Default marbo stand in?

What would yall think of a custom made marbo made out of a death cult assasin, modeled with all the proper stuff (home made ripper pistol with silencer, meltabombs, and demo Charge)?

Aren't DC assassins pretty thin? Marbo is supposed to be a Catachan, so he'll need to be well muscled, at least to be accurate with the fluff. Other than that, sounds decent.

You want a good Marbo stand in? Basically, just make a model of this guy:


Catachan model, big knife, headband, and a big gun. People will recognize him as Marbo no problem.

Hi,

I think that the model is brilliant and so really in my opinion it is not worth trying this conversion and instead just use the model.

Problem is I want my "marbo" to be a sleek thin assasin. It won't be Marbo per say but another character just using his rules.

In that case I would say a DC conversion would work well for what you're after.

yeah it was hard to decide I almost used a calladius cause i'm a big fan of katars.... but in the end the katana wins out.
