Quick, before the inspector sees!

Oh joy. In the run up to christmas, her majesties inspectorate of schools have decided to bless us with a visit tomorrow and the next day. Yay. So in a quick effort to avoid utter panic I thought I'd spend 10 minutes hacking up some figures and photographing the start of the scavvies/desert deperadoes.
Two scavvy muties, a little Digga and a Digga boss. Apart from the boss I'm pretty much going to leave these figures alone. As I've got limited time on this project I can't be converting all the figs especially as they are perfectly acceptable. The little Digga is cute with his big gun! The boss, on the other hand, is a figure that I quite like apart from his big silly gun. I'll have a think about what I can give him instead.
This guy, from the Judge Dredd range, will be a bad ass crew member. I'm tempted to designate him as a driver for one of the buggies. It's the helmet, you see.
First conversion. I picked up this old chaos thug that had seen better days and figured he'd be a nice addition to the mob. He's got an autopistol from the cultists set and and tentacle. He is carrying a bow so I'm interested to see how he'd manage to use it with the tentacle.
And this guy is a conversion of the scavvy autogunner. I've got another version of him on it's way so this guy was fair game. He's had a head swap and a top knot added and I've replaced his peg leg (as the other guy will obviously have one) with a brand new one. No more hobbling for this guy! See you all when the nasty inspectors have finished their work.

  3. Looking promising - head swaps, new legs and unexpected source models are perfect for making an interesting scavvy gang. I'm surprised you're discarding the Digga boss gun - as soon as I saw the picture I thought you'd be using it to make a homage to the unreleased scavvy king with his lurdicrously out-sized shooter!

    1. Yeah, i'm at the stage now where I'm not sure what I'm going to do with him. He's not going to be my boss at the moment, maybe just a champion or something but I quite like the idea of him holding and autogun up in the air in a sign of defiance /encouragement.

    2. That way I can use the Digga Nob's gun on another model.

  4. Well, if your lessons are up to the same standard as your conversions, you'll be golden, mate.

    1. Thanks Rab and Riot. I was seen first thing this morning, my year 11's whose behaviour I have often likened to a chimp's stag party. They actually did me proud and all got on well. No idea how it went cos they don't tell you anymore but they still have another day to go.

    2. They don't tend to watch many lessons on the second day (normally only morning), so you've probably had your share of the pain. + Sign of a respected teacher when the students put on a show for observations.

      Great job on the minis, hope inspection results come out at least good.

      Remember, don't let the Bar Stewards get you down!
