Boys and their toys

Time for some Star Wars love again. I've picked a relatively simple endeavour, the E-Web engineers. There are just two of them, so I could leave one as it is and convert only one mini. Besides, it's all black and white, so there won't be that much work! Laziness, I hear you scream? Meh, I prefer time & resources optimization :D :D

So there we go. The first one is the untouched one. Just as it is:

Pew, pew, die you rebel scum!
Have you seen the size of my gun?
The thing about converting the other mini is that I honestly didn't know where to start. I mean, it's a guy shooting his gun, what could I do? I took the easiest solution, I put him at ease, proudly posing for an Imperial propaganda poster :D

Enlist now. The Empire needs you.
You can see this involved quite a reposing effort, hehe. I had to cut every limb out from the poor guy and fix all his articulations. I'm unhappy with his right knee, but I'm not redoing any work for the moment.

Stop posing and help me over here, man!
I still haven't even opened the rulebook, but as far as I'm concerned, I think it's important to make differences between minis for gaming purposes (some kind of Descent like stuff, I've heard), so at least these two meet that requirement!

I'm uncertain of what will I take on next, as usual, but I'm on it!!

    1. Haha, he should make it into a poster. 'Buy war bonds! YOU can help to crush the rebellion!' :D

    1. Haha, thanks! As much as I pretend to disguise it, it's pure laziness, but hey, I've learned that in fact that's the mother of most efficient projects! :D

  4. That's clever: I wouldn't have had a clue about how to convert him. He also looks a bit amusing, which is even better!

    1. In fact it's all due to the fact that I had no clue of what could I do with the gunner, there was no obvious choice, so I finally opted for this 'at ease' approach. He only lacks a pair of sunglasses for a 'deal with it' meme :D
