Since several models within the epic range have become nigh impossible to obtain I have resorted to new methods of representing some of my models for the game. I am by no means an expert or savant when it comes to model conversions but the items below were a few things I came up with recently that I thought turned out rather nicely.

Eldar Firestorm (cut away the original pulse/scatter lasers of the original falcon, and then cut down the gatling cannons from OTC tanks and attached them to the end of the turret cockpit and the original weapon mounts):
Image

Eldar Nightspinner (completely removed the falcon turret, cut off the spinner from the old school model- can't quite remember what they are called- and then mashed the two together with some glue, nothing fancy but it's a nice alternative take on the design I think):
Image

Ork Supa-Zzap-guns (basically the Oddboy Zzap gun option for the bug gunz formation, all models are from TMG with the zzap gun essentially being 2 of the more unique gun mounts attached to one another in order to make a SUPA gun! If that's not orky ingenuity at its finest then I don't know what is! :P):
Image

Ork Sup-Zzap-gun gunwagon (basically two old school designs put together- bone cruncha + speedsta lifta droppa turret, it's not the most eloquent and I haven't quite finished the design so it hasn't been glued together yet, might make a few changes here and there):
Image

Ork Soopagun gunwagon (basically a bonebreaka hull, turret is a combination of the cannon from the bonebreaka turret, and the turret is the remains of a weirdboy battle tower, I really like the design but feel the pictures don't do it justice):
Image

Space Marine Stormtalon counts as T. Bolt (So I basically took the piranha gunship from DRM, cut off the top rotor section, cut down the outer most wing segment, attached the engines from an OTC tank in its place, and then used some random metal pieces, bent them into a V shape and attached them as tail fins. I have seen some 6mm stormtalons out and about elsewhere and while I would love to get a hold of them I think this should hold me over in the mean time! :)):

Thanks guys. Glad you liked them. I hope they help folks that may be missing a particular unit for their armies. Now if I can only get myself to paint them. :)

Great work on the talon conversion it looks awesome :) sometimes the most simple conversions work out the best and in this case it did, great idea well done ;)

Eldar project continued... I decided to make a Biel Tan army but in the color scheme of Ulthwe! Long story short these are the "Autarch" and "Exarch" for the Shining Spears, AKA Seer Council and Warlock support!

I'm also going to have it where Farseers in guardian formations will be modeled as Warlocks. Considering how powerful Ulthwe psychers can be, it may come as no surprise that Ulthwe Warlocks are comparable to "regular" farseers on the battlefield! My other rationale is that based on the fluff Warlocks, not farseers, tended to lead individual guardians squads into battle... or perhaps the real reason lies in running out of farseer models... :P

Thanks guys. It's been fun so far. I am finally getting around to priming a lot of this stuff so I'm hoping to begin painting soon enough. Slowly but surely! :)
