Default Monthly Conversion Deathmatch - June Entries

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


June 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, 30 June 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.

Hey guys! This month I'll be building a custom Leman Russ tank using a chassis from puppets war and turret from blood and skulls industries. Was planning on doing a squadron for the competition but the chassis didn't ship fast enough. Here's the before pic of the parts.


If you are normal the crowd will accept you...
If you are deranged the crowd will make you thier leader.

Only rarely getting access to internet these days, so I figure I'll upload my "before" and "after" pic at the same time--scout's honor that I did this not-too-massive a conversion in the past 24 days.

I've been busy turning my Bloodthirster into Skarbrand, using (mostly) the following:



Repositioned arm, added kroot ribs to waistband, among other small tweaks. But then the Skarbrand-specific conversions, like so, to have ragged stumps of wings and two axes (with the tail I added on a whim, later than the bitz pic):









Magnetized, of course, so I can still go for other interesting 'Thirsters:




CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!

Did some extending on the arms of the dreadknight, extended the pistons that support the arms and converted the heavy incinerator into something more "beefy". The muzzle is attached through 4 barrels made out of brass tubes onto the body, with a "heatshield" made out of a different part from the DK set.

Slight reposing on the legs as well, as wel as on the pilot's arms.

This is the finished version with paint slapped on:



I didn't take a picture of the starter box though... only 1 part was used outside of the DK box, and that's the "swing arm" of the heavy bolter sponsons of a valkyrie gunship. Apart from "bogstandard" 5mm plastic tubing and 2mm brass tubes available at most arts and crafts stores/model train shops.

I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.

I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!

Here is my custom russ!









The short barrel in some of the pics is for a demolisher cannon and the regular barrel a battle cannon our vanquisher. I was going for a mechanicus look so thought using the rhino front plate helped to give it an imperial feel without it being obviously guard or marines. Good luck to all contestants!

If you are normal the crowd will accept you...
If you are deranged the crowd will make you thier leader.
