With it being a little over a week into March, the deadline for the Iron Sleet Invitational is fast approaching. I have never put so much time into converting a group of three models, but I think it has been paying off. I am happy to announce that the last two models, Inquisitor Lucanus Molnár of the Ordo Machinum and Naval officer Nils Fernow, are finally finished! Rather than swamping you with too much text (which I am often prone to doing), I thought I would just show you some pictures of the models! As always comments and suggestions are welcome. I would be particularly interested in hearing peoples’ thoughts on color schemes, as I am gearing up to start painting them.
|While it was a long time coming, I am extremely pleased how Molnar turned out. I completely reposed the legs, and I think it went a long way.|
|Although I was worried that his outstretched hand would be too small, after some green stuff work, I think it works well. The hand being less bulky than a standard space marine one and his non-marine head really emphasize the sheer size of his armor.|
|When I first started working on his head, carving away the helmet, I never would have guessed it would have been so much work. Placing the ears was quite a chore.|
|I really like the Karl Franz head; with a little cutting, shaping his cheeks and adding scars, he really has a Man With No Name look.|
