[MODheim] Birdmen (WIP) by maxxev [MODheim] Birdmen (WIP) by maxxev
An un-original idea this time, pinched from a thread over on the Dakka Dakka forums: [link].. There will be a fair amount of Greenstuff work on him before he's finished though.

The parts for the above conversion are:
Games workshop Kroot legs, body, head, arms and hands.
Games workshop Wood elf glade guard bow and cloak.
Games workshop empire militia archers arm (which I removed the arrow from).
And a 30mm "DS Style" base of course.

Just a side note, the arrow should be on the same side of the bow as the bow arm.
Otherwise, I believe it's a great conversion.

Excellent visualization of an idea :D

Bet the hands were the most annoying part to do :P

Cheers

The hand holding the arrow was one that was previously holding a rifle, I had to carve the rifle and handle off the hand, that was a pain, the other hand was really easy in comparison. The kroot I have converted to hold spears in 2 hands though were worse lol.

Absolutely true, but this is less original than say my Terrortoise or Tau Beastmen which were my own ideas as opposed to pilfered from someone else :). I just want to ensure that no-one thinks i'm taking credit for someone else's ideas, because i'd feel bad if someone did that to me!
