Well, i havent really touched my warhammer models for about a year but i saw a trailer of Warhammer age of reckoning (something like that) and thought maybe i should get back into this stuff, so i looked into recrons.
They're cool and all with the robot thing but i dont like their skinnyness, when i think of a robot, i think of something like one of the transformers, something big and tanky, not these little skelaton things. So i found my old bits box from ages ago and i had alot of spare space marine parts. Then i had an idea, if i use necron heads and guns on space marines, i could have a tanky necron army. So i got a pen and paper and started writing out some ideas.
For warriors, ill have a space marine but with a necron gun and head.
For desroyers, ill have a space marine torso and arms, with a necron head, a converted destoyer gun thing and ill give him kinda like tank weels for legs. (heavy destoyers will be pretty much the same but with a bigger gun)
For tomb spiders, i could get some terminators (close ranged), give them the power claws and give him some spider legs made from gs.
Wraiths, i havent really thought of anything good but maybe i could use some space marine legs that assault marines have, maybe mess around with the soulder pads, i could make some ropey like arms with claws out of gs.
Scarab swarms can be golbins (from Warhammer fantasy) with some cyborg features, ill chuck 2 or 3 of them on a base.
EDIT: Seanchadith was right, they dont really suit it, so ill make little toy robots out of GS
well thats about as far as i got, ill save some money (might get some for christmas) and start this project. ill post pics when i have some ready

Hmm, I'm liking the ideas here very, very much. Just be sure to file or sand off all those eagles, skulls, crosses, etc, etc! lol
I shall subscribe to this thread that's for sure despite the terrible heresy you're inflicting on the warriors of Him!
The idea certainly sounds good. I mean if you haven't read the fluff on necrons and just look at the minis it's no surprise people say 'there not so tough lookin'!' *then gets flayed by gauss weaponry*
Good luck to you sir! I shall most certainly be watching the progress of this one!;Y
I like the idea, but you'll ave to make sure they don't just look like marines- so be sure to add conversions and get rid of the imperial symbols. You might experiment with Chaos marines, who have some interesting models.
One thing- why goblins? Where do they fit in to this? Seem a bit out of place.
