I am thinking of converting a few Mech Warrior figures into Dreadnoughts. I will be able to use the legs off of these mechs and most of the weapons and Arms. As the bodies are different I was thinking of making the center boddy from plastic card and using one of those xl basis I have from my heavy weapons teams.
Anyone doen a project like this for an Ultramarine army or have any thoughts on how to go about doing this?
you could use the THOR mech, it doesnt have those chicken legs(i dunno) like some others. plus it has an awesom missile rack and a cool looking plasma cannon thing.
I haven't used Mech models for my conversions, but I have scratch-built quite a lot of vechivls...
-The mech models are good. I think the weapons and the legs are the most useful parts from them. Try using the legs as arms! Some mechs have strange thin legs... but they are finely detailed, so can be used as arms.
-Pay attention to the balance! If you make the main body from plasticard it can easily make the whole model unstable! (Usally the center of gravity is outside the main body in this case)
-YOu could use the mechs main body if you convert 2-3 them together...
