Purbrook Models Competition

A new model selling company called Purbrook Models announced on facebook a competition.
Which was what can you do with a free model in a month. The prize being a £10 voucher to spend in there store. So I though what the hell I'll give it a go. So here is my entry. Its a Mantic Corporate Marine It arrived fairly sharpish and not wanting to waste a figure I thought I'd convert it slightly and use it with my Hasslefree Lady Soldiers also sold by Mantic. I changed the head for one I had in the bits box as the helmet didn't really go with the others and then added a bit of sprue to make a drum magazine to the rifle and plan to use it as a light support weapon for my troops.  I think its fits in well with the G36's carried by the rest of the gals so. Fingers crossed for the competition.

Posts might be a bit infrequent over the coming weeks with the prep coming upto Christmas and trying to get my Competition entry done most of my hobby time will be spent on that. There will be plenty of posts of the entry once its over but I don't want to show the work here yet.
