As promised my entry. He's Arkon Stormrider from the SS1 Champions of Chaos box unfortunately he'd lost his head but the chaos gods decided that he should have a replacement in keeping with his barbarian heritage and Conan pretentions. So he has a replacement plastic head of more recent manufacture. I am tempted to try painting all his descendants now I see him finished.

Nice one dude. :) I wonder what is holding his sleeves on... or perhaps that's why he never lowers his hands!

My entry - a beastmen mutation conversion (based on an old John Blanche conversion as seen in 1989's 'Fantasy Miniatures' book., armed and ready for Necromunda / Kill team use

Claw was done with milliput / green stuff blend. Chaos familiar bust (a green stuff duplicate of an original metal familiar I made so as to not destroy the original) grafted onto the head, with a little putty sculpting to make it blend into the head. Gun / arm from a mid 90's metal Empire Freeguild weapon sprue.

Painting was a typical wet on wet blending job with lots of ink washes and fast brushwork. Metal was Vallejo liquid silver in combiantion with citadel retributor armour gold.

Finally a nice thick coat of gloss varnish from Halfords (petrol resistant universal lacquer) for that authentic early Blanche look!

Mr Blanche you’ve outdone yourself (no need to hide behind a nom de guerre).

But seriously that is a very awesome tribute

Love him! Is that a metal or finecast re-release? I've been eyeing up the finecast 'armour through the ages' set that's currently available. The only thing that puts me off is the weapons they provide (which are current weapons rather than the weapons/arms from the original era)

Oh, interesting.

I’ll have to look at that set, other arms/weapons could vary the look if I want to do more.

But no, this one’s metal.
