He's great! Thanks

While I'm back on here, can anyone tell me the basis of the torso piece in this conversion please?

Buggered if I can figure it out. Used to have a great kit and sprue knowledge back in the day but there's too much for my brain to keep track of these days...

But that is a beautiful price of converting going on there and I want in!

It seems to be a front from the Venerable Dreadnought:

I've always loved that model as well, I wonder if it ever got painted..

I am new to all this but in terms of really capturing a theme and being unique these are by far the coolest Marines I have seen. Has a very 1960s sci-fi feel to it.

Sort of giving me some confidence to try and rearrange a few of my guys with diff parts, etc

oh ,yeah, tis isnt it!
you know i thought it was dreadnought based but when I looked online at that kit it showed another chestplate but ive forgotten that it has optional chestplates, but then ive never owned a venerable dn kit so, well, there it is!

thats a real nice comment!
i was trying to replicate the sci-fi aspect of the 70's and 80's stuff you'd see on books and album covers. which in turn was inspired by the 60's clean line aesthetic.
thats why i clear off most of the 'honorifica-clutter' off my marines to keep those clean and sharp lines that most of the primaris line shares with the original rt models. do please get on with some conversions and share them with us!
