Been a while since I've been on here. So here's the story about my conversion. A campaign started up in my town that spans every gaming store. The Local GW store Helped get together every other gaming store in the city (and surrounding cities) to all get together and help with a Campaign. I'd been sick and couldn't get my army list I was going to be playing painted in time. I'd loose some bonus points but it wasn't really that bad. Then I realized I didn't have my HQ built, the GW store was closed, and I had a match in 8 hours.



Behold the bits box! From this I would make my master piece!

I narrowed it down to these sprues. Nephilum Jet Fighter, Terminator, Deathwing Command Squad, Dark Angels upgrade sprue, Venerable Dreadnaught, Grey Knight Terminator Squad, Grey Knight Strike Squad, Space Marine Tactical Squad. (Some sprues not pictured and where added later)





Then this happened:



I took a turbine thing from the Nephilum and glued it onto the back of the Terminator back piece. Realizing how dumb that looked I started over with a fresh terminator back piece. What I ended up building next was much better. With a bit of carving, clipping, filing and minimal green stuffing I ended up with this.






He's got on a Ravenwing Terminator shoulder pad on, because what else am I going to do with a Ravenwing Terminator Shoulderpad. (Why do these exist?)

So my question now is what color should I paint his armor?

I love the Knight model and you've done nice work with the contrast between the "mechanical" bits and the armor plates.

Nice conversion, nice Knights (Grey and Imperial), like your idea to use wyches as Death Cult Assassins (may have to steal that), glad you aren't sick any more, and sweet stuff, keep posting and demonstrating your impressive army/ies!

I dunno Bro, feels like you rushed with your knight.
While the quality looks fine, it seems you did not do an 80 pounds model justice. Just feels like its lacking something, seems unfinished and a bit bland. Misses details and so much space for free hand or at least decals/transfer sheets.
