Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I want to convert some Kommandos, I have a some spare black reach and standard boys lying around and I would like some good ideas for converting them. I was thinking cloaks of some kind, but any other ideas are welcome. I want them to look unique, not just painted some a cammo scheme and slapping on some stikk bombs (they do come with them). My first though right now is liberal use of greenstuff, has anyone here converted any?
^^^^^Those are some Awesome Kommando's.
Night vision goggles??? Silencers on sluggas?? I guess it depends on how good you are with Greenstuff. Im not so good so I went the kitbash route. I also have some of the Forgeworld Kommando heads and they look cool.
haha, I've seen those Kommandos before. I could try kitbashing some of my space marines bits in there. I like to think my space mariens and orks are fighting all the time. I also thinking about cammo netting of some kind. I like the commando covered in leaves up there.
If you want easy night vision goggles, the loota/burna kit has heads with goggles. I don't remember off the top of my head how many come in the kit, but eBay always has tons. There's also a couple other very nice heads in the kit as well. My fav head in the kit is the one chewing on the cigar. He kind of reminds me of Jesse Ventura's character in predator and makes me chuckle when I look I look at it.
Cuts around the legs to make them kneeling or even crawling would be unique in itself
When I built my Kommandos, I thought about an ork concept of stealth. I only picked heads and arms that had no jewelry or metal, and used the leather tunic bodies. I also used the legs in skirts/kilts, which gives new perspective on going Kommando.
I also thought about "moving through cover" and utilized the naked dagger arm, while adding another blade to the underside of the slugga. This way, all members lead with two blades. I used fantasy spears and attached skulls to the tail end of the shaft for my "stikkbombz" to give a more stealthy feel. They aren't painted yet, but I might add some tiger stripes or something...
I'm thinking using some plasti card to do some night vision goggles then some little strips of modeling putty here and there then depending on how bases leaves sticking out of the strips of green stuff then panting them largely black.
oh also did anyone else just get the idea of having an ork truck with a cardboard cut out of a rhino bolted on one side to take that Kommandos unit around ?
