I know there are quite a few links, and perhaps not everyone would like to view them all. And i

understand that, but if you have spare time, or aren't doing anything, i would appreciate it if you

could look at my mods, and tell me what you think of them, and how i could improve them.


Just because im new, be truthful. Thanks

1. This should be in the Conversion forums probably. I'm sure a mod will move it soon.

2. Your stuff looks pretty good overall. I like the color scheme though the pose on that battlesuit makes me wish you'd done more than just stick an axe next to him.

Oops, sorry i didnt see it... :-[

If a mod sees this can they please move it right away then


im glad you like most of them. The battlesuit with the axe was meant to look like he was holding it onto

the ground looking straight ahead... looks like i failed with that attempt. Unless you mean that he's not

holding onto it with any fingers, and in that case, i didnt have anything to make them with at the moment,

and may make some for it in the near future.


Thanks for looking at them

is it possible for me to move this thread on my own? or even delete it and re-post it there?

I personally think that the dual pulse rifles is pretty hardcore. You may want to use green stuff for the fingers on the crisis suit. I'm a big fan of conversions and I think that you're off to a good start.

Double posting is alright as a first offense. There is a modify button in the upper right hand corner of the post. I do like the twin plasma rifles. Thanks for that picture, because I've always wanted to know a good way to do that, in order to make my commander cool. Oh, the heavy pulse rifle is awesome too.

Cheers!

Ya, i had a hard time trying to think of a way to do it too. The wire connecting it is from a spacemarine

terminator lightning claw i had.

Glad you liked them

The Conversion board is a sub-board of the Hobby Board.

heavy pulse was a neat idea, itd be pretty fun to write up some specs for that: S6 AP4 Range 48" heavy 2
but if you move then they cant shoot.

nice ideas, keep them up.
