The second one was even better! Gotta love models with one belt fed weapon in each hand  ;D Good work there!

Thanks for the compliment; as lame as it is by hobby standards (there are some stellar sculpters and converters out there) it was my most aggressive conversion so far.  Generating the belts from scratch was a challenge but I am pleased with the results.

just remember to send a sample (MK.II or a possible upcoming Mk.III) to the cloning vats for preservative purpose, of course--

 Thinking of using the Void miniatures 11414 Knight of Fury and 11416 Knight of Balance for Mishima characters.Here is a link to the site to see the miniatures.One of them has a Sniper Rifle on his back.

I remember seeing the knight figures in the past but don't know why it never occured to me to use them for Naganos-good call.  Ironic that WZ is pulling from Void when Void was meant to replace WZ.

I just finished converting a Dragoon rifleman to a Sniper Specialist - be brutally honest, I can take it. ;D

I modeled the rifle from the Bauhaus PSG-99 on page 226 - I think it came out pretty well. (Yeah, I know - I gotta work on the lighting.  I'll try to post better pics, soon)

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Dang - I may have to think about comissioning one of those and then selling one of my actual Dragoon Snipers to pay for it.

I blame you, Veez.  Were it not for your conversions, I would not be so inspired.  Thanks, man.
