its really one of those things that comes with practice, my advice would be start small with things like weapon swaps and when your confidence grows you'll find yourself branching out. Necromuda is a great system to start you converting, as your gang will change over the course of the games and you wanna add your snacky new toys to the boys.

Always start with plastic and have all the pieces there before you start anything, nothing like sawing off someones head and finding out that it would look out of proportion :D

Head swaps are easy if you LINE OUT the exact spot to remove it beforehand. If you do, snip snip glue. If you don't, it's all going to hell if you slip so much as once.
