Hmmm, huge muscles and leather pants?
The first 2 steps would be a job for the greenstuff. It wasn't too hard to remove the loin-cloth from the model (I'm sorry GW it just wasn't cheesy enough). For the base I wanted something really overblown. I decided that rather than raid my bits box (as my fantasy spares are a bit thin on the ground) I'd have a look and see what was available in the world of resin bases. Handily, I'd seen some rather nice stuff from Scibor Miniatures before, so I checked out what they had. In the end I bought a set of 3 resin statue head style bases for about £5.50. It turned out to be a great deal and they were rather impressive when they arrived.
I mounted the resin base in the centre of a larger base and then went to town adding additional details.
It turned out that the most difficult part of the whole build was repairing his buttocks - or should I say forming them in the first place! The GW model was entirely flat, so after a bit of delicate surgery he was endowed with a manly behind!
|Not bad, considering the total cost of the model is about £12. He is actually about the same size as Mortarion now!|
The finished model is now ready for paint. We'll see how that goes later. For those who missed Bungo's adventures, find them here:
|The junk in the trunk!|
Here's an excerpt of the good stuff to wet your appetite:
Bungo thrust his armoured crotch plate wildly at a swooning tavern wench.
"Another Mead" he bellowed enthusiastically. His booming voice was punctuated by a dull thump as another buxom maiden fell to the ground; rendered unconscious from the sheer rapture of his manly presence.
Bungo took a heroic gulp of his drink, chugging back the beverage with warrior-like abandon; and spilling equally large quantities down his chiselled and bulging torso, eliciting sighs from the on looking villagers.
