Alrighty then, after my current army of jungle-hive fighters which aren't really heavily converted (other then the storm troopers) I've been thinking of doing a mechanized tundra sort of army. What I'm thinking of is using catachan pants, with cadian torso and arms, cutting off the scopes from the lasrifles (i find it makes them look a bit longer, and a little more, basic). Finally for heads I would be using the pig iron winter heads : http://www.thewarstore.com/media/ss_size2/PIGHD11.jpg
Also, I would use the pig iron back packs : http://www.thewarstore.com/media/ss_size2/PIGEQ01.jpg
I think this should be a rather simple conversion work that will be good for a high troop amount mechanized army.
I was also thinking of using those cadian great coat bits from the command squad... but they're like 4 dollars a piece... and only come in one pose. I know i could green stuff some coats, but I suck so bad with that stuff...
Anyways, any suggestions? any pictures of people who have already done this?

I got a friend that uses those heads with normal cadians, otherwise unmodified.
And they look great!. Go for it.
Post pics too.
It is not realy difficult to make the heads out of GS:
You just make a cylinder out from green stuff, let it cured for a day and add on an other layer next day and with a pin just "pick and pull" and You`ve got the winter helmets or hats or what are they. You can do it on catachan heads if You have any (I guess as You have legs).
The cloaks can be made as the same on any kind of cloak or on a cured GS square that been attached already, just add a flat layer of GS and "pick&pull".
When You got to make an IG army with loads of figures You can save an other army`s price with this method.
Otherwise I love the linked heads and backpacks.
It is not a guard, but an Inquisitor I made recently from catachan legs+head with SM body+ars. The hat is made out of GS.
