Unless all three of them are coincidentally from an Arabic(?)-themed world?

But anyone spending time out in the hot Foleran sun would quickly tan to Foleran skin tone. I once read an interesting anecdote about how German soldiers in the DAK only needed to spend a few months out in the desert before the only way you could distinguish them from the Berber traders that would wander through camp was that they spoke German, and the Berbers didn't.

Plus, what's to say that there isn't a schola progenitum on Folera?

Also, I've got to do another shameless plug for my lord commissar. Made entirely out of GS, a bit of brass wire, and parts from the regular cadian infantry box.





And nice work to everyone else as well!

I remember when Joel Green did his Undead IG, inspired by Heavy Metal, years ago for Games Day, but his was based on the more generic skeletons available at the time.

The new Vampire Counts Skeletons give your army a lot of distinct flavor. I really dig them.

Thanks man

The old Tomb Kings and Catachan IG look I didn't want, mostly because the pants/armour look to bulky when attached to bones

Trying to figure out how to Heavy Metal up the army. I plan to use TK Ushanti for Ogrnys soon.

they just took "not even in death does duty end" seriously.

Undeath is the natural conclusion of taking most of the Imperium's propaganda at face value.

Hey, thanks for some ideas guys…..
Currently converting shock troops for my human auxiliary and looking for some conversion ideas.
I got the Forgeworld Cadian upgrade with respirators and adding some “Tau” details but always enjoy seeing what everyone else is doing too.
I’ll post up once I have a few completed.

Yup, they are the ones I used. However I always buy the mixed head sprue version (HD.5). You get a bunch of heads with no helmets that I don't use, however you also get the awesome helmets with additional optics that I've used for my commanders, snipers, stormtroopers, etc.

Please excuse any spelling errors. I use a tablet frequently and software keyboards are a pain!

I wondered where you got the helmets with the extra optics from. They only come in the mixed sprue? :(

@Orinoco - I didn't e-mail them and it is possible that you could get something organized if you wanted to buy an awful lot of them, but I never realized how many I would use before I started

To be honest though if you don't mind using the bare heads and are kitting out a whole army you should end up with enough.

The Last Chancer Who Survived





Norristown, PA

I did these a while back, but here are 2 units of vets with shotguns, plus a hq command squad that travels around with them to make a sort of "vet platoon" kinda thing.

For the shotguns, I ordered the marine scout shotgun arms from battlewagon bitz. The arms didn't quite fit right so I had to do some filing and a little greenstuff at the joints. It's not perfect but they look fine on the table.

I also have a cadian Harker that I made with the scout heavy bolter, but I haven't gotten around to painting him yet...

There is so much awesome in this thread that it's hard to catch up with it all. Some of those I have seen since being on Dakka and was blown away to begin with, seeing EVERYTHING in one place is staggering.

Great idea, OP!

I'll add my own to the mix over the next couple days, subbed!

44.328850 / -73.110190

Here's my contribution. All of these were done in 1999 when I last played IG.



Top left- Commisar with combi-weapon and replaced Power Axe with Power Sword.

Top right- Needed a Tech Priest for a specific campaign scenario so I made one. Body is from Warzone or Mutant Chronicles, can't remember. Backpack is combined from CSM backpack and old Servitor arm. Bottom part of Force Halbred is missing, was converted from a Chaos Warrior axe and 2 Space Marine Power Axes. Master Craft Plamsa pistol is a slightly converted CSM Plasma Pistol.

Bottom left- "Drive me closer, I want to hit them with my sword!!!" ... except it fell off. Commisar leading a squadron of Chimeras. Or Leman Russ. He's completely removable.

Bottom right- Did someone say "firepower"? Catachan w/ Plasma Cannon in Hellhound turret. Is also completely removable so can be used on any IG tank I have.


And individual pics of each:
