IG Codex … Argghhh … <looks at large pile of cadian boxes> … <considers doing some IG> … <Ponders which force> …

Cadians ? … done to death, who wants to be the same as everyone else …

Vostroyans ? … Character … Cossacks … Hmm possible … but too archaic for me .. and METAL … metal is the bane of conversions.

Catachan ? … oh please … Rambo … big arms … BIG ARMS … nah …

Death Korps ? … got a good few packs of them, with snapped off gun barrels, resin weak and snaps … expensive … like the look though.

Uhhh oh … just ruled out all the plastics … hmm not good

Praetorians … Character … Metal … hmm no longer sold on the GW site .. ebay .. possible rarity appeals

Mordians … Praetorians with caps … prefer Praetorians

Valhallans … Russians, Look ok … great coats … hmm maybe

Tallarn … Arabic never moved me …

Steel Legion … hmmm WWII German Paratroopers … that might work, Metal … Hmm based on Armageddon, would work well with my Salamanders … Nice artwork too, stylish, and the cool laying down and firing Heavy weapons … Ok this is working for me. But I want plastics … and compatability with the Cadian sprues … oh damn … time to do some work.

So began an Easter weekend of fun converting, with the intention of making a Cadian soldier into a Steel Legion soldier …

I have got about 85% of the way there so far, just gloves, boots and lightning emblem on shoulder left to green stuff.

Take a look, tell me what you think, anything wrong ?
