Default hate metal models

i love metal models i'd dearly kill to be able to paint and st6ick them together, I do have a couple of metal cadians and also a couple of metal catachans, but i wouldn't for the life of me collect armageedon legions, unless they were militia converted with plastic, aand stuff like that..

now, i see unique's point (both of them), but i must say: additional to painting and gluing, metal models cost much more than plastics. look at cadians vs. steel legion! but, i wish i knew someone who worked for GW, and tell them to plasticize valhallans...

also, please do refrain from frivolous email; it bogs down the network.

if you are simply wanting to convert weapons, first off, a good pair of wire clippers. saws just never worked for me. also, some putty will be invalueable for filling in gaps, and even some reconstruction. i know youre saying you're not a pro model design, but every one can spend some time and remodel a leg. or, for limbs, scratch built bionic limbs always look great. as long as one has the right equipment, you can always at least come equal with the quality of a conversion.

i never thought of scratch built bionics.
I cant model with greenstuff (i never have), and the only metal model i ever converted was Naaman for my marine scout army. but that was a simple 'cut and paste' and that was easy. lol

Well, the thing is with green stuff is that you never get any better if you never use any of the stuff... Thats the major part of modelling section of the hobby. If you don't do, you don't learn... So do get some greenstuff and then get some old models you don't mind losing in botched attempts and try to do something creative with them, maybe changing your pose or giving them a cloak maybe... If after a few attempts your still not any good at converting metal minis with GS, then your only a few bucks down and a whole lot wiser...
