Keeping up with last week’s theme, here’s another conversion for my friend Caflos for Infinity the game. As you already know, my friend wants his Japanese Secesionist Army (JSA) to look like characters from Saint Seiya. This week’s spotlight is for the main character himself. Seiya, Pegasus knight:
The one chosen this time for the conversion was Yojimbo, a mercenary who supports the Japanese cause:
This time arround, I was only tasked on converting the one riding the bike, and the request was simple enough. I just had to convert the helmet on the rear of the bike with the one on Seiya’s armor. This time I was lucky enough to recover the pictures I had from when my mobile phone broke, so I can show you the full process of it.
First thing I did was to remove the front plate of the helmet and carve it a bit to have it with a right shape. After that I used plasticard sheets to create a base structure where I would later build uppon:
Once glued in place, I just modelled all the helmet’s main frame:
Last thing that remained was to model some details. I used some plasticard as a base for the wings, and at last some finishing details on the helmet:
I had the miniature ready, it was time for Erik to paint it. Here’s the final result:
This is the last Saint Seiya based conversion for Caflos I’ve done for now. If he requests me more minis to convert, I’ll post it here.
’till next time!
