I did it last night and thought to share with you. I'm quite satisfied with the result, maybe to add some prosthetics on arms and legs. Any suggestions?

I think that's great! I've never seen anyone attempt one before, but it looks just like the illustrations in the rulebook- you should be very proud! Very Happy

Will be keeping an eye on him to see how the paint job goes Smile

The arms on the GW model seem to have little bands on them. Maybe some soft wire or plastic card?

Thanks guys! Adding soft wire or plastic card is going to be tricky but I'll give it a try!

Veskit is stil work in progress... Here is my later attempt, Johann the Knife:






Still need to make him a cloak/cape, and a mask of course which will be a tricky part. Comments and critiques are more than welcome!

It's good to see that G.W's thoughtless chucking of their Fanatic mini led to such creative pieces. Both assassins look TERRIFIC! Since they are your creations, don't feel compelled to duplicate G.W's pieces...it's more the feel than the substance with character pieces. Keep up the SPLENDID WORK!   thumbsup

The upside down knives worry me. How do those knives stay sheathed? Other than that I love the number of knives you have assembled  thumbsup 

I seem to remember a flowing cape as part of an elf sprue that might work. Archers' sprue?

Thanks guys for the comments! Smile
Von Kurst you are right! I will turn them around. As for the cape, I thought to use one from the Skaven night runners sprue but your suggestion is better! I will try to get one.

There are also nice flowing capes in the empire pistoliers box. Are you planning on putting a mask on his face with GS?

I don't have green stuff! Sad I'll have to find alternate solution for it... But yes, without a mask it's not Johann! Smile

In the days before green stuff, I used to build my armor and such embellishments with paper. You might have a go with some nice paper and a sharp knife and an extra head or two to practice on. I would cut the desired shape out of the paper, fit it on the mini and then glue it on. Ought to work for a mask in a pinch.

Thanks Von Kurst, never thought of that. I have spare heads for practice and I'll give it a try.

At the end it turned like this:



I'm not quite satisfied, he doesn't have that sinister look, but considering the time and material that I used it's fine. If I ever come into possession of Green Stuff I'll redo the head. Please comment and criticize. Oh, and sorry for a crappy photo!

The lack of a sinister aspect might be made up for with your brushwork. The cape is perhaps a bit to straight out, stiff, but the positioning suggest rapid movement, so that should be okay. Otherwise the conversion looks TERRIFIC...GREAT WORK!   thumbsup
