    Replica's - An imperial guard project

    So heres the thing. Iv recently started collecting Imperial Guard again (my last Guard army was when i was in year 6/7, 10 years ago !!), but i realy dont want to collect any of the curent regiments.

    After mulling it over i have decided to try and do something similar to the Replica Batalions from the F.E.A.R series, specificaly F.E.A.R 2. There is a decent amount of conversion potential here in the form of Power Armour suites to replace Sentinals, and Elite Power armour troops to replace Tanks. Heavy Replica troopers can be converted from Stormtroopers with a little work, and the current Cadian Sprue looks prety similar to the Standard Replica Soldier.

    The only Problem i am seeing at the moment is converting a head. Replicas almost entirely wear face masks that cover the entire head, that are then linked into the armour with a respirator tube. Im not great with green stuff so i was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what i can use for heads?

    If you arent familiiar with Replica's, then the below images should help clarify, the first is of an Elite Power armour suite, the second is of a Replica showing their armour and head, and the third is a replica's mask.

    Any help would be apretiated.

    Thanks

    as most people will tell you, I would suggest looking through the pig iron near future heads, particularily the full visored one i think would look good with them
