Default Most conversions in an army?

Just wandering who has the most conversions in one army? And can anyone beat my total for the army i'm working on at the moment?

My record to date is 97 converted models in a 1500 point, 117 model army :P

Id have to say you might just have the most in an army?

Not shure but sounds like it will have to wait for anyone else to beat that.

I guess I could be evil and throw all my conversions into a single army... >


But you have me beat.

lol, I'll take you ;D

my very slowly up and coming IFists will have almost 100% conversions, true grit, Xarmour, Scratch terminators (hopefully I can be bothered :P) and GS to fill gaps in armour........now if I can just pin down the right combination of colours :-X (you have no Idea how hard it is to match colours to yellow :P)

Default ..and the last 20 models?

So, why didn't you convert the final 20 models if you put in the effort on the other 97? Just curious

Not sure of my total - if you count minor mods, I've done some GS detailing on almost every model I have, my terminators are getting a complete rebuild, most of the troops have some sort of hack and swap done to them - even my very static looking 2nd edition "guys that came with the box set" have gotten some sort of treatment.

Care to post a pic of your force or tell us of your conversions?

This is all I have photographed in this army (right now only 37 guys).* I'll try to get pics of the dev sarge (one of my favorites), term sarge, custom tech marine, more troops and so on. Hoping to add a squad of jetbikes soon (which will count as standard bikes) and have been working on a land speeder troop transport that will be used in place of a Razorback (so nobody argues rules with me). More scouts and terminators are in various states of being built, and they all need lots o paint.

The last 20 models are metal chaos hounds, no real need for conversion, although i might. I'll post some pics as soon as I get some done.

As a teaser though , there are Fast mutants made from guardsmen and gaunts, fast mutants with wings made from hormagaunt claws and green stuff, gibbering hordes iwth all manner of little evil things on the base (rippers with human heads that sort of thing) and now that the plastic Ogres are out I can make Big Mutants, yay.
I have already made 40-odd mutants although most are not painted yet as I have been distracted by Tau.

BTW Justin, I'm most impressed with the GS work on your command models, nicely done. And please tell me your last name isn't really Kase, cause if it is, your parents need a smack in the mouth. It's almost as bad as naming your kid Wayne Kerr. :P
