Conversion Showoff!
« on: February 09, 2006, 12:15:00 PM »
Conversion Showoff!
Here's a chance to show your creative conversions for both Warzone and Chronopia.  There are no prizes but a chance to show your work, and spur others on the forum to try new things and improve their skills.  This event will feature more latitude in that you can convert/sculpt using any model, so long as it is based on a RECOGNIZABLE  EE product (scratchbuilding is ok too).   The idea is to create new troops, fill in a model that hasn't been produced yet, or make changes to existing models/troops. The conversions can be small such as repositioning an arm or adding a new weapon to rebuilding the entire model. The model should also be painted.

In progress pics so that other can see how you've done it is also appreciated.

You may enter as many times as you want. The idea is to encourage new ideas after all.

All pics should be posted to the appropriate Chronopia/Warzone painting section on the forum, by March 15th.  The moderators will either create a poll so we can vote for favorites, or judge them.  Winners will receive bragging rights, and will obviously have a cool model to field whenever they want.

Remember to follow all safety instructions and don't jam the pin vice into your thumb, or get superglue in your eyes.  Also be careful with the hobby knives.  I've made too many blood sacrifices to the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter myself.  Now get busy.
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

Is it ok if I superglue my eyes for my own personal amusement?

Most everyone on this forum knows I'm not the swiftest cat, even on a good day; whatever modelling disaster can strike has hit me--I've done it all.  The drill in the finger, the hobby knife cut so deep my first coat of primer is blood, and yes, don't rub your eyes by accident, after handling superglue.

Doing it on purpose is your own business, and I'm the last person to deny you your own masochistic pleasure.  Cheers.

Let's not hear about your stains, okay?   ;)

So what are all of you planning to do?

I'm going to do a Elite Trooper Decurion based on the Trooper Medic. Just a weapon swap to start with and maybe a head swap as well.

Cuttin the mini's apart is the easy step

gettin them back together and not lookin frankenstiened is the hard part.
