Just a quick show-off of some quick work I did last week and just haven't had the time to post up. This conversion is for my unit of Servitors as well as a Techmarine. In the AdMech fandex I have each Servitor equipped with a lasgun as well as allowing certain upgrades from the lasgun. In the same respect, the Techmarines-in-training with the AdMech do not have bolters and instead have lasguns. Unfortunately GW and I don't see eye-to-eye on what the Servitors and Techmarines deserve, so a conversion was in order. More after the break.
Firstly, a few snippets of some lasguns and "The Twins" are ready to roll. The one on the right took a little bit of exacto-knife work to get the gun to line up with his arm like a puzzle piece, but turned out great. The Servitor on the left really didn't have a good place for a lasgun on either arm, so I decided to fit one to his chest so he can show us what a man with a cannon in his chest is really made of:
The Intro-Photo Makes A Little Bit More Sense Now, Huh?
Next up is the heavy hitters of the Servitors. I find myself wanting a Multi-Melta and Plasma Cannon more than anything else, so I used some sponson weapons from a Leman Russ kit:
I took some GS to fill in the indentions of the weapons for the shoulders first:
Then placed some appropriate-looking bits for more detail. The first image has a sort of canister with him, and the second Servitor has a collection of cases. I picture Servitors as lackeys/warmachines/walking-purses for the AdMech on Tech-Quests, so I see a bunch of cases for powercells and whatnot as spot-on:
Finally, my Techmarine needed to be downgraded from a bolter to a lasgun. A simple clip of the bolter's magazine and barrel, and the addition of some plasticard turn this into a lasgun hefty enough for a Space Marine.
I'm debating making the barrel one size smaller, but it hasn't bothered me much, yet as I picture Techmarines getting lasguns specifically made for them while they train with the AdMech:
That's all for now. Just a quick and simple conversion. There's more to come; slowly, but surely.
