    538 KB Oh look another Conversionfag Q&A Paragon Scriptarius 04/21/10(Wed)14:34 No.9336777  
    Well I've got 5 days off and nothing to kick it off with, so let's have another one of these.

    ITT: ask a conversionfag anything

    >I'm taking ideas for future conversion projects. Materiels I need to get rid of include 2 Leman Russ Demolishers, a normal Leman, a Chimaera, 20 or so Guardsmen, 3 IG commands, 20 Sanguinary Guard, 10 Death Company and 3 Minotaurs.

    Truth be told, its rather hard to convert tanks into anything other than the same tank with a different look.

    You can always create destroyed versions of them, so you can change immobilized / destroyed vehicles in game.

    Legs are about done, need to assemble the pelvis to make sure it's torso is big enough, or I might have to redo the whole middle third.
    I guess I could. How over the top should it be?
    I was thinking Admech themed army, with servoskull sensors, Mechanicus insignias, extra wires, servitor loaders etc.

    Golden flak armor, maybe some rock hard abs, shiny, a halo, perhaps, but he should still look like a Guardsman.

    I'm trying to figure out the coolest helmet for my commander. Either I'll buff up a chaos undivied champion's helmet with GS, or use a 'zerkers helmet with the 'horns' clipped.

    Would a beautiful Lucifer-esque face work? I mean, I know beauty would be more of a Slaaneshi thing, but if you painted it streaming with blood and with a healthy dose of the uncanny valley, it would be pretty daemonic.

    Or you could do the complete opposite and have some kind of Turian-from-hell visage. I guess that would be more Khorny anyway.

    Also, were you think of having it look up or down?

    Looking at the concept art for Angron, it seems as if the Daemon prince head is the same.

    I guess they used it as a basis, or something.

    That's an easy, if expensive, conversion. All you need are the kits and some plasticard to fix a few gaps.
    I don't really know how to mount Earthshakers on it though.

    yeah, see, those fit in the 95% of the entirely too obvious Ssur namel catagory. What about the backwards russ do you find better looking than the normal russ? is it the long sloping forward treads?

    Try simply shaving off some of the guide lines on the interior of the side sections and placing THEM backwards, instead of just spinning the turret around. You might ahve to add some plasticard to fill some gaps on the side, or you might need to cut the hull into sections and fiddle with the placement to get a non boxy look.

    how to make a shotgun from a plastic bolter, and some brass rod/wire.

    you need.
    1 bolter.

    Alternatively, you can just cut the grip off of a boltgun, and stick it to the underside of a lasgun. Clip the lasgun's tip off and leave enough to make up for the barrel's end. Then you can remove the sights on top if you like.
