not sure if anyone else put something like this up, so...here i go.

I need pictures for inspiration of models that any1 has for =][=
Im not sure wether to use 40k models or the 52mm ones, and what better way to decide than to c pictures of other people's models.

Any specificly converted 40k models are fantastically welcome.

Yamagon, you can't go wrong with looking at Kaled's stuff. Very inspiring.

Here's my gallery (the models have been sorted into their respective folders)

All of these are fantastic.

How did u manage to do so many conversions based on the current range of models for =][=? All i can think of is simple weapon or head swaps? Do u have a particular source for extra parts or do u sculpt them urself?

It varies for each person, some use a selection of GW parts from all the ranges [except lotr ofc ;)] majoritably from the inquisitor range. Some use parts off 54mm models from other manufacturers and others scratch build using green stuff/procreate, plasticard and a butchery of other parts and bits.

As stupid as it sounds but using lesser used parts and a striking color scheme can create a totaly different model. Kaled's Ostrakov (http://www.kaled100.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ostrakov.jpg) even though he's the umpteenth Eissenhorn conversion I've seen he's a bit different, because he used Malicant's head and painted him blue.

If you have a quick look over the old conclave (http://www.specialist-games.com/inquisitor/forum_b/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=6) before it disappeares [31th March] or the new conclave (http://www.the-conclave.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=3&sid=6bd5167d99182a097937aa307e54d80e) for some insperation.

I'll admit I'm not sculpting/painting god, but I like to think I can at least be a damned good muse.

How did u manage to do so many conversions based on the current range of models for =][=? All i can think of is simple weapon or head swaps? Do u have a particular source for extra parts or do u sculpt them urself?The current GW range is pretty small, but there's still a lot of scope for interesting an original conversions. You can often pick up stuff on eBay quite cheap, and manufacturers like Andrea, Pegaso and Romeo do loads of great 54mm models (Historex (http://www.historexagents.com/shop/hxshop.php) is a good source if you're in the UK). The Arcadian Smuggler's Ring (http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/arcadiansmugglers/) is a good source of parts too. A surprising amout of 28mm parts work well at 54mm too due to the 'heroic' scale of GWs 28mm range.

For example, this (http://www.kaled100.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/kryzak.JPG) is basically an Andrea model (of Kane from Alien) with a 28mm servo-harness (and a couple of other bits) added - it's undoubtably a simple conversion within most people's abilities, but is interesting and original (at least, I've never seen another one like it).

Head and arm or weapon swaps are a good start, and as you do more you'll find you'll have to use greenstuff to fill gaps. Once you've done that a few times you'll be surprised at how easy it becomes (with practice) to sculpt things that you can't get elsewhere.

There is a bigger range available at 28mm, but it doesn't really push your modelling abilities or imagination as much as working out how do realise your vision at 54mm - my modelling ability has increased tenfold since I started doing 54mm stuff.

Thankx alot again,
Although there seems to be a pretty good collection of 52mm models, do many people convert 40k models for inquisitor (i.e. 40k scale inquisitor) or do they just get of your tree models and slap them together, paint them, and thats it.

If people do convert their own 40k models, does any1 have any pics?

My gallery is at WWB (see sig). I have played Inq28 in the past and plan to do so again in the future, with some custom-converted models for that purpose, but I don't have any in my collection at the moment.

I don't know anyone who does three models and then stops. Converting and building at 54mm tends to become an obsession. I have about 30 models, and I my collection is positively negligible compared to some I could mention.

I've got to agree with PO that not converting 54mm models is hard. It's like making a detailed version of a hardened veteran squad, there's so much character you can put into a model.

Inq28 is fine just beware of the marines!

Kaled, you're painting and conversion of most of those Inquisitor models is brilliant. I wish I had the time and skill to do such good work myself. Great stuff.

Kaled, may I ask if you sculpted the helmeted head on that Mentor, or was it an extra part for customization? I'd be interested in having a Space Wolf in my game (I know.. not very fluffy.. But the book Ragnar's Claw was all about that).

Also, would you mind telling me where you got the bodies for the two Blackship officers? Specifically that Admiral. I've had a project in mind to model my BFG Lord Admiral as I don't think the navy boys are shown enough, but I haven't had the means to do it yet. (Was planning to use the Baneblade officer..)

I especially dig the western look on the second pic of your Inquisitor.

Just to say, I love the butcher chappy, the guy in the black coat and the helmeted guard, brilliant stuff :)

Kaled, may I ask if you sculpted the helmeted head on that Mentor, or was it an extra part for customization?It was from the helmet booster pack - I don't think it's available at the minute, but hopefully it'll return fairly soon, or you might be able to find one on eBay.


Also, would you mind telling me where you got the bodies for the two Blackship officers? Specifically that Admiral.The Blackship Officer is based on a model of Spock by Andrea miniatures, the Navy Admiral is based on a model of Marshall Zukov by Pegaso Miniatures. Both have been converted slightly, but it was fairly simple.

If you're interested in the Navy, you might want to check out my thread on building a new warband for Kaled which has a definiate Navy influence. At the moment I'm sculpting a Naval Stormtrooper who used to serve aboard a Shark Class Assault Boat, but has now been recruited by Kaled.

I tend to post more at the Conclave (http://the-conclave.co.uk/forum/) - if you look in the Painting & Modelling forum you should be able to find more details of my models. For the older ones you'll need to look at the Conclave's old home (http://www.specialist-games.com/inquisitor/forum_b).


I especially dig the western look on the second pic of your Inquisitor.Thanks. He has that western look because he was based on a model of Wyatt Earp from Andrea. :)

If you're in the UK, Historex (http://www.historexagents.com/shop/hxshop.php) is a good source of 54mm miniatures - I've used them quite a bit and have had nothing but good service.

Thanks for the info.

Now that I think about it, every 'character' Space Wolf I can think of has always gone without a helmet. I also have no problems sculpting hair (I don't think.. no one has judged me yet), but beards and braids seem to give me a true problem.

Oh well. Things to worry about later. I should be getting a rulebook first.

Oh well. Things to worry about later. I should be getting a rulebook first.Just download the rulebook - that way you get the latest incarnation of the rules for free. Having a hard copy of the rulebook is useful, but you can pick them up fairly cheaply on eBay.

More importantly, getting the rulebook for free means you have more money to spend on models! :)

"The page cannot be displayed"Hmmm, maybe it's your computer because it worked for me at home last night and it's working for me from here too.

Can anyone else access the site?

EDIT: It seems other people have the same problem - you might like to try this (copied from the SG forums).

I just figured out the problem. Those of us in the USA are blocked from the SG website as the GW new website it live.

You must cleanse your internet history and the USA people will be asked to pick a location. If you pick the USA you will be blocked. Pick another country, I picked Australia and I was able to get to the SG Home page.

It works now.. the GW main site anyway. I am uncertain about Specialist Games at the moment. I should also note that I won an auction for the rulebook last night (A steal at $10.10, shipping included). And I located auctions for Eisenhorn, Tyrus and battle-brother Artemis.

Here are some pictures of a couple of character that me and my girlfriend have worked on, including: a marine with a multi melta

I really like the Barbaretta conversion. The pose is great and it's nice to see the helmet without a visor being used for a change. The guy with the sword is pretty cool too, I like the tattoo on his head. Two questions though, what's the gun he's using? I can't make it out in the picture. Also, what's he supposed to be, so some of cult-assassin? A desperado? Something else?

The marine is my least favourite, which is a shame because it's obvious a lot of work went into him. Actually, I quite like what you've done with the marine, it's his weapon I don't like. It just seems a bit crude somehow. Still, I bet people keeps their heads down when he turns up!

the guys gun is a necromunda gun i foud i just added a belt ammo feed from a old chaos heavy bolter. i use the gun as a stubber and he's just a frelance assassin with the same ideals as a desparado. The marine was fun to make the multi melta is just layers of plasticatd and foam with pins here and there.

Nice warband. Some useful little conversions - I particularly like the shoulder-mounted laspistol. The base on the ranger is too big for game-use, IMO. I assume he's more a display piece?
