He already looks great! The only thing I can see that still looks unfinished is the axe. Speaking of which, I'm very interested in what's happening with the axe blade: that very light tint of colour is intriguing.
Axe does need a little more paint and time, and a wash or two in the right spot. The glow on the blade was a decision made over having ice on the blade itself (a personal preference, but I think an axe covered in ice reflects poor maintenance before it being so magically powerful to freeze the air around it) and I just did that with a light dry brush of a variety of light blues.
But yes; an extreme juggernaut conversion I'll see if I can find my progression pictures and put it together in an album!
Sadly I can't find most of my photos, but I did get one I could use for my WIP:
Raw materials: - 1 extreme juggernaut kit. - Moulding plaster/ putty - the medal from Beast 09 (I took it off my original B09) - plasticard sheet (not unlike this sort of material) - One plastic tube (maybe 0.4cm in diameter)
1.) Plasticard sheets were cut to form shoulder pads and knee/ groin pads. The material is fairly easy to work with, but cutting through it took some work to look right. I had more than a few poor cuts, but thankfully I had plenty of material to work with so a few off cuts weren't bad.
2.) Plaster/ putty was used to create the collar around the back of 09's head, and the anvil next to the smoke stacks, as well as the chops on the side of his jaw, and groin plate. Spikes were added atop the shoulder pads with putty as well.
3.) A plastic tube is sliced to make very thin hollow disks (not unlike rings). I glued two to 09's thighs to emulate the rings. I cut another ring into smaller bits to look like the bits holding the rings to the thigh plates.
4.) And finally I attached the medal which sized up nicely.
It wasn't so bad; I got the tiny juggernaut from someone who didn't want theirs, and I picked up the extreme juggernaut at a tournament. It did take AGES to find an appropriate child that looked like it'd be holding a soft toy juggernaut though...

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? I am incapable of processing this statement. I love the little guy so much I bought two of them, and now I have two copies of some ugly dude with a brush that I don't know what to do with.
Funnily enough I've been (unofficially) using one of the tiny critters as Beast 09 myself; our two Beasts are at the exact opposite ends of the size spectrum!
