Recitors out of Hussar (Pauldron or old style) Seargeants:


And a Ministry Executioner out of an old style Mystic:


all only primed atm, but they will get some color in the future....if I find the time ;-)

Those came out well-I can't wait to see them painted.

The Recitors were pretty easy Iīd say...

If you havre a good resource of old style Hussar Seargeants.....
My problem was that I only could lay hands on the Seargeant #2 with the opened visor and had to invent a possibility to let them at least look all a bit different.
Nr. one was to use one #1 Seargeant I had left and that left 3 minis to go looking all the same (what I personally dislike).
The holding of the weapon is still the same because itīs basically the same model with another head...
And through to the form of the model itīs very (very and more times..) hard to cut the weapons off and leave them whole to put them back in other positions, especially
with the old alloy they used for the casting of the minis. It was way harder than the new one and the models were cast much thicker.

So hereīs what I did to them with my little scalpell ( muuuaahahahahahah ;D, sounds a bit frankensteinish...)):

I cut off the spike of the helmet and smoothed it witrh a file.
For getting two with closed visors I cut one off of a model with an opened one, shortened the face of the mini and glued the visor back, so that I got a deformed head with a closed visor.
Further they had to get their cloaks and I decided to do 2 with hoods up and two with them down (naturally one opened and one closed visor of each ;-) and the problem with the deformed head was solved; got a drawn up hood).
I used milliput for the cloaks and went pretty easy. Just cut out roughly the form of a flattened piece of milliput and then formed a minicloak. I modelled it to the necks of the minis, stabilized them in their fold (coming out good and easy, because mlliput isnt deformable that easy and keeps the given form) with wettened pieces of rubber foam and voilá, after hardeneing the cloaks were ready.
Only had to choose which way they should fall while forming them.
After drying I used a roll of magic-sculpt to form the fur and punched it with the scalpel for the relief before drying.
All in all Iīd say 15 min. per model

The ministry Executioner was a bit more work.....

Filed away the parts on the back with the big Brotherhood symbol, drilled a hole through his hand, cut off half of his head and cut out the shoulders.
That was my "raw" working material.
The shoulderpads I got from a ducal HMG plastic mini.
The face is half of a ducal regularīs face.
The Axe is the shaft of a Q-tip and the head a sculpt from magic-sculpt filed thin.
The other parts of the cloak, the hood again formed from milliput.

Good job; having done the same type of conversion I know that it is a challenge!

and here the coloured Minictry Exec.

Only colored not coated, so the highlights come out a bit intense.

Being too cheap to buy one, and not having the time to search one I out, I decided to make a conversion of Valerie Duavl. I used an Etoiles Mortant trooper, cut off the Punisher sword, flipped the pommel around to the top of her fist, added a rod and put a knife blade on the end (old 40K piece, maybe?), and attached the muzzle-flash (available from Armorcast). I was happy with how the bodysuit and muzzle-flash effect painting turned out, but after looking at the photos, I think I'm going to go back and highlight the leather parts some more. Here are some pics:
