Default Stormie conversion

Just a thought...I personally am not that keen on the old stormie models, plus they're a bit too "teched up" for my background, and the Kasrkin are too distinctly Cadian. So, I was puzzling over it, and I thought "Chaos Warriors!". You know, the funky Fantasy guys with the fur cloaks. My army has a distinctly wintery theme, and the fur cloaks look nice and warm, plus the armour looks fairly bulky. So what I plan to do is use the Warrior hands and legs, with bare Cadian heads with greenstuff gas masks, with normal Cadian lasgun arms, with beefed up lasguns with the sniper sights from the SM Tac Squad sprue to represent targeters, and cables leading from the powerpack ports to their backs. I do however have a few qualms about the heads, as bare heads are rather unprotected while the Cadian helmets look out of place with all that arcane gear. Anyway, any ideas as to how I could improve it? By the way, thanks to the execution of all things, as he gave me the idea for the Chaos blokes aeons ago in one of my first topics.

Green stuff on some ww1 style helmets - you can even give your sergeants plumes...

Hmm...me likes the idea of WWI helmets, and me also REALLY likes the idea of plumes. When you say WWI helmets, are we talking the Allied things, or the German ones with the pointy bits? Because I really can't see plumes on a WWI British helmet working.

These might work: http://www.bwbits.com/product/3852

Or you could use a few of the chaos marauder heads, maybe cut off the viking horns to make them less chaosy. There is a really good head with no helmet and a beard.

Not sure the Space Wolf heads would do for what I want - I'm looking for something a little more well protected.
