January Catch-up: Adeptus Custodes Shield-Commander Conversion

It’s the last belated January post! this time it’s a conversion, and something an extra bit special (to me) – a custom Shield-Captain/Shield-Commander to lead the Adeptus Custodes force I’ve had as “work in progress” since at least 2018.

It’s based on the amazing Bastian Carthalos miniature, with parts from across the Custodes range. The torso, and one shoulder pad, is from Trajan Valoris, the hands and spear from the Wardens kit, and the rest comes from the Allarus Terminators.

This was by far the most complicated conversion I’ve done in a very long time! I had to do some sculpting with Milliput on the cloak, to get parts to blend together, and there was a lot of work to get the torso pieces to fit together. There was lots of gap filling, and more than a bit of swearing as things either didn’t work how I wanted to first time, or turned out to be a lot more fiddly! Still, I’m really happy with how it’s turned out. I’ll have a post soon (in February!) to show off the painted version.
