    I thought I may as well start up a thread where I can put up my SEF as they start to come together, I'm a huge fan of the old Shasvastii style, so I plan on converting up the original minis to match the new sectorial list. The theme behind them will be an SEF force deep in a Yu Jing mega city.

    First up is my Sphinx, 2 handing his rifle:

    A couple of seed soldiers that I've given hoods and arm swaps to be my shrouded:

    Sheskin thats been converted into a Speculo:

    And seeing as theres 0% chance of me being able to get an affordable Aida Swanson, heres my alternative:

    I'm enjoying making some nice bases for these guys:

    I have a conversion in mind for Victor Messer as well, so he'll be coming in the near future.

    Great job, I also love the old Shasvastii look and am planning to convert old minis to fit with the new profiles

    Very nice, I look forward to seeing more of this project.

    Is the base... Lunah?

    Sure is. Closest thing I could find to Swanson. Plus it's a pretty nice sculpt.

    I made a start on the practice colours for my first Shrouded, I'm happy with all of him except his skin, which I didn't blend as well as I would have liked. I just have his blade, back strings and base to do and he's done.

    And this is the list I'm working towards at the moment:

    I also undercoated my sphinx with an Army Painter white rattlecan, absolutely ruined it. It looks like a medium grit sandpaper.

    I now have to figure out how to strip it without ruining the greenstuff work.

    0/10 Army Painter spray, will not be using again.

    Ugh, sorry to hear that. I hate when primer goes bad like that. Hope you’re able to save the model - I really like the conversion you did.

    Yer I'm pretty disappointed, I tried painting over it a bit, but its so coarse on the surface that the paint doesn't flow over it, it bunches up and looks pretty bad. I've actually had issues with army painter primers before, where they've melted resin miniatures. I assumed they would have sorted the problems out.

    So I managed to reduce the coarseness of the sphinx a little and did a bit of shading on the worst area to trial it out.

    Its not too bad and when I add a few darker and lighter layers it might actually be ok.

    You can see how rough it came out though:

    Wow.

    If it goes totally bad, drop it in Simple Green. That will strip the paint without messing up your GS, though it will de-bond superglue.

    With it being an infiltration scheme you could always try a stippling effect and make it look like a particularly alien idea of camo.

    Couple of new little conversions. First up is my Caliban, made from the body of a Malignos, Cadmus head and Aswang arms, arms are blutacked on until I paint him up;

    20190428_145648.jpg 20190428_145703.jpg

    And my first Malignos with Aswang body and Gwailos arms;

    I finished up painting the first shrouded as well, but the forum isn't letting me upload pictures of it for some reason.

    Got them working, I still want to add some rubbish; old newspapers and takeaway cups to his base. But apart from that he's done.

    Yer nice idea, I pushed on and it came up alright, it looks like a pretty organic armour. I've done his right hand chest;

    Mentor kitbash, I pretty much just used leftover bits for him that I wasn't using for anything else.
