OK, this is another blast from the past. Long ago, I had seen this piece of art (not sure who the artist is, but I am assuming that it does originate from Games Workshop).
I thought it would be very fun to make something that was a bit like it. This meant chopping up a solid metal Marneus Calgar figure... before I ever had a razor saw.
That certainly made this task more difficult! You can see where the extra GW bitz were added, as well as the brown stuff and plasticard/polystyrene tubing.
I seem to remember using an Ork Choppa blade to create the Nemesis Weapon. I forget where the Storm Bolter bit came from.
And the painted result. It was a very complex paint job, since everything was sculpted in place. Normally, many of these pieces would have been painted separately and then attached when complete.
Also, it weighed a ton! It was sitting there on the end of the dowel rod, with the pin almost bending under the weight.
Still, it was an interesting project. Believe it or not, I did 2 more conversions using solid metal Marneus minis. Guess I just didn't learn my lesson the first time!
