I cant say i have a lot of converted models in may sob's list seeing as my greenstuff skills are lacking. but i plan on getting the Forge world sob rhino doors Forge World WITCH HUNTERS and for the most part all the Conversions i have in mined for my sob's are for my rhinos if i fill i need more flamers in my squads ill track down sum old Canoness models with the combi-flamer and convert them to be sister superior's.
so please post your Conversion ideas and show off your army that is the point of this weeks Topic after all.
I have a "counts as" thing going on. Instead of the Sisters of Battle, I have the War Rats of Cheddar. Havn't gotten all the parts yet, but I'm going to be using Skaven for everything. Plague Monks for the Celestians, Warplock Engineer for the Canoness, Clanrats for Inducted Guard, and Night Runners for Storm Troopers. It's gonna be awesome.

War rats of Cheddar...omgwtfbbq....
I'm working on a few conversions, nothing fancy really. I won't finish them this week, so no pics, (maybe in the near future) but here's two things I'm currently working on:
Eviscerators - Well, the only real eviscerators you can find are on the canoness and repentia, so I don't use the originals (throwing away 5/6 of a model would be a shame). But I found out that the chainswords of CSMs actually have about the right size and feel for them. They're bigger and more massive than SOB standard chainswords and just look huge on them models.
File down those chaos symbols and you're good. Also I'm thinking about building my own version of the two-bladed chainsword (Darth Maul like). I saw a pic of that somewhere once and thought it was a nice idea.
Exorcists - By fluff definition in the codex every exo is unique. So just buying 3 GW exo models seemed unfluffy to me. So currently I'm building 1 GW exo, 1 FW exo and one conversion. Base is a Immolator box with the small rhino turret in front (as fire guidance/tank commander/spotter) and the immo tower in the back with the flamers detached. Instead of the flamers I'm putting on typhoon missile launchers from the land speeder sprue (got them at a bitz shop for about a dollar). Now tilt back the whole Typhoon turret a bit with GS and boom, exo will be ready. (I hope)
Kill the mutant! Purge the unclean!
Here are some of my conversions =D
This is my Cannoness that I use most often. Converted from Celestine (as if you couldn't tell >.>). Pretty easy and I think it looks nice. Cannoness Evicerator and Inferno pistol, a sera backpack, and a little greenstuff.
This is my secondary cannoness. That thing is a blessed weapon that I call the Star Halo. It's was really easy to make. It's basically a dwarf flag bearer hand bit with Celetine's Halo and a little green stuff. Luckily dwarf hands are just the right size =D
Ok, this next one is a favorite amungst my friends. His name is Captain Lazerbeard. He is a Daemonhunter Inquisitor. This was a challenge. I had to remove the head from a Grey Knight Terminator, which as you all know have 2+/5++ saves. After I got the best I could with it, I took a dwarf head ("head" they're only 2 pieces xD), shaved it down to a fitting size and used a little greenstuff to get in in place and look natural. After that I once again took a dwarf flag carrier and used his hand/arm. It was origionally going to be a thunderhammer, but it's pretty much just decoration now. I say it's a Divining Rod and use it as an auspex when I need to xD
This is his most trusted henchman. I've been meaning to improve upon it, but it's basically a bit (rocket launcher I think) from one of my vehicles that I greenstuffed to his arm and then glued some ammo to his arm isntead of a hand xD It's a plasma cannon.
This is my exorcist. Really simple, bought a whirlwind, made the pods separate and put them on the back sides, then took the turret and used yet another Celestine Halo to make it look special. I've been meaning to remove the greenstuff on the front there. I don't even know why I put it there because it looks aweful.
This is just something I put together using a celstine cloak and a useless stormbolter model. It's just a low point cost inq when I need one and can't use Cpt Lazerbeard cause of points.
This is my latest creation and took quite a bit of work and is actually a remake of a past one that looked dreadful. This started out as a seraphim verteran and you know what, I think it turned out looking good. Next is paint once I get more primer.
I work with what I have because really, I don't have much cash, and it works out well because I get unique models.
Now that I think about, I do want to start a Sob army, maybe with some of those crazy hat/hoods. You know, the ones that the KKK stole from Spain or something.
Maybe if I don't get shot for just showing something that looks slightly anti-anything.
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
I've set a few pieces aside to convert an old rhino chassis for the sisters - the spare penitent from the PE set fits perfectly onto the front and with a little filing the old hero quest tomb scenery piece slots into the top hatch space.
Should make a nice HQ immolator, i'll post it up when I eventually get around to finishing it
I also cut the stormbolter off a model to put an old landspeeder heavy flamer in it's place. It was a pretty good fit, though it took forever to remove the original gun.

Will post some pics up later once the camera is charged.. but..
The double blade evis (darth maul style) was mine, but now don't use evis vss so never use the model anymore..
Just made an exorcist today from some typhoon launchers and an immolator, not painted but looks so cool already
Made a nice DH inquisitor
Converted a combi-flamer canoness into a combi-melta vss (that was hard )
Got lots to do though, pics up tonight
I've made many a serpahim base conversion, and minor alterations to vehicles etc, but actual full body conversions espescially with the SOB troops is quite tricky, not only being metal, but more so due to the pose that the vast majority are in, with the gun pulled tightly into the body, head attatched firmly with the armour collar etc...
backpack conversions I suppose, minor leg changes.... I do like the idea of building a new canoness..
as promised here are a few pics of the exorcist i have just made, well happy with it so have ordered another load of typhoon launchers, only 50 pence for each set
so far it is just base coated and have highlighted the black, still a long way to go on the painting
and here is one of my inquisitor you may have seen on the painting forum
Where do you get the typhoon launchers from for just 50p?? very cool conversion, nice work...
