Pictures from Warhammer in Progress
Sometimes it's as simple as a head swap to get the right look you want. Other times, it can be building a whole new model from parts. Either way, getting the right "feel" or look to your model is something we all strive for on one level or another.
This week, I grabbed these pics from Warhammer in Progress. It comes from a previous post where he's showcasing his Nurgle models that double in use for his Daemon force as well.
These guys speak to me as conversions. I think they look great.
They capture the feel of a Nurgle type spawn creature. Something you know is daemonic, something you can't tell what parts are what or where the mouth and eyes are... and you hope you can put enough bullets into it before it reaches your lines.
I've always been jealous of folks who can do this kind of work. Ork players are up there too. Those guys come up with some of the best conversions around as well.
This thing is just mean looking
My friend has some amazing looking Ork battlewagons. Sure, they do the same thing as a regular battlewagon that's not converted at all, but they add so much more to the look of the force after his conversion work. They give the army a certain feel to it.

Next time you get a chance, take a minute and try to capture the "feel" of your force with your conversion work. It doesn't have to be big or involved to be successful, you just have to give it try.
