Title: Stormtroopers

Well, as promised, here are the shots of my stormtrooper unit. I've also posted a WIP shot of one of them, but I can post some more.

I LOVE the skull head !!
really nice, I've never think that necrontyr heads could be compatible with IG

D_Arquebus - August 3, 2009 11:17 AM (GMT)
Yes, this is a very nice idea. And well implemented.

Nice job bulking out the very thin Necron Heads with the "Gasmask" nozzles.

Question though, are those guns from PigIron? Or is it just a shaved down Lasgun with plasticard additions? Nice look either way.

nugy - August 3, 2009 11:21 AM (GMT)
wow love what you have done here :thumbup: the guns simply looks fantastic and the heads are just :drool: [I am truly drowling right now]
love to see more!

Klaus, not Santa - August 3, 2009 12:37 PM (GMT)
stunning conversion!
I love the Necron helmets :thumbup:
not sure about the rifles...the barrel looks a bit tiny...but the result is really great!
How long do you need per conversion? Is it suitable for mass use?
Cheers

I thought about that, the barrell thing, but they looked too weird with thicker plasticard. They looked closer to giant shotguns of doom than assault rilfes.

It takes about 1 hour or less for each. The longest part is the construction of each gun.

if i can get some necron heads from a friend, i'm so gona 'borow' that idea...

Go ahead. Let me just give you a piece of advice. Before you glue the heads, you-ll need to flesh out their neck. The necron heads have no neck.

Owwww!

Your Stormtroops look like "Combines" in Half Life 2

Hehehe, never looked at it that way, but now that you mention it, they kinda do!

Tema69 - August 3, 2009 02:56 PM (GMT)
Stunning! Absolutely stunning. They look like Inquisitorial Death Squads or something similarly grimdark!
The Assault Rifles are very... assaultrifleish? Which is good, because the regular Autoguns look way too much like a lasgun. Also, their size are way more realistic, and the guns make them look very 'elite'. They remind me of the HK33 or 53.


I might have to find a way to include something similar in my guards... *contemplating possibilities*

MrBigMr - August 3, 2009 03:11 PM (GMT)
Well, you can consider your idea stolen. I have been looking for a head for my stormies for some time now, and this is more than perfect. I can even use those Destroyer heads for special weapons guys.

Other than that, they rock donkey balls. The guns are a bit more real world than grimdark 40K. Maybe beefier muzzles would have helped. Now they remind me a little too much of some H&K stuff, that's just me. Stunning work non the less.

Hmmm... Never thought of that, the Destroyer heads thingie.

Gonna use that idea for some special weapons.

excelent job mate!!!!!!!!!! they are like the caracters of the army of two!!!!

Thank you so much for putting these up!

I am at a loss ... I am drooling! Thanks again for sharing!

No problem, man.

@ fabricador: About the Army of two characters, I actually converted one of the characters (the one with the heavier armor) from the game for my rag tag veterans units (formerly known as Last Chancers). Since the codex changed, I had to form two units of veretans with them.

Anarnaxe - August 3, 2009 09:58 PM (GMT)
Those are really nice Stormtroopers, certainly sinister enough for 40K. Just wondering, what did you do for the kneepads, as the majority of the body looks Cadian.

Some sweet conversions, and I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of these guys appearing on the forum. Actually, they might form the core of my next Guard army.....Dammit, thats my next force picked then.

Anyway, thanks for sharing with us.

Rethonn - August 3, 2009 10:36 PM (GMT)
nice work, i did something like this a few months ago never got around to painting them.

I've sculpted them, as well as the leg armour and gauntlets. I've used Procreate, which is a grey epoxy putty, so it isn't very noticeable

Awesome stormies, and way faster to build than mine :P

shadowhammer - August 3, 2009 11:25 PM (GMT)
Seconded, this is stolen. Now I have a suitable reason to start hacking up my Vets.

Gran the Slayer - August 4, 2009 06:35 AM (GMT)
Hey Man Realy great job so far nice idea with the necron heads

lone dirty dog - August 4, 2009 08:25 AM (GMT)
Love the look of these nice mix with the forge world IG model as well,. like the fact you beefed them seen some done before but did not look right but these look great. Just one thing have you got a pic of them from the back to see what the head looks like that would be so helpful for when i still this idea cheers............... :thumbup:

i was actually thinking that earlier today

I've actually used a Necron head on my commander but instead I shaved it down and stuck it into one of those empty cadian helmets and I cut the bottom jaw off, i like yours more though. I think I will attempt a veteran unit with Necron heads now.

you know what would tie the beret guy with the others better?

a skull face tatoo like, the one shown in the armegeddon ork hunter sketches

That would be awesome, but unfortunately the sarge has a blonde 'stash and a face tatoo might look weird, but i'll keep that one in the box for my next squad of those :P

Nibbles, The Destroyer - August 5, 2009 06:00 AM (GMT)
Wow. Nice storm troopers. Currently planning up Elisyan Drop conversion army. Needed some suggestions, this looks like a promising probability.

Caiin - August 5, 2009 07:33 AM (GMT)
Great conversions and nice paint job!

I still need a band of 10 troopers and I might use this idea as well. Necron heads... genius.

I think now you seen the backs (thanks for the pic look great by the way) the beret guy has the mask hanging from his belt witch ties it in more than enough. I think i will have to steel this idea aswell they just look to fantastic not too, thanks for the inspiration.................... :thumbup: :vryhppy:

Sgt.Carmine - August 15, 2009 11:26 PM (GMT)
WOW man thats quite simply one of the greatest IG conversions I've ever seen and the paintings fonominal. Love the Army of Two feel. How long you've been in the hobby for.

G3 autoguns I presume?

Have you made or are you thinking of making a veteran with his mask up if so I can't wait to see it.

A heavy weapons team would be awesome...

Thanks man!
I've been in the hobby for about 5 or 6 years.
Yup, the intention was to build a g3 lookalike for his guns. 7.62 full metal jacket ammo is more likely to have AP3 than pansy overcharged lasers :P

The idea for the stormie with the mask up is quite interesting and might be the conversion i'll make for the final stormtrooper of the squad

i love the headskull, it's looking terror's guard, Ilove it !!

Liking the Necron helmets as well. Make sure they dont stick their heads around the corner to check things out. Someone may take a potshot at em thinking they are real Necons. LOL

As for the barrel comment and "giant shotgun of doom" not that there is anything wrong with shotguns i tell ya but have you see the AA12 being developed for the military?

Just a fan of auto-shotguns myself.
But keep up the good work. I really like these simple but yet really effective conversions when i see them. :-)

Love the Storm troopers considering there guardsmen they are rather fearsom looking love to see more of them.

On the subject of the shotgun vid, when it got to the "frag 12" round I thought 'it is a damned bolter'.

jdteixeira - August 24, 2009 08:38 PM (GMT)
That shotgun vid was awesome. That's really demoralizing, at least to be in the recieving end of it :P

It resembles the Korean USAS-12, but without the huge variety of rounds available.

I'll see if shotguns are available to stormies and, if they are, I might build a few. But most likely my veterans will be equipped with them :P

When Sternguard get shotguns....

Sgt.Carmine - August 25, 2009 12:22 AM (GMT)
Beastly, Thats the one word which describes the AA12...

Sadly Stormies don't have access to shotguns but hey, theres a reason why kill-teams/necromunda was invented. Also you could just make/count them as a veteran squad.


darkchild130 - August 27, 2009 10:07 AM (GMT)
Who needs shotguns when you have AP3 lasguns?

I really like your G3 style rifles, very fitting for a weapon with a lot of penetrating power.
