Since I am new to completely converting models i thought i might run this past you guys to see how plaussible u think this is. My idea is to have a Marine chapter that is based on an ice world and as such specialises in fighting in such conditions.
My conversion idea is to have Space Marine snow mobiles as bikes dont do much good on an icy surface. I will also be styling bases and and things like crampon type spikes to boots.
All of your opinions are welcome and will be highly regarded also tips would go down very well.
My plan was to use the marine bike as the base and remove the rear end i would then use another model(probably non GW as they dont have models like this) or if i cant find one use bits of plastic combined with green stuff to construct the rear end. The skies would be green stuff over the front wheel so if necessary could travel on roads and such for ease of movement.
Well , other than bikes i would have to say , colour scheme is light blue and/or white , put soem snow slock on em for camo , and have ice picks as cc weapons and harpoon shooter thingies as bolt pistols =D .
anyways good luck !
Take a bike, replace back wheels with tracks, replace front wheels with ski. Done.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
You can easily make a ski out of plasticard. I mean all it really is is a slightly curved piece with rod that connects to the bike.
For the tracks, I would just use tank tracks. I mean, they are going to want to look like military ones, so they want to be tough. You can individual order a tank track sprue like this: Click Me

Would those little lego snowshoe/skis work for this? You would have to GS over the nub, but place them side by side in the front. Then take tank tracks for the bottom. GS would be helpful to adding bulk to the skis.
