Apocalators: Sextius and Legarius
Holy shit, I finished a couple figures finally. These are my first official "Apocalators;" figures specifically converted for post-apoc combat. Legarius is at the top and Sextius beneath. Not much to say about them. The Stop sign turned out better than I thought it would, but the Children at play sign still feels a bit rough. Maybe a bit more weathering will cover up the roughness.
After seeing these finished, I'm thinking I should have taken the head off Sextius. I sculpted the helmet around the figure's head, but I could have sculpted the helmet around a simple armature and saved the sculpted head for potential conversion work. A casualty of sculpting/converting without a plan. Oh well, live and learn. I still got two nice figures out of it all.
