Default Techpriest Enginseer, same size as basic SMs?

I have getting the ol cogs clanking in the brainbox feeling again....


The title covers it, but to expand a little I want a lot of Enginseers for a possible project army.

Now the bugger is I need about 30 or so and there are only two current sculpts (Three if you count the FW Titan one).

Is there anybody out there with normal SM and either of the Enginseers that could take a quick side by side comparison picture for me?

The hope is that I can drop the shoulder pads from a normal SM (possibly DA ones as well) and GS the robes, hood and collar.

Just at the planning and thinking through stage at the moment.

That image proves what I want to do is possible.

Now I have to find some bits and see if my GS skills are up to it.

Most you will get to see for a while is possibly a test mini.

What about the techmarine models also? I am sure you could do something with them too.

The biggest pain in the dick will be coming up with 30x steampunkish weapons to act as the techpriest's weap... unless you're actually just going to buy those.

Maybe, if I can be bothered to remove the shoulder pads of them.

Not too much of an issue with these, Boltguns will do.

I might as well fess up.

The plan is to do a Adeptus Mechanicus theme across three armies, SM, SoB and IG.

I have been itching to go Imperial for a while now but could never settle on one thing.
With this I don't have to.

I can magpie about, doing 500 point blocks of all three but still get a Apoc force after six blocks.

Plenty conversions to do and I get to use up the random Imperials I have about the house/loft.

The guys based on Enginseers will be used as SMs and Sisters rules wise.
