Conversion Time Again

We played a really good game a few days back, and once I've written it up I'll post it here. In the meantime, I thought I'd share a couple of conversions I've just done...

An Ordo Xenos Inquisitor. This is an old 'Cobalt-1' mini, with the pistol replaced with an old Legion of the Damned bolter, a scout biker stowed shotgun on the back, and a couple of plastic purity seals from the Tactical Marines sprue. I've always thought the character models from the Cobalt-1 range had a distinctly Old School Rogue Trader look to them (probably because they were scuplted by Bob Naismith, who made a lot of the original Rogue Trader Adventurers).

A long while back, my gang was awarded a Graviton Gun following a successful Loot mission. This conversion represents 'Filthy' Lucre, Patrol Drake's melta gunner, carrying the weapon. I used the same bits as I did on the same character carrying the melta, but made the Graviton Gun from a range of components. The bulk of the gun is the flamer from the Cadian Command Squad sprue, but to give it a real retro sci-fi look appropriate to the weapon, I gave it the coil from one of the power field pylons that came in the Battle for Macragge set.


  1. Great conversions...especially the graviton gun!
    I'm gonna have to hunt down some these Cobalt minis...good stuff.

  2. Cheers mate. If you find a good source let me know, I think that one was one of the last out there! I got it from Noble Knight Games, who specialise in out of production stuff :-(

  3. All I could find from them was the space marine style guys...

  4. Bob did a load of character models too, but sadly they seem unavailable...worth looking out for though!
