Ok for my fluff I need wings on my assualt marines instead of jump packs. I've tried it on one model with out green stuff and it looks horrible. So I bought some green stuff but im not sure on how to make the wings look like they belong there. Im using pegasus knight wings if that helps.
Oh and any ideas on different positions of the wings would help.
Thanks for any comments.
what if you do somthing that makes the wings look like they have broken out through the armor. like they are on the persons back but the armor was in the way of them so the broke through it at about where the sholder blades ould be on a person.
I remember some guy made a Dark Angel's assault marine like that, looked amazing.
You could always use Swooping Hawk Wings, but they look more decorative. I'll edit in more as I find them.

Those DA look remarkably BA, especially the SHP
As per the photo, I would use a standard backpack and trim of the side vents, then add the wings, I would also use smaller wings, swooping hawks or the Spyrer wings
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I cut off the area of the wing where it widened and pinned them in place. (I would reccomend using a pin with a plastic model as well). Placing them is kinda tricky, you might have to shave down shoulder pads or part of the backpack to make everything fit. And don't glue on the backpack until after you paint the wings.
I can read now!
That Dark Angels pic is mine, it's actualy a Blood Angels Sanguinary high preist. Sence the preists are direct decendents (rumored), I made him as so.
I used the new pegasas knight wings just as you say you want to. To make them look like they belonged I added a regular space marine back pack. Chopped off the bubble vent thingys, and the lower vent thingys. Then I took a round file and filed the inside of the back packs roundish top part. This way it could clip around the top of the wings.
As far as useing a whole squad of models like this, I'm going to advise against it. I can hadly get this guy to sit right in CC, he's always falling over and getting in the way of the rest ofthe squad ^_^ They'll also take up 4 squares in the GW case, which sucks. They'll look awsome, but will be nothing but a hassle. Trust me on this one.
The idea of useing swooking hawk wings would work way better, give you sergent the exarch wings and every one else the regular ones. They're smaller and made for this size model.

Tomb Kings, Marines, Eldar
ok thanks for the comments,
I think I'll save the conversions for when i have a bit more expereince with modeling.
for now i'll just keep the regular jump packs.
Someone in WD (U.S.) 311 used swooping hawk wings on a SoB. im sure you could do the same thing with a marine exept use exarch or something like that. If you do that you could also use baharoths wings for the leader. If you could fit pegasus wings on him that would be even cooler.

if you are going to do this why not use these:
theyre smaller than the pegasus wings and wouldn't take up so much room in the cases and would be a lot easier to position the models in combat.

With the swooping hawk wings you can cut them off the eldar back pack and put them on the marines back then put the backpack on top of that rather easily. They won't look like actual feathered wings but it is a more decorative alternative to bulky jump packs.
