I've been temporarily diverted off my Tomorrow's War jungle colony project this week by all the great 15mm-scale Warhammer 40,000 conversions I'm seeing out there - especially Dan's Tau, Orks, & Sisters of Battle on Gunners Wargaming. So I've been putting together some Inquistorial Scions (Stormtroopers) using Rebel Minis Titan Marines. I've been thinking for a while that they would look good for this purpose, & after a simple paint-up, I'm pleased with the results.
As my first-ever attempt at converting 15mm infantry, I had a go at Green Stuffing a couple of grenade launcher figures, plus a plasma gunner. I'm most pleased with the plasma gun. The grenade launchers came out a little big (although it's 40K, so not really a problem!) & they're not as cylindrical as I'd like. I may try to smooth out the launchers.
If I get round to using these for gaming, I'll be using the excellent Tomorrow's War rule system. Below are some photos of the minis before painting, showing my amateur Green Stuff skills...
The voxcaster is made from a GW Imperial Guard (Astra Militum) Cadian lasgun power pack pouch, with an aerial from an Epic 40,000 Rhino. I based the plasma gunner on the fantastic flamethrower figure (which needed no conversion), cutting down the weapon to build the stubbier plasma gun over it. I squared-off the promethium tanks to make the backpack more like a large energy cell. The grenade launcher blokes have a pack made from a sprue offcut, to match the ammo drum fitted to the weapon.
