I've put some time into getting my fallen conversions painted, so far I'm really happy with the progress.

They look really good. Love the mixing of armour marks and the bases.

Did you have to do any modifications to the missile launcher or the marine to get it to fit right? I could never get the FW ML to sit right on it's own :confused:

Thanks for the feedback! The bases are from Forgecraft games, I think there are 25 different bases in all, so I never have squad members with the same base. I had to cut off the vent on the marine backpack to get it to fit. After that, it fit just fine, after cutting down the vent, I cut off the small round grille area at the end and glued it to the backpack, so in effect, I just took out the round part in between. That way if you examine it, you can see it still functions.

Ah, I thought you'd done something like that. I'll remember this for next time! Thanks a lot :D
