WIP Posing Marines

The limited poses of space marines drives me crazy. Mixing in running legs from the assault box can help, but only so much. Having one or two marines posed differently using GW parts also helps (e.g., the kneeling and auspex marines, previously pictured).

But wanting some more variability, I've started messing around with converting marines into different poses. the MK4 marine previously pictured (in an aiming position) was a minor reposing conversion, but it really just moved the bolter up closer to the guy's face -- barely noticeable, really. So decided to go for another converted pose in this squad, something a little more distinct.

Hence, we have 'Mr. walking-with-weapon-in-stand-by-position." First time I've ever tried a serious reposing. My Green Stuff skills need some work, but with a few adjustments, this guy should be good to go.


  1. I thought your meltabomb guy turned out quite well, has he not shown up on this blog yet?

  2. Nope. He's in the wings for the next tactical squad. :)

  3. Looks good- I've never understood why "holding his bolter pointing backwards next to his face" is a pose that you can easily make with the existing arms, but this isn't. I have been enjoying building Space Wolves lately for the flexibility from having one-handed bolter holds- might be worth snagging a Grey Hunters box just to see what you can do with some of those arms.
