Sontarans Part 3

Finished my 1st pass at painting the converted Sontarans.

Not sure if they're done or if I want to do something more to give them more definition & shading.

Scroll down to my prior Sontaran posts below to see what they're supposed to look like.

The Pledge Feb 25

Bought 8 modern infantry from
Dadi & Piombo
for my Doctor Who UNIT forces. I got 1 pack of French & 1 pack of Italians to be combined to make a heavy support squad.

12 25mm figures * 1.5 = 18 figures

Total figures to "finish": 56 + 18 = 74

Sontarans Part 2

Did the helmets, & included the chest detailing on a few of the figures. I decided against trying to do any additional detailing on the helmets like the crest since it would probably be pretty involved & tough to get to look right.

Now just need to finish the small pistol like weapons off & replace them with the Sontaran's rod weapon. Then they'll be ready for painting. Not sure if I'll try to do the light blue uniform color as shown in the prior post, or if I'll use the more classic dark grey/black color.

Sontarans Part 1

Got some of the Starguard Heavy Power Armor from Leading Edge Games' Living Steel line as part of an ebay auction.
I intend to try to convert them into Sontaran Troopers for Doctor Who.

Here are the figures after I've ground off all the straps, belts & pouches, & modified the guns a little. Since I ended up grinding away a good portion of some of the figures' legs, I added some putty to make them not look quite so spindly.

Next I'll build up their helmets with more putty to get the dome like shape of the Sontarans, & for those that I've ground off all chest detailing (like the 1st in the top row) I may try to put another layer of putty down to re-engrave new detail to match the rest.
