This Head Crab Makes Me Smart....


I had a few metal Destroyer Lord torsos sitting around, and so decided to try my hand  at a Cryptek or two. Unfortunately, the chin being tucked in makes it impossible to add the little King Tut beard that makes Crypteks so distinctive. So, the result is that he looks sort of like a dressed-up Deathmark. Hmmm.... maybe if I add a cloak or something. 


Thoughts?


Also, on a semi-related note, I came across these metal Grievous & Magna Guard models






Being made in Europe by a Spanish company called Knight Models, they're nice, but expensive. For the money, I'd rather stick with the scratch-built variety, but those are some nice minis, and  if they're not officially  licensed, it might be worth the hassle to get some before Lucasfilm shuts the company down with a tactical lawyer missile. For those interested, they also make a huge variety of other Star Wars minis, too. All of them good sculpts, too. 


Hey Knight Models, if you're reading, I do reviews for free models, sooo......

"All Knight Models® products are approved by the respective license owners"

May not be true but it looks authorized. Given the breadth of things they do, I'd say they look legit.

Shows you how much I read fine print :p

In that case, buy buy buy!

I find the pose a little off-centre, like he's falling over. Nowt wrong with parts or concept, I'd just straighten him up a wee bit.

I should've taken a picture from straight-on; the legs are actually more or less square (if a little bent) but I had to cant the torso way to right to get him to heft that staff the right way, otherwise everything would be waaaaaay over to the left.

I'll tweak the pose a bit, and add some green stuff cloak to make him look more tech-priestly.
