    Imperial Storm Trooper, as in star wars storm troopers

    How do you guys think it would look the Kaskin squad would look if they were basically painted white with black gloves, guns, joints and eyes? Is there a group of models that would look better that can be used as storm troopers without too much converting? And Next to the shining silver of the Grey Knights will white storm troopers look cool?



    PS I hate metal models...why do I want to play daemon hunters???

    I *do* think that all white & black IST would look good, but if you're literally trying to make them look like Stormtroopers... I don't see any resemblance, matching colors or otherwise.

    skull white armored plated ISTs.... sounds like it'd look pretty nice... your stormtroopers will probably wind up looking more like the scout troopers on return of the jedi (the ones on the bikes), but it should still work out more or less

    I painted my Kasrkin kind of like that. I painted the cloth areas black and the armor bleached bone (brown first, of course) with a drybrushing/highlight of skull white. They do look a little like the scout troopers from Jedi, although this was not my intention. Anyway, I think it looks cool.

    I've seen that done, a guy at my local workshop did an army with 6 10 man squads in an army, it looks very cool, all that was missing was 'march of the empire' on the cd player.
    Last time i checked for ep 3 release he was seeing if using necron power cores he could make a twilek lightsaber inquisitor......

    I have a friend who painted his Karskin for his deamonhunters to look like the strom troopers and it worked out quite well, although not as good as one of my other friends who built a 40k sized Boba Fett to lead them damn he was cool and he is probably one of the best conversions that i have ever seen.

    well since i wont be trying it due to lack of funds...

    in suprised noone else has though to make Jedi in Clone Trooper Armour (Clone Wars Series one the Arc Trooper episode where Obi is on the Bike Jousting)

    Think... dark angels Guys in Robes... Add a Storm Bolter To the Arm and a "light saber" with either Necron Bits or Lego antenna. Paint in brown robes with the White/Black Armour underneith.

    my only request is that if any of you guys undertake this, post the picks i realyl want to see how it would look, but just cant afford to do it right now...
    When all else fails, burn every one... or missile them back the Golden throne

    Evil Beware, we have waffles!

    I think regular cadians with a bit of green stuff helmet sculpting would make better storm troopers than kaserkin, the Star wars troopers dont have much hi tec gear on but the kaserkin are tooled out.
