You wanted him BIGGER??? :blink:

Well...yes.  ::P:

 

I wanted him to fall more in line with the height of the other big Bones demons and the proportions of arm length vs leg length were bothering me.  Also, this is my favorite of the Bones demons and I wanted him to be more impressive.  Don't get me wrong, I think the miniature is just fine as made but I just wanted more presence when he hits the table.  Also, this makes him a better size for use as a greater daemon in 40K if I feel inclined to use him for that.

Cool biggerized conversion!

I think the idea of lengthening the mace is a good one.

 

Please continue to resist the Hellboy hand idea, though.

The question with the mace is just make it long enough to be two handed or go full polearm length.  Probably going with two handed, so say three times longer than it is given that currently it's pretty short.

Went longer than I intended but may keep it this length anyway.  Need to decide what to do at bottom, might sharpen it to a spike. 

Material used:  carbon fiber tube with an aluminum rod inside it.

Ok, found a spike for the bottom.  Now just have to let it sit for a day or two to decide if I like the length or if I break out the hacksaw and take half an inch or so out of the length.

I would leave the length... it looks like it fits him and gives him that extra reach to thump his minions when he needs to!

I would cut some off, mainly to make the weapon more usable. If it is more like a staff, then it works, but if it is supposed to be a mace I would shorten it, so that the demon can swing it properly.

 

That said, this is an inspired conversion and I really like what you did with the legs. Adding wings and a tail is an excellent idea and I think making the horns more impressive would add even more awesomeness to the miniature.

Ermagerd!  He did some work on it!  Ok, so not much.  I did find some 80mm 'deep dish' bases so I glued him into that and am slowly building on it with greenstuff.  Also ripped the spike off the mace and am contemplating what to use as a but cap instead.  Probably find a bead.  Pics aren't best quality but I couldn't be bothered to dig out everything for a pretty minor update.

      then after a chirurgical action ;
       

       
       
      Cheers

      Nearly finished with this mini, a male necromancer that I have converted to a female with a head swap. The mini is like a fishing weight, really heavy, and the flow of the robes and skirts in my view helps this look OK as a gender swap. Also, the original Callus mini has a long sculpted pony tail which would have been hard to file off but was easy to connect to. 
       
      I have no idea how I got a large hard to disguise paint blot on the scroll...

      I constructed this in the 2018 Bones Mash-up at Reapercon.  The wings do not go with the body, and one of the arms is not original.  I forget what the weapon was but I cut it off the bone handle and added a wicked looking blade from my bits box.  He was kind of boring all in grey and white, so I added a dab of blood, and put some orange into his bat wings.   He's on a Secret Weapon base that has added sand to fill in weird gaps.

      Converted this one by using an avatars of war pit fighter body and added some greenskins bits (sword, head, etc) and greenstuff. Painted him to be used as an orc boss in my orc warband. Hope you like him!

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!
