    How to convert a GK Hero! =/

    How would you guys convert a Grey Knight Brother-Captain or Grand Master, seeing as there are no official models? Not that I would use the official one, anyway. I am looking for something inspired, doing justice to a truly bad motherf****r. Maybe I'll cut the helmet off of one, and hang it from his hip, like he had to remove it. Or put it, damaged, on the base near his feet. With some scorch marks over the eyes.

    So... ideas, guys! Thanks

    Use a chaplain model as the base model, they are mean mothers and covered in purity seals!

    I'm just [going to be] using BC Stern, then using various GKT arms to change his look, more action oriented as I reel his normal pose is, well plain.

    That and a Nice Base. With a IG head or something.

    Converting metal models scares me, but then, maybe I'm just too much of a n00b. For some reason I feel MUCH more comfortable with plastic.

    I like the BC Stern model, but I've been looking at the DH codex, and the showcase in the back has some really wacked-out ideas, too.

    Here's how I'd do it...

    Marneus Calgar Torso and Legs - click me!

    Grey Knight Terminator Arms - click me!

    Then, a head of any kind you want. I'd probably use one of the cool medieval-esque heads from things such as the Black Templars upgrade sprue or the Company Champion head, etc.

    Excellent idea! I was going to end up with an extra marneus calgar from buying his command squad box, anyway. The suggestions above, with a little green stuff, should work wonders...

    Thanks!

    I just took the better looking Termie from the box (one with parchment going down the entire shaft of his polaxe) and painted him gnarly. Its gold (Dont smirk, it looks better than you'd think), the eyes are red instead of blue, and the blade is pitch black with blood smears.... okay he looks alittle daemonic, but its still pretty cool

    If you do go through with it, then please post pictures. I'll be doing much the same thing, if I ever start Grey Knights. :yes:

    Keep in mind you can bit-order from the GW website, if you don't have any other way to get the GK arms. However, because of shipping, it may just cost the same to buy the Terminator blister to get the arms, and then you'll have an extra GK Termie body lying around for future conversions...
