I'm looking for something effective to create a couple of penitent engines out of. I won't be doing the work for a while (need funds) but I'm thinking sentinel legs for starters...
My main question is what scale are the warmachine minatures? and are there any sites where you can buy individual components rather than entire sets?
I'm looking at some of the Menoth warjacks, for things like arms and weapons, but don't really want to have to purchase the whole model.
Thanks in advance.
use a seninel for the bace and put forge world chaos dred arms on it (the buzz saw ones) cut of chaosy stuff and sculpt a heretic it would look so cool!!!

If someone helps you REP them...
By "effective" do you mean cost effective? If so, unless you can figure out a way to use all GW plastics, the regular metal Penitent Engines are going to end up cheaper than using Privateer Press bits on Seninel legs. You could do something like using Sentinel legs, positioning the base that the cockpit goes on to face forward and put some sort of a Penitent on it, but I have no idea what to use for arms. I don't know of anywhere that sells PP bits.
Warmachine minis can be pretty small and heavy for your purposes. And they don't look open topped.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
All right then cheers guys. Was just wondering if it was a possibility, wasn't really too worried about the cost, just everymodel in my army is converted and I was looking to keep it that way.
Back to the drawing board!
i personally love the penitent engine models, after my daemonhunters and my ever increasing list of projects ill be doing a WH army with 3 of em. if you really wanted to convert them, why not use the same models but do a change of pose. youd be surprised how much it changes the overall feel of the model just by angling an arm in a bit or something like that.
Yeah, I suppose reposing is still perfectly acceptable as a conversion, I'll have a look at conversion based on the original model then. Maybe leg or arm swaps could work possibly as well.
I think a crusading penitent engine would be rather cool, giving it a shield on one arm and then some sort of weapon in the other, like a large sword, even still the chainblade.....
As I said before the conversion is going to have to wait till late September anyway (hoorah for student loan), so I have plenty of time to muse.
P.s. How does it make sense that a marine dreadnought is £25, while a metal penitent engine is £20? Stupid pricing system.

because people buy heaps of plastic dreadnoughts as they can be applied to all marine armies (even some chaos ones) while the penitent is only for WH. supply and demand
