Video: How to Paint Miniatures – Converting Soda Master Candy

In my latest video, I convert Soda Master Candy by modifying Shadow Mode Candy and Ninja Cola.

Soda Master Candy’s model is no longer available, but her card comes with Brave Mode Candy, who can be played as either version.

Fungal Growths, Ninja Cola and Deeproot Wolf Rider

More Super Dungeon Explore! First up are the Fungal Growth spawning points, painted in quick tabletop quality:

Fungal Growth

My Ninja Cola is actually Darkspace Cola with Ninja Cola’s weapon. I thought he looked like a better Ninja Cola and I’ll be using the original model in a later conversion.

Finally, here’s my Deeproot Wolf Rider with converted bedroll:

Shadow-Mode Candy, Von Drakk and Converted Bedroll

I’ve finished some more Super Dungeon Explore models. First up is Shadow-Mode Candy who might be my new favourite Super Dungeon mini.

Fighting alongside Candy’s evil twin is the vampire end boss, Von Drakk:

The Deeproot Wolf Rider model is missing the bedroll shown in its artwork, so I made my own. I’ll load a video showing how I converted it next week.

Kaelly the Nether Strider, Wandering Minstrel, Kinoshrooms, Claw Trainers and Ser Sharpclaw

I’ve gone a bit crazy painting Super Dungeon Explore lately. This time of year is normally when my painter’s block/apathy kicks in, but this year I seem to be in overdrive!

First up is Kaelly the Nether Strider, whose hero version the Nether Assassin is quickly becoming one of my favourites. Her potion is a lifesaver!

Next is the Wandering Minstrel. I’m actually using him as a tank; he generates a ton of wrath with his potion and supportive actions and by loading him up with Dex equipment he can dodge out of harm’s way.

Wandering Minstrel

I’ve started painting minions from the Emerald Valley set. First up are the Kinoshrooms.

Finally I’ve finished the Claw Trainers

And Ser Sharpclaw from the Claw of the Wyrm warband.

Ser Sharpclaw

I converted him by adding reins.

Converted Arcanist Mechaniks, Sylys Wyshnalyrr and Magister Helynna

I’ve converted a few Retribution of Scyrah models lately. First up are my second and third Arcanist Mechaniks (See previous post here)

Converted Arcanist

I didn’t like Sylys Wyshnalyrr’s original pose so I swapped his legs with a Reaper Bones miniature.

I only slightly converted Magister Helynna by sculpting her hair.

The pulled-back mohawk + tattoo look was inspired by Jack from Mass Effect 3.

Arcanist Mechanik Conversions

The Arcanist Mechanik is a great Retribution solo. I wanted the maximum of allowance of three but they only come in one sculpt:

Arcanist

So I wanted to convert the other two. For the first, I was inspired by the following artwork by Chris Walton:

Arcanist

I removed the tool from his left hand, re-angled the arm, added a mug and filled in the arm with putty. I removed his right hand and replaced the tool, sculpting the hand. I also added a cigarette to his mouth. I actually drilled it into his face to make sure that it doesn’t break off, and sculpted his lips around it.

Arcanist Conversion

The other was a more significant conversion. It’s a gender-swap with a lot of putty work. I made a mould of Kaelyssa’s face and shoulder-pad and scratch-built the rest of the torso. I had to rebuild some of the right hand and bottle-things as I removed them when making the torso.

Princess Malya

I slightly converted Princess Malya because I didn’t like the fact that she has two sets of ears (although I get that it’s an homage to her Relic Knights incarnation…).

Princess Malya

Now it looks like her rabbit ears are attached to her new headband.

Croak Raiders Conversion: Feral Nyss

It’s taken me almost a year but I’ve finally finished my Feral Nyss unit conversion. I was inspired by the updated Privateer Press conversion policy to convert a unit out of a completely different unit. In this case, I tried to make models that capture the spirit of Croak Raiders, but make them Nyss so that they fit better into my Everblight army.

Converted Nyss

I started with Circle Tharn Bloodtrackers and swapped their heads for Dark Eldar Wych heads. Then I sculpted tiny gourds and flames for their weapons. I hope that the orange wrist/anklewraps and green warpaint helps to tie them to the Croaks even more.
