Fellow TMPer and miniatures gamer Dropzonetoe posted this amazing conversion of a Gundam action figure into a rather amazing piece of kit for his 15mm GOTA forces. The GOTA are a cool hard scifi force from Khurasan Miniatures which he has already supplemented with robots and drones from Ground Zero Games. Dropzonetoe doesn't keep a blog, so I am not able to link you there, but I can offer this link to the TMP story - HERE.
Dark and moody photo taken initially. Looks like the units is moving out for night ops.
So, I know converting action figures into gaming stuff isn't new, but Dropzonetoe really accomplished something pretty amazing with this one. If you look at the bright, big-headed, 1980s anime war machine he started with and then what it became, you can really see how effective a few little bits of conversion are.
Dropzonetoe has this to say about the project...
I did break the antenna off the top within a few miniatures of handling it. It is a rubbery material but it took to a spray of Krylon spray-paint just fine After painting the torso I painted the arms separately. They are simple plugs and pull off easily. The gun armed hand is the same way.
I just added a dab of E6000 to all the joints and left it to dry a bit.
Seeing as it had a single cycloptic eye, I wanted to tie it in with my GZG drones and Robots. So, I painted it the same red eye and added rolls of camo netting to the top of it.
