The 1997 Gorkamorka Digga Shaman. A really interesting model.
After some deliberation, I decided I wanted to try and make the model into a grizzled Imperial Guard veteran. This unfortunately meant I needed to get rid of his cool staff (I carefully snipped it off and it is ready for another conversion). I also decided that he needed some good combat boots to replace his original, massive feet. Finding replacement legs was more difficult than I anticipated, with most of them simply being too big to fit with the rest of the model. Fortunately I found that the random squad of Elysian veterans I purchased years ago (and never assembled...) fit seamlessly with the model. Forge World’s models tend to have a little bit more finesse than the raw bulk of GW plastic models, making it ideal for subtle conversion work.
The Elysian Drop Troop legs fit remarkably well in the place of the Digga’s original ones.
