Well, as I'm sure most of you have seen, the new Age of Sigmar series has dawned and, whether people seem to like them or not, the new Sigmar's Stormcast Eternal models have seem to have gotten a heaping load of comments mentioning how they'd be good for Sanguinary Guard conversions or, in the case of us for the Heresy, Adeptus Custodes. I, of course, was among such people who said they'd be some quality conversion fodder for Custodes, if they're done right. Well, when I popped into my Local Game Store, I noticed that the latest copy of White Dwarf came with a free Stormcast Eternal model (one of the basic guys with a hammer and shield.) So what did I do when I saw it, I figured I'd put my money where my mouth is and buy a copy. Let it never be said that I am a man who will ask of other what he cannot do himself. 

 

So let's begin with the original inspiration for why I thought the Stormcast Eternal were a perfect fit. Here you go.

personally, I like it alot. 

Only comment I could think of is making the cape a bit bigger.

 

But ive thought that this AoS crap looks more like additional 40k bitz (or 30k bitz) than a real game system.

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

"The Fell Hand is a name that has been passed on through out the Legion. When one warrior bearing it died, the name is left to be earned by another. Thus it was passed from Floki to Volund to Erik to Geigor. And then the tradition died, because Posted Image Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 Posted Image millenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

Left arm is from a Warriors of Chaos kit, the Lord on Manticore if I'm right?

I'm not a fan of the entire bolter on the spear like that, but this does confirm some ideas I was having about Custodes conversions from these guys.

 

*edit* And speaking of these AoS dudes and spears, where's the models for THESE?

I really like your Custode Noctus. It's maybe bulkier than I imagine them but it doesn't look wrong either, and that's because of the model it's based on anyway. :)

Loving the Guardian spear. 

 

What did you use for a blade? I am looking to pick up the necessary extra bits in anticipation for the arrival of my AoS set on Saturday.
