I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops.

 

The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar.

Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head.

With new head (from GW Wood Elves).

These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off.

The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt.

These guys have some extra equipment added.

One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper.

That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.

All the more reason for them to fight harder; now they have something to live for!

 

Thanks, everyone. I did a little more work last night, but nothing terribly picture worthy. We'll see what happens today/this evening.

Thank you; sorry to keep you waiting so long. Here is the rest of the squad finished. (Well, the conversions are done, I'm working on paint as we speak)

 

The sniper. I added some detail to his helmet where the gun was attached previously, and fixed the gap in his arm with some greens stuff.

Head swap; I used an old GW Necromunda head that has been in my bits box for a while now.

Another head swap; this time with an old GW Dark Eldar head. I cut off the top knot, and added a spec ops type headset from green stuff.

Headset from the other side.

Special weapons trooper; she was given a grenade launcher made from a gun barrel and random gun handle, again from the bits box.

These guys got some extra pouches on their backsides, and had their heads turned.

This is what those guys looked like originally (no conversions here).

Sarge got a hand grenade and a properly bad-arse looking head, complete with stogie (both GW again)

Special weapon trooper, he got a grenade launcher added to the bottom of his weapon, and a little GS work to fix up a detail on his helmet that got damaged.

Special weapon trooper; this guy got a flame thrower added to his weapon. The flamer came from Wargames Factory Great Coat troops kit.

As of this writing, they're actually primed, and have some paint work on them. Pics of that in a while; I had to modify my original paint scheme for them. The first figure I did was waaaay too dark. Experimentation is in progress...

Thanks, Xherman!

 

Quick update to these guys; all of them at this level right now:

Yup, not much to look at right now, the clothing  and armor are basecoated. I still need to do his weapon, boots, gloves,straps, and other little details.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      A friend asked if I knew where to get hemets like these
       

       
      Anyone have ideas?

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      Here's a pair of robots I built to use for this is not a test. They are a mix of privateer press cyriss bodies, assorted gw, Mantic, reaper, and historical bits, and some wire. Was trying to play up the corrosion and damage in the paint.
