This is my gun slinger that
I made for 28mm Inquisitor.

||Head from the 40k Space Wolves Sprue
||Necromunda Autopistol and Stubber
||A few small minor
bits I had in my box.
I converted this model in 2001 and painted it in
Here are the basics of what I did to create this
model. This was a pretty easy conversion once I found all the pieces
I was going to use. Almost the entire figure is plastic with very
little work done to make all the parts fit.
I just assembled the figure
like you would any regular plastic model. I did need to do some cutting
and filing to get the head to fit on the body. Also the arms I used
are from the first set of Imperial Guard plastics. It is neat to
see what you can create just mixing various plastic kits and this
figure was made entirely with spare parts I had.
An interesting note
on painting. I painted the gunslinger model this year, a few years
after my first 28mm Inquisitor
figures. I can tell a big diference
in my painting style and it is nice to see how my painting has gotten
over the years (at least I like to think so).
