I have finished my Dark Angels army and was planning to do DamonHunters next. They are waaay overpriced.

Would it be too hard to convert Grey Knights from regular Space Marines? I'll need a fat load of GS, I know. I'll try a test mini and see how I go.

Anyone think it's a good idea?

i dunno, it depends on how well you could sculpt and work with greenstuff

post a pic of it, if its good and doesnt take too much GS it might be better than buying daemonhunters.

I've seen some other conversions that looked pretty good. You could still see that they were from standard marines, but no one had a problem identifying them as daemonhunters. Mostly, you just need to get the storm bolter and the halberds right. The rest is up to taste, really. Twin bolt pistols can make a great wrist mounted storm bolter, and the halberds are pretty easy to convert from chainsword power generators, rod, and plasticard for the blade. Also, any kind of 'knight' styled helmet, like those found in some marine/chaos marine plastics and especially in WHFB knight sets can really make a visual impact on the model. Otherwise, just using lots of purity seals and inquisitorial icons would work.

Concerning the head, I'm gonna shave off the earpieces and pipes ont he face and GS the pointy face under the eyes.

I'm gonna need to buy a couple of spare marines though. I'll get them in the next few days and then I'll post some WIP of them.

If possible, could someone please post some pics of something along the lines of this project if you can find them. Thanks

i've seen some grey knight models which were converted from space marine and they look alright but a bit surreal he had to tell me what they were I couldn't tell straight away. it was like a 10 year old who did them so it was just plasticard halberd and two bolters glued togerther attached to their arms and painted with chainmail (the usual so much paint they look like the creture from the silver lagoon, completely covering all the deatil). If you are skilled with green stuff you could do a good job maybe sculpt the pointed mouth part on the helmet but they may look too surreal still.
