Ill start us off here guys.

Hydra Flak Tank
Salamander scout vechicle
Griffon ( still painting)
Chimera (morized, still tinkering w/ controls)
Some of my troops as well
Armoured fist squad
Tell me what you think guys
In the night,
armed with lasguns,
and the light of the emporer,
they stood tall,
in the twilight,
the galaxy burns,
a cunning tribute,
to the god of man,
all hail the Emperer!
Wow, some of those conversions are awesome. I especially like the missle basilisk. The pics are kind of poor though and I can't see much detail.
I'll post my hell hound made from a chimera soon. I'm still working out how I'm making the turret though.

Also pictures with digi cameras can be taken from a distance and cropped later, standing back wont make them go out of focus and most cameras are powerful enough to crop and zoom. hope that helps.

I also enjoy good music, fine food, late night strolls on the beach and dancing in moonkin form :)
It is a nice display of skill, some of the conversions are interesting indeed. Pictures are not the greatest, so a lot of details is probably lost... Painting could be more careful and detailed and it would help the models a lot, but this is not a painting forum so I will not comment on that aspect.
As far as conversions: I like most of them. Especially the Veteran's Chimera. Looks like some sort of a remote-operated tank... Another nice one is the Russ based on Chimera body - interesting concept. I do not particularly like the Missile Basilisk - seems to be too "US Army" and not IG-like... Another problem that I see is that you have three Russes, and none of them look alike…
The thing with conversions is that you change to model to make it look as you see fit, as you have it set up in your head. Not everyone will have the same taste and like the same conversions... If building IG models for IG army, I would prefer to keep them simple, utilitarian in nature. I am doing a lot of bitz on my WH armor - only because in my opinion those are supposed to be ornate and emanating with the aura of power...
So in summary – nice, as long as you are happy with them!

I like the Griffon. Very cool.
Those are some interesting tanks. I really like that Missile basilisk. The radar and all really makes it look unique. I assume it works like a normal Basilisk it just looks different.
That Griffon's looking really nice, too...
