Sunday Update: Veteran Sergeant
Never one to be content with a couple of miniatures on the go, I was flicking through the Blood Angel codex and saw the pair of legs from the Death Company sprue that caused me so much tension six months ago. Upon closer inspection I saw that they were actually quite good, they had just been used and photographed poorly. The double handed Thunder Hammer also caught my eye and a cunning plan was born.
The above photo was taken mid-afternoon today, having just finished sculpting the right shoulder pad and adding studs to the left. As you can see I removed the thigh of the right leg and added a replacement after posing the lower part of the right leg on a rock. I scraped out the ornamental blood drops with a knife and replaced with greenstuff for effect.
I used the lower (bionic) arm from aforementioned two-handed Thunder Hammer to add to the guy's veteran status, attaching a chainsword blade.
Later in the day I added the stowed bolter (I'm a big believer in WYSIWYG and he needed something to shoot with!). I rolled out some greenstuff on foil and let it harden a little before adding it as a strap. The only thing missing is a clasp at either end of the bolter to hold it in place.
Elsewhere, paint had been added to Multimelta guy and the Chaplain is progressing slowly.
