The Mammoth is Ready for Paint: Maulerfiend Conversion Taken to the Next Level!

TJ (AKA the artist formerly known as Old School Terminator) here with an update on the "Mammoth," my Maulerfiend conversion. This one may be huge, but it was a quick project for me. Let's take a brisk run around the model.

Since the last time I posted an update on this model, I basically added some Green Stuff fur, a little more flesh and a few bits here and there.

Basically, I almost let this conversion slide for a while ... until I saw Fly Molo whipping his hair back and forth with a super fast CSM army, rocking some Maulerfiends to make it to the top table! I really like the fast play, ignoring terrain and simple nature of "MAULER SMASH!"

So, I got home a put a little love into this conversion to get it ready for paint.

For those of you looking at how light my Green Stuff looks ... I have started combining Green Stuff and Miliput. I use a ratio of 3 parts Miliput and 1 part Green Stuff. You need to mix each separately and THEN combine them. The result is a medium which sculpts like Green Stuff, dries like Miliput (though less brittle) and tends to hold sharp angles a little better than GS.

All in all, I am happy with it and look forward to getting some paint on it this week. I would love to hear what you all think.


  1. I have really been loving these conversions and paint jobs! Keep up the inspiring work. Also, 49.99 for the land raider?! Are you nuts? That's a low price for such a nicely done vehicle!

  2. I'm giving people a chance to get a bid in. Who knows, they could get it for a steal. In any case, I will be happy if it goes to somebody who would play with it. LRs have never really been my style outside of a very specific "Abbadon Left Tackle List" that I ran in 5th.

  3. How do you set your tentacles so neatly? Do you have a method of how to retain the shape and make a good connection that wont break?
