    One of my conversion ideas involves adding armor to the kruleboyz.

    These will be my "Rustpox" warriors equivalent.

    I'm already planning to incorporate blightking and warriors bits.

    But I also want to challenge myself.

    I've seen others use pre-holed sheets of brass in conversions before.

    This is where I need y'all's help. I don't know where to source sheet brass that has been punched with holes... Any ideas?

    Jotting down a kitbash idea for later:

    Wargames Atlantic horses

    Full plaguebearer torso pinned to head gap.

    Spear arm from kruleboyz gutrippas non-dominion kit

    Offhand arm from somewhere else with shield.

    Heads from blightkings or chaos warriors.

    Armor panels and other sculpting/accouterments.

    Boom chaos knights

    Work so far today, trying to break myself from burnout.

    One stage (dark brown base color) on shields, 2 further along marauders.

    One stage on two more pox bloods. Any suggestions on tentacle/mutation colorations?

    On Tuesday I visited my local GW and took the time to inspect the Kruleboyz they had on display for the learn-to-play table, they're smaller than they look on the site, which makes your sculpting all the more impressive, and my idea of turning some of them into Fimir all the more challenging...

    They are about the size of a regular infantry figure, though? I appreciate your words.

    I started building a chaos warrior standard bearer, who I have affectionately named Stu, after the manager at my favorite hobby shop in Tampa, Stuart.

    I had this really clever idea about using circumference and surface areas to explain why when you create straps for harnesses or rope you should always use less than you think you'll need, but it would have been VERY long winded and I forgot to carry the 1...

    Continuing on

    Looking very nice, definitely a healthy attitude, the "he/she who dares wins", think big, think bold, if the following meme is still allowed and not considered an antique, Leroy Jenkins that model, because we learn little from our triumphs, nothing from our flukes and vast amounts from our failures.

    I have a couple of questions as I think it will help me understand what you're going for a little better.
    1. What sort of look are you aiming for.
    2. what are your sticking points/what's causing you trouble.
