use magnets and bitz from other boxes. Just be careful if your going to put magnets on fire warriors. Also, if you see any random pieces of plastic stuff, get creative ;D

i built 12 human FWs, i figure the next logical step in integrating humans into the empire, after trying them as auxiluries. i also built pathfinders with IG torsos, bare heads, FW legs, and scratch built marker lights on the carbines. the sure are different than normal looking pathfinders.

I tend to mod a lot of my units in some way or another . My favorite so far is converting my commander to look like the commander on the codex (new). I also have a Fire Warrior converted to have dual Pulse Pistols and holsters. There are more, but those are my favorites.

I converted a whole unit for use as a Kill Team.

Still have not gotten around to painting them, though.

Have a look around in the Conversions forum. There are a lot of good ideas in there on how to add a little extra interest to your Fire Warriors teams.

I customized my latest squad when I got some inspiration from the Star Wars Arc Troopers. Squad leader has two pulse pistols and 2 squad members have burst cannons and of course the whole team has a Devilfish to ride in. I also modified many of the other members and added bits to their packs to make it look like they carry more equipment. Rules wise their a house rules kill team. Legally I drop the 2 BC users and its a 10 man FW Team.

note on burst convertion:
pirana size = perfect for infantry hand held
battle suit size = sentry turrets
tank burst size: battle suits for a heavyer look and of course warfish turrets

i just did a tau sentery/weapon platform so check the convertion board

i dont think you all understand what i mean, what you do with several units[eg have a comm experert, engineer in every fw squad, give all your vehicles banners ect] not just 1[1 is a conversion]

We got what you mean. You asked what we do to customize, thats what we do. Ive seen a Tau army where every Firewarrior had a banner on their back and those that the Etherial joined wore no helmets. Thats just one way to customize. When you customize a force it doesnt have to have every single trooper converted or modified. A touch here and there can be all you need to represent a comm expert, a medic etc. Nor does an entire armies customizations have to be the same.
