Gw old Dark Eldar to Skitarii

Hello again all,
Tried this out .I put leftover skitarii parts on old Dark Eldar.
Might as well put them to use.
A plus point is that they add females which Gw seem to have not made.
More work required.Most probably I will add front & back tabards and a backpack of some sort.
Some of them really fit the bill, like the female officer.
Thanks for your comments.

28mm Deamon Sculpt ( perhaps NSFW )

I decide to continue my 10 year old project .
A deamon in 28 mm.
The tentacles were originally meant to be coming out of its back , now I am going to make it an octopus like creature.
Now I am stuck

Would love to hear suggestions. Horns? Wings? More tentacles? Armour ? etc.

I know it doesn't win a beauty contest but it is still a wip.

Thanks for your comments.

GW Mechanicus

It was a good week & I had time to paint my Mechanicus.
Converted one dominus as I had 2.

Simple table top ready scheme.
Black undercoat
Gunmetal drybrush.
Warplock bronze on some detail.
Red cloak.
Ivory lines.
Wash with mix of agrax earthshade + burnt umber.
Went over with base colours, except gunmetal.
Glowing stuff made a mix of GW oxide + hexwraith glow + vallejo florescent yellow. Then some shades of blue.

Base done with a mix of red/brown dried paint + some ivory on a Talons crackle medium base. Very simple, quick  & effective way to do desert bases.

Simple sprue spider droid

Hello again all,
These beige sprues are from the first Killteam box terrain.
See the middle part of the sprue looks like a spider & with simple cuts & bends, it becomes one.
So ask your mates not too throw them away.
After this post I wouldn't be surprised to see them on Ebay also !!!

The grey ones are doable but require more work. Again simple sprue & half a BB ball.

Enjoy

Thanks for your comments. Z

Converting 1/76th Plastic kits to 18/20mm scifi.

Hello again all,
Here is my take on converting 1/76th Plastic kits to 18/20mm scifi.
I got  JB models 1/76th Saladin & 2 Saracens kits .

I my opinion these are small when compared to 18mm minis , though they are good for pure 15mm. I decided to make them bigger by sawing them in half & inserting plasticard strips. I also used card & sprue for the build. It does take serious thinking & measurements to get the pieces the right size but it is do able not impossible.

I realised that the original wheels are small so I decided to use larger ones .I had to use plastic sprues as axles.

The Apc's would looked good as Imperial Guard Taurox.
They do look nice packed with riding infantry. The problem would be whether to glue them or not  & use blue tack.
