Ash Waste Nomads Stormcaller
I recently completed another Ash Waste Nomad conversion; this time, I converted a Stormcaller for my growing tribe! I wanted my Stormcaller to look a bit different to the standard Helamite riders, so I opted for a conversion.
The conversion itself was a little more complex than it looks at first glance as there was a fair difference in size when it came to the Kruleboy I removed from the Gnashtoof I used to make the Stormcaller's mount. I carved away the majority of the Boos including the legs and some of the cloth covered pelvis.
This left the Gnashtoof a bit hollow, so I packed it with tinfoil before re sculpting the missing areas. I also added a little more beaten armour to the rump of the mount.
The rider was made from a Dustback Helamite rider - again, heavily converted to fit the model. I ended up cutting the saddle parts away and just using the Nomad's legs which I sculpted to fit the slightly larger saddle.
I removed the ruins and marsh plants from the Gnashtoof and tweaked it slightly, re-carving the feet a little. This left the model with a nice pouncing motion which I quite liked!
No true Stormcaller would be seen dead without a staff, so I made him one from the original Kruleboyz boss' spear!
I added a rifle, a canister and some piping to the miniature, making sure to fill any gaps in the cloth and adding a strap for the rifle to hold it in place.
The whole conversion took a few evenings of work and I was quite pleased with the results!
I'm now working on the rest of the tribe and hope to have them finished in the near future!
