Ok, so i spent a few days converting, cleaning and removing the mold lines and putting together 2 fexes for this monster army. Overall im happy with them and the charging one is much more dynamic than the normal ones.

 Charging Fex - this was the one that took the longest to convert, i added a plate to the underbelly of the beast. Then i repositioned the legs to show it charging and put in a large pin into the base so that the foot can support the whole body. I grinded off some the ridges on the tail area and i made it straighter than a curved position. The spikes on the back was easy enough to just glue and the head took a while to do. What i did with the head was cut half of it off to fit the regenerate to it and then i added some spikes to the head.  et voila its looking good, time to get painting.

Shooty Fex - So this one was a little bit easier to do ... or so i thought. The stance was easy enough but i positioned the legs a bit further apart so i used some green stuff to help separate it a bit. I wanted to add spores launcher thing on the armour plating but include some reinforced armour too, so i took another piece of carapace and put one ontop of another and made the inside part look a bit more gooey and monstery like.  The arms couldnt position itself all that well so i thought this is a monster shooting guns with things living in its back so its going to be heavy and always be in that position, so i positioned the arms on the lower part of the body and blocked up the normal grooves and added a bit more armour plating.

Overall im happy with both, my green stuff skills are getting much better but i will keep working on it. One day i might try the ultimate by sculpting from scratch, but for now its this and then smaller bits and bobs. Now i gotta paint them both.
