    Hi

    I have been doing some searching and drawing a blank. Perhaps this is the wrong part of this forum for this, if it is please let me know where I should be going.

    Anyway I am wondering what models are being used to represent the Brother Captain and GrandMaster in armies as well as what changes people choose to add. As far as I can tell there is no GW made model that is the GrandMaster and the only Bother Captain model is the one for Stern.

    Any advise and guidance appreciated greatly.

    Axit

    I use Stern as my GM.

    Its a nice model and he stands out from the rest of the GKTs.

    There is a regular Brother Captain model, he looks like a regular terminator but with some cloth and stuff.

    As for the GM, most use BC Stern, and "alot" (or atleast a few) have added wings (I use some kind of eagle wings, mEGALO uses swooping hawqs if I recall right)

    There have been a topic like this one a few weeks ago, can't remember what it was called though...

    There's a Search function on the forum for a reason. I searched for "Grand Master", and on the first page of results got both of these useful threads:
    Grand Master
    Suggestions for a GM
    You have four real options:
    -Convert the BC Stern model.
    -Convert a GK Terminator Brother-Captain model.
    -Convert a GK Terminator model.
    -Make your own.
    Everyone has their own ideas, and their own model for a GM. Using Stern or the GKT Brother-Captain as the base are the most common, by far. A simple arm swap can make a decent GM.

    Thanks for the response.

    This morning I found the Brother Captain model on the online store list in the details for the Terminator Squad box.

    Going to go to the topics mentioned above as I hope to find people mentioning which models they selected to convert to a nice GM. Right now I am looking for a cool base model and love to hear other peoples ideas.

    Following on from this - I am quite dissapointed to see that there is only one Justicar model for the GKPA squads - you'd have thought that they would have the decency to release at least two poses so that each of your required troop choices could have a different one each.

    Has anyone noticed that the plastic space marine sets for command group and for commander (by himself) contain some seriously nice weapons and bits ? The company champion model in the command group set has a helmet that is identical to a GK, and the commander has an arm option with the 'flared' shoulder pad, just like GK too.

    I was thinking about maybe having a hack with this lot for my second Justicar model.

    Anybody already had a go at this ? Any luck ? Sugestions ?

    I think the easiest way to make a "new" justicar is to greenstuff some robes into a regular GK, since that's the only difference between the models. Or use actual fabric and soak it in glue so it's preserved.

    I currently only have one squad of grey knights but when i get my second one I think i'll just give my justicar the NFW sword. In my first squad I gave him a halberd off one of the regular grey knights and gave the other grey knight the sword, it looks pretty good I think. (I used the halberd of the grey kight who is facing to the right.)

    i suggest using all of the above methods. i like to use arm swaps. the codex suggests that there is much more variability in what is used as a force weapon(see the description in the armoury..."axes") so i use many weaponry bits from the fantasy range - mix it up, the justicar need not have a sword etc. head swaps work well too, and are also realatively easy. of late i have been repositioning arms, and (if your more experienced as a converter - torsos, cut of the gk at the wase and at the greaves and use the plastic waist and upper thigh portion from a regular smurf (plastic) which is easy to reposition. this works for arms too. also, try using thin plasticard for tabbards/ banners/cloth/seals instead of gs. cut it in the shape you want and then (carefully) use a lighter to create folds etc. it takes practice but can be quite nice for long lasting stuff. add chain, imperial segals etc.
    same works for converting a termi to a bc or gm. i like to start with a regular termi as a "fresh palate." be sure to use a particularly ornate weapon for the force weapon :wub: . if you need tips/ideas pm me- i love conversions and i think im pretty damn good.

    How about using a spear for a NFW? I've never seen or heard of a GK model with a NFW in that shape but when I read Grey Knights by Ben Counter he mentions a Justicar with just such a weapon. I think it would be suitable for a GK hero because it is probably the least common type of NFW out there. I will just have to be sure to make its suitably ornate.
