Automaton conversion

Posted by jauria.minis on 18 Nov 2020, 02:23

Hi! I'm new here so nice to meet you all :-D . Here I post a project that I'm doing now. Is a pulp inspired automatons band for a variety of skirmish rulesets. I was inspired by the classic old looking pulp fiction. So here are the pictures! The post in the blog is in spanish, my native tongue, but you can guess by the pictures. If you have any question don't doubt asking me.



The main model for this conversion is an Italeri set 6012. From that I cut the head of my chosen model, and I replaced it with a part of the set sprues, one of the size we want.


After that I placed a piece of metal (from a paper clip) in the new head with a drill and fixed it to the body.


Once we have the model in this stage, we could add a couple of details. In this case the important one is the antenna of the head, which is a part of a bayonet from other's model rifle.


Other great addition to the model is a round piece on the elbows. Like a mechanical joint.
After the painting and adding a base (a button) the result look like this:


Hope you enjoyed! ;-)
