    I changed one of the Alguacil-briscards, added the AN-PEQ to the side of the SL8, and reposed the arms to eliminate the cant and scope-to-ear aiming.

    Allrighty, hardly a conversion, but...

    I guess the Murabid Touareg Sniper is the least popular/useful model in the current Haqq / RTF starter box. She fights for that position with Zhayedan Rifleman, but IMO wins in troves.
    Why, would you ask, would I then want a 2nd copy of her?

    Well... I had this idea:
    [​IMG]

    Yup, just cut off the silencer, and reduced the scope into a red dot / reflex sight.

    As there is no Touareg basic Rifle model, she will do.
    ...plus, she was cheap. In the batch of second-hand models from one of our local players, she was about half the price of the Zhayedan. And since he wasn't expensive either (speaks something about how valuable was consdiered to be), I took both of them.

    I have so many conversions i have planned: Danavas into Ryuken SMG, old Haramaki into Domaru, Haramaki ML into Tanko ML, old Dakini into Karakuri... heres a couple others im working on.

    Saito is simple, replaced the pistol with the right hand of the new oniwaban.

    Dismounted Kuroshi is.. more involved. A lot of pinning so far, also replaced the right hand with Saito's that I'd just removed. I feel like the proportions are a bit off, but we'll see how it looks after some green stuff.

    @SirGrumpyPants Nice conversions. I think that's the first attempt to make a dismounted Kuroshi I've seen. I'd consider cutting of and resculpting part of her buttock, shortening left hip a bit and reworking pelvis angles, otherwise disproportion of both legs is going to be distracting. It might be easier to use female aragato legs as a base for this conversion.

    @SirGrumpyPants Yep, that cheek should be "more filled" and the tight a bit cropped, as the leg is extended. And that is probably the reason you see something "a bit off", wrong point of rotation giving a longer leg but no change in volume distribution (front of tight could get a light flattening, or not, depends, some people keep a bump in front when standing).

    I am starting a new project. Combined Army Ramah Task Force. Essentially I have a Ramah Task Force list and will be converting to be Combined army themed and the use of Combined Army Remotes.

    Here is the first. The Ghulam Lieutenant.

    @theGricks Interesting idea. What made you conceive this in the first place?
    That is a very good use of a large barrel & the Speculo model.:+1:
    Great job on these conversions. I love it when people take other ip's and ship them into their hobby forces. Any chance we will see the Professor & the girls painted up someday?

    By the way, the Kuroshi rider turned maybe Asuka is coming along nicely. The bike is painted for the most part (might need some adjustment for the front lights), same with the rifly I'll put on her back. I need to reprime the pilot slightly but I'll get working on her tomorrow.

    I took an old Securitate and built a... I dunno what I built but I built it. I think it's a Feuerbach, but I can't spell it. [​IMG]

    That is a HUGE improvement over the original, I may need to borrow that idea for my Tigers and Liu Xing.

    Not quite, it's actually just part of a Nomad Boarding Shotgun duplicated with oyumaru and a cheap resin that I put paint in. It's kinda like the poundland equivalent of 3D printing because the resin is actually from there. Though the Oyumaru was off ebay, like £5 or something at the time, I dunno.

    Caz has threatened to buy a 3D printer but says he's going to learn Blender first. Current tally, much swearing and at least one fatality but it was a moth or a fly or something.

    I had a narrative idea stemming from the campaign Asteroid Blues. Convert a 300 point list into EI flavored ramah.

    You mean you had an Exrah infiltrator there?
