PostSubject: Converting Chaos Termis!   Thu May 29, 2008 10:23 am

Ok, so I am thinking about converting Chaos Termis into Wolf Guard Termis...since they look meaner than the regular space marine termis, and since I have access to more options with the Chaos Termis...

So how difficult is it to convert them to look less Chaos-y? Any help would be awesome since I don't want to waste 50 on a project that fails!

Chaos in never a waste. Every Dollar spent on Chaos is one step closer to Enlightenment.

Check out my post in the WIP section.... I used the storm bolter and power ax arms for a Chaos Lord to be a storm bolter and Thunderhammer arm for a Inquisitor Lord! It's fairly easy, though there is a lot of trimming of spikes and markings (the storm bolter had demonic faces on it that I had to slice off, and a few hooks and spikes). overall, as long as you trim off the spikey chaosy stuff, I'm sure it wouldn't be too tough (though, it would take a while, IMO)

Your WIP is what gave me the idea. But if it's a lot of work, I cannot do it, since the timing is all off! scratch I don't have a ton of time to work on Conversions!


Five guys, trimmed and GS could be a lot of work!

Don't know if it would be too horrible, though, looking at the minis for the Chaos guys....

You would need the SW shoulder pads, some termie heads, and trim up the sets of legs and the weapon arms... You could probably even use the normal SM chest plates instead of trimming as well, though you could file off the faces and what not on these guys.... For me, I think this type of conversion, as long as I had everything, would take about 4 hours total to do. I don't know how long you take to assemble, though... That Inquisitor Lord took probably about 1.5 hours, though I was trying to take my time with it...

I was going too, but the turn around time from Forgeworld was 4-6 weeks, and since I need the army done and painted by Origins (last week of June) it aint going to happen! Suspect

It's really not too bad, and if you find you can't trim something off, cover it with pelts (not too hard to handle with GS) or purity seals.

Chaos armor is normally just old Mk. marine armor. So it all makes sense for older chapters as long as you trim up the really chaotic stuff.

The work would definitely be worth it, you'd have something pretty unique looking models once you are done.

Good luck!
