parts of Enkomi.

And as for capes, Edna Mode said it best.


Can you imagine how often he'd have to replace it if it were attached to his jump pack? It would get caught on takeoffs and landings, not to mention burned by the jump jets. He'd have a giant burned section all through the middle . . . like he was a flatulent Salamander.

The Crozus will be a little shorter I'm afraid, it'd be a bit of a stretch of my abilities to sculpt the handle that was under the PF. I was going to keep it in the PF hand and have a BP in the other hand... but despite the mini have one holstered on his hip.... he doesn't actually have one in the rules. Because that makes perfect sense.

That sums up my feelings toward the cap entirely! And because it'd make the painting of the mini hard if I was to sculpt a tattered cap on him I'm not going to bother, jump pack with no cape it is and when I get round to buying another one of his backpacks and capes then he will have one for when he doesn't need the JP.

I'll try and get some better pictures tomorrow but here he is, crozus arm is held on by blue tac, as his hand on the same arm (and the jump pack), makes life easier painting:





And you know... the base isn't complete either but yeah.
