Default Monthly Conversion Deathmatch - December Voting


December 2013 Voting


Voting is open to all members of the Forum. All entrants must vote, and cannot vote for themselves.

Each member of the Forum can cast one vote in each of the two categories by posting in this thread:

Most Innovative Idea: This category covers the pure imagination that fuels conversions so is for the cleverest idea irrespective of technical execution

Best Executed Idea: As well as ideas conversions are works of technical skill, so this category covers the ability to make a converted model look as if it has always been that way irrespective of how ambitious the change was.

Voting will close at midnight GMT on 11 January 2014.

Vote do not need to include a reason but they are encouraged.

For example, I might put:

Most Innovative Idea: The Mod Team - the Conversion Deathmatch is a great idea

Best Executed Idea: The Mod Team - the Conversion Deathmatch has been run very well.

The current full rules and FAQ can be found in the Rules thread.

This month's entries are below. There are more shots of many of the conversions from other angles in the Entry Thread:

Most Innovative Idea: Uveron - unlike most Raptor conversions it is more than just existing wings attached to a CSM.

Best Executed Idea: Varakir - narrowly the conversion that looks most like it is an actual kit.

Most Innovative - Uveron: Good work on coming up with a nice conversion outside the norm.

Best Executed - HokieHWT: Working with metal and doing a convincing conversion is always difficult. Good job.

Most Innovative Idea: Varakir - Looks great, Idea to do a 'full' squad is great!

Best Executed Idea: HokieHWT, quite a complex bit of model clipping is needed for that conversion. Good Job.

Most Innovative Idea: Uveron - The jump pack as a whole is very different fron any that I have ever seen. You're use of spawn bits make for an interesting idea, and a visually exciting model.

Best Executed Idea: Varakir - Though simple, these models are beautifully executed and look like something you would find in the codex.



Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the space orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Yeaaaah Ultramarines!

Most Innovative Idea: Uveron - Very cool use of spare parts and he looks wicked enough to be a true Chaos Raptor.

Best Executed Idea
: Varakir - If I didn't know better, I wouldn't have picked them for being converted. Great job!

Most Innovative: Uveron - To me it looks like those bits were taken from DV, Berserkers, and Tyranid kits, Bravo sir.

Best Executed: Varakir - The models look extremely well built almost as if they were a kit from FW (when the resign isn't all buggered up).

Most Innovative Idea: Uveron - Starter box kits are a great place to get cheap, interesting & individual minis with a bit of conversion. This is a prime example. Hope he serves your raptors well!

Best Executed Idea: HokieHWT - The gun arm to sword arm is seamless. Great choice of bits and nicely executed.

Most Innovative Idea: Uveron - I love the unique look of the wings, really brings it to life in Chaos form.

Best Executed Idea: Varakir - Honestly, if you didn't tell me it was a conversion I would be asking what the kit was called.

Excellent job by all!
