so this is a very simple, but I feel, effective way to convert Warriors of Chaos to CSM's.
It requires very little Greenstuff skills or overall converting skills..but the over all finished look works.
These are the pieces that you will require:
Chaos Marine Head
Bolt Pistol Arm
Chaos Marine Backpack
WFB Chaos Warrior Left Arm
WFB Chaos Warrior Body - Front and Back.
After gluing the front and back together you will need to cut the chaos bolt arm off just behind the glove..now the 2 gloves match pretty well in size and I dont think it matters too much that 1 side is a bit more fancier.

Once the arm is in place you will need to trim and size the head..as the sides of the Chaos heads are slightly bigger.
Now you will need to fill in the deep hole for the head with green stuff and trim the upper armour guards if needed..this serves 2 purposes:
1: give you something to put the Choas head into
2: give you a nice little ridge to hide the gap.

Simply push the head into the Greenstuff so that it will give you a solid join..make sure to push it deep enough so as to get a little ridge to form..this if you are like me with poor sculpting skill will eliminate the need to sculpt anything.
The back...just simply place a little bit of Greenstuff onto the backpack and push it onto the back of the Marine..the green stuff will mold to the fur..its not a great way to do it..but I found that if it falls of after drying a little super glue works really well with the mold.
As you can see these won't win any awards..but this is a very simple way to do it.
I feel that with a good paint job you wont even notice some of the joins etc.
Well I hope this will help anybody else wishing to do the same thing.
Please let me know what you think...I'm sure there was a 100 better ways to do this but this is how I did it.
