I wan't to add balaclavas to my storm troopers and I don't see any plausible bits in the Citadel or FW ranges. I'll possibly nip down to my local model shop and see what they have.
Does anyone else mix in non-GW bits? Given the similarity between IG and modern and/or WW2 stuff.
I have used bits from all kinds of different models. the biggest issue I've found though is that a lot of models don't have the same level of detail. also, GW seems to have it's own thing going on as far as scale goes so some things (such as heads)don't necessarily line up as nicely as I would like. Finally, I don't know about other people, but I always find I have an abundance of bits left over to play with so...
I have stacks of sprue spares, I just fancied using balaclavas on my stormies as I am giving them infiltrate rather than deep strike, just don't seem to see anything viable......
I picked up some heads from West Wind Productions from their "Separate Head System" range.
Here's a sneak peek at one of my Hardened Vets (and what the rest of the army will look like)

I use steel legion gass masks and Sentinel goggle pilot heads for my hardened veterans, as wel las whatever can find. I have some German army officer hats, and German Army helmets for my platoon commanders. Instead of missile launchers, I use the good ol' Panzerfaust!!
