Thanks Anvildude. In a way, yes. Certainly any more Orks are going to get re-posed. But my "army" is not a typical army and I doubt I'll reach the numbers of just Orks that others may use for an whole Ork army. (You'll have to see my army's blog to get a full understanding)
Without "needing" to play the game, I can take my time on every army member and give them all the love they deserve.

Nice work people.

My most complex conversion (by far) is my Keeper of Secrets alernative model. Base model is a WFB Ghorghon. Everything else is modelled by me. It's still WIP...

Not the best picture (all the blends look like gak), but the guy at Gamesday that year wasn't on top of his game.


He knows that I know and you know that he actually doesn't know the rules at all.

This is an old one but a favourite just because of how much modelling and converting involved. It needs an update now though.

Awesome conversions!

My best one so far is the Death Guard Predator converted from an old Baal Predator I think.
Side-cannons, kombi-bolter and rocket launcher are magnetized.

Sadly I only have some mid build pictures, I want to eventually make a improved version with a lower silhouette. Meanwhile im gonna go over this one again and make it look not so empty around the turret with added bitz etc.

Spoiler:










On this variant I used the original turret ring which prevented me from lowering the weaponary as much as I wanted. The gun are attached to the middle piece with the original mounting parts (the discs).

Wow, I need to take the time to read this whole thread. Thanks for posting folks! I don't know if I have a best conversion. Maybe this one for shear visual impact.









On the other hand I won a contest with this one back in the day, which went a long way to really getting me into scratch building, over on Bartertown. It incorporated a casting of an actual dragonfly's body.
