On the way
Right this guy has just taken a big jump forward. Now has his pith helmet pretty much sorted, and I've rebuilt the stomach (using the buckle from the old gut plate thing for his belt), sorted the boots and smoothed out his backside!.
Quite happy with the kit bashed ripper gun. The constituent parts are: one grenade launcher (for end of barrell and ammo-drum), one IG missile launcher (for main body), one SM old style bolter (for the part above the trigger), and part of an IG heavy weapon sheild (for the stock). Tried to fill in all the gaps with gs to make it look more solid.
Unless I get ideas for things to add all that's left really is to fill in the gaps where the arms and head have been joined (just assembled for the photoshoot!), and sort hit a base. Would like to do dogtags, but don't think my sculpting is up to it yet.
