How to customize Blade Gruts into Heavy Gruts?

I have an extra set of blade gruts I want to turn into heavy gruts and I also have a set of halberds I can use as weapons for the blade gruts to look like heavies, bet before I butcher my blades with incompetence, I want to ask for some advice. I've never done any customization or figure painting before and I am a bit cautious about how to proceed. Do I just cut off the blades with a sharp knife or small scissors and try to glue the halberds into their hands? But how to I reposition their hands? Do I dip the figures into hot water and try to mold them after that or how does it work? I tried looking through some of the sticky subjects on the customs board, but they deal mostly with using custom figures from other games or repainting existing figures, not remolding or remodeling them. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks!

I'm looking for proxies or repaints of heavy gruts, fyorlag spiders and gorillinators

Under the Other Customizations & HS Additions forum, please check out RockTroll's customs headquarters, where you will be sure to pick up a ton of tips and tricks on the subject.

Specifically, check out his rearming of the Ashigaru, which appears to be a project similar to yours. Knowing Rocktroll, I am sure that he will help you with any specific questions in regards to his process.

Re: How to customize Blade Gruts into Heavy Gruts?

thanks to user Rocktroll (who sent me the four molded weapons of Heavy Gruts) I was able to convert an extra set of Blade Gruts into Heavy Gruts and now they look like this:



although I had never done any modding before, it was super easy - I just cut off the original blades with a small pair of scissors, then drilled tiny holes with a small scredriver and just slid in the new weapons. only one grut's hand needed a bit of molding with hot water (second from right, his weapon would otherwise pointed too much towards the ground), the rest look fine to me as they are.

Re: How to customize Blade Gruts into Heavy Gruts?

I've been considering doing molds of various weapons and selling the casts. That would be very cheap (like .25 for unpainted and maybe .50 for painted). Is anyone interested in this service?
