I changed my mind, again. He now wears jeans and that looks better. Especially at tabletop distance. :)
I also managed to correct the nose shape.

‘A safe haven’: how Dungeons & Dragons is slaying social anxiety
The world’s most successful role-playing game could provide a home amid the chaos for those struggling with post-lockdown angst

, note: even if it's the 3rd mini, use photo reference. I didn't and I think he looks more like a pig than a gorilla...

... or not.
I really wanted to try a Two-Gun Ape style mini, but I don't think it will quite fit in a squad.

I'm not entirely satisfied with it but I think it works for me, as some kind of planet militia ape rather than a road/desert warrior.

I don't think it is necessary to sculpt fur on those minis. But it doesn't take long to add texture to the skin parts by applying thick, sticky gesso, with a brush with somewhat hard bristles.
So I tried that. We'll see how it will turn out in the end. Probably not spectacular but it won't ruin the mini. Probably.

This guy got rid of the horns of his helmet, then went to the dentist, then to the nose surgeon.
(I aimed for smaller teeth and a slightly bigger nose than on the previous one)

Can’t wait to see what yall do with it!

: second glued.
The worst part with the "glasses on, glasses off" method is I can't see $h*t past 15cm. So the liquid glue spilled out over my desk while I was working on the mini... :angry_steam:
I already hate that part anyway. GW "Easy to Build" really are an improvement over their usual multiparts. I should have known...

2) Mission was accomplished. One Medusa sentry gun alone took care of several waves of xenos. Unfortunately Rep 5 Pvt Proko did not make it.

Color test for its gear, by painting both halves of its helmet different colors.
Verdict: I still can't decide. I'm not satisfied by either + depending on the ambient light, I prefer one or the other... 🤔
Also: don't do color tests when the light fades at the end of the day...

Not an anymore!
It works at eye level. Harder to tell at tabletop distance due to bad eyesight and bad glasses. I think I will exagerate the nose a little on the following conversions.

rhinoplasty part 2: sculpting a gorilla nose with white gesso, a needle and a brush.
It was an experiment... as I didn't want to get into the Green Stuff process for something that is just 2X2mm.
While I was at it, I also drilled the barrel of the gun.
