Old Stuff Wednesday - January... War Mammoth Conversion
Back a few years ago, someone in Canada commissioned me to do a Chaos War Mammoth conversion using using a Lord of the Rings War Mumak.
This is one of the bigger conversions that I have worked on. I went through a lot of GS doing up the fur on the mammoth. I remembered struggling with the idea of the howdah and settled for using scored plasti-card construction.
The head was some of the most fun building up the armor. I decided to use a plasticard piece to make a large flat armored piece on the head and then blended the GS in to it.
The person who commissioned the model did not want me to build a beastmaster and did not have me build any marauders to go with the model. In hindsight, I wish I would have at least build the beastmater rider. One thing with the Mumak model is the wrappings and supports and harness for the howdah is already modeled for you.
Add a bunch of spikes and chaos shields and panels. Makes for finishing off the model.
Last year I purchased another of these models for myself. Hopefully this year I will get around to converting one for myself.
