Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just got done with a nice quasi-conversion. Very little actual converting, but I think it's creative. I play Black Legion Chaos Marines. I ordered the Dark Angel veteran with the Chapter pendant hanging from his belt and the hood pulled up over his head, a typical SM sprue (with backpack and stuff), and a Dark Angel shoulder pad with the raised chapter emblem. I stuck a Chaos Marine arm (with the arrows scratched off) holding a power sword on his left arm and an extended arm holding an Imperial bolter in his right. Painted him up in black on black armor (the original Dark Angel Legion colors to you kids who don't know) and white robes and voila, a Fallen Dark Angel to lead one of my squads. I cackle whenever I think of Dark Angels players seeing him for the first time on the table...
Cool.... Simple, effective...... usable in game terms... and NOT A PRIMARCH CONVERSION.........................YAY
Yah, its a pheasable plan, and I think Primarch Conversions are ok, just please dont flame about them? BTW Some DA players dont think the Fallen are completly choas, if ya know what I mean. . .
Sounds quite cool.
"BTW Some DA players dont think the Fallen are completly choas, if ya know what I mean. . . "
Then they're wrong. Why else would Cypher, a Fallen, be in the 2nd ed. Chaos Codex and the first version of the 3rd ed. Chaos Codex?
It may be debateable, if you gave it a chance, why else would Cypher be getting closer to Terra? Mayby hes just using Choas to get past those treacherous little watchers and then he might make the Starchild. Bet you never thought of that one buuuuuuuuddy.
Yes but Dawn Fire if he was completely evil then why is he carrying his Primarches sword - you know he should hate Lion. And why is he available for IG (first CSM codex - this ed)?
Are they doing the Star Child fluff still? I thought I heard they had decided to scrap it?
Btw the idea for the Fallen is pretty good, I like the idea of one leading or being part of a CSM army.
"Yes but Dawn Fire if he was completely evil then why is he carrying his Primarches sword - you know he should hate Lion."
To make sure that the Dark Angels don't get it back.
"And why is he available for IG (first CSM codex - this ed)?"
Imperial Guardsmen go traitor fairly often in 40K. It was to my understanding that this scenario represented Cypher turning people against the Emperor. He supposedly does that a lot, doesn't he?
And thanks, I thought it was cool too.
Indeed, thats what he does best. Cypher's actually a very nice addition to a guard army. Him and some Fallen Angels w/ pistol and cc weapon; good counter-charge unit.
