Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wondering how you went about getting your storm guardian models.
See the box set is 8 and 2 of those apparently come with special weapons, and if there's 2 in each box that i don't want to use, that's 6 models per box, and to get a full squad of 20 i will need 4 boxes.
This is less than optimal, and seems to go against GW's usual standard of making all boxes at least big enough to make a minimum squad.
So a few questions, do you think it would be easier to convert standard guardians?
Does WYSIWYG extend to poorly priced and boxed models? do the people you play think it's okay to simply pretend they have a pistol and CC weapon?
And anyone who has bought the box set, could you tell me whether there is enough bits to make those 2 special weapon storm guardians into regular storm guardians?
I have never seen a Storm Guardian box other than oooooold metal ones.
As far as converting goes, you can cut down the catapults pretty easily, and then get some sword bits from WHFB or wherever you want. The special weapons will be a bit more tricky, but they can be custom made relatively easily.

Contrary to what people believe, WYSIWYG does not mean your models must have everything represented as GW wants it. You can simply convert the models in such a way that they are clearly and distinctly Storm Guardians as opposed to something else.
I bought two of those old 16-pack Guardian Boxes from a long time ago, made bayonets out of plasticard, and gave them mini-shields. Had I more time, I would have shortened every barrel to a "carbine" length.
Nevertheless, as long as your Storm Guardians have some likeness to a firearm and CCW and look distinct from your Guardian Defenders in some manner, WYSIWYG is in effect.
i hate storm guardians, but i feel obliged to help, i saw some kid making a set of them at my local gw one time, and i'm about 98% sure you can make them with all 8 being standard guys, but i would convert the 16 normal guardians anyway, it'd be cooler and a lot cheaper,
