|The female Space Marine (center) is similar in height to a normal Space Marine (left), but is much more naturally proportioned. She is smaller than a Primaris scale Space Marine (right), however.|
Over the last few months, we have been working on creating some female Space Marines for 28’s most recent challenge, which has a deadline coming up at the end of the month. While Eric recently painted a Dark Angel for the competition, I have been working on converting one using an old plastic Rogue Trader Space Marine. Although the model was largely finished in the last post, I decided to spend some additional time fine tuning the conversion, including adding additional equipment and modifying her boltgun. With the conversion finally finished, I wanted to share some pictures before I begin the painting process!
|The female Space Marine is finally finished! Notice all of the additional gear she is now carrying, including a thigh holster.|
|I cut down the original boltgun to make it slightly smaller, which included making the magazine less broad.|
|Using a mixture of green stuff and apoxie sculpt, I sculpted a collar around her neck where a helmet would fasten.|
