How To Convert An Autogun

Hi all,

Today I'll be doing a quick 'How To' on how I produce the autoguns for my Servants of Slaughter list (more on that later). Its a relatively simple procedure that you should be able to reproduce in a few minutes, which is more important than you would think when you need to do 100 of them!

Chocolate Chip Desert Camo

Today I shall be providing a quick ‘how to’ on desert camouflage, specifically the ‘Chocolate Chip’ camouflage used by the United States Military during the Gulf War and in the early 1990s.

In this example I’ll be using one of my converted Guardsmen (without his arms or weapon) created by combining the Cadian and Catachan sprues but the general tips still apply

Ork Kommandos Sighted

Well it appears Forgeworld have been busy again, releasing a conversion kit for Ork Kommandos, that in my opinion look better than the current GW ones, but then again what Forge World products don't?

How To Convert A Squat Trike

Hi All,

Welcome to another installment of the Squat Revival here at Uplifting Primer, I'll be continuing with my squat conversion guides, this was supposed to be 'How to convert a Squat HWT but as the parts haven't arrived as of yet, I'm posting the article I was planning for the next update.

Now back in the days of Rogue Trader squats were famous for their Guild Heavy Weapon Trike Teams and their skid turns that enabled them to move, spin the bike round, fire the heavy weapon (with no penalty) and then continue to move. Sadly no one will let me use this rule yet, but I live in hope :)

I have, however a large number of bike wheels and the front mudguards for the wheels due to a number of conversions I recently did for jetbikes. This, it seems, was all the reason I needed to start assembling Squat trikes...

How To Convert A Squat

Hi all,

I've always been interested in the Rogue Trader edition of 40k (especially the fluff) and lament the loss of the Squats. For those of you who don't know, they were small, angry and bearded, (so pretty much the Scots in space) and had the technical knowledge that made the Imperium of Man look like a bunch of idiots who can't operate a remote for the TV yet alone an iPhone. Sadly GW have got rid of the Squats, retconning the fluff to state they were devoured by the Tyranids (like a deep-fried Mars bar), but they still have a strong, underground, following (sorry couldn't resist!) on the interwebs.

So for my first article I decided I would do a conversion piece (god knows I'm not a painter) on how to convert a Squat from (predominantly) GW bits...
