    I really dislike the sculpt for Eudoros, so I've decided to make a conversion.

    I want to keep the spirit of the originial: customized/armored myrmidon character, MK12, no helmet, etc.

    My current plan is to chop & bash a Spitfire Myrmidon + Diomedes, maybe adding some extra greenstuff armor along the way.

    I'm pretty familiar with Aleph/SP models, but not as much outside the faction; I wanted to check and see what other ideas/suggestions people might have.

    Thanks!

    You could try using the body from Achilles V1 if you want to give the impression of a more heavily armoured Myrmidion. Not sure what you'd do for the arms though, as the Myrmidion spitfire might look a bit odd - you might be able to re-use the MK12 from Diomedes

    I'd use either Patroclus or Achilles v1 as well.

    I‘ve seen this in a FB group: Dactyl Doctor Body, Posthuman Mk5 arms, male airborne ranger head.
    That looked really awesome and I am still considering doing this myself despite having the old model painted anyways

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, it's most appreciated. Just a few thoughts so far:

    Achilles v1: probably my favorite old-school sculpt, love the (hyper)dynamic pose. But it's just too iconic for me to use here.

    Patroclus: Same problem as Achilles.

    Perseus: I was really looking forward to this release, specifically for this project. Sadly they made it a dedicated super-jump sculpt.

    Shakti: I find the concept of a digital consciousness being essentially "without gender" and therefore uploading itself into male or female bodies at whim to be intriguing and very GitS-esque. Posthumans exemplify this. That said, it doesn't really fit with SP's Homeridae, especially based on what we know of Eudoros' character. (Yes I'm a lore nerd)

    Proxy mk5: The perfect x-visor/MK12 Agema, especially with that jacket, but he doesn't work for this. Too small and the pose just doesn't look right for a fireteam leader.

    Drakios: Definitely has potential, but lacks the Myrmidon aesthetic. (Also not sold as a single, so kinda expensive)

    I think I saw that one too, that was cool. I especially liked the head choice. $80 for a single unit though, ouch.

    Do you still have a link to the post? I'd like to see what it looked like

    Sorry I don’t. Your best bet would be to ask in the A.L.E.P.H. group

    Dactyl+Post Human Mk12+Airborn ranger. Just need to press mold one of my aleph swords to add to his hip.
