The shield is actually a Justice leg armour segment, the wings are from Epyon's wings, and the headpeice is Justice's. Shoulder spikes are Tyranid Extended Carapce bits.

I was so sad when they discontinued the 1/175ths scale (or whatever it was that was a little smaller than 1/144ths). That was the perfect size for crisis suit kitbashes.

Deathscythe's not finised.

>> No.19735219

Forgot to say how I made him.

Well cut a targeting array in half and glued it to the front of his face. Then glued the two drone antennae to the lower sides to make the extension blend into the normal head. Made the mistake of cutting them BEFORE placing them


Then i lopped his right tit off like a fucking amazon to glue in half of a razor back targeter. Missile launcher is from a drop pod and cut his arm in half.

That was a real bitch but oddly enough the hardest part was cutting the razor back targeter in half. I have no idea why it took me 3 hours to saw through that thing but it did

Never did get around to finishing painting the rest of the small BFG fleet I bashed. Or the GorkaMorka gang + Trukk I made... or the BloodBowl Team...

It might be best to use it as a beast wrecked terrain piece right now. As for gun to fit in there, if you were hella rich id recommend the lascannon on the fortress of redemption. The ball turret might be a perfect fit and if you cut off the tip of the lascannon it looks like a giant smoothbore

>> No.19736023


Maybe use the artillery turret from ramshackle games? The turret by itself costs £8 so it is not exactly cheap but it could look cool.

Demolisher Cannon from somewhere? Could tilt it upwards to look more like a mortar, and it seems to have a similar size to the pics I see.

This is a story of perhaps my most favorite break-in ever (when I wasn't even a rogue) and the most hilarious escape that followed.

Possibly a TL;DR but you're TG and I know you're better then that.

>Playing in a Pirate themed campaign. Our captain is a dwarven rabble-rouser (half-fighter/half-rogue) named Grimnir Goldcrest (motherfucker had a blond mohawk) and we had a samurai-cleric (she was weird with that)
>I Roll up a Level 4 Knight devoted to Hextor.
>Wield a great hammer in both hands because fuck class bonuses
>Name: 'Cannon-Ball' Fritz. I hit shit like a mack-truck going eighty.
>Is the right-hand man to the captain. His word is my law.
>We here tales of a crazed man imprisoned talking about an 'island of gold'
>You bet your ass we're interested.
>Sneak in, talk to the man, who rambles incoherently, but has fits of sudden intelligence. He tells us the guards took a map he made.
>We search for the city-guards evidence chamber. Turns out it is a separate building.
>Its a big brick of with one ONE door (locked) and ONE window (light emitting from it).
>DM gave us all one magical item to start off the campaign. I was given wicked looking claw gloves that helped me climb. Our samurai/Cleric was given a robe of bones (Why mention this now? Wait and see).
>Grimnir orders me to climb up, clear the place out and return to the boat, while he and the cleric go to distract any would-be guards.

>> No.19736110

Or the wider part of the Basilisk's gun barrel. Though, that may defeat the purpose since you'd have to get another piece of artillery to make this one.

>> No.19736156


You should certainly see if this will work, next time you play against someone who using an executioner or a punisher ask them if you could have a look at their unused turret, you may even have one since you have an imperial guard army.

Nice story, but I think you have the wrong thread.

On topic, I would kitbash everything I could to make my Catachans look awesome if I had the money. I probably will do as such to create some Regimental Advisers once I get the (conveniently still heavily discounted) battleforce sitting at my FLGS. Might do that in the next couple of weeks.
Hell, I've still got a bunch of Dark Eldar sprues still laying around, I could use some stuff off of those, too.

So I am thinking about making some WW1 imperial guardsmen, my basic idea is to use the torsos in my picture, victoria miniatures laser gun arms and her Brodie heads, not too sure what legs I should use .

>> No.19737753

How do you like that? It's just a proof of concept, so the painting isn't really top-notch and the photos is made with a phone, but you should get the general idea. It's made entirely from Cadian plastics with a Westwind head, and it's my first use of plasticard ever. The pouches are from SM Tactical kit.

I just finished mashing together some Bloodletter and Tyranid bits to make xenomorphs with guns for a non-40k sci-fi game.

Also, took some Westwind jet troopers, cut up the hands, cut up some rifles from Defiance Games marines, cut up some SAW barrels, greenstuff'd some rifle stocks, and made some stealthy jet troops with silenced rifles.

Also used Mantic marauders with VOID plastics to make not-quite-orky soldiers with heavy rifles and riot shields. Going to turn them into dog-soldier aliens like the guys from the 5th Element.

Feels good man. I'll post up some pictures of it all when I'm done painting the armies.
