I've done some SIMPLE conversions in the past--just for a little variety and to also fill in gaps for previously unsculpted models.  Examples:

I took a Centurion and rotated his arm and pistol 90 degrees so that he was shooting gangster style!

I took an OLD dremel bit and added it to the PV Sgt after shaving the shotgun down and made it into a 2nd Edition Chausseur Grenade Launcher specialist.  Topkick now owns this guy.

I also took a Fury Elite Sergeant and chopped his head and one shoulder pad off and placed it on the 1.5" base of the Angel of Fury to make a bloody mess on the ground.  It was a gruesome Christmas present for a friend who plays Muawijhe.

I also took a redemption assassin and turned him into a 2nd edition RL Specialist.  You may say blasphemy when I tell you I used a Multi-Melta from that other game as the RL but it was the only bit I had at the time that looked right.  I then added a punisher pistol to his other hand because in 2nd Edition that is all the RL specialist had--and the humorous story behind it is that my RL once took out my buddy's Meka with JUST the pistol.

I took a Pilgrim (new sculpt) and cut off his AR and added a Gehenna puker.  That one turned out really cool, but I haven't painted it yet.  I was always adamant that they should have a FT specialist!  PIPEDREAM!?

I converted a spare Blade Maiden into an RPG character for a friend.  It was easy.  Cut off the sword, added the haft of a axe and then made a dangly bit for the flail head.  Then slapped a shield on her other arm and VOILA!  There was his Favoured Soul of Hextor!  If you don't play 3.5 then that reference will be lost on you.  Sorry...

I probably have done more but that is all I can think of now.

If you still have the pictures of those conversions you should post them (I can host them for you if you want). The Angel of Mercy with the severed head was particularily nice.

I posted them on the old forum's Gallery.  I am sure I have them somewhere... I'll have to dig them up.

My contribution to the Conversion Showoff.



The arm and the hat is made of green stuff and the weapon is from a Mishima fig.

I really do love that mini.  I'd even be a good stand-in for "Big" Bob Watts.

Nice work and a good, solid action pose!

Yeah, that gets Karma - nice work!
