this is my first full conversion that i tried. I used a couple of ork bits and some tau bits. please tell me what you think. my only problem was the tau legs which i tried to fix with armor plating.

please give me any feedback you can. my favorite part of the hobby is building and so i would love to get better at conversions.

first thing about conversion is: don't do something that just doesn't work :p

I think you should stick with some normal legs instead of tau legs, since you just cover them with plates anyways :)

Sometimes, a good way to practice conversions is to get a battalion and try to put pieces that don't match on to others.

this picture is a chaos warrior I did, but I took the shield and lance from a Knight, slapped a shoulder plate on it. it makes a huge difference without making it harder on yourself to assemble/paint and cover up :P

I definitely agree. the thing is, I had no more space marine legs. i was using bits given to me by a friend. i tried to cover up the tau legs as much as possible but....tau legs. until i get new sets i will focus on modifying my normal army.

here is the sergeant i made using two grey knight bits. the halberd and the helmet. i did this a few months ago while building my army.

Ah yea, when you're needing bits then its kinda hard to keep going hehe :)

but yea, the rule is pretty much "Less is more". Nice Sergeant btw, although game wise I don't think he can use a halberd, but as you said, you're more about building and painting rather than gaming, just like me :)

i just replaced the tau arm with a space marine arm wielding a power sword. I think it looks a lot better with that.

game wise it counts as a power weapon. i'm trying to get bits from all of my different friends. my friend who plays orks gave me soooo many bits.

Since i can no longer edit this content, i would like to ask any viewers to help me come up with a name for my conversion. I was thinking something like "mecha trooper/commander" or something like that. I would love any suggestions.

those are bloodravens who cares what they think, lol.
some chapters do use xeno weapons, relictors and the like. not to mention Yarick's powerclaw. i know he isnt a space marine but even so he is still a badass

good thing i changed it to a power sword. however my guy likes to use the weapons of his enemies as clubs sometimes.
