Obliterater 2 and some more Dark Vengeance Conversions
So, I decided that I needed some green stuff for my land speeder conversion, so in a land of warped logic, I spent the whole day working on an obliterater so that I had two things to work on with the green stuff at the same time.
Only, I got so distracted that I never got to the green stuff, and I never got back to the landspeeder…
So, Obliterater number two started with an Assault on Black Reach (AoBR) terminator as well, but I wanted to change the dimensions a bit more with this one. Since it was painted, you can see the terminator bitz and the other bitz seperately in the pictures quite easily:
I split the terminator torso in half. I intend to keep the back vents showing in the final model, but I want it to look like it outgrew the original armour. Then I split up the legs instead of just going over them like the last one. I added a landspeeder typhoon missile launcher to the top.
Next I tackled the arm:
Split it up as well. I want to keep the hand, the connector and if I can, the cable tray as well: Then I got some old audio-visual wire from a spare cord that I didn’t need any more, cut it up and used it to connect the second typhoon launcher to the right arm:
Then for the gap filler, to which the head and the spikes (bamboo cooking skewers) are pushed into. I then modelled some muscle shapes onto the body and inserted some paperclip wire that will become tentacles soon:
Because I was on a roll, I then chopped the arms off my second Helbrute and added the Demon Prince bitz that I bought. I also left off the front plate with the mouth thing and the horns. At the moment the whole thing is blue-taked together so I can see how it feels. I’m reasonably happy with it so far:
