So back on Black Friday, Privateer Press had old Mk II battleboxes for $10 each. That was too good a deal to pass up, so I got a Khador one amongst others. I don’t really need more Destroyers or Juggys, though, and I DO need more Marauders. Marauder arms are hard to come by now-a-days, so I was forced to make my own. My modding skills don’t match my vision, but they are more than serviceable.
Step #1, remove “upper arm” part of arm from some random arms.
Step #2, take some small binder clips and, using a Dremel, remove the rounded bits
Step #3, using styrene bits, construct an arm. Fill in binder clips with putty
Step #4, decorate the arms a bit, also zenithal priming
Step #5 (the hard to photograph one), deepen shadows and brighten highlights a la sketch style
Now, on to painting. Here’s what I have so far.
Adding some oranges and yellows to the bright spots, and giving it a quick matte varnish (the Daner and Rowney inks are very glossy)
