Default Iz be mad!!!! (Things about converting

Ok is their anything in the Ork army that is actually worth converting
For example: Necron Warriors can be converted into Immortals (with skills and patience of course! ) but is their anything for an Ork. Obviously a boy can just turn into a nob unless itd be a Ork Nob Midget which would look ridiculously Embarressing if you are using it in a tourny etc.
Post if you can think of anything that will turn a unit to something more special like a boy into a commando, yet another boy into a tank busta or a warboss into ghasszul wateva warlord
Warhammer 40k Armies:
Green Nutz' Tribe (60%), The "Frozen Cold" SM chapter (50%)

There are 3 threads in the Ork Library in which someone converts normal Boyz into Tankbustas, Burna Boyz and Stormboyz. I advice you to check them out

Kommandos are easy, just give them a stikkbomb backpack or the stikkbomb arm (one of mine has a stikkbomb chucka from a trukk nailed to his slugga ;D) and they're worth it.

With enough skill and the right spare parts, almost any model in the ork force can be converted into a different one.

I took a normal biker and turned him into my rendition of Gutsmek; put a load of extra shoota barrels on his dakka guns, replaced his hand with an oversized chainsword, put a shoota from the old truck model onto his shoulder, then the bosspole with the grot on it even got some guns attaches, call him the Dakka-run now

Anyway, just an example. I love the orks because you can make them more of a personal army than any other force in 40k. Happy hunting =)
We're da best. Think diffrent do ya? Come and have a go then, ya runty little wimp!

I find Orks to be, by far, the best and easiest for converting. I have converted a bunch of spare parts from my Bitz Box to make a unit of 5 kommandos, all equipped with kustom gunz, overburdened backpacks and a bunch of other dead sneaky tools such as scope goggles, an uzi, a silenced pistol, and a pump action shotgun, and I didn't use a single bit of green stuff.

I also have a unit of tankbustas in the works, and I converted a whole Land Raider Crusader into a looted wagon complete with a huge Boomgun (kinda wish I could keep the armor of the LRC though...)

I'm crazy about converting Orks, so if you feel you may need some advice feel free to PM me.
Can't da Orks an' 'Oomies just... get along?

you can turn nobs into flashgitz by adding more armour and giving him more dakka for his gun
