Hey hey peoples of the modeling can you share your thoughts on these ideas?
Just started my 5th ed army (=][=, ISTs and GKs) and have always wanted to have a pimped out Forge world / converted army but due to lack of funds FW is definatly out lol! To this end ive been given some ideas but just wanted to run em by everyone to get a general opinion or any surgestions to improve upon these ideas. Heres a run down of units and there conversions :-
Grey knight terminators - Convert them?! heathen! They r beautiful models but ive given them awsome bases so they look even better. The bases were made by buying a citys of death building and tearing it apart. £15 worth of building goes a long way.
Grey knights - Same as above.
=][= - Using the new termi chaplin ive cut out the skull head and replaced it with a SM comanders bare head. Need to model a psychic hood outa green stuff and get rid of the chaps weapons.
ISTs - Credit to the imperial guard section for this one. SM scouts with plastic cadian arms and weapons. Ive a few special weapons lieing around so i get lots of heads and arms to mix and match.
2 x Rhinos - Heres the tricky one. Ive 2 Rhinos doing nothing and would like to make use of em but like i said above i wanted lotso FW stuff including dozer blade, extra armour and =][= symbols. As these rhinos are already made i cant add the extra armour or the symbols so it would be very difficult and expensive to do. Then an idea hit me, VINDICATORS. They come with all the bits for EA and have a dozer blade only difference being i will use the rear ramp and windscreen off the rhino sprue (i kinda like the vents that go on top) in stead of the cannon and loader arm thing off the vindicators sprue. All that for £25? Yes please!
GK Dread - I am ordering the MK IV one off the net as its drop dead gorgeous.
GK Land Raider Crusader - Waiting for the new model but is there any real need to convert this? If i do it will be somthing like GW did for Marneus Calgars LR with lots of detail in the finish. Any ideas welcome on this one.
Lastly i will be getting the etched brass for GK/=][= for detail. Ive had no exp with the etched brass, anyone got any comments on the stuff?
That about covers everything. Not the perfect converted army but enough to make it feel unique. Any and all help is most apreciated.
It sounds really cool and effective! Pictures would be nice whenever you can. However, from what you have told us the army sounds very nice.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
I'll go and pinch my mates camera and take some snaps soon.
ISTs are under constuction and ive just learnt that cadian arms do not fit around SM scout bodys, d'oh! At least im slightly proficiant with green stuff to fill in the (rater large) gaps.
=][=s head is now a dark angels comanders head which was kindly donated, the one with the feathers coming out either side. Green stuffing the storm bolter to make it into a psy cannon. Cut off the chaps power weapons head and going to repace it with somthing (going to get the brassed etch so mabey the =][= logo).
Not bought the FW GKDread or the vindicators but the idea for using the vindicators for rhinos is scraped. Im going to order the dozer blades of FW but attempt and lose my virginity im the use of plasticard by making the extra armour and inquisitorial logos out of it. Same goes for the Land raider, mucho experimenting with plasticard and at 60p a sheet i can mess around at my hearts content.
Try and get pics up soon.
