Thank you JoshInJapan.

Now this next model was more of an experiment...it came to me in a pile of Eldar scrap bits.


So I had to add a hand, a base, and the end of the Glaive.

I repaired it because I wanted to see how it would fit next to my classic metal if I wanted to be absolutely WYSIWYG. So repaired and painted.



Hand came from a ruined plastic Jetbike rider, Glaive blade was made from a plastic power sword.

Cheers,

CB

He looks the part, Cap. Though the original metal Dire Avengers Exarch is an all time classic and I’d be loath to replace him on the tabletop even for the sake of WYSIWYG. This guy is looking great though, I’d be tempted. Especially if I had put the work into getting him fixed up like this. Top job!

Not sure if this counts but I recently ‘rescued’ this fella from a decades long stint in my junk box. No weapons or base. Just a horribly wooden pose.

So I Chopped him to bits!

And reassembled him anew with a new weapon.

And with a considerable helping of the magic greenstuff.

And finally a long awaited paint job.


Then a. Bit more of a proper rescue; I decided to give these two old scaven a new lease of life in the world of Burrows & Badgers.

One was damaged and got fitted for a new crossbow before they liberally plastered in putty.

And paint for the final transformation into a new world.

I have a whole starter-set-worth of those plastic Lizardmen and Skinks. I have never really wanted to do anything with them, but your sweet conversion makes me want to pull them out of their box and see what I can do with them.

Now showing a classic Imperial Assasin!

Painting Total as of 11/23/2021: 101 plus an iron golem and five spider nests and all the obstacles for Dreadball Xtreme and four trapdoors and a cauldron and some teleport disks and three SF buildings and some resin barricades!

Continuing the old metal Necromunda theme. Another eBay pick-up:



It needed hands, a weapon, and a backpack (because the backpack was contributed to the Delaque Heavy on the previous page).

Damn! I honestly had to go back and forth between the before and after several times to recognize that it was even in the after picture. Admittedly, I was looking for a model dual wielding pistols and couldn't figure out why you said it needed new weapons.

You mad the model awesome and playable, but I do think the dual pistol weapons was a very cool conversion in it's own right. I imagine you would have been able to make it display worthy if you had a spare mercenary backpack to put on him instead.

On that note, if you ever find yourself in need of a some old Necromunda part like that, you can check with me. I recently picked up an old bits lot that included quite a lot of the old metal Necromunda backpacks and at least one Heavy Stubber, iirc. I have no idea which go to what gang without returning to the helpful folks in my identification help thread though. For now, I can only identify things as being from Necromunda or Gorkamorka due to their unique themes and the gangs by their clothing/style.

haha, was this 'just' very thick paint or did we already enter enamels territory here? Nice save in any case ^^

Whoa, nice save, Captain Brown. The repaint is almost unrecognizable.

Recently, I rescued this very old assassin from my teenaged self's rather slapdash painting skills:

Hey Josh, teenage You was way better than teenage me! Not to mention today’s Josh, sheesh, that’s a seriously smart paint job. Nice upgrade for an old classic.

CB, your flamer heavy is fantastic. Great job as always. Great save too, that fella was really caked.

Thanks guys.

Sargent Silver, you need to send me a photo of your old metal Necromunda stuff and I would be happy to identify them.

Very nice update Josh, I also wish I had the painting patience today 25 years ago.

MobileSuitRandom,

It looks like it was both…I was so glad it was not sealed, or it would have been a nightmare to strip.

I think most have been identified already by other helpful dakka users, but here's my identification help thread in case you see anything that isn't or something you need for a project: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/90/788116.page Most of the bitz there are up for sale or trade since I don't have any specific use for it myself.
