He's great! Thanks


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

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

@mcmattila
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!

@spoons71
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!

heavy done:

god this phone camera is so gak. its not doing the paintjob any favours at all. on this screen theres almost no colour definition of the variation of skintone, or anything really whatsoever... nevermind the lack of focus.

must dig that luminex out again for some real pics soon...

Great skintones across the scouts, let alone how much better those kitbashes look than the short, tired official scouts.

ALSO I'm still patiently waiting for you to drop that Shark Dread you've been working on

Whoops, I meant whatever you've been tinkering on that involves that ven dread bit. But also I'm excited for any dreadnoughts you might eventually get to

Ah. Alas I've not bought one of those or anything of anything much really. No job at present and not a priority purchase. So it's finish what I got at the min. :( However I've the second centurion converted up with some real cataphractii/tatauros vibes. The third is still WIP but is in a much more shooty pose; foot on a rock and assault cannon and chainfist loadout...
Also converted three scout bikers from the atalan jackals (my sis got them as a birthday pres back in June so that was great!) And some leftover palanites and scout bits I had...
Perhaps I'll take some WIP shots or save em till they're painted now...

Just gave this blog a quick scroll through. You've done some fantastic work! I'm excited to see your take on terminator armor if you ever manage to get the parts you need. And looking forward to seeing those scout bikes

Terrific Scout Bikes. Did you also use palantite enforcer's for the bodies?

these scout bikers are superb! These have a great feel of movement to them. Kudos!

Are scouts with meltaguns a viable wargear choice btw? Never knew that

Thanks guys. Yeah palanites Just like my regular scouts. Just a bleeding cowson lot of work to get to gel together with the gsc arms and legs... Well the legs mostly... Utter cowson in truth hence the huge amount of kit but it doesn't look at odds with the other scouts I've done as they're pretty kitted out...

And , no scouts can't use meltaguns usually but meltas, plasmaguns, power swords and plasma pistols can be taken by wolfscouts. So should I want to use that second squad that's how I'd field it...

and the full squad:

so here is the first primaris battle-suit done:

I went in a different direction altogether on the back in the end, swapping the archaic looking chunky-dread-powerplant out for a sleeker looking tartaros backplate. these rear shots also show you how the legs were 'stilted' using the mining drill parts from the kit and how I've used reiver pads to not only cover the join, but to continue the armour around the heels and round-out the look of the legs more. like how it is on a redemtor dread or kastelan droid.
All in all, the added height along with the lack of cables and un-needed struts everywhere has led to a sleeker primaris-esque design that fits in rather well with the rest of the marines, the mk5 references adding to the continuity with the troops.

Definitely the best centurion conversion I've seen. He looks mean as hell.

thanks for the kind words guys.
its gee'd me up to get the second centurion done:

as you can see he's got elements of mk3 and cataphractii/tataros about him to really play up the 30k vibes.
the back shows where I used bits of gsc suit and a mk3 backpack to create a funky-tubey-venty bit not native to any specific armour but akin to it nonetheless...
the shoulders are also reinforced with ogryn pads for an overall chunkier feel.
oh and studs because. Studs!

Didn't expect to see the second so soon! Love the gravitas and solidity of the pair, and that they aren't identical. I don't care at all about the official Centurions, but you've really crushed the concept - twice now!

Love those centurions, you've made them look so much better than what GW have put out!

The scouts too, excellent work and feel like proper aspirants of the chapter.

Hot damn, a centurion model that isn't ugly as sin. Now that deserves a hats off alone, never mind they're also pleasingly menacing to look at. Well done.
