Hi, i'm really interested in starting a death korps army, I already have a normal cadian army ive had for a bit now. However i find that Cadians are a bit boring and my favourite other models are the death korps. However, being only 14 i dont think that a personalized squad of ten warrants me paying 30 odd quid. So i'm going to have to look at alternatives. One of them being converting normal guard using pig iron heads. The two main conversion points are of course:
1. Heads, either: Untitled Document or Untitled Document
2. The next is trenchcoats, im not sure how i'm going to convert them. Any ideas?
Thanks for any help.
If you are willing to put the time and effort to model them then brother argos is doing a very similar thing in converting cadians into steel legion using greenstuff. Blog is on the modelling forum.
The other option would be to look at purchasing either steel legion or valhallan metal minatures and converting them.
I liek the pig iron heads infact they ahve been a bit of a thing going around these forums, i ahve got a loads of the ones in your first link for my guard myself. As for adding coats its a lot more difficult than it sounds. It will involve making your own from modeling putty, i would suggest checking out brother argos' thred its very good and will help.

Thanks, i'll check out the thread now.
Rep for you both.
Thanks danjones, i've just checked out his thread and its pretty amazing. I am considering looking at some of the pig iron models but i've also found this which is a bit of a wild card for the trenchcoats:
I'm not sure as not all of them look right and it might be a bit pricy if i have to buy lots of different box sets just for 10 men.
If you want greatcoats your best bet is to look at the brettonian men at arms, those have been used a couple of times and the results are very effective. i reckon combined with the pig iron heads from the first link and cadian arms they would look great.
Sometimes the best defense is a good offense... Wait, what?
Interesting, i've never heard that idea before but i may have to have a look. Thanks, rep for that.
I like Death Korps of Krieg as well, if I was to collect Imperial Guard it would have to be either them or Elysian Drop Troops. I like the Pig Iron heads, for the trench coats I suggest using the Empire Archers but buying them from Gifts for Geeks which sells pretty much everything Games Workshop does only cheaper. With the combination of the Pig Iron heads and the Empire Archers you should be able to make an army that looks convincingly like the Death Korps of Krieg.
