And these. More pictures of them here: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=11644.45



Two rather extensive conversions of the 1/35 "fireball" Mak. This is the flying, rocketpack version and everything that wasn't needed was stripped from the models and holes were filled with greenstuff and useful bits and bobs (some old pression buttons were recycled). I decided to give this version flamethrowers (which allowed me to make use of the fueltanks for the rocketpack), using some leftover plastic bits from a GW catachan sentinel sprue. Some tubes were added to connect it to the fuel tanks. Since the long, humanlike arms didn't work for me after this conversion, the other arm was modified to, one receiving a chainsaw (useful in the jungle, no dount) from the same sentinel sprue and the other a circular saw from a clicky mechwarrior mini (these are a great source for alternative weapon arms for your MaK's btw).

I forgot to post my conversion in here.
From the same model as white knight.

A couple of twin detectives to go with the zombie Tintin and Haddock



As before, I used Wargames Factory plastic zombies as dollies and sculpted on the detail I wanted/needed. The canes are from a paperclip (green version below).

They are great, more than great. Better than quite a few commercially available sculpts, you ought to take up freelance work.

You even went to the trouble to make their moustaches different in the correct way. That's devotion. I approve. Nice sculpting, WK.

I didn't think anyone has going to notice that.  8)

The Tintin stuff is awesome! That set of figures must make all the zombie lovers start drooling. Is there any non-zombie 28mm twin detective figures available on the market?

Not to my knowledge (and it is rather extensive  ;) ). Best bet is probably find a single figure that looks close and then buy two of it (Matakishi used the Amazon churchill figure I believe, with just a little conversionwork).

Another member of the Tintin zombie set: professor Calculus/Tournesol/Zonnebloem



The green (remembered to take a picture just before priming). Like the others, it's greenstuff over a WGF plastic zombie.

Well done. As someone who semi-regularly sees them up close I think you nailed it. The antlers might need to be painted a shade brighter, but that is just a minor quibble.

Christ lads I thought I was good when I managed to cut the head off a figure and swap it over without it looking like a bobble head :D you lot are too talented by far and I must pop round with the old thumbs screws to put a stop to it right now ;D

A great conversion, just one minor quibble, the antlers need bent down and forward so the tines stick up.
