James Wappel Miniature Painting: When 'life' imitates 'art'

James Wappel Miniature Painting: When 'life' imitates 'art': OK, this is another blast from the past.  Long ago, I had seen this piece of art (not sure who the artist is, but I am assuming that it does
originate from Games Workshop).

I thought it would be very fun to make something that was a bit like it.
 This meant chopping up a solid metal Marneus Calgar figure... before I
ever had a razor saw.

That certainly made this task more difficult!  You can see where the
extra GW bitz were added, as well as the brown stuff and
plasticard/polystyrene tubing.
I seem to remember using an Ork Choppa blade to create the Nemesis Weapon.  I forget where the Storm Bolter bit came from.

And the painted result.  It was a very complex paint job, since
everything was sculpted in place.  Normally, many of these pieces would
have been painted separately and then attached when complete.

Also, it weighed a ton!  It was sitting there on the end of the dowel rod, with the pin almost bending under the weight.

Still, it was an interesting project.  Believe it or not, I did 2 more
conversions using solid metal Marneus minis.  Guess I just didn't learn
my lesson the first time!
