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.

      Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.


      It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
      These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.

      I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.


      I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
      Ideas are welcome!
      Thanks for looking!

      I built a dispensor robot out of a reaper soda machine, a brain in a jar, a pair of goggles, a battery pack, and a pair of rat cyborg arms. 
       
      It'll get used for this is not a test eventually.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of my latest Gnoll, a converted Toghra the Gnoll Leader. The upper part is from 77235, Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The lower part of the mini is 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor. The spear head is the blade of 02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke and the staff is from 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. Here's the link to the conversion WIP if you'd like more information.

      My second project for Fealron marked off a few firsts: First magnetization, first mounted cavalry, first Pugh sculpt.
       



      Here you can see the 2mm magnets inserted strategically.

      This is how he sits mounted.  But, I wanted to keep it removable, thus the magnets.  I confirmed it would stay in place upside-down!


       
      A sharpened paper clip acting as the scaffold for the horn.  I also sharpened the lance tip.  It comes cylindrical out of the blister.
       

       
      Green putty to make the horn and cover/reinforce the magnets.
       
       

       
      White brush on primer, Black on the base.  
      I tried a little experiment with the base coat to give the bone a more orange look:  1:1 Ruddy Flesh:Desert Stone.  It may become my go-to for bone work.

      I finished another mini this week and hope you like him: Elladan Elven Ranger. His weapons were a bit bendy, so I replaced them. I also repositioned his arm.
       
      I like how the cloak turned out, the face could be smoother, but his cheek bones seemed to be quite pronounced, so I went for more contrast and impact from a gaming distance.
       

       
      I also got around taking a scenic shot. I still think my Smartphone can't replace a proper camera, but for now it must suffice.
