Col Iron Hand Strakov.... err.. Straken

Here's my version of Col. "Iron Hand" Straken, ala Vostroya.  I call him Strakov.  I've had this guy around for a while now but hadn't posted him, though I did enter him in a contest over at Miniature Wargames Conversions.  Ron's excellent Cadian Straken over at From The Warp inspired me to do a post on this guy, finally.

I started with the Vostroyan officer with a Power Sword and Plasma Pistol. To represent his bionics I replaced one foot with a with the foot of a necron warrior.  For his power sword arm, I used the bionic arm from the Space Marine captain sprue.  I cut off the chain-sword blade with the original Power Sword blade from the Vostroyan offfcer model.   Since Straken also carries a shotgun, I added an Empire repeater handgun to represent the shotgun; I think it gives a nice Steam-punk look that I've always associated with Vostroyans.

And finally a few pics of the Colonel all painted up.

Nice work. I've always thought the Vostroyans had a great look to them.
