not sure if you all know but I love doing conversions and recently stumbled onto this:

Conversion item #1



the same guy also sells a range of demonic wings as well.

Can we use this thread to identify those companies that make/sell conversion bitz. Also if you have any great conversion ideas list them here.

Would be nice to set up some sort of bitz trade where we can get parts from each other to make it easier to make the squads we want.

I am really tempted to get those Hasselfree arms for some Servitor conversions. dam nice.

Cheers

the pre heresy heads are great, checked out their other stuff on chapter house studio, and the quality is really inconsistent, some of their bits are great and in fully on par with GW, but a lot of what they have especially the shoulder pads, are just too poorly sculpted, which is a real shame cause it's a fantastic idea, making shoulder pads for the less endorsed chapters.

Orc Heads with Gas Masks & bodies as well as various other heads, Elf legs and torsos that would work great for exodites,

Don't forget good old scibor... he seems to be getting into conversion bits and the new models he's making are top notch.

The Choas Guy is just awesome (I reckon there will be more of this sort of stuff)

I was at his site a few days ago Laney, looking for thunderwolves, but I completely missed the shoulder pads, I have mental note to do a lion themed chapter someday, and those shoulder pads are really nice, did you check out the helms... They are... well not so good... actually, they are craptastic

I got some bitz arriving soon I'll take some pics and do a review of them for you all.

When I've got enough cash to buy the sanguinary guard and the death company for the blood angels I plan to get some of those shoulder pads for a conversion fest.

@Von Hagel: Yes the lion helms are pretty poor, which is unfortunate (I kind of tactically missed them in favour of the superb shoulder pads). His spartan stuff is quite good though. And the chaos lord makes me want to ditch the imperium and join the heresy!

I'm sure a lot of you know all about this site (especially if you've been around a while and know about the famous and now sought after Armorcast titans - I've personally been outbid on three!). Anyway Armorcast do a great range of cinematic effects, which would really add to the character models in Death Squads (they even sneakily show you what 40k weapons they fit)...



They also have a small range of possible minis (not sure on scale - I would guess 25 - 28mm).

Hi All,

Another addition that might be of use (and is growing) is paulson games...
http://www.paulsongames.com/resin.html

They have space wolves and blood angel bits that might be useful for conversions.

And... check out the new maxmini efforts (especially the bionic legs which look awesome!).

Worth a look

The coolminiornot site has quite a few enigma miniatures for sale (and in dollars), don't know if that is any better?

I recently found this forum which has a lot of conversion work going on, might give people some ideas.

Puppetswar is a site I've just come across that looks pretty cool... Lots of conversion bits and more on the way (reminds me of maxmini)...

Here's a couple of pics...




Laney Very Happy

This is a weird site and very expensive, but if you are after that 'gun bling' you just can't make yourself, maybe lego has the answer!

The underslung grenade launchers and folding stocks had me interested and they are not a bad scale (minifig size)



Cheers Laney Very Happy
