What's On Your Table:
I bought my son some Lord of Skull upper body bits off ebay because he wanted to have a standing one.  He came back to me and told me to buy him more bits and a Defiler model so he can make legs. I told him I couldn't because we don't have the cash.  He told me no problem and locked himself in his room for a few days....


That weekend he showed me what he did.  He used Pacific Rim Gipsy Danger legs for the Lord of Skulls.   My son has ADHD and he has trouble keeping his mind on track. But when it comes to Warhammer 40k conversions, he has a real gift.  He is focused and takes time to paint it perfectly.  

I was blown away and had to share it. Maybe it is good enough to show on your blog. 
His name is Talen and we call him "Talented".

  1. Talented! He certainly is. It's a shame our hobby is so expensive, I'm sure there are lots of youngsters that would find it a great way to express themselves. I recon your son could fund his future projects with commissions

  2. In my view 40k is not that expensive if you compare costs to buying a new console and c. 5 computer games, or sports like tennis and cricket if you take them fairly seriously (coaching and equipment). Also, if you sell your 40k stuff then it usually more or less holds its value. Unlike the aforementioned.

    And yeah, cool conversions and the other figs in the background were all nicely done too.

  3. Talen is indeed talented, this is a masterpiece, really well done! I've been diagnosed with ADHD too in my childhood, but my ability to hyperfocus never yielded in a such spectacular model. I wish him a great fun with future projects (don't forget to show us photos from time to time, please:)

  5. Jesus, that is one cool looking Lord of skulls....but to be honest, i am much more afraid of that HUGE Ork Trike-Leviathan in the background.....

  6. This is a stroke of genius! I love the repurposed dozer blade as well, superb idea. That's quite a project table going on there in the background, very much hoping to see a few more submissions in the future!

  7. The kids got talent all right. Those legs look great for that model. I like them better then the legs FW's coming out with. Bet their a hell of a lot cheaper then FW legs to.

  8. That actually looks pretty good. Reminds me of my action figures of my childhood. Only real problem is that the legs look a little too long for the torso. It's just a little off too me. I ain't saying it's bad though. It's bloody awesome :)

  9. Really nice, would have added armor plates on the shin guards to bulkin im up though, but the base is pretty good realy.

    Using cheap toys for conversion is always a good option.
