Goblin Samurai miniature conversion for D&D

My friend Gregory had rolled up a Goblin Samurai for an all goblin D&D campaign we were going to be taking part in.

He asked me for help looking for a suitable miniature, but after a lot of fruitless searching he gave up and tried to figure out how to convert one.

Never one to pass up an opportunity, I used this problem to my advantage. I converted and painted up this miniature as his birthday gift for a few reasons:

- 1. He couldn't find one anywhere else.
- 2. He doesn't really feel that confident yet about his converting skill.
- 3. I do.
- 4. It meant I didn't have to think of something else to get him. (bonus!!!)

The majority of the miniature is citadel plastics with some scratch built elements thrown in.

Off the top of my head the parts were as follows:

- Skaven Clanrat torso.
- Goblin wolf rider arms.
- Goblin legs.
- Either a Goblin or Gretchin head.
- The armour sections were cut up Goblin shields.

    1. That was strange... Had to reload the page several times because your comment wouldn't show...

      Thank you very much :)

      I'm quite fond of the conversion on this little dude, the paint job isn't really anything spectacular. Just base colours wash and very little highlighting. Tabletop standard.
      I think I actually put more layers on the base. Actually... I really like that base... I'll have to replicate it on another figure i think.

      It's almost my friend's birthday again... He still hasn't taken this miniature home, mainly because the campaign it was made for was cancelled.
      Maybe I should adopt this figure into my collection.
