Converting my 6th ed Beast of Chaos army into a 7th ed army lead me to adding a Battle Standard Bearer. Wanting something quick and inexpensive, I converted a Chaos Warrior body with Beastman arms, legs and head. Most of the work was done with side clippers & exacto – with the warrior cape covering up most of the damage to the knees. A small ball of putty supports the head, together with a few strokes of the sculpting tool to blend in the new neck. All told, I may have spent more time digging in my bitz box for parts than working on the figure.
Absolutely amazed by Testors Dull Coat, I’ve never had a spray sealer so completely kill the shine on figures before. The units I’m currently working on are dipped in wood stain, which leaves a heavy duty shine on the model. One coat of Testors returned the figures to a perfect dull finish (almost too perfect – a little bit of shine can help hide painting imperfections).
Picked up my can at the local Michael’s Arts and Crafts for about $4.50.
is a dead Space Wolf.
No need to go into the vile details, but I have no love of the Space Wolves. Here’s hoping for a good nerfing in their new codex.
The terrain piece is Armor Cast based on plastic card with a few Mordheim bits.
