INQ28 - Homine Piscis 2

Back in December, I completed this conversion, and poor little fishman has been rattling around in my paint box for a while unfinished.  Well no longer! 

As part of last weekend's photography, I managed to get this guy photographed, although again, the colors are off. 
Close shot of that frightening visage, and his chemical powered lasgun

I decided that the "lantern" is really a proto-eye, and that it is used to look around corners and such.  He carries a few bombs and a couple of reloads for his chemical lasgun.  Undecided if he will be a mercenary, or working with the Rogue Trader I have sitting around on the workbench.

Great looking model! I have not looked too closely at the Bones line of miniatures from Reaper, but you have done a wonderful job of integrating him into the 40k mythos. The kroot arms work really well on the model.

While it might be a little hard to modify now that he is painted, what are your thoughts about trimming off the base molded to the model's feet? That would allow you to re-base the model such that you don't see the slot. Alternatively, you could and some flocking or modeling putty to hide the slot.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks Adam! Reaper makes a bunch of great figures, and many of those are migrating to bones, which means they cost less than half as much as before, and are easier to modify... for most figures that is pretty win win, although a few lose detail due to their original pose.

The basing is not complete for this guy, and I had considered cutting the integral base out. I will certainly try and reduce it a bit more, and he will be going on a 30mm base, which will help too.
