About this blog

Half of the fun I get out of warhammer is turning cheap stuff into more expensive stuff as well as making my own stuff look unique. This blog will chronicle the sets i purchase and what i turn those sets into.

Chaos warriors part 1

3 little chaos warriors sitting in a box

A nice cheap way to get involved with the hobby, also not as open to conversions as other boxes but we still have options

Swapping heads is always quite easy and by using a plume from another unit you can add eldritch fire and make a Wightking with tomb blade

Looks pretty good imo

I used one of the other ones to make an inquisitor

I have one more to go and I'm not sure what I'll turn him into but I'll think if something

Chaos Cultists part 2

I screwed up a little bit, got ditracted and then decided to make an inquisitorial warband out of most of my remaining cultists so more conversions will have to wait until I next get a box.

However before I did that, I did use one cultist to make a grave guard for a death warband which with some more armour parts could be used as a wight king with black axe

Also with a different head this guy could be a sigmarite priest

and here's the warband all hanging out

I'll be back with more cultists, they're so good for converting, I'll just try to stay focused this time :P

The chaos cultists have shown up in more blanchitsu articles than almost any other model (lord of plagues being the most common one, the amount of times that guy has shown up is almost comical). So let us see what AOS heroes can be made from within the exceptionally cheap box.

Well the most obvious hero I could think of was the necromancer, with a few skulls, a wildwood ranger head and some other bits, one can make a passable necromancer.

We still have 4 models to go in the box but I'm going to increase my bits box slightly before I commit to any more conversions.

Next time: more chaos cultists

you see plague marines? i see a multitude of options... buy multitude i mean 3

with 3 easy to build plague marines and some bits and too much time with a damn pocket knife and pair of clippers one can create

20180130_103950.jpg.244a32c4e34d00c7de7679efc53ec57e.jpg

a Lord of blights

20180130_121325.jpg.5ff6a67237f8ede947108c543144cb0f.jpg

A lord of Plagues

20180130_121309.jpg.12a6e5fd5d59b50306fb42f44faa3817.jpg

And a putrid blightking

Or just 3 putrid blightkings, with more skill and some green stuff these options could be even better.

Cost of the official models 

Lord of Blights $40 aud

Lord of Plagues $22 aud

Putrid blightkins $18 per model (box of 5 for $40)

our cost $25 plus bits

The storm of sigmar box is a good value little box and pretty decent gateway drug into age of sigmar, unfortunately all the models within are of the "easy to build" variety and i thought had limited options for conversion, That was until i started tearing them to Pieces and cutting all their limbs and heads off.

So what parts do i have out of the box

60010299007_StormofSigmarENG01.jpg

2 retributors

3 Liberators

3 Blood Warriors

5 Blood Reavers

What can we make out of these?

Firstly the stormcast models are all sort of based around the same set of Chassis either a liberator or retributor body and from that base we can build quite a few of the stormcast heroes

Firstly, the most easy is the knight questor

99070218011_KnightQuestor01.jpg

We can see that the base is pretty much the liberator prime

60010299007_StormofSigmarENG03.jpg

So after some cutting and filing and with a spare power sword and a pretty unnecessary head swap

tumblr_p2h17cm4Eb1swqxoeo1_1280.jpg

As you can see i did some stuff to the other liberators but they may soon have their bodies scavenger in order to make something else

Next up we have the retributors and they are pretty versatile

Forming the base for the Lord Relictor

and the knight vexillor

99070218002_StormcastKnightVexillor01.jp

Among others but seeing as you only get 2 retributors in the box

As for the bloodbound we've got some fun stuff

you can make lords of chaos or khorne skullreapers

 

tumblr_p38qpvnaHE1swqxoeo2_1280.jpg

Wight kings

tumblr_p38k5mMZLK1swqxoeo1_1280.jpg

And Sigmar War priests/ excelsior warpriests

tumblr_p38qosHBdL1swqxoeo1_1280.jpg

So for out of a $55 australian, box I have wrung approximately $232 aud of heroes which all look adequately fancy and I've still got a few units to mess around with

As to where this blog is going now, I've got my eyes on the easy to build Plague Marines box and some chaos warrior parts

we'll see where it leads.

Know of any kits that are perfect for turning into other stuff? Know of any kits full of bits I can use? Know of any cheap kits that just kinda maybe look like more expensive ones if you squint? Then tell me in the comments and I'll muck around and see what I can do.
