As I stated in my last post I recently attended a 40k tournament and decided to take Boss Snickrot. I have never been a fan of the original head but loved his model, as I think his head didn't quite look great and I wanted to go with something a little bit more traditional. So I decided to get the green stuff out and see what I could come up with.
It wasn't long before I decided on his head replacement as I think it is more in keeping with his model, as a whole and his just beret adds another neat touch that makes him look like a proper, WW2 commando. I also plan to do his squad the same as I think it would make it look quite unique on the tabletop
I also positioned the model as if he were sneaking up behind someone, after all that's what commandos do, or so I've been told which meant that I had to reposition his head and make his neck longer, which meant I came up with a rather good idea to convert him to having a T-shirt rather than having him barechested.
This is a very simple conversion and wasn't too difficult to achieve, and because his model is quite big it's very easy to achieve. He is a popular choice with any ork player and makes mine a little bit more unique.
You can also see his neck has been lengthened as you can just about see where his T-shirt.
By simply putting a line of green stuff the hallway along his upper arm you can easily make it look like he's wearing a T-shirt, also it will also help when sculpting his neck to make it look a little bit more refined,
I must admit I was quite pleased with the results. and I'm already thinking about some ideas is for his unit so do you have any suggestions?
