Because nothing surpasses Metal Gear when it comes to T.A.G.s
I'll need some confirmation on that statement.
The original Guijia TAG is highly inspired by the Guges Landmates of the Olympus PD.
The Squalo (original) looks like an upscaled Briareos from Appleseed.
The entire game owes much of its early inspiration from the works of Shirow Masamune (well, before it started taking *homages* (*cough*cough* french for "ripoff") of lame superhero tropes instead.)
superhero tropes PLUS the movie Troy :P
A little conversion of Veteran Kazak. Maybe you know this guy.
"He is a ghostly man. Most of the intelligence community doesn't believe he exists. The ones that do call him the Winter Veteran."
He started to appear from the Ariadna Separatist Wars to perform various nasty tasks surely.
According to rumors, USARF's UNKNOWN RANGER is looking for this guy.
It was fun.
Perhaps, I am going to make more heroes. (especially Captain America)
Thanks for watching. :D
There was no "Troy" movie. There was the classic film "300 Spartans" (which then inspired a comic and a grud-awful cinematic interpretation of it) but nothing after that. :p
I have an idea in mind regarding conversions for the beloved Libertos.
Mantic has a nice model:
Just remove the shoulder plates and the belt (put some 40k marine bitz like grenades on him) and put the gun in his right hand (zhencha epic pose). I just have no idea what to do with his left arm.
Any ideas? Or do you have a better model for the conversion?
Second question: What are your conversions for the new 12P SUPER BOUNTY HUNTER? I dont even know how the Akrylat Kanone looks like.
Are you still going for aquatic look?
Scuba harpoon gun, resting in the knee. Some tubes and pistol grip.
Pike pole (common in ships in some zones, to pick things). Just change the tip, or maybe add length too.
They have other useful models with reptilian or aquatic look, if you want to do more than one, maybe you should check them (to have more or to have multiple in same style).
Dozer has Akrylat, looks like Russian RPG 7, stick with cones in front.
I will do some arms swapping and concentrate on the SMG:
- new Chasseur with SMG + Knife from 6th Airborne Ranger Regiment miniature
- Midnight Sun Analyst with Pistol from the new Chasseur miniature
I will not do the Akrylat Kanone because I suck at sculpting :)
A shrouded with boarding shotgun (and my new love, dazers). Just a quick weapon mod using the spec-ops boarding shotgun.
My 2 KHD Malignos.
In my experience mad robot's heads might look a tad big on ariadna bodies. They're meant for gw guardsmen and their pretty large helmeted heads.
Like i stated before, they look just fine on my Neoterra Bolts. Perhaps a single set purchase might be required to see if they would work for you? $4.50 plus $3 shipping (regardless of order size) is not a steep price to experiment.
Have you got pics?
I don't recognize the left arm, where is it from? Also, did you have to fill in some on her back; I think she usually has a backpack and a spitfire.
I really was Struggling with what army I wanted to play, I fell in love with the look of Yu Jing but I wanted something that was a Sectorial , after briefly trying to make IA work, Dashat came out, and I fell in love, it was Yu Jing units, and some Haqq units!
I'm going to do conversions on every model to make them feel more "Yu Jing"
I've attached my first pic of my group, a bunch of custom "count as" Models.
Zanshi's are Ghulams
Celestial guards are Brawlers
Left To Right:
- Count as Saito Togan (contender)
- A Rui Shi with magnets so I can swap weapons
- A reposed Red Veil Zuyong (crouched) who will be my tinbot Harris
- Count as Valerya Gromoz (Kanren hacker)
- Count as McMurder ( a Yan Hao that will be heavily converted -- I gave him some "height" for games to get him to s6 -- for now)
- Count as Miranda Ashcroft (Dart with Bashi Bazouk's Sword arm instead of of the SMG)
- Bashi Bazouk with Zanshi Arm Swap (and holo echo markers)
- Zuyong HMG (for paint Scheme, in progress.)
What will come next is:
- x4 Bounty Hunters 2 with smg's and 2 with sniper rifles
- x2 "Frogmen" Libertos' // I'm thinking Zanshi's with oxygen tanks, maybe flippers
Also can't create a thread on this forum, I get a 403 forbidden, did I miss a rule somewhere?
It's her ordinary left arm :-)
It's a small hole in the back that can be filled with green stuff. I put a bit from a shrouded there. You could also work a bit on details if you want, but I think it's good enough without.
You should be able to create threads without any problems. Still the forum does act up from time to time so that would be the most possible reason behind your situation.
