OK this is a short picture artical on conversion with green stuff.
This is all about having fun… there is no stunning stuff here.. rough sculpting and showing how you can make those extra figures you have go further.
SO the problem here is you can get about three different poses of metal figure for Mordor Uruk-hai from GW.
But when I buy second hand figures there is always a bunch of Uruk-hai engineers from Sarumans White hand Uruk-hai (WHU) army mixed in with the lot.. what to do?
Yep I decided to make them Mordor Uruk-hai (MUH). But MUH look different.. they have predominantly dark skin, wear basic plate Armour and lots of mail.
WHU have big brimmed helmets (for siege ops) I suppose), segmented plate armor and other uniform features… so.. lets make them un-uniform and give them trousers.
A = Helmet rims come off
B = Shoulder segments come off and reduce to two parts only
C = Chest plate is reduced and leather straps are removed
D = Stomach segments are removed
E = groin plate (sporren?) removed
F = Rear engineers helemet piece is removed
G = Wrist plates are removed
After carving off details
Added greenstuff.. making:
Crude mail skirt sections on sides
smoothed plate section on chest
added cloth interleave on right shoulder
added helmet crest
Filled in bare legs with rough torn trouser material
Still need to add leather strap sections but mostly done.. on the way to looking like Mordor Uruk-hai now.
I also need to add some better weapons.. big swords.. and maybe a mace or flail… I have five of them now so lets play game … you suggest to me the armament and I will make it and add it.
