As mentioned here
, I am working on a gas-masked Gue'vesa army. My speed is slow, but since I worked on several things at the same time, I finished my pathfinders.
Originally I planned to used those Death-Korps of Krieg soldiers as regular Firewariors. But since their usual armor is the same as a scout's, I decided to make scouts out of them.
Since the scouts can carry rail- and ion-rifles, I finally found a good place for that female miniature. She obviously looks a bit different than the other soldiers, but she has fitting blue fabric-parts, a gas-mask (one of the most important criteria in this army
) and her rather "bold" armor seems more like the 5+ of a pathfinder than the more heavy armor of other units in the game.
I am thinking of making her the Warlord of the army. Also, I would like to make her Shas'ui - but read-as-written it seems to me like only shas'la-pathfinders can carry the special weapons. Does anybody here know something about that?
The modelling process was relatively simple. I took the entire arms of firewariors and put them on the torsos. Those arms are a bit less delicate than the torsos, so as a result the soldiers look slightly more muskular than they do in their original state. I did not change the three-finger-hand, since I believe nobody will ever check. Due to different shoulder-width, it was sometimes hard to have the left hand on a good position on the gun.
You might notice that these are not original pathfinder's guns. I took usual puls-rifles and put part of a drone-antenna on there as a marker-light(er?).
Works well enough.
I cannot claim that the painting is perfect. However, this is the part of the hobby that bores me most, so after some efford I said "enough is enough". I might improve details later on, though.
