MODheim: Mato

DISCLAIMER: this was not my idea, it was filched over from Tael on ATT:
His blog is over here: link

Another conversion that I saw some years ago and loved the look of.
I immediately went out and got most of the parts for it but was stumped for a few bits.
However just recently I was tidying my plastic pile and I came across the parts I needed to finish the conversion... !! I grabs the bits and took them straight to my desk.

some fiddling, swearing and picking apart my Superglue'd fingers later I had this to show off:

I love this little guy, I have no idea what i'm going to do with him and I only have the parts for one more, but that doesn't change the fact that I love it!

The parts are: Nid Gaunt head, OOP plastic spider (from WH quest or the OOP spider swarm), and 2 each of the 2 gaunt guns, plus one of the little toxin sack thingys (and some plastic card).

One of the most creative / imaginative conversions i've ever seen.

If anyone else has seen any really creative conversions out there on the net, please feel free to share the links!!

Have a good one.


  1. Interesting conversion... I take it that this was one of those projects that you didn't want to dig to deep into the Green Stuff because you have really pushed the boat out with tiny plastic components :)

    1. I just copied tael 100%.
      It could do with a bit of puttey here and there though...
      I'd be aftraid about not applying too much pressure when smoothing it that's for sure. lol.
