July 2014 Voting


Voting is open to all members of the Forum. All entrants must vote, and cannot vote for themselves.

Each member of the Forum can cast one vote in each of the two categories by posting in this thread:

Most Innovative Idea: This category covers the pure imagination that fuels conversions so is for the cleverest idea irrespective of technical execution

Best Executed Idea: As well as ideas conversions are works of technical skill, so this category covers the ability to make a converted model look as if it has always been that way irrespective of how ambitious the change was.

Voting will close at midnight GMT on 9 August 2014.

Vote do not need to include a reason but they are encouraged.

For example, I might put:

Most Innovative Idea: The Mod Team - the Conversion Deathmatch is a great idea

Best Executed Idea: The Mod Team - the Conversion Deathmatch has been run very well.

The current full rules and FAQ can be found in the Rules thread.

This month's entries are below. There are more shots of many of the conversions from other angles in the Entry Thread:

Ravion


My chaos knight... using leftover chaos bits and whatever else I can find around the house. I will also be buying some bug bits to put on him.

Before


After



Khorne's Fist


A SM librarian that up to now I refused to pay €25 for. With the (hopefully) imminent new SW codex I decided to make it into a Rune Priest.

Before


After



ckcrawford


I wanted to corrupt the angelic and almost perfect aspects of some of the loyalists armor. I thought the Blood Angels as newer models had this angelic look, and decided to warp them to look like fallen angels.

Before


After



ChaosRedCorsairLord


The rebellions B-wing had a unique gyro-stabilisation system that rotated the cockpit as the ship rolled, keeping the pilot stationary during flight. All it took was some 3mm magnets to achieve the rotating effect, I also replaced the stand with some 2mm brass rod and 4mm plasticard rod to hold the stand magnet.

Best executed: Khorne's Fist. A great kitbash.

Most Innovative: Ravion. Some very clever use of pieces here, I particularly love the plasma cannon arm.

Best Innovative: Ravion, Would never have though those would have looked good if you just showed me the pieces, but they look amazing all together.

Best Executive: Khorne's Fist, with multiple components to your piece, you were able to make a model that definitely belongs together. This is a piece I would use in a Space Wolves Army.

Best executed: Ravion - That knight is one of my favourite models ever and should be a Heresy Mascot.

Best innovative: ckcrawford - Fallen Angels is a theme I wanted to do way back before the last blood angel release, it's great to see someone putting it together.

Best Executed: ChaosRedCorsairLord - When I saw this model in the painting challenge I hadn't realized that any conversion was done...excellent work



Most Innovative: Ravion - one of the best Chaos Knight Conversions I have seen and great use of various bits to make a whole

Best executed: Ravion. Yeah... very smart use and seemless on the powerclaw. I would recommend a bit of work on the shoulderpads though, to go the full 9 yards.

Most innovative: ChaosRedCorsairLord. Simple, but extremely well thought out. Adds a lot to the dynamic nature of the models that I somewhat miss in FFG games. That's why I find it so innovative.
