Old Runequest Miniatures: Scorpion Men (Beastmen conversions)

Hello all,
Along with the old Runequest Dragonnewts (pictured here), I also got some fun looking Scorpion men. I initially bought them because I thought they were variants of the old "Runequest Box 4: Beast Men - Scorpion Man with Club". 
Unfortunately, they were not and are two pretty crappy conversions, or rather destructions of the originals - the clubs ares gone, shields have been inexpertly added, and bothhave received (even more inexpertly) a new beastman head. 
I've been working on them with green stuff to hide most of the old conversion and have added a little something special to them to make them more Slaaneshi - I think they have, under the circumstances, turned out just fine :-):

The distinct claws were bought - after much searching - from an online bitz-shop.

The purple should tie them in with the Slaaneshi warband nicely, but I guess that the browns could have used a bit more variation.

The original scorpion men looks like this:

The beastman head used for Mr. Scorpion Man #2 (below) may have been a skeletal head originally - not sure. If anyone can identify where these heads originate I would appreciate the information.

I've left this scorpio's shield blank until inspiration strike me for a motif.

Considering the circumstances I think they look effective, and - if you don't look too closely - they look nice :-).

All the best,
Kasper
