Default Monthly Conversion Deathmatch - January Entries

It is the start of a new month, so welcome again to the Heresy Online:


January 2014



A valid entry is a picture before the conversion and a picture after the conversion plus an optional description of the conversion, posted in this thread. The full current rules and FAQ can be found in the Rules thread.
Work in progress photographs or descriptions are also encouraged.

Entries must be submitted by midnight GMT, 31 January 2014.

If there is anything that you think unclear or needs reviewing, however trivial, please post it in the Discussion thread.

Without further ado, Heretics, ready your parts, raise your tools, and start converting.

Scratchbuilt Ork Deff Dread out of misc bits and Gundam pieces. I've taken to calling it Metal Gear WAAAGH! Everything is movable and removable to swap out different weapons and arms.

Pawns betray, Knights die, Bishops conspire, Rooks crumble, and Queens lie. Be wary if you are the King.

Thanks a lot. It took me a lot of time and super glue to make everything fit together. I'm almost afraid to paint it.

EDIT: I got over my fears, and started painting the Metal Gear as well as some Killa Kans. The wip pics and kinda sorta tutorial are in my sig just click Gitkicker's Boyz.

Not sure I can compete with the awesomesauce that is the Mecha monstrousity of Fiddlestix, but here is my Empire General on Griffon conversion:

I took the General of the Empire kit, the Island of Blood Griffon, some Milliput, and knives:



And turned into this:



Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)

Question before I join. All the work that I've done, I've done tonight 18 jan. And the only thinng I've done is cut the legs off. I stopped there when I remembered the challange. If I can still enter, it's going to be a Techmarine on a bike conversion. I know it's been done before, but not by me. And it'll be my first "major" conversion. If approved, will post a pic of it as it is now, before I go any farther.

Just make sure you can post pics of the pieces you used. I used stock pics of the sprues this month because I forgot to take any pics before I started cutting. Often people take pictures of the pieces they are using while the minis are in pieces. So you should be fine.

Well I forgot to take pictures before I put this together. So I'll post pictures of the sprues that are used, and if the entry is not valid, then I completely understand

(Truth be told I never considered entering it here, but thought why not - I never convert anything, so this will probably by my first and only entry xD)

Parts used:
Noise Marine Blastmaster weapon and arm:


Seeker of Slaanesh head:


Chaos Space Marine body, legs, shoulders and backpack:


Result:
Converted Noise Marine Blastmaster, who is gradually turning into a Daemonette due to his... excessive worshipping of Slaanesh.

The purpose of the before picture is to give an indication of what went into the conversion - not prove when the work started - so, pictures of identical parts are fine.

This stance hopefully allows people who find out about the competition after they have started work, or cannot take a photograph for some reason, to enter.
