Default conversion parts


im thinking of starting a small IG army. i want to make them original so i was going to change all the heads. Something like the head off this commander would be the sort of ting i would go for.
but anything not over the top would be good (i want it to be an alteration not a focus point). yeah so if anyone knows some plastic heads that fit the profile could u post a link. thanks

i may be wrong but should this be in the hobby section?

maybe the elector(sp?) count from empire range, but they are metals so would cost a lot

There's a head similiar to that on the Empire militia sprue. If you want a slightly different fantasy look you could try ordering these:

You can get Necromunda Van Saar heads from the Classic Models and Specialty Games catalog. They're 3 for a dollar and they're metal. I own the catalog so if you want I can just give you the part number for them.

If you're not famaliar with Necromunda at all the Van Saar models have beards and I personally think they make good heads for commanders but could be really cool to just add here and there throughout your army.

Or just go around your local club and ask, or alternatively suggest a trading/ swap meet at your local club and get people to bring along their bitz boxes

ive seen that before, a guy on a website wanted to make his IG more WW1 so he put on bretonnia man at arms heads, and i have to say, it looks cool.

i like that idea...i think i might do that. ;D
