Do you guys think using the cadian shock troops as IST would work or am I stuck paying for the IST?
thanks for the replies and other ideas for plastic IST would be helpfull to.
i thinking about doing the same thing only i will probly convert them like gas masks or something
If you're willing to put the work into converting the Cadians to look like IST, then by all means use them, just give them sufficient kit to show that these guys have looked a bloodletter in the eye and not evacuated their colon.
You could do the same even with catachan if you felt like it, they have a similarity to those sweet beret wearing stormtroopers from the days of yore.
They do have to look a bit beefier, as they have better armor and the special power pack for the helgun.
If you already play IG you will have a bunch of vox caster backpacks left over. Modify them a bit, and drill a hole so you can feed a think wire from the backpack to the lasgun to make it a helgun. Add a scope or something somewhere for a targeter. Add some platicard on the thighs for carapace armor, and green stuff in the eye area of the faces to make it look like blast visor eye protection like the storm troopers have.
all i do is make the lasgun double barrelled and they look good enough and no one has complained about it,i dont agree with paying £25 for ten models when they most likely going to be in the casulty pile quite early on.
