With my first post in the modeling part of these forums, comes my first ever attempt at doing anything that you would call converting, (unless you want to count the time i painted a ball of blutac green and stuk it to my necron Lord).
I dug out my old, and very poorly painted, 3rd edition Space Marines. I chopped parts from 5 of them, stuck them all together, then attacked it with a craft knife and a pin drill. The end result, an objective marker in the form of an injured SM.
I've still not made my mind up about whether should try stripping him or to just go straight into painting him how he is, I'll also want to find out how to get a good 'blood spilling out of him' effect as though he's been mortally wounded in such a way that not even his enhanced bio-engineering can stay the hand of death, I'm think red food colouring and PVA glue, maybe?
we use waterbottle caps for our objectives
it looks good
what are you going to paint it as
I'm working on a second one at the moment, who I want to look like he's had his arm blown off by a lascannon or something equalling as powerful, I just need to figure out how this would look
Nice pose for being knocked on the ground, I'd like to see something done with the cuts in the armor but still cool and I always approve of sticking it to GW employees. ;]

That's good looking. I think that making objectives is more fun than using the small, day glow things. A wounded Marine is a good idea for Marines. You could try to glue him to a base sometime as that will mean measuring who is closest and who gets the objective at the end of the game will be easier. Reppy for you and your marker.
