Hey guys!

This is a WIP arbite conversion for Dark Heresy. Still need to work on the GS and put a nice big barrel on his bolter.





C&C most welcome!

Looks pretty cool. Any idea what colours you are going to go.


What is Dark Heresy btw?

Awesome. Where are the legs from? Can't seem to recognize them from anywhere...

So there I am, minding my own business, five rabid gamers on my heels, secluding myself in a dark room with D20 Modern sourcebooks creating my own WH40k system where you play an inquisitor and his retinue... when I pick up the latest White Dwarf and read the new releases, D'OH!

I'm such an idiot...

Wow that looks pretty sweet. Where is the head from? Only thing I can think of is forgeworld?? I could definitely use that for shotgun toting IST's, now only if I had a use for them...

That head looks like a pilot of some kind, maybe a tank driver. The gun is a lasgun with the barrel sawn off. I'd know that pattern anywhere. It should look great as a bolter

I actually kind of liked the Baneblade crewman's head better. Maybe magnetize or pin it in place so you can switch between a helmeted head and unhelmeted head? I didn't look too closely at the Dark Heresy book because I think it's easier to just use 40k/Fantasy as a campaign setting and use the d20 rules, but I imagine that there are situations where you don't want a helmet on.

It's a cool figure.

I'd think some more about the head as it will be the main focal point of the character. I don't really like the head with the bandana as it makes him look more like a criminal than a law man. On the other hand the guardsman head makes him look too much like a guardsman.

You might be able to achieve something with the guardsman's head and some GS. That's probably what I would do.

Are they like Imperial cops? I think you should make two models, and then the one with the Cadian head can be the smart, psychological and less violent guy, while the one with the Catatchan head can be the bad cop.

They would also need a proper patroll veichle...

nice conversion...saw something similar in white dwarf a while back. i like the helmeted head better, but you might want to consider gsing some "ski" style goggles onto a standard head...or even using a scout head.

anyway, love the conversion, nice work!!
