I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops.

 

The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar.

Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head.

With new head (from GW Wood Elves).

These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off.

The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt.

These guys have some extra equipment added.

One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper.

That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.

Of course now that they're unique their widows will grieve when they die on the tabletop...

All the more reason for them to fight harder; now they have something to live for!

 

Thanks, everyone. I did a little more work last night, but nothing terribly picture worthy. We'll see what happens today/this evening.

Nice conversions.  Looking forward to more.

 

I used some GW wood elf heads to convert some GameZone Dark Elves into high elves.  They are nice heads.
