Title: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: KaptiDavy on March 23, 2015, 01:09:51 PM
Greetings from Hungary!

I've been lurking here for years but now I present some figures at last:)

First one is an arco-flagellant - the main idea came from wondering about why there are no shooty flagellants? So I thought about giving him a flamer (no sophisticated targeting needed), then the whole thing evolved into an idea where the same volatile fluid is sprayed from the flamer that pumps him up during action.

..um, err... I don't think I figured out how to attach that picture...

You put the photobucket page address into the IMG tags, not the image address:

If you look over to the right hand side of the page, there's a section called "Share links". You want either the one that says Direct, which you then put into IMG tags, or the one that says "IMG", which won't need them.

The image links always start with something like i1056, where as the page addresses start with s1056.

So, if you try quoting my post, you'll be able to see the correct formatting:
(http://i1056.photobucket.com/albums/t366/kaptidavy/IMG_0001_zpsjeq8zxi1.jpg)

Looks good to me - if I recall my roman Gladiators, with those small eyes and neck flange on the helmet, I'm guessing it started as a Secutor?
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: KaptiDavy on March 23, 2015, 04:44:59 PM
That's more like it, thank you!

Yes, it was a secutor... once

here's the backside, and a gunservitor

This guy's in dire need of a belt feed - any ideas that don't include sculpting?
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: Alyster Wick on March 24, 2015, 01:01:04 AM
Really nice work there. The Acro has some nice atmosphere with the parts source. I'm really loving the gun-toting individual as well. From his garb he looks more important that just a basic gun servitor, will be interested to hear the background on him.

As for the belt feed, it looks like you have access to plasticard, that could be useful. You could make blocks and connect them somehow, though this would be time consuming. You mentioned an aversion to GS, but it may be a lot easier than you think. Get a smooth surface and roll out a nice thick band of GS and flatten it to a few millimeters (however thick you want the belt at its widest). Give it 45-90 mins and come back. Cut the sides to give the band flat edges, then lay a ruler down next to what is left and press an exacto knife in lightly at uniform increments. Carefully peel the band up and mark the other side at the same intervals. Even at this stage the GS should glue decently well, so carefully (with rubber gloves if you have them) glue each end of the band onto the appropriate part of the mini. The exact joint may not look fantastic, but you'll get the bend of the GS band right and that's half the battle. Once it cures you can file down the sides to make the edges sharper and/or remove the whole thing and file the ends down to make a cleaner join.

I've never tried that method, but it's similar to other experiments I've done. Give it a try, the worst that happens is you learn a new lesson and have to get a little more GS on your next trip to the hobby store. I promise it'll be a valuable lesson in the end :)

Great conversions, but I particularly like like the gun toting servitor too. He looks super clunky which is awesome   ;D. An alternative belt feed could be a kids sized plastic bracket, that would be easy to pose. Otherwise I'm sure a plastic dreadnought would have something useful
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: KaptiDavy on March 24, 2015, 08:17:27 AM
Thanks for the suggestions - I've checked all versions of plastic dreadnought but it's all the same belt which is sadly too short, so I guess I'm stuck with my GS (let's give it a try!)

I'm not sure what You suggest here. He was a 54mm japanese pilot (with a handful of flowers originally) I found on ebay, and looked perfect for such a role:)

Now, I give you their boss:

Actually no background for these, as my ideas about figures and stories tend to surface separately - most of my fleshed out characters don't have a figure yet and vice versa

Brilliant conversions. That ringwraith has such a great pose.

That Ringwraith conversion is excellent! As are the twisting mechandrites and power axe. Great idea.
Is this a die-cast ringwraith from that lord of the rings magazine, or something else?

I don't know the exact source of the figure, but probably not the mag (if I recall its box clerly enough) - I found it on ebay, searching for "54mm"

That admech model is awesome. Great use of a characterful sculpt.

Servitors tend to be dressed in a very utilitarian manner, I just think that guys has more character in his clothing than a general servitor (though maybe his master likes it that way). His clothing is militaristic, but the lining of the coat looks fancier than I might expect for a mindless flesh-automaton. That said, all the harnesses do look appropriate for a heavy gun servitor. Whatever you choose to do with him, I really like the model!

Post by: KaptiDavy on March 30, 2015, 01:47:27 PM
Now, as my monodominant warband still needs some members to arrive, I'll stick to the mechanicus - next project will be a stealth force of two cybernetic soldiers and a hacker (how do they call these in the 41st millenium???)
What I'm after is a good iconography for the main guy's (the hacker) breastplate. My initial plan was to chop both an etched brass cogwheel and a SM servoskull (one half cyber) in two (embedded in each other), but it still needs something between the halves - maybe some lightning-type thing?
Any suggestions?
The concept is that they're not hardline, fully initiated mechanicus, but some guild earning it's knowledge from the main cult - probably members of some secret service, or laymen belonging also to a secret society that requires them to use those skills in different theaters
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik

After much tweaking with the aforementioned mechanicus icon, I came back to my monodominant warband... here's the main guy

Perfectly - it's a Pegaso knight's replica (1/32)
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: MarcoSkoll on April 09, 2015, 02:44:20 PM
If I might, I'd suggest a few more power cables, massive shoulderpads or other 40kish gubbins, as it's still a little "historic" to my eye, but it looks pretty good all the same. Eisenhorn's head is a bit of a surprise, given it's a heroic proportion part on a more scale-true miniature, but while it does give him a fairly slender look, but it works.

Oh, and I'd definitely cover up the Sigmarite emblem on the hammer head.
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: KaptiDavy on April 09, 2015, 02:59:26 PM
Well, he has some background, and he's not really fond of technology (the bionic arm was implanted against his will, heh), so no more gubbins, I'm afraid:)
And I really like the sigmarite hammerhead - the comet theme is not without precedence in 40K (Dark Heresy???)

But his crusader acolyte will be more massive, here are some WIP pics

Oh I do like the last too! Very nice use of historical minis. I have looked far and wide for economically priced knight helmets in 1/32 but have struggled, the best I could find was a pack on ebay for 8 helmets, which cost what a whole minis would cost.
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: KaptiDavy on April 10, 2015, 08:06:42 AM
Thanks!

The helmet is a leftover from the other guy (see the colour??), and the figure itself (well, the legs) came from here http://stores.ebay.co.uk/strong-seller?_rdc=1
Some cheap replicas from Russia (with love) - beware, most of them are single piece minis, but there are some real nice surprises if you look, and the scale is perfect.

Otherwise, you may try this: http://www.johnedenstudios.com/
There are tons of stuff not listed on the site, so ask if they have anything you have in mind, but some time ago I saw a medieval male head selection so it's worth a try.
These guys are a bit smaller though listed as 54mm, they are actually 1/35 scale, but helmets could work anyway.

I've always thought about making a "Bag Man" for Inquisitor as an NPC courier for robbing/making dead drops/deploying virus grenades, and this chap is pretty much the route I would've taken. Looks good. Where is the head from out of interest?

The mutant and the converted non-GW figures look good too. I like the cyclopean visor of the cybersoldier a lot.

So, summer's gone and I didn't have the time I wanted to work on my minis (and my left eye had to be operated slowing things even more), but now I' getting back to my table - first, for some small projects like these gribblies:

The first one is a tainted putto in desperate need of wings - if you have any idea what to choose, please let me know (DE scourge wings seem too big)

(https://i.imgur.com/godU61O.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/RgrDXBh.jpg)

The next one is kind of a daemonhost with a technological twist.... it's made of a drinking horn used for holding enemies' blood and an autosanguine is implanted in it - to filter the most wanted qualities of those enemies for later consumption - hence the khornate design

(https://i.imgur.com/dMO3epX.jpg)
(https://i.imgur.com/6UaPBli.jpg)

And a rather usual design for dessert:

I really really like the Putto, even as he is, but I'm not convinced by the daemon... It's more concept than execution. The servoskull is nice too!
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: Alyster Wick on September 23, 2015, 03:06:32 AM
Beautiful stuff, I'm a big fan of all of them. I'll agree w/ Dapper that the daemon looks a little off, but I don't think it's the design. The "arm" pieces seems to be jostling about haphazardly, maybe positioning them forward (as if ready to strike) would help? Right now it looks like it's plunging headlong forward clumsily.

For the putto, I've used the "zombie vulture" wings from the chaos spawn kit to make strange familiars before. They're great because they're just desiccated bone and give an otherworldly feel to flying creatures since they clearly shouldn't work from a physics perspective, yet somehow they do...

Oh, I see - it's the photos not the actual guy:) The arms are quite forward, almost like he's struggling to get to some prey - ironically the pose is most visible on the backside pic (because I took them from under the table)

It's more concept than execution.

And yeah, it's a very straightforward (partly improvised) kitbash - more so because it was made before I made up it's background

So thanks for the criticism and for mentioning those wings too - and I remember someone using the smaller wings from the vargheist box (which I'm bound to buy sometime), I just can't find the pics....

That looks fantastic. Really great use of parts. I love the Necron forearms attached to the tau gun on the right hand, very inventive. More shots of the backpack are a must. You really just kit-bashed the hell out of that thing. Where do you get skulls of that scale? I would love the name of your supplier. Also, what are you using as the base of the model?

Seriously great stuff. I may have to throw together all the spare mechanic bitz I have and see if I can come up with something similar :)

Post by: KaptiDavy on January 23, 2016, 09:22:09 AM
Thanks for the kind words!

I already named my suppliers in the relevant topic some months ago... check them out!

As for the parts: the base is the groin of a not too big tau battlesuit (sorry, those names escape me), and the skulls are from the Fortress of redemption kit (careful, they can be quite expensive)
The backpack itself is made of an ork jump pack, a SM centurion breacher and a tau flamer - oh and some vials from the talos kit (which is a must in this scale!)

Now, I have some exorcisions to do....

Really impressed with you you have constructed a very imposing and completely 41st-millennium appropriate character from a pile of unrelated plastic bits. I wouldn't have the vision to bring together such a smorgasbord of bits.

And a question before going back to the workbench: should I put something under his foot, or keep him leaping?
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: RobSkib on February 03, 2016, 02:41:59 PM
I think the back leg and foot needs more work to make it look like he's leaping, and I fear it would take some hacksawing. Still, if you're game, I think it would be very effective!

As it is though, he needs grounding or lifting, it's in an awkward half-stage currently. He's a biiiig dude, which makes him even scarier if he's able to move around quickly like that! Perhaps some sort of grav-chute or jump pack would be appropriate?

I love the combination of parts though - I've been looking for a suitable combination to go with my own ogryn carapace armour I've got kicking around. I might have a spare pair of Tyrus' legs to go with it...
Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: KaptiDavy on February 03, 2016, 03:13:08 PM
So... You mean the left leg could come a bit backwards, and the knee a bit up? I hated the original build enough (glueing it in this pose was a mess), but I might try again, thanks

That group is delightfully eclectic! I will say you have taken the concept about as far as it will go though. Will this group be NPC ruffians? They look like they'd be great bad guys for a scenario, chasing the players around the board, causing them to make daring leaps to escape the motorized mayhem.

Those are some great conversions you got there! I especially love the gun seevitor. The combination of the goofy belly and the huge gun, backpack and get glasses looks very creepy. The glasses look al little offset to the left in your first picture but that might be the angle. Keep us updated!

Yep, conversionitis.... aches a little sometimes, but I have other reasons tooo
These are older minis that got finished these days - turn the page for some close-ups (they're there somewhere)

So.. back with the next batch - this time I finished the paladin!
After several failed attempts and finding this shield from the Imperial Knight kit, I discarded the idea of a plasticard =][=... I cannibalized a ravenwing sprue instead

I also finished this fine gentleman here:

to round out another warband

They all look great mate but the dude with the sword and shield is absolutely epic. Great stuff!

Looking good, I like it! I like how you've been pretty redundant about "grimdarkening" the base models on the left and middle character. Were it one model alone, I think it would look to medieval, but as a warband it works very well: the models all look very puritan and no-nonsense to me. The only thing that looks a little odd to me are the proportions on the middle character: his arms and legs look fine length-wise, but he seems very thin and frail (hich might actually suit an older character: whether it will problematic in the end depends on how you paint him I guess). Like Borak I love the paladin, there's just something about the combination of the steel and chainmail armour with the psycannon that looks very cool.

Thanks! According to their story, they're from a quasi-medieval world, hence the looks - only the leader has some bionics (and he's not fond of it)
Scalewise I should've been more cautious, as Marco has already mentioned (a few pages back), but I planned him as an old man, so I steal that idea:)

... Has it gone yet?

I was about to complement you on your inspired use of an old heavy flamer, Kaptin.  But then I scrolled down and lost my soul to Chaos.  Wish I had your eye for kitbashing.

What's the base model for the fine gentleman with binox and rifle? All three of your monodominants are great pieces but he's my favourite; the over-shoulder aiming reticle just pips him past his boss for me.  My only criticism is that I think his bag straps could do with continuing over the chest aquila instead of running under it.

That figure came from an italian ebay seller, and I still don't have a clue about its origins - I'm glad I've grabbed it, as he obviously had only this one

Well, I pondered this for a while, but then I thought it must be some later addition to the plate, or a strap-on - and I didn't want to ruin that aquila :P

These guys look awesome mate. What parts did you use? Are you going to paint them up in the traditional Goliath scheme? Red and Hazard stripes?

Red and Hazard stripes?

Just like that, I promise  8)

They're made of dragon ogres and ogryns - well, most of them. Some arms are stolen from ogre kits, and the mohawks are from the river troll box. Weapons - of course - came from orks, and that hammer is made of different gubbins.
I'll put up some individual shots after the final touches of GS have set

Well, clearly you have been blessed by the kit-bash gods - superlative work sir!

I especially love the speed freak dudes on wheels, the use of a Talos torso is inspired, as are many of your mechanical kit-bashes. The chaos knight horse head as a hood ornament is terrific.
Is the group with the mohawks actually intended as a Goliath gang? Because I love it when characters from other games like Necromunda manage to sneak into =][= like that. Your eye for turning bits into something totally "other" than their original intent is incredible, like the mohawks coming from river trolls.

Also, where did you say those Cherubim were from? Malifaux was it?

You bet!

Just what I thought - I always loved the feel of the original necromunda gangs, and when I saw those dragon ogre bits nicely laid out in a bitz store, I had an idea... they were in the making for a year! The mohawks gave me quite a headache until I found those troll fins.

And yes, the babies are Malifaux terror tots - they scale perfectly (I tried one of them in the hands of my Eisenhorn, heh heh)

I've wanted to do Necromunda at 54mm scale for a while now (hence the redemptionists, pit slave etc). It'd be great if we all did a Necromunda gang each :D

They must be put upon hazard stripe bases as is only right and proper for necromunda models :)

Some how skipped this bit, 54mm Necromunda sounds great, I have a box of the technolog plastics that would work as orlocks....... :)

Is anyone interested in the helmeted figure of this composition:

I want only the beardyman, but communication with the seller is... difficult to say the least, so I figured I ask  ::)

I second Imgur. Photobucket is a complete fail now and Imgur seems to work fairly well. :) It's what I have moved too.

Title: Re: The Kaptins Konversion Klinik
Post by: mcjomar on October 19, 2017, 05:53:52 PM
maybe they noticed large amounts of users fleeing the site and reversed course?
Either way, I'll just stick to imgur for myself.
