Last week I wrote a post about the the difference in converting Privateer Press models and other gaming miniatures. In the past, I have done extensive conversions in my Warhammer Fantasy and 40k armies. However, I have been really interested to find out that converting models for Warmahordes isn't necessarily look upon as good. This kind of boggles my mind.
It all stems from the fact that I want to create a Tier 4 eKreoss list. eKreoss can put out an insanely wicked beatdown when coupling his feat with a ton of Exemplar weaponmaster attacks. That said, to attain Tier 4, I need the Fire of Salvation heavy warjack. Unfortunately, Fire of Salvation costs like $52 retail. So, I have decided to convert up my own. Fire of Salvation is based on the Crusader chassis, so I think it should be fairly easy to convert. I even scored a classic Crusader for $12. In fact, I decided to go a step further and convert the Fire's weapon using the sword from Scourge of Heresy. The sword gives a more exemplar feel to the jack. Furthermore, if you look at Fire's card, there is nothing special about his weapon except it's ability to give the fire continuous effect. So, here is what I came up with.
So, there you have it. Does this look like a suitable Fire of Salvation? I plan on painting it as it looks in all of the official Privateer Press pics. Anyway, after seeing the model with the sword, would you allow it? Do you think it would it be contentious with a TO? It is obviously not a Crusader and also not Scourge of Heresy, so I thought it would pass well. Thoughts?
