Stormtroopers conversion 5: other six troopers ready for war

Other six Imperial Guard Stormtroopers ready for war! Four of them require a big conversion and a lot of work, I didn't imagine before starting. The last two, with meltaguns, need only some colour adjustment.

Imperial Guard Stormtrooper throwing frag grenade and a basic one:
Stormtrooper throwing grenade was a possible Sergeant candidate, because of surveyor/auspex and other equipment. He needed just a sabre/sword in the right hand. How you can see the colour scheme of backpack grenades, he remains a trooper. I've reduced the lenght of right hand fingers and renewed his face.
I wanted other Stormtrooper to make firing, but it was not possible... because of two grenades restriction to hot-shot lasgun inclination.

Stormtroopers firing with plasmagun and hot-shot lasgun:
Two Imperial Guard Stormtroopers in firing position. Basic position, but necessary. They require a lot of green stuff work, for sculpting left arms.

Now only the Stormtrooper Sergeants remain....
Last two conversions, one of them (left) not so easy. Continue...

Upgrading Imperial Guard Stormtroopers' Chimera 2: armoured skirts and track guards

After the turrett, I start working on the whole Stormtroopers' Chimera.

Test: I've turned up the armoured skirt. Now the new Chimera profile is better, more aggressive. Note that Chimera turret must be replaced in the original position, on the right of the hull.
Armoured skirts and track guards come from old Space Marine Rhino/Predator/Vindicator metal armoured ones.

Black primer on Chimera turret, here with Stormtroopers hotshot lasguns and plasmaguns.

Chimera crewman painted with the same colour scheme of Stormtroopers.

Starting with track guards, too, shaping plastic pieces as armour plates.

Right flank almost finished. Compare the two side of tank with track guards and armoured skirts replaced.

Turret compartment placed in the original position. Note the white glue to save green stuff.
