    Puppetswar must have removed some products, I remember some "Egyptian robot" heads, yet unable to find them. Pity.

    Some Egypt heads are still there. Mainly Bast/cat heads but they are bringing older heads back in newer sculpts. There was a time where Roman, Cossack, Japanese, Norse & other varieties of heads were gone from the store only to reappear weeks or months later. I'm waiting to see if they bring back the Native American heads they used to have but I'm confidant that nearly all the older sculpts will be replaced. If Puppetswar were going to ditch the Eygpt themed heads then why keep Bast? Aunbis (jackal), Sobek (croc), Horus (hawk) & the other gods should return in the future. It will just take some patience in waiting for them to reappear.

    Yeah, because this or this (pictures appear if you click there), or this seem OoP.
    Big archive, just click and click and click, until you reach the ooooooold pages. Newest are modern or space knights / orcs, mostly. Edit: bored, so clicked, and hit the interesting zone (that and next older 2 pages). Birds, Insects, Observers...
    Maybe you can ask them and see if they have plans to bring back some soon.

    Karakuri Project conversions

    Thought I’d share these gals here.
    I was never a fan of the studio models as they just don't seem creepy or sexy enough for what they are supposed to be. Being a GITS fan I wanted to pay homage to the creepy dolls in Innocence as well as the Geishas in the Live Action Movie with their soulless faces. I converted the models using Hong Kong Killer Fembots by Statuesque Miniatures, heads from Hanako by Hasslefree Miniatures, and guns from the Infinity range, plus a bit of greenstuff for good measure.

    Those are wild, Archangeleong.

    I wasn't sold on the bare metal photo but the paintjob really sells it. Well done.

    As a follow up, here she is painted:

    I think I'm going to pull the beret off and just have her bare-headed, as it's a bit much and makes her look like a Funko-Pop doll next to other models.

    That's exactly the kind of stuff I was hoping for, shame they're OOP. I'd guess they've just followed the money and there wasn't a huge interest in this kind of stuff 7 years ago but with the increasing popularity of Infinity and other cyberpunk & anime stuff the time might be right to bring it back.

    I'll contact them and see what they say.

    @Smiler You might want to check Nakamura's Tower miniatures. They have very nice cyberpunk designs although they don't sell heads separately. Also if you browse this thread, someone was making awesome helmets conversions inspired by Deus Ex based on USAriadna models if I recall.

    Finally got around to finishing some conversion that had been sitting on my bench. The Karakuri for my Ikari army, Tank Hunter missile launcher for my TAK, and Riot Grrl with spitfire for @WiseKensai .

    @TheDiceAbide I want that Karakuri...that is just awesome! I cannot like it enough!

    Also the work on the others is pretty good. Always preferred the older Nomad spitfire over the current one

    Nice mate, I ran out of ideas for a mentor, this looks great.

    Also the radar dish on your M drone is good.

    I changed the SMG design, so updated the malignos.

    Soo, since there's no proper Brawler Spec-Ops around I had the idea to "sacrifice" the Doctor (no one but druze really need that one) from the Brawler box. Together with some scavenged Rifles / Pistols I was able to create the Shock Marksman Rifle + Chain Colt load out:

    That's the SMR:

    Finally got my Frontoviks in. Saved an extra guy from the Beyond kit to do some arm swaps. 20190507_162753.jpg 20190507_162740.jpg 20190507_162813.jpg

    Also been working on a Tarik conversion

    Tankhunter arm swap with spetsnaz

    Unfortunately Rex will probably mostly be relagated to scenery and objective duties.
