OBLITERATE THEM!!! #2 Obliterator convertion series

For the second half of this post series, I will need a volunteer! Any of you plastic chaos terminators will do. You will be transformed into a shooty lumbering behemoth of chaos. Behold your future..............................................................................

SPECIAL THANKS TO DE LA ROSA!!!!!

This instructional set will not be text heavy because I believe that most of you can put two and two together to get five! It is easy, really it is. If you are a beginner then you should watch these videos before you start. They discuss basic skills needed to convert and finish this model.

2) pinning model parts http://chaos-space-marines.blogspot.com/2009/05/pinning-model-parts.html

In the first post, http://chaos-space-marines.blogspot.com/2009/06/obliterate-them-1a-obliterator.html, I told you the bits that were necessary to do this conversion. If you have them then we can start with the assembly. The red part of the bits are to be cut off. Take care to preserve the grey part of the bit because that is what will be used in the conversion.

1) teleport homer "bottom half"

2) Imperial termie arms "top half"

3) assembled together 1+2= 3

Some people use a product called Blue Tac when trying to position/ pose the model. I just use my fingers.

One of the things that I do when I start a conversion project is to thumb through my bits boxes and pick out bits that I may or may not be useful during construction. I knew exactly what I would be using for this project, except for the weapons. And that is what makes these models look so cool, the totally compensating for something, over the top weapons. Use what ever you think looks good. Its your model. Plasma and Melta guns work really well for this project.

Still have to say that this is one of the best mods I have seen. I like the fact that they really look mechanical and not organic!

it is fun to convert, but the san thing is that i just started warhammer 40k (a half year ago) so i dont have manny bits.
