Right, this is a quick image tutorial for the legs, which are the only real conversion when doing my Truescale Marines...


Cut at the thighs...


glue spacers to the groin end of the legs


put glue on the bases first, then the underside of the spacer, and stick it all together at once! You need to base him at the same time to make sure the pose is right.

Sometimes you can't replicate the pose in the original legs, the spacers muck that up somewhat, and if you try, they can look a bit derpy, so play around until you get something realistic. Then leave to dry.


This is an imgur album for a tutorial of my massive marines!

I did about 15 sets of legs in 2 hours this morning. It's easy when you know how! Just experiment with what works for you. The legs are the worst!

I think that post is a good one to keep in the back pocket for when I eventually do my deathwatch (he says a year after last mentioning the idea).
