I need Your opinion, before I convert my good looking army to this:
In fluff-wise they are from a desert planet, but I am realy not sure if that looks ok, or just a crap.
I would do a Frank Herbert`s Dune type army, with loads of cables on the powerarmour, an extended face attachment, maybe a small tube between the backplate and the backpack with cables from the neck area and from the bottom area.
I am just simply not certain if a ghutra (that is the arabic headwear) is good on a helmet.
That is the prototype, I did not spend time with the painting, and I am not a good painter yet.
I think that the idea is nice, I am a Dune fan as well and I like desert-themed armies (maybe I will collect a Tallarn army in the future... maybe).
I don't think the headgear looks weird... after all, Dark Angels have hoods over their helmets.
If you want to save time, I guess you can use the hooded DA heads as the starting point for your conversion... just add a strip of green stuff around it, maybe fill the gap over the forehead with green stuff, and I think it is ok.
If you want to use green stuff to do the headgears, maybe this tutorial can help you... it is for Black Templars, but I guess you can easily adapt it.
About the cables, they don't look too good IMO (their shape is too irregular).
I would use bass strings (or metal wires, if bass strings are too thick for you) instead of green stuff, I think they would look better and save some time.
The facemask is the detail that worries me the most.
The face is a focal point for a mini, and the green stuff conversion you did doesn't have enough detail IMO... looks like a piece of cloth. Hey, I think this can be a good idea!
A piece of cloak over the mask, with the cables disappearing under it...
Hope this helps, good luck with your army and post some pics once you have done!

I got to agree even if I would not, but You said the truth...
For me is far easier to imagine then do a conversation.
The face mask is not good, I will try to find other solution, maybe I`ll leave this and do only cables. Or there is a common thing to cover the whole face in the desert and with this I can simply skip the mask. Good point You made.
I was thinking about the plastic cover of old earphones, I have some spare ones. But if I`ll be lucky I can get some strings as You mentioned. they also be better for the strips as detalied, so I just have to greenstuff the hoods. Yeee-haaaah!
Thanks for the link, it is very useful. I also had the answer, so the basic idea is not bad (the quality is bad yet, but I`ll work on it.)
Thanks, Your opinion was a big help.
