Bitz Box Models

Hey there boys and girls, now we all have bits lying around the place right, some of us have a bits box some of us let the bits pile up into a large mountain and build a small cave out of it to live in with lots of Dwarves.............just me then.

anyway this little topic of mine is just to see your bits box creations, any models that you have created using only bits, and imagination (green stuff included yes) they can be as wacky or as serious as you like, just so long as they were just made out of spare bits, got it?..........good, now then lets start.

here are a few I made recently with some bits from my recently Finished Armoured Company and my new Empire models, I just thought "hmm I wonder?" and here is what came out.



Guard Standard bearer



Guard Veteran Sergeant


Guard Medic


Guard Master-vox


So what have you made from your bits?

Those guys would make good inquisitorial goons

My librarian

And familiar


were both built out of bitz...granted, I had just put together the better part of a megaforce, so I had a lot of space marine bits

There's also this guy

Made from at least three editions of space marine parts

Whatever camera it is you use Stella, takes some kickass photos. Sharp and colourful. Good job on the conversions.

It's one of the new WFB Empire plastics.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Correct its from the new empire general box, as are most of the componenets (arms, banner pole, banner) and the rest is from just the Infantry box

I love bits-box models. I build my possessed Chaos Space Marines entirely from leftover stuff, so I have pretty clearly mutated and clearly possessed models.
