Step 6 - Final detailing..
Now the stage was set for the chaplain to come together. I had already positioned pins in the body to support the ams. I again spent a bit of time getting the model standing upright, and positioning the arms so that they were just right. The chaplain would be charging with the bolt pistol in his left hand pointing at the enemy while wielding the crozius in his right hand, ready to swing. The left arm was carefully positioned so that the bolt pistol was lined up along his eye level.
Cyphers cloak and bolt pistol holsters had a very dynamic image to them, as if they were being thrown about as the chaplain charged. I was glad I had swapped to the Cypher model for this project. Finally the detailing was added in way of the litanies on the purity seals and final touch ups. Looking back it is probably one of my better conversions. While this is nowhere near the high standards displayed by many in the hobby, it just proves that anyone can create a reasonably effective conversion, even without using the much vaunted green stuff putty.
