They really came about when i bought a bunch of regular IG stuff on Ebay, and the seller threw in a box of SM scouts. I couldn't let them go to waste and my Marine army didn't need any more scouts. So, i set about converting them for my fledgling Desert Imperial Guard themed army.

As well as the stormtroopers there are some pictures of my tanks.

Any feedback is appreciated!

I really like the hot-shot lasguns. What barrel did you use?

All looking very nice! Well done on the conversion, keep it up! I like the look of the scouts mixed with IG, makes a good combo.

Wow. I'm doing the exact same thing, except using the FW Cadian chem conversion bits on SM Scout legs/arms. They're SM Scouts, not IG though. The theory is you have to prove yourself before you get to wear armor like the grownups.

Your painting skill needs some work (painting in the lines), but the color combinations are solid and I like the conversions! Excellent job!

Just because anyone agrees with anyone, doesn't mean they are correct. Beware the thin line between what is "Correct" and what is "Popular."

Yeah they are IG stromtroopers, just used the scout bodies to make them a bit chunkier (caraprace armour). Also tried to file away all the obvious SM markings on their chest pieces. They have Cadian heads and arms, apart from the sergeant who has a scout bolt pistol...

Good Work on the cross army kitbash, nice colour scheme too. I also like the potential use of your tennis court as an absoloutly massive battle field (It is a tennis court yeah? Looks like one what with the net and all.).

Yep, it could make for an awesome mega Apocalypse battle field. GW could make it the next expansion.

You're painting could be better, but you're color scheme is awesome, and you have an eye for details. The are also very nicely posed, one of the better Scout Marine/IG kitbash. And love the tanks and background Mega Apoc it is haha

I have a similar conversion for some of my storm trooper/grenadier vets. I think yours look great and the paint makes the models come together nicely. I wish those tanker helmeted guard heads with sunglasses weren't so hard to come by. I'd have a whole army of infantry with those heads if I could.

Nice work, though the helmet and shoulder pad combo for whatever reason makes them look more like football players to me. Still, nice effect. I'd accept them as stormtroopers.
