Modified WoTR Foot Men-at-Arms WIP, Perry Miniatures - Part 3 of 10

This is a slightly more complex alternation but using the both arms from the original weapon set. The original arm weapon combination comes as one piece (as shown below). It's quite difficult to describe how this was achieved but hopefully the photos will be of help.

The left arm and sword were separated from the right arm and then the left hand was cut away and angled and rotated so that the sword rested against the figures left shoulder. The pommel was recreated using a small blob of greenstuff.

As the armour for the the in this set are so distinctive I used the right arm as well. The upper and lower right arm were both cut away so the the elbow would point backwards in a more natural looking position.

After looking that the figure I decided the right arm didn't look quite right so I cut off the forearm and angled it downwards. The resulting gap was infilled using greenstuff.
The images below show a figure made up of unaltered parts straight off the sprue to show the difference. I have since altered the appearance of this figure as well but will detail that it in a later post.
