Kingdom Death Chibi Survivors

I've been showing off the conversions from my Chibi Kingdom Death set for a while now- but I realize that I've neglected to post up good pictures of the survivors that I've made. Here is a group of them.

 Since this is an ongoing project, I'll be continuously making more, so there will never be a final "all of them together" post. The conversions range between custom basing and extensive resculpting.

  Chibi Kingdom Death Alistair

Alistair uses the head from Sebastian Cross- I had an extra since I used Cross' body for my Kingsman. His body comes from a Mistmourn Shaman, with his skirt sculpted on, and his weapons come from Kingdom Death sprues. I really liked the idea of painting his eyes to match the prologue, even though he's clearly a Lantern Year 2+ survivor (since he's not barefoot, and has a bone blade).

  Chibi Kingdom Death Zachary

For Zachary, I wanted a survivor that was a little more muscular than scrawny Alistair, so I used the body from Yokozuna (I still have the head for making a Sun Priest later).


Rail Raiders Infinite's Rhinestone took me by surprise. She just looked perfect for Kingdom Death, and just needed a color scheme that would work with the set.


 It seemed wrong not to make a version of the crossover Candy and Cola for my Chibi Kingdom Death set. The head comes from Candy, and I found the best body to start from was a Shrine Ninja Kunoichi. Much of her skirt is sculpted on. I would have put Cola on her skirt, but I got to thinking that he should be his own survivor. I haven't finished his conversion yet, but I'll make sure to share it.

  Chibi Kingdom Death Plague doctor

The Plague Doctor doesn't seem like the most natural mini to make for Chibi Kingdom Death. I was looking through my bits box one day, and I found an old Rackham goblin, and I could see all of the conversion that I'd need to make. For his color scheme, I decided to make a tribute to the Shovel Knight villain/hero Plague Knight. I'll probably do a couple other Shovel Knight characters as well (Specter Knight would make a good survivor as well).


I've posted him before, but here is my first False Messenger- the Messenger of Humanity. Until they have their own rules, they're playing as survivors. He was made from a Yamazaru Ninja. I did quite a few things to him- sculpted his cape and head wrap, swapped out his weapons, and gave him a sheathed twilight sword on his back.


And here's the girl who started it all. No changes to her except for the chibi face base. I bought the resin resculpt of her as well, and I have to say that it is a clearly superior sculpt and cast. Honestly, already having a twilight knight to fill the role has kept me from painting up a second one, so I'm considering what sort of twilight knights I could convert her into. At the moment, I'm oscillating between making her a cat for the Neko Twilight Knight or giving her a costume as the Halloween Twilight Knight.

Kingdom Death Dragon King

The dragon king is a very majestic mini. Like most Kingdom Death minis, he's exquisitely detailed, and simply oozes character. In addition, he's also large enough that it is hard to get a photograph of him that keeps everything in focus.

 I was very happy to have a chance to paint him up. I got to do a lava face base for him (something that I'll probably do something like this on my own Dragon King when I get around to painting him up).

 But enough words:
