Another set of examples of how GW is killing creativity in its fans and how hard the new models are to convert.

Back in the day, I made several conversions to add choices to my Redemptionists & to create a gang of Slannesh Devotees; doing so certainly added to my enjoyment of the game.

If you're an absolutely top-tier modeler, the current sets offer tremendous possibilities. If you're just starting on conversions, they're almost impossible to work with.

(Sort of like the painting ability needed for the most beautiful models--I wouldn't bother buying a Lord of Change because it would look terrible with the best paint job I could produce.)

None of those really seem like Necromunda models to me. I can kinda see it in the Redemptionist.

I agree. Good luck squeezing the giant or demon down a jefferies tube!

Plastic is much easier to convert than metal, I agree. Just as it would have been easier for the USA to stay home and push a broom around the base after pearl Harbour.

I do also agree with pics that GW is killing creativity. conversion is a rare case, but they make more money when people cut up half a box for a sword and such. And they still get to sell paints. Also I would assume there would be more appropriate and less costly options to the giant and demon. So I can see GW pushing this kind of conversion.

Those are excellent. Good find. Thanks.

Great stuff!

Great find; thanks for sharing.

Stylistically, I prefer newer GW to older GW. I do like making conversions, however, so a lot of my old GW essentially acts as bits for converting newer stuff. It's a horrendously expensive way to produce a miniature!

I do like a lot of the newer stuff too. There are some old models that are the business but the newer stuff is just much more dynamic for the most part.

The old stuff is great for conversions, you are right about that. The problem with the figures themselves is that it takes forever to cut through the metal if you are using a big chunk. With plastic it is just a couple of quick snips and you are on your way.

True. Plastic is great for beginners that way. Metal takes a lot more skill, patience and persistence. The techniques involved can be very different. Pinning is mostly not needed with plastic.

Luckily for us other companies are keeping these traditions alive.

Lovely figures. I notice following the link that they are described as Inquisimunda figures and I think this is more reasonable since they would be more suited to games of Inquisitor rescaled to 28mm tnan Necromunda itself.

The H Man Supporting Member of TMP24 Sep 2017 1:44 p.m. PST

Yes. Well done. That makes a lot more sense.

These are incredible, really inspirational!

Good use of some old Warzone models, too
