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

  4. Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believe in spell casting, until when i was was tempted to try it. i and my wife have been having a lot of problem living together, she will always not make me happy because she have fallen in love with another man outside our relationship, i tried my best to make sure that my wife leave this woman but the more i talk to her the more she makes me fell sad, so my marriage is now leading to divorce because she no longer gives me attention. so with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster to see if things can work out between me and my wife again. this spell caster who was a man told me that my wife is really under a great spell that she have been charm by some magic, so he told me that he was going to make all things normal back. he did the spell on my wife and after 5 days my wife changed completely she even apologize with the way she treated me that she was not her self, i really thank this man his name is Dr ose he have bring back my wife back to me i want you all to contact him who are having any problem related to marriage issue and relationship problem he will solve it for you. his email is  he is a man and his  great. wish you good time.
