Hi, As a long time fan of Killzone (PS2 and PSP) I was wondering if anyone here had considered basing a total conversion of the IG on the protaganists of Killzone, the Helghast.
I think they would make for a great IG army with a distinct feel. I have come up with some ideas but as I am quite new to 40k I wanted to see if anyone more knowledgable might offer their insight.
The standard trooper would be quite easy in my opinion. A simple conversion of a cadian soldier and the addition of a gas mask with some green stuff. However the vehicles of killzone I feel would be more difficult. To be honest I am not a big fan of most vehicles in 40k so I have no quams about completely transforming them to fit with killzone.
This is really nothing more than an idea at the moment as I am currently building a DE army I see this as more of a long term project to embark on.
For the emperor? No. For Scholar Visari! :w00t:
That sounds VERY cool, although it would take an awful lot of work.
To make the gasmasks and the rest of them smooth in and look like part of the model would be hard but vrey rewarding. Tank-wise, I've never seen any of the Kill-Zone tanks; gotta pic? I can't find anything on Google.
Have you played killzone? If so you should remember what they look like. I particuarly like the APCs. I'll see if I can find some pictures online.
As with the gas masks , yeah that would take a long time to do but it would be something I would really take my time on. Imagine being able to field a whole Helghast Army and how amazing it would look.
EDIT: Found one of the APC's

Their bodies and weapons looks pretty similar to the forgeworld Elysian models.

Then instead of the standard head you could use some cadian respirators with a little converting like changing the sunglass lens to goggles and pipe adding.

But, and a big but, that army would be expensive as crap.
Cadians with those respirator heads, and a lot of time and greenstuff skills could be just as effective for not that much cash.

Oh and I have no doubt that the forgeworld option would be very expensive so green stuff would most likely be the better idea. However if I were to do this I'd want them to look the best so Im not sure what I might do. Either way it's a long project that might not even get started for another 6 months (painting up DE, going back to sea).
Well, you could make the APCs by using modified Rhinos or Chimeras with ForgeWrold Hydra Flak Cannons for the weaponary.
you could always start with steel legion models
they already got the gas masks
they already got the storm coats
just a little bit of modding (mostly weapon-wise) and they'd look like the spitting image of those gray-skinned ba$tards!
Shoot first....shoot again....annnnnnnnnd shoot some more, cause I think I saw his leg twitch.
Also, very mad props to aerion_the_faitful for making so many damn good drawings, esp. ones of Space Marines (and the one that I use for my Avatar)!
Are we talking underslung shotguns and everything?? Sounds awesome dude, hop it turns out well!
Also take a look at the new FW Death Korps models, heads in particular, i doubt you would want to buy them for the heads, but they may be good as a referance point for sculpting.
Inquistion force WIP. Pics on posts 17 and 23.
My suggestion would be to convert using space marine scout sniper heads (off BWBits) on cadian bodies, & using green stuff to model masks underneath the goggles. OR you could just buy the goggles & not the heads, & use them to convert existing steel legion/cadian heads.
