Welcome to Librarium Online!
I wanted to retain the original War Walker look, while making it a lot more fluid (the original pose is just standing there, waiting to get shot). Also, the main thing in this conversion was to remove the fantastical aspects of the weapons (starcannon looks decided "Eldary"), and make the model more militaristic, and less "magical", in line with my converted army's theme. Of course, just converted this out of interest.. it probably won't be painted for a while.. a while being "until war walkers don't suck".

Looks like a good start... first thing I noticed tho was where is the power unit or loading mechanism?
Might want to add something there if not still will definately look unique
now its all in the paint....

I'd scale down the gun a bit, the barrel definately looks too big. Otherwise, nice job

certainly look brutal enough, not really Eldar kind of design but youÂ´ve already stated you werent going for that. good job :yes:

While I'm not digging the conversion that much, I really like this:Bonus rep to you.Originally Posted by red120
i'd ve probably changed the legs to a pair of the old epic titan legs and probably have replaced the head and chest with the crew compartment.
but i'dve kept the shoulder wings though.
on the actual piece though nice job with the repositioning the parts but i agree with the above, the barrel is way too big for that model.

Very nice, i like the fluidity and movement on the model, but as others have said, scale down the gun - it looks a bit too big, even if that is the style, and maybe add some loading mechanisms/energy cells. Maybe also close off the crew compartment if you want it to look really non-eldarish, but that's up to you.

The cable connector at the back will be painted as energy flow (internal), since the weapon is still going to be energy weapon. I don't really have any idea for external energy cells, that's why the cable is running to the leg of the mech. Presumably, it can draw the energy from a internal core.
And yeah, I think many people will feel the gun's barrel is too large, but that's the visual style I was aiming for. Kinda reminds me of when I posted my Chaos WFB guys on this same conversion forum, many people oppose the wing-size of my wraiths, the impractical conversion of the lords, etc, but when I want a certain look of the design, my visual style that I created is exclusively for that, regardless of realism, fluff, etc.
