I removed the arms with a hacksaw, and replaced them with a modern plastic Dark Eldar left arm, and a right arm from a Skitarri ranger. The sleeve of the ranger's arm had to be cut down and pretty extensively built up with green stuff. She also got a new, huge, shoulder pad made from the blade of an old elf axe.
I'd originally intended a Tank Girl riot of colours for this model, but as I put it together, it seemed more goth than punk. I went for a more subdued black and green colour scheme, with orange as a contrasting spot colour. She looks like someone from a 1980s science fiction film:
The year is 1997. Atomic war has reduced the Earth to looking like a disused quarry. Radioactivity has inexplicably made animals large and angry. Bandits roam the land, in the service of the deadly Queen Spatula. Only one man can save mankind - Dirk Rockwell, the Freedom Cop!
|"We meet again, Dirk Rockwell."|
Here's a rear view. I really like the sculpting of the cloth, and I'm pretty pleased with my paint job.
On the subject of dodgy models, Necron warriors are a bloody pain in the arse. These really need a re-sculpt: not so much a redesign as some new poses and the ability to turn their heads without snapping their necks. I like the concept, but they're not easy to make. Anyhow, they do look a lot better walking forwards, rather than the bow-legged standard pose.
