    Best Regiment to Team conversion

    While our current league is going on, I'd like to work on a conversion for my next team. I'd like to keep it to one regiment box and some green stuff.

    Does anyone have any regiment boxes that they've had particular sucess with?

    I'm thinking either a dwarf team from a Warriors box, or a skaven team from a Night runners box.

    HE - Archers
    Orc - WHFB Orcs

    Both were quite easy to convert to BB minis

    I've done a night gobbo team using the old plastics. It was fairly easy, and mostly involved removing spears.
    I'm just surprised i remembered my old log in details.

    the khemri team is basically just metal skellies, very easy

    you'd have to get some mummies though, thoguh you could GS them

    I used 40K orks for my line men. Nice and "beefier" than the weeds you get in the Bloodbowl team box. Makes the team look that much more imposing.

    I know you said 1 box, but I also used WFB black orcs with the weapons removed as my teams black orcs.

    Cant beat the normal blitzers though.

    Well I converted this team from the old dwarf warriors box with the addition of 2 slayers.
    The shoulder pads are from space marines.

    I'm also working on a dark elf team using plastic warriors for the linemen.
    But the positionals will be made from metal players as they would all look too similar otherwise.

    Wood elves could work quite well, only the wardancers look that different and you could always add a mask to them.
    Khemri are dead easy, just use skellies for the linemen and add some extra bits for the thro-ra and armour for the blitz-ras.
    Mummies can be made by cutting paper into very long thin strips dipping it in PVA glue and covering a skeleton in it, comedy 50's horror style mummy.

    No pics, but I've a Skaven team built from a Skaven WFB plastic set (with a few spare bits and pieces from the Mordheim sprues), and a lizzie team built from the Saurus and Skink plastics (though unfortunatly that means two regiment boxes).

    1. I concurr with the norsefrom marauders. The "young" topknot heads are good for on catchers as the "youth" implies that they are more reckless and thus willing to run out with the ball. The bare head with the winblown beard painted grey make for good throwers as thier age wouldmake them "wiser" and thus better suited for that role. The "big hat" or leader helmeted heads plus capes make for great looking blitzers.
    2. Skeletons and zombies for the undead type teams. (Necrons could make for an interesting take on BB skeletons specially designed for the role.) Of course, youd need to get ghouls, mumies and wightsseperate butthe wights could be converted out of skeletons and ghouls from zombies. Heck, you might even be able to convert some into mummies with wrapping them in strips of greenstuff.
    3. Skaven can do well. You need to be creative though. The ratskull heads can represent gutter runners and paint jobs and extra armor bits can make some appear to be storm vermin. Creative posing or numbers can make for the throwers, especially if you add the football to the hand as an extra visual.
    4. Dwarves. I did a team with these. Been a whileand the team was stolen from my buddy when his house got broken into. I think creative placement of the spare "add on" horns can make for blitzers and I cant remember how I did the runners. Like the skaven, you gotta be creative. Gotta get trollslayers extra or convert.
    5. Beastmen and chaos warriers are the easiest conversion I have for this. Just clip offweapons and boom, you got a team. best, if you can find another chaos player or just order as many warrier sprues as you need to get them without having to buy a whole box.
    6. Lizardmen pretty much the same as for chaos only use skinks and sauruses.


    All of the above, I did not include the big guys for obviously, youdneed to get those extra.

    I have used Dark Eldar sprues for both my Dark Elf and High Elf teams.

    I trimmed down the shoulder pads, so it looks like they are wearing spandex and American Football shoulder pads.

    Re: Best Regiment to Team conversion

    I used Marauders for my Norseman team.

    I used a very simple and effective way of showing who was who.

    The Blitzers have 2 shoulder pads, Linemen 1 and catchers and throwers have no pads and no helmet. The rest is upto body positions to suggest what sort of action they are doing.

    I think that the 40k Orks box would makegive you the easiest convertion possibilities.

    For my Chaos team, I used plastic Chaos Warriors, and Chaos Marauders to represent the Beastmen as they have pointy helmets to represent the Horns trait (I was doing a Chaos Mortals themed team at the time).

    Thats a good "counts as" possibility that I had not thought of. Kudos.

    I made what I feel is a pretty convincing team out of the cadian IG sprue. I'll hunt around for some pics.
