Usual Suspects (4)

There was a question on the Crooked Dice forum about the relative size of Offensive Miniatures SWAT figures.

Usual Suspects (3)

More pictures of unfinished figures for size comparison purposes.

Over on the Crooked Dice forum, there is always interest in comparing the size and proportions of figures from different manufacturers.

In this case, the comparison is between the Warmacre No Go Zone police and a number of Crooked Dice figures.

Deathguard Lord (part 2)

Continuing with the conversion of the Warhammer Nurgle Champion to a 40K Deathguard Lord.

I cut the back pack mounting structure off a Spacemarine torso and pinned (the white mark is the plastic rod) and glued it to the back of the figure.
This was then blended in with some Green Stuff. The fit of the pistol holster was also improved.

The backpack had the vents drilled out and short pieces of plastic tube glued in to represent the structural failure of the more usual grill. As mentioned previously, the right hand tube was cut off and rotated. Brass wire was added to holes drilled in top surface and then a piece of plastic card added to indicate a panel had 'popped' and spilled cables. Holes were drilled in Nurgley patterns of three and finally a horn from the Terminator Lord kit was added to the skull on the back pack.
The figure has now been under coated and initial base colour applied.

Hopefully this will be finished by Christmas...

I make haste slowly...

First up, Crooked Dice's recently released Lady Winterly in all her sinister glory.
Clutching her magical talisman, she unleashes the horror of the Corn Dolls upon her foes.

Next up, Impossible Agent Martin Coach. With his specialism in disguise, he can infiltrate into the villain's volcano lair. Another example of Crooked Dice's Man From 3000 body, with the badge removed, and one of the heads from the Scientists.
The following is an Offensive Miniatures Hostage Taker. Armed with a machine pistol and revolutionary zeal, she is taking prisoners. Who knows what she has in that sports bag? Probably not a towel.
