Hey guys! This month I'll be building a custom Leman Russ tank using a chassis from puppets war and turret from blood and skulls industries. Was planning on doing a squadron for the competition but the chassis didn't ship fast enough. Here's the before pic of the parts.

Only rarely getting access to internet these days, so I figure I'll upload my "before" and "after" pic at the same time--scout's honor that I did this not-too-massive a conversion in the past 24 days.

I've been busy turning my Bloodthirster into Skarbrand, using (mostly) the following:



Repositioned arm, added kroot ribs to waistband, among other small tweaks. But then the Skarbrand-specific conversions, like so, to have ragged stumps of wings and two axes (with the tail I added on a whim, later than the bitz pic):









Magnetized, of course, so I can still go for other interesting 'Thirsters:

Did some extending on the arms of the dreadknight, extended the pistons that support the arms and converted the heavy incinerator into something more "beefy". The muzzle is attached through 4 barrels made out of brass tubes onto the body, with a "heatshield" made out of a different part from the DK set.

Slight reposing on the legs as well, as wel as on the pilot's arms.

This is the finished version with paint slapped on:



I didn't take a picture of the starter box though... only 1 part was used outside of the DK box, and that's the "swing arm" of the heavy bolter sponsons of a valkyrie gunship. Apart from "bogstandard" 5mm plastic tubing and 2mm brass tubes available at most arts and crafts stores/model train shops.

Here is my custom russ!









The short barrel in some of the pics is for a demolisher cannon and the regular barrel a battle cannon our vanquisher. I was going for a mechanicus look so thought using the rhino front plate helped to give it an imperial feel without it being obviously guard or marines. Good luck to all contestants!
