No conversion was necessary. I drilled to place magnets on the flat end of the Paulson piece and on the underside of the forearm and attached them. The Fusion Blasters I sanded down on the attached parts. Paulsons parts are incredible, very little cleaning and the fit like a charm.

Some new additions to my Army!!! Slowly coming together. I want to do something to make the Riptide stand out more though. I was thinking about adding some white to him.

I really like you paint scheme.
What colours did you use to get the dark grey, and for the lighter grey? They both turned out very rich in color.

For the dark color I used Vallejo Model Color Dark Grey, and the highlight is Vallejo Model Color Basalt Grey. The lighter color is Vallejo Game Color Cold Grey and the Highlight is Vallejo Game Color Stonewall Grey.

Finally finished this guy. Thank goodness for being at Ft Knox for a month to focus on finishing him. I like the way he came out and I'm excited to get him in the action.

There are no blemishes on your model. Witchcraft? Airbrush?

Thank you but no Just a few watered down layers to keep it smooth. I am going to start experimenting with the Airbrush soon though

Nice work so far. Your painting and color scheme look fantastic. I also love your basing. I've been thinking allot recently about how to start basing my army and I want to do some kind of slate or layered rock.

Did you use cork board to achieve this looks?

Keep up the great work!

I did use cork board and Army Builder snow sand. A simple dry brush technique and some grass tufts for a simple good looking base. Once the Army is done I will add snow to all the bases.
