Brother Christopher Posted September 25, 2022 Author Share Posted September 25, 2022 Thanks Master, these are some great tips! Redemptor Dreadnough Conversion - Photo Update #1 Progress is better than expected. The model is coming along... amazingly. Apologies for the brag, but I am surprised how well I was able to 'mould' the layers of plasticard to realise my vague ideas for the design so far. I am genuinely surprised by what I was able to do, especially before soiling everything with Milliput. I think I've put around 8-10 hours into altering the model's legs so far. What I'm happy with: - the way things fit together, despite the irregular shapes; - the extent to which I was able to adapt the design of the Leviathan Dreadnought's greaves to a Redemptor; - the shield-shaped knee pads; - the Maltese cross on the one side. What I messed up so far: - overspilt glue; my excuse is that the pieces are too small ;) I also expect that it won't be that evident once the model is primed and painted; - the inner bottom part of the front greaves that almost touches the 'toe'; I'd have liked more clearance there, but also couldn't achieve it while maintaining the more-or-less symmetrical design of armour; - applying and later sanding Milliput, but I hope that after I apply some paint, it'll all look better than in the photos, which --hopefully-- exaggerate everything due to magnification. What I'm worried about: - how the modified legs will go together with the tors, specifically if the entire model won't look top-heavy; that's the worst part with converting things 'on the go,' without being able to visualise it beforehand. As you can see, I also started to mutilate the 'torso.' Marshal Mattias, Urkh, Master222 and 4 others 6 1 Back to top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
