Thaarup Posted March 14, 2014 Report Share Posted March 14, 2014 Greatings. I am looking for good converting ideas for a couple of models. I have a few 1.5 models that because of edition/rule change have become a bit "redundant". Also because of the design of some of the new 2.0 models, I am wondering if I might convert some of the older models and then get the new models. First of the old pair of "Desperate Mercenaries". As I mainly play Guild, and guild have a lot of cheap useful minions I can´t really see the mercenaries getting any playtime. The other faction I play is Neverborn Lucius/Collodi and lets be honest the mercenaries don´t really fit in or bring anything worthwhile...so instead of letting them collect dust on the shelf I was thinking about doing small to no convertion and change the female into a Pistolero and the male to a Wastrel. Both model have the correct look IMO, so maybe all that is needed is a bit of a different paint job - or what do you think? Next of is my Sonnia crew. I have never loved the old Samael H. look, and I absolutely love the new design of the 2.0 model. But as I already have Samael and Sonnia I would need to convert Samael and then either convert the old or new Sonnia model. I have no idea into what though? I already need the extra Witchling Stalkers and as I only have the three old models, they are not an issue. The Purifying Flame is though. Not sure if I should go for the new one and try converting the old one into maybe the Arcanist effigy? Or maybe use the new Purifying flame to build flaming bases/firewall marker? Another option is of course to just by the extra Witchling Stalkers and drop changing Samael? Another crew box I have been wondering about is the Perdita crewbox. The problem in this case is that I already have Santiago and Nino Ortega, so I would really need to have some sort of converting option for either the new or the old versions of both models. So hope anyone out there have some interesting ideas they would like to share? In the future I am probably going to have some issues with Collodi as I have the 1.5 crew box and as things look at the moment I would need Vasilisa. Thinking about converting one, instead of actually buying the new crewbox, unless she is ofcourse available in a single box. I don´t think there will be any issue with Lucius as his crew seems the same as in 1.5 (model wise)? The scribe might be the only exception, but skipping him doesn´t seem to be that big an issue or maybe just getting a converted Governors proxy could solve it? Any way thanks for "listening" and hope to see some ideas in print Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
