Give It up or Turn It loose

My Avatar was converted, based, primed and ready to hit the painting table and yet I still felt like I could have done more. After posting my progress on the Privateer Press forums the same comment kept cropping up like the proverbial cowbell "Fine, but needs more minaret." Then in my hour of darkness, Godfather Brown came to me. Speaking words of wisdom, Give It Up or Turn It Loose. I decided than rather than settling I would try to Mosque out my Avatar a bit. I turned it loose and here is the result of my first night's work.

Things are still very rough, but you get the picture. I'll be sanding the milliput dome to get it nice and smooth and evened out. I also plan on adding some thin minaret style spires (if I can find somewhere on the model where it would make sense for them to be). I have lots of things I would like to be able to do to imitate some of the more famous mosques in the world, but the biggest issue is real estate on the Avatar's back. So do you think I made the right move or did I just butcher a neato conversion?

  1. So long as you do something similar to the front I think it'll look good - but the huge roof thing over its head needs some love if this is going to work.
