Because GW did my poor Repulsor Executioner dirty, I decided to make a swap-out turret so I can also use it as a regular Repulsor.
I consolidated the weapons a bit into "bullets/ missiles/lasers", because frankly, no one can remember them all anyways.

Much better looking with the weapons on the turret!

And a slightly converted Mr. Handy (from Brother Vinni's miniatures) to stand in for a Primaris Techmarine

I am loving these conversions still, such a cool army concept. The new Librarian you’ve done looks ace, the pose is mint af. And the Tech Marine Mr. Handy suits the theme perfectly.

I'll add my voice in praise of your modelling skills but also I love the fluff you came up with. Primaris controlled by ad-mech is a neat idea, and gives them an excuse to fight anybody

Is that a predator turret?

I love the Librarian's pose and the extra apparatus on his back. The "techmarine" is very thematic!

It sure is, though it's got some extra gubbins from other kits slapped on. And the lascannons are from Puppets War.

I got through my five man Blade(taser?)Guard squad. Obviously the blinged out stock versions weren't going to fit with my army's clean sci-fi theme, so I went for a pretty straightforward "breaching team" look instead. The shields are from the Necromunda Subjugator kit and worked out perfectly.

Those are awesome man, really.

And the way you've gotten the rims to fit seamlessly to the marine torsos is excellent! Bravo.

Excellent Excellent work. The whole army has such character and the lore is Excellent as well! I particularly love the doctpus and Mr. Handy. Keep up the great work.

The helmets actually come with pewter collars they fit into, so it's not actually too much hassle. I just have to cut off the existing gorget on the armour and sometimes trim down the cableing on the side of the pewter collar (the starterset intercessors with attached shoulderpads are a tight fit)

Big Daddy Dread ready for stompin!
The Redemptor kit is pretty great, I just replaced the sarcophagus with a Kharadron dome that happened to also perfectly fit one of the larger bombshell Mini's bubble helmets. Other minor changes were to swap out the teeny-tiny icarus rocket pod with something a little chunkier, and integrate the small gatling gun into the palm of the fist. Really happy with how this one came together!

Dread looks great, and it really fits perfectly with the rest of the army. Cannot wait to see some gunship or speeder conversion!

Well that's just fantastic!

And as you mentioned, I do love it when random bits from other kits just fit with little effort. Saves time and somehow makes you feel like you did something clever (maybe that's just me)

That KO dome just fitting on the Redempter body feels like when I put a Magmadroth head on a Trygon. May have clipped a bit here and there, but I really thought it would take ages to make it look right!

That dread is fantastic! It reminds me a little of Mike Wazowski, or a Beholder.

The dread is so cool.

These bubble heads look absolutely amazing! Very unique with one of their most key features replaced, yet instantly recognizable as Space Marines. Exalted.

This dreadnought was one of the first models I converted for my army, but I had him go through a bit of an upgrade. New gun, some backpack vents, and extended torso to make him contemptor sized (he used to be a chaplain dread)




And I also did up a unit of Servitors, which are the guys that win games of 9th edition. These were just some fun robots I had kicking around and wanted to paint forever. The Fallout Securitron and Brainbot are from Brother Vinni's minis (possible out of print now), and the two floaty bots are from Bombshell minis.

You've just made a much cooler version of an AdMech Kastelan Robot! Much more imposing scale. Superb

All in all, this is such a piece of work, one of the coolest Primaris armies ever
