A bodyguard like Sarjent Blas Gaspar, in fact.
This figure has been on my 'to do' list for well over 12 months. I wanted a big guy to accompany Lord Greiss, and this figure fits the bill.
Sarjent Blas Gaspar is clad in the yellow and blue livery of House Ulanti. He has been rewarded for loyal service with a bionic leg (albeit a crude one), and a terrifying power maul.

The model itself is converted from a variety of sources. The legs are space ork bionik legs. The torso was provided from an old 1980s Citadel Lord of the Rings Dunlending model. The pouches come from the RTB01 Space Marine kit, while the hand flamer comes from the Confrontation weapons sprue. Finally, the er, big, shiny maul is from the Dark Angels Ravenwing Command kit.
I deliberately kept the fur covered shield and tribal elements on the figure - the 'techno-savage' is a look I'm fond of, and there's plenty of precedence for it in a Necromundan / Rogue Trader setting.
After a little bit of greenstuff to cover the join, Sarjent Gaspar was ready to go!
