Stargrave hybrids

Regular readers of my blog will know I like creating hybrids from different plastic kits. Plastics are great for their ease of conversion. This time I've turned my attention to some Sci-Fi models. [caption id="attachment_71544" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Basic head swaps on Stargrave bodies.[/caption] I like the Stargrave background, which reminds me greatly of the Foundation series by Issac Asimov (which is now adapted to a TV series). I read the trilogy when I was a teenager (one book and a half in Fuerteventura of all places!) on a fortnight's holiday there. There was little to do but get sunburnt or read, and I burn easily... [caption id="attachment_71547" align="aligncenter" width="501"] Frotgrave cultists with different heads and 'grave weapons.[/caption] I started with a few simple head swaps (two heads in the first picture are Atlantic Irish and Warlord WW2 German). Then I experimented with Frostgrave Cultists, to create a gang of techno-scavvys. These scavengers have various heads from Oathmark, Frostgrave, Atlantic and one from Conquest. You can pretty much ensure every miniature looks unique with different combos. [caption id="attachment_71548" align="aligncenter" width="501"] Stargrave casualty. But does he have some loot on him?[/caption] Yes, I tried making some casualty miniatures by using the skeletal parts of the Cultists kits. I've also made some plague victims for Quarantine 37. I've also used the Snakemen to create a race of cool mercenaries, the H'rath. [caption id="attachment_71543" align="aligncenter" width="500"] H'rath mercenary versus two plague victims.[/caption] That's all for now - next time I have some Space Dwarves, some cowboy hybrids (using the Great Escape plastic cowboys) and some Frostgrave/D&D conversions. Yes, the converting goes both ways!
