“You are here because the outside world rejects you. This is your family. I am your father. I want you all to become full members of the Foot.”

The Foot Clan gets further support in the form of additional ninjas. I had already painted the three available miniatures from Crooked Dice, but needed more. The Foot Clan almost always appears in larger numbers, three are simply too few. Since there are no more poses available, but I also didn’t want to mix with other manufacturers (there are original Foot Soldier from Heroclix available), I had to convert them. No sooner said than done. I’m not super skilled with Green Stuff and didn’t trust myself with any dramatic conversions, but for some variance it should be enough. In the pictures below you can see the original Crooked Dice sculpt on the right and my modest conversion on the left. The matrix-like jump in the middle is perhaps a bit silly, but in my memory the ninjas have always jumped up from manholes and down from elevations.

I am absolutely satisfied with the result. They are simply painted again and fortunately you can’t tell any difference from the first group that was painted almost a year ago. The conversions worked quite well and I got what I wanted. With 6 Foot Soldiers the clan is still not big, but I won’t rebuild more. It’s enough for an ambush and Shredder has a few more allies after all.
