A couple of years back Khurasan released the Gutter Gophers. I loved them and immediately bought a batch. As we all know, such impulse buys end up on the lead (and plastic and resin) mountain.
I finally painted them up last year and decided they would be the "Terrorformed"; creatures made accidentally as a by-product of terraforming.
Now, I knew that the poor chaps would struggle to open up vehicles or take on the likes of my buddy's alien queen. It was around the time of Salute and I knew that GCT Studios would be attending. I had already been eyeing up The Nian from their Bushido range as a candidate for a big daddy Terrorformed.
He just needed conversion:
|Each of the back legs was put on the "wrong" side to give that back-to-front look of the Khurasan figures. I also added a Milliput tail and then cleaned my thumbnail.|
|Here his is, ready to paint.|
And, finally a couple of shots of the big old fella with some of his pack. I think they work well together. My modelling skills are nothing special but the similarities in the figures made this a simple job.
