I want to model my Delaque necromunda gang with the cool trench coats they are known for. So far aside from the original models I haven't really found anything acceptable. I would really like to model my own, and I am not above making my own coats. I was wondering, before I go about this huge ordeal if anyone knew of any coat-wearing models that would be easily convertible. Or if not a model that would be a good base to build the coat over. Something that has either no armor or is only lightly armored is preferable.
Have you seen Death Korps of Kreig from Forge World? I think every single mini in the range wears a trenchcoat. Could be useful.
I figured I would get death core and steel legion advice. They are wearing gas masks, and cool as that may be it is not exactly what I had in mind. Thanks, but I should have been more specific.
Its all about gang wars, so they really aren't that well armored. I am looking for more matrix-esque trench coat wearers. Sunglasses-at-night-wearing, guns-blazing, run-up-the-wall badassness. Hardened fighters who use their coats to conceal hidden weapons and use their stealth to their advantage.
If you have the money. Get some DKOK, get some Necromunda weapon arms and some different heads from where ever and do your thing. Same thing with Steel Legion but they are metal but just as expensive lol.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LOOK AT MY BLOG!
Rep people if they help you!!!
The only other model wearing a trenchcoat that I can think of at the moment is the imoerial commissar and needless to say that would require some pretty hefty converting to make it look right. On the whole I think You'll either have to greenstuff the coats yourself on an appropriate model or wait until the new guard come out sometime next year.
Edit: If you have the funds you could use the DKOK models and simply do a headswap rather than keep the gas masks. That way you'll end up with proper looking trenchcoats but no gas masks. (Mind you, cutting resin is generally less than suggestable. )

I know a couple of websites for non G.W miniture companies that might have what you need.
first is this one,
and you could try this one
Foundry 28mm Street Violence
if none of these are to your taste then you can always just try some simple searches are on google,
G.W are not the only mini company.

You can try to make your own trenchcoats. I have found that an easier way to do it is to start with tissue paper or toilet roll (unused) soaked in PVA, you may need to add some water to the PVA to get it to soak into the tissue paper. Put this onto the model in the shape of the trenchcoat and wait for it to dry. This is used as the basic skeleton for the trenchcoat. If things seem to go wrong remember that it is just tissue paper and PVA and can be easily discarded.
Once this is dry you can use some putty, I think milliput is best for this kind of work. Use the putty and smooth it over the surface of the tissue paper/PVA mix. This can be used to give you a smoother result. Before the paper actually dries though you will find it is easy to manipulate. This may help you to add trenchcoats to your models without having to expend huge amounts of green stuff.
