Tried searching the forum and didn't get any results for this topic so here it goes. For my next army I'm doing a Radical Daemon Hunters list, possibly themed off of the popular videogame Resident Evil (Inquisitor Wesker)
Although I am prepared to spend $, I'd rather use it on my heavily converted retinue, assassins and the like and am wondering how to make stormtroopers on the cheap. I'd put this on the daemonhunters forum, but I figured you IG players would have a better grasp of the unit and are more familar with the models. I was thinking just convert Cadains, but I'm planning on using an inducted platoon or two to serve as R.P.D.
And thanks for reading.
I think I heard rumors that when the new IQ codex comes out (Spring?), some more plastic models might be released too (like Storm Troopers). They will therefore be cheaper and easier to convert.
Well, since you mentioned you are doing some converting, if you are decent with greenstuff you can add knee and shoulder pads to Cadians. This makes them look like they have carapace. Paint them differently than other troops and you have stormies.
Or ebay someone else's bad paint jobs.
RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
The rumor is that they are going to come out with box sets of plastic stormies in May, along with the new Codex. So if you can wait that long they will more then likely be cheaper
Maybe you can replace their heads? Catachan heads on Cadian bodies, anyone? Or probably the simplest way is to paint your stormies slightly different from your Cadians (maybe red helmets, carapace, and should pads or something like that).
Your best bet for cheap ST is cadians shock troops. They looks "bulky" enough (compared to the other lines of IG) to pass as 4+ saves.
However, like others have said, *plastic* storm troopers are coming soon Combine that with valkyries and you got some fun stuff that you may want to consider purchasing in May.
Hey thanks for the replies everyone. My wallet thanks you
Now in regards to new IG stuff in May... Are these legit? I've been loosely following the rumors on LO but they are just rumors right? Or did GW confirm them?
