I just finished my Librarian conversion for my SM army and it dawned on me that for one character it ended up being very expensive.


Lysander Blister: $30.00
Librarian Blister: $18.00
Green Stuff
(1/4 pkg.) : $6.00
Tomb kings box $22.00 (1/2 of a $45.00 box I bought for my 2 HQ's)

Total: $76.00!!


He looks cool and all but that WOW that's expensive for 1 dude!:puke:

How about you??.., What's your priciest character model?

that's why i don't bother with conversions unless I have a leftover piece from a sprue.
dude,I can't believe you spent that much for 1 dude didn't you price it out 1rst before buying?
Let me see if I have some leftover stuff I can sell you for $50.
this hobby costs way to much as is off the shelf. I will buy 2 sqds of marines in place of blowing it all on 1 model.

On a suit I just converted, I used 2 Suits worth of parts just on him, plus spare bits for testing...Probably 65 all told there...The plasticard would take it up another 10, greenstuff 6...So looking at 81 bucks, and not even finished yet.

does it have to be a conversion, because if it is it would be my slaanesh sorcerer. $25 boxed set of possessed, $35 boxed set of chaos marines and a $22 boxed set of dark angel veterans. Yes i did use the extra bitz for buliding more models but i don't really use them. All in all it was $88 for the one model i actually wanted.

So far my most expensive thing is a tank conversion that I am working on.

Imperial baneblade = $95
2 Landraiders= $55 each = $110
1 Vindicator= $40
Miscellanious bits =$45

$290 so far on one tank that is not Forgeworld

conversions cost so much
Yes, but having everyone in the gaming store drool all over your models is so worth it. Also winning conversion contest is just as sweet.:so_happy:
