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.
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...
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.
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.
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!
