Yes indeed.

What is he made from, you ask?

I dremeled down the detail on the Space Marine's torso, and did a little cutting in the back so it contoured a little more like trooper armor. Otherwise, it's a straight Space Marine with a 501st helmet sitting on the shoulders (it's not secured in any way). There's actually no head under the helmet, because I took it off for some reason. I'm going to glue the original head back on and paint it up like the 501st Airborne's helmet. I know the paint isn't an exact match for 501st blue (heck, without flash, it's even farther away from close), but this was just a quick, silly custom.

I don't actually play WH40K, by the way. I just build the minis in my off time.

"Gimme that, you little-!"

That is actually pretty bad *****. I don't really know what to critique, other than it's just plain awesome. Great imagination!!

The Emporer's idea of creating Mini-Clones was not without it's problems....

They were Shin Kickers. Once you were down, they stole your helmet and weapon.
