Its a converters life - Creating and Converting in the Age of Sigmar

Melcavuk

555 views

As some of you may know I've been at this for a fairly long time now, converting and making news things is the main lure of the hobby for me and I'll fit games in around that. However there are times that I get stuck in the void between projects where I am starved of inspiration and desperately need something to spark off a chain of ideas that can form the basis for my themes. To do this I often start trawling around various blogs and websites in search of something that clicks into place, or wander the exhibit hall at warhammer world searching for a model, component or bit of scenery that I can build my own ideas around. I'm glad to say that this works 99% of the time, and since I have for years been an inspiration leech off of others works I figured its about time to pay some of that back into the community.

Below are most of my conversions for the last two years, I've left off the Suneaters as they can be found in the rest of this blog, and the latest Idoneth because I have a live thread in the painting and modelling section for them. This isnt me saying "I'm so good at this, you must learn from me", its my way of paying back all those who have inspired me throughout the years that hopefully anyone searching for a glimmer of inspiration can see some of my old works and make a newer, better and more cohesive idea based off of them.

I have explored maaaaaany army in the last two years, in part due to the rich tapestry that is the potential of age of sigmar and in part because my partner is overly supportive of my hobbies, I tend to avoid chaos as I like it more as a taint on an otherwise differently inclined faction rather than a thing as a whole but otherwise have explored most races (barring dwarves, cant get behind converting them for some reason).

So thanks for reading, and feel free to browse what is a massive photo dump to follow, feel free to ask any questions and I hope if you're seeking inspiration there's something there to spark it.

That is a massive mound of fantastic conversions - small neat ideas and bigger projects! Really great to see esp with the good painting on top. Love the fire elves twist that you've got going though the burning chaos critters at the very start really stand out

There is some really nice (and partly really expensive) stuff here.

Hm, why do I have the feeling, that I have seen lions in such colors before  ?

Cheers guys, 

 

I’m far better at doing small focused conversion projects than full gaming armies. Thus far the Fire Aelves and Suneaters have been my more long running projects in terms of complete armies. Though I’m beginning to get the modelling wanderlust again and something about the idoneth just isn’t clicking with me right now

Hey man, I really love the way you have reposed and converted the gargants. Could you give some tips on how to repose their legs, arms, and what other kits synergize well with them from a kitbashing standpoint?
