Is it possible for me to convert my normal boyz into burnas, lootas and kommandos. Would this be accepted in a match and if so how would you go by doing it. Thanks in advance for any input.
I made 8 Kommandos out of boys to hang out with Snikrot. All I did was cut the sword off and glue it on backwards (to give it a stabbing look), attached some stikk bombs and painted them up camo. No ones ever complained, look pretty good too.
Also, I used the Burna heads from the loota kit.. Sounds like you don't have those, but they aren't necessary.

for the commandos, you could buy the WFB orc box and you get quite a few dagger arms in there. then add some stikkbombs
Yup, conversions are always possible. For the 'special' Ork troops, these are what you'd probably need, besides a slugga boy:
Kommandos: stikkbombs (the nobz from the Assault on Black Reach set work well)
Tankbustas: rokkits, or a similar missile firing weapon bit from another army
Burnas: burnas, or a similar flamer weapon bit from another army
Stormboyz: a large rokkit, engine, or jump pack to strap to their back
Lootas: heavy weapons from other armies
Flash Gitz: plasma/melta weapon bits from another army

Honestly..Good luck making kustum lootas..Those guns are so big it would take a twin linked Heavy Bolter to do it any justice..Plus with all the Orkification - probably cheaper just to buy the kit.
But Flash Gitz are easy. Give them lots of bitz and gubbins, and a really, really big gun. Like..Two big shootaz Ork'd together. That kind of big.
I made a Flash git from a Nob and 4 shootas, however. If I had the model here I'd show you.

Konverting anything is just the best in the ork army! While you respect the "what you see is what you get" you can do what you like!

Making custom Lootas is easy, get IG Heavy Weapons, glue them in a firing position on a Shoota Boy and run some wires from the gun into them or something. Would look fine.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.
Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
you seem quite attatched to the ideas of wires form guns to orks,
no the first time this has come up,
but i like the idea of gluing choppas on backwards, but how i do love those kommando models
either way is god,,
