Yeah, Truescale baby!

Hi guys - GR here.

An insanely talented gentleman by the name Jeff Vader of Officio Convertorum mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that he thought it would be cool if I truescaled my marines, since I have so few. I love truescaled marines, but I was a little reluctant, since I have built a couple of power armoured true scale guys before, but never tackled a terminator. However, last night, while trying to fall asleep, it came to me how I should do it - Obliterator legs! I've used them before on Pandemion, my Nurgle lord, but this was a whole new challenge.

Anyway, I set to work, and while there is still a lot to be done, I really like where these guys are going (lots of sculpting a detailing to go):

I had to completely redo the halberd, since the normal version looked ridicoulous on this scale. It obviously still needs some cleanup and detailing. The torso is made from a chaos terminator back, combined with the GK termi front, and sculpted to fill out the gaps. The thighs and groin are from the GK termies as well, with some bulking up with putty done. The shoulderpads are from Micro Art Studios, if I'm not mistaken (I bought them 3 years ago, been lying around my bitz box for a looong time.)

The "regular" Grey Knights:

Very simple conversions - basically a terminator, with the back vents cut away, a backpack added and heightened by sculpting a mid section.

And a pic for scale - they are pretty impressive in size, and actually look like the 8 foot tall, 600 pound genemodified killing machines they are - even compared to my acolyte, who is pretty buff:

Check back soon for more, and please leave a comment if you've got any great ideas or critique. :)


  1. Good on Jeff for planting this seed, its born amazing fruit! They look very imposing indeed, and suit the art of Space marines much better than the stock plastics.

  2. That is awesome. I love the shoulder pads; they're a great touch - very reminiscent of Tyrus! Sweet work, bud!

  3. Great conversion again! Makes the marines much more "commanding" than the stock GW stuff. And the shoulder pads really are a nice touch. Really bulks him up a lot
