I wanted to to do something different from the usual Indiana Jones and Star Wars diorama's and figure's. I started going thru all my magazines and came across the Games Workshop Catachan Codex and new right there and then that I was going to build a Catachan Soldier.

When the figure, equipment were ready and the base was built I painted everything using Vallejo and Games Workshop Paints and used dry brushing and Pastels for the weathering.

RECIPE

Body & clothing - The body I picked up of a website I don't know which company made it but I do recall it being a terrorist figure. The boots I've had in the bits box for ages and the trousers are from Sideshows Rebel Troopers, the t-shirt is from a WW2 Aussie digger figure and the scarf and bandanna are pieces of material.

Equipment - The Fuel tanks are German WW2 gas canisters and Stick Grenades with the tubing coming from other toy lines. The Flame Thrower is from a Final Fantasy figure and has been heavily modified using parts from other weapons ranging from WW2 to modern day parts. All the other pieces on the figure are from different figures which have been lying in my bits box.

Base - The base is foamcore with a piece of thick cardboard for strength, it has then had plaster of Paris with fine sand added to it. the grass is static grass which is used for model railways, the broken column is from a 7 inch Indy figure set and the plants are plastic which I got from the local pet shop.

Hi Guys
