What Happened to Pvt. Smith? A simple guardsman conversion
This is a concept piece that underscores that even the most simple of conversions (a head swap) can dramatically alter the entire feel of a piece. All that has been done here is to swap the head of a standard plastic Cadian Guardsman for a plastic warhammer fantasy Dryad. Not only do the heads of the Dryads looks malevolent, but there's a distinct "daemon" feel to the guardsman now.
The painting of the miniature is nothing particularly special: muted browns on the jacket and trousers with grey boots all washed down in brown and highlighted. The carapace armour is ultramarine in approach: blues with light blue highlights around the edges. The head is a vibrant yellow with brown lowlights and whiter highlights. The eyes are dotted pure skull white with a steady hand and a triple zero brush.
In terms of what I'll use this unique piece for inside the game, I'm not too sure to be honest. Perhaps as the result of a boon of mutation spell?
