Conversion: Vanguard Commander
This Article was written by:
I made the lance out of a spoke of a wheel, mounted by a fantasy chaos sword. The hands are cut out of sprue parts - the trick was not to make the hands and place the weapon in it, but to build the hands around the hilt. But for the perfect position, I had to sculpt the entire arm from the elbows. I just fascinated by the look of the mechs in the anime series "Vandread", so I made the head of this suit a bit similar, using green stuff, from one of the commander heads, adding the other head's antennas to hers. The original crisis head was placed to her shoulders as a multi-tracker unit. Also, sometimes I use the vectored retro-thrusters, and I modeled it to his back, by using two old stealth suit's jetpack. The leftover antennas are placed onto the suit's own jetpack, replacing the original emblems, one with re-positioned relays. Also, I wanted to do a good, heroic position, so I placed the whole model onto rocks and bended the left leg. The "bleeding" necron is just a little extra to the scene. The banners are made of fine, thin polistyrol that I found in a chocolate box.
After I finished, it turned out that only 2 weapon mounts are useable for the 3 weapon system, so I have to pin a shield generator to the right wrist if I want to use it.
