Arc Trooper Conversions

Gruntz forum member raziel has made some great progress on some custom changes to his Arc troopers for Gruntz. He has modified some of figures for the command bases and is using 5pence pieces which is my normal choice for 15mm models.  

He has also been using some of the Windsor and Newton texture gel which I describe using in my "Basing 15mm Miniatures" video guide on Youtube.   Since the time this video was recorded I have started to use the newer Windsor texture gel which has volcanic rock particles in the mixture. You can see these as black dots in Raziel's photos below.

To see more of his great work, check out this forum post for the discussion.

  1. Thats some very nice conversion work. Conversions on that scale are fiddly as hell.

  2. Indeed I don't think I could do that size of conversion on the troops. I can do mini-conversions on vehicles though.

  3. Yes, these look good, they will paint up nicely.

  4. Thanks for posting my pics on main page.
    Vtol is not a conversion, there is an option to pick one with missiles.

  5. On the subject of Roach VTOL conversions. Have you seen this: It is from a Wizzkids mech I think and bolted onto the Roach.

  6. No, its amazing, maybe I'll do one later, but first I need to finish what I've got and have little time to do it.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on the blog! Robin
