Converted 1st edition Space hulk termies - 10 to 28mm
« on: September 27, 2021, 01:32:27 PM »
Hello again all ,
I had a number of 1st edition spacehulk termies  which i had no use for , so I decided to convert them.

I had to remove a lot of material on each so I was left with just the basic torso with no head, arms or legs.
Then I built an new torso & head using plastic sprue & milliput.

Then a press mould was made using reusable green stuff world blue rubber.

Mould was then filled with milliput & torso pressed into it. A bit of cleaning & filing then the arms & legs were done using sprue.

10 in all -  2 sgt, 2 heavy & 6 line troopers. 2 are to be shield bearers, though I haven't sussed out how to fit the shield & make it removable.
The centaur like heavy support was done later as I had 1 torso left.

They can be used for anything from 10 to 28mm and I think it is a good way to make use of minis which have no use to the owner. As usual reduce, reuse  and above all recycle.

Can't wait to paint them up.... more pics on blog.
Enjoy.

Thanks for your comments.

Those are fantastic. Particularly the Centaur. That thing is a beast!

Also, I missed that you had test printed your designs. Those all look the business too! Well done, sir!

Thanks Cook., glad you like them  :D :D :D
The centaur is indeed larger though not by much. Would have liked to do another one but...... it's a one off...
I'll take a pic of it next to the others.
