basically i used some of my imperial guard and catachans to make sm scouts that look different. just takes a bit of clipping and pop a bolter/bolt pistol in. im sure you guys have thought of this and im going to be yelled at but if you have any pics i would like to see (would show mine but my scanner is misbehaving.) and i was wondering if i would be thrown out for using them in a game. also made some scouts snipers by clipping the barrels off of the cadian lasguns and raplacing it with a longer catachan version.

a rather nice idea. but i think this should be in the conversion corner.
What i did was just took some imperial guard snipers and used them as snipes for my SM as i like to take 6.
You must be like the Ocean, not the Tiger. The Tiger might spring at a mountain and claw the ever living crap out of it, but it is the Ocean who will slowly wear down the Mountain.
This Could Be The Most Amazing Model I Have Ever Seen
I did the same thing.Originally Posted by shiruken
Rather than try to actually make SM scouts with sniper rifles that look different than the (what 3) stock ones GW makes, i just use catchan models.
They make for good sargeants too.
We all carry on,
When our brothers in arms are gone.
So raise your glass high
For tomorrow we die,
And return from the ashes you call.
First off, kicking this to the conversion corner.
As for diffrent scouts, I've seen alot of good conversions based on Imperial guard and Imperial guard/Space Marine combinations.
The best conversion though are a Imerial Guard/Space Marine combination.
You can find a nice picture of it here and another one here.
isn't this why we all bought ig sprue??
but yeah cadian sprues makes better looking sm scouts than GW metal ones I think
also you might want to put green stuff on the las guns turning them into shotguns if you ever use thouse.
Marauders also work well as a base for the more barbaric chapters. Prophet Miniatures has some very nice scouts built from marauder and Space Wolf bitz as well as a good guide. Click on "Articles" and "Build a Better Scout" to find it.
