New post, no filler.....
So I have been tinkering with the Mortar/Sniper conversions, and assembled one Lascannon team, plus re-converting my other two test models to have the same lasgun configuration I settled on. Waiting on the Brown Stuff to dry and I'll get some pics up.
I basically took the two Snipers and put the body of the Mortar into their hands to look like a stocky short patterned Missle Launcher. The two mortar guys are the loaders. The guy with his hands over his ears was a REAL pain in the ass. I didn't want both hands over his ears, and settled for placing one hand kinda shielding his face.
The Lascanon loader also was fun with his binoculars. I had to cut out the head carefully and replace it with the gasmask head I'm using. All of my loaders were given Lasguns, as none of them have them modeled on them. Basically just slapped them on their backs, after shortening the barrels to match the metal ones.
OK, finally some shots!!!
Just some Troops to start out with. I am still puzzling over how to do my Chimeras.
first off, an Infantry squad with Rocket Launcher. I am still working on a Melta gunner for the squad and two more regular troopers to make a full squad.
A second Rocket Launcher team for B squad
two Jr. Officers for my Platoons and a Plasma gunner for the command squad
and some Stormies/Grenadiers
Still a little bit to do (nothing like huge pics to bring out the errors!) like make the gray areas of the bases more concrete-like and other small details.
