    So, as I've already got both PanO and Nomads, collecting Foreign Company seems like a no-brainer. I've already got Senor Massacre, but need to buy the Soldiers of Fortune box for the others. And I like the Hannibal and Laxmee models, but Valkyrie I'm just not a fan of.

    That said, I'm really digging the artwork I'm seeing for her in Foreign Company and would like to convert her up. I haven't really got a sense yet, though, of how exactly to do that (with the exception of stealing either a Devil Dog or Blackjack Heavy Pistol to arm her with).

    There anyone else out there working up Valkyrie conversions they want to share?

    Emily has a similar vibe and the Chandra comes close.

    Think I would start with the new Joan of Arc 2.0 Body, use the 1.0 alternative head without open Hair and the Arms from the Bolt Paramedic (similar to the Patsy conversion)
    Weapon would be a bigger problem.

    I’ve got a plan using the new Patsy model hucking a grenade. Gonna replace her SMG with a heavy pistol and headswap from Statuesque. Since Valkyrie does have grenades I’m unsure if I want to swap her other hand to be carrying her handaxe or just leave it as-is.

    I was giving this some more thought yesterday and I noticed a mostly-unpainted Naga Sniper in my case, thinking about what a cool model it is. As I looked at it though, I wondered about how to handle the sniper rifle and her left hand resting on its barrel.

    As I was scrolling through some of RiotGrrl Painting's photos, though, I stumbled across this Naga Sniper that she had painted up in a Captain Marvel scheme.

    While she definitely doesn't have the Fusilier-style armor we see on Valkyrie in the artwork, the pose is FANTASTIC and makes me realize how good she'd look in bright blue and gold with blond hair.

    I'd be tempted to have her hand resting on a heavy shotgun like that, but frankly, I don't know what model I could scavenge a heavy shotgun from. That said, it'd be pretty trivial to do a left-hand hand swap with Desperado pointing the heavy pistol. (I mean, I'd LOVE to give her a Blackjack heavy pistol or Devil Dog heavy pistol even if they would be comically oversized, but without having to re-sculpt a hand holding it, I don't think I could pull that off.)

    I'm almost certain the Gencon exclusive mini will be Valk – the opportunity will be too great to pass up

    Van Zant has a left hand holding a heavy pistol and it looks pretty easy to chop off. That’s my plan, at least.

    VZ does have it in his right hand. Which if you're going to use it to replace the hand she's pointing with, then totally works. But I love her gesture with that hand and want to keep it.

    Durr, that’s what I meant. I’m chopping off her SMG toting right hand and replacing it with VZ’s heavy pistol.

    Rather a proxy than a conversion, but you might already own the morlocks.
    Just give her some blonde hair and she is ready to go!

    If you want to elaborate - use van Zants axe instead of that maul and his pistol for the other hand
    - though switching the hand from right to left might be a bit tricky.

    I'm just using the Aristeia! one until the official model is released. It's not amazing, but it does the job and it's easily recognizable

    I'm taking a different route and going for a different look entirely. My FC "Orcs" are all Mobile Brigada serving as proxies as it is, so my Valkyrie will be built from a spare Icestorm MB body and a Chandra's head (unless I can find another I like more!). I'm still on the hunt for a suitable axe to put in her offhand.

    Is it just me or does Valkyrie's hairstyle look like a mix of Mercy and Cybersix.

    I'm getting real Sergeant Callahan vibes from Valkyrie:
