XX: Bone Leg

Here's a crappy picture of a WIP plague marine made mostly of bits from the berserker box I got today. One of the arms is from a chappy & the bone leg is, of course, from that box of skeleton warriors I picked-up not too long ago.

I pinned the bone-hip and the chappy shoulder; my first attempt at pinning. I also weighted the base.


  1. If you don't mind my asking, what are you using for pins and weights? Did you use one pin running all the way through the bone or two small ones at each end?

    For myself, I use standard sewing pins for support pieces and American nickels for weights...

  2. Actualy, this was my first crack at pinning anything so I only pinned the top of the bone (with a bit of paperclip) and for the bottom part of the bone I just kinda gouged a hole for it to go into and then used plastic glue. I'm a little nervous about how it's going to hold, so the next time I did that conversion I pinned both ends.

    As for weights; I'm just using bit of metal from shield and head spues.

    Thanks for the kind comments!
