Dark Angels Masters of the Chapter Conversions

I bought the Masters of the Chapter box set and converted them to make them fit in with my chapter , modeling robes and hooded heads and swords.


Here they are in primer after the conversion work.


First I will show the GW figures painted as smurfs (Ultramarines) and then my conversions.

First is the Master of the Fleet .


and my Dark Angel Master of the Fleet.


Next is the Master of the Watch ,


and mine.


Next the Master of the Recruits



mine,



and the Master of the Armory



and mine


these are not quite done yet but well on the way.

  1. I realy like theese models
    They have been converted excelently, did u sculpt hoods onto the heads or drill out the heads and replace them with dar angels ones?
    I like the paint Job looks realy professional, I lik the energy effect on the swords I may give that a go! :D

    Please visit my site, It still needs a lot of work and at the moment I havnt had much time to update it but theres still sum stuff on there!

  2. Thanks for the comments, nice to here from someone.
    I took a look at the site and like that you are going to be doing some scratch building.
    I will be posting some how to stuff soon that may interest you , keep up the good work and take lots of pictures of the process.
    The models came with loose bald heads , the hooded heads and the swords are all plastic from the new Dark Angel Ravenwing plastic sprues , I added some robe parts made from green stuff.
    The power effect on thee sword is light blue squiggle lines with a blue wash and then light blue squiggle lines over again, with a few random dots. ( I am still working on it )

  3. That is some very nice conversion work. ALthough you can see where they are from, you do need to look twice, and that in itself is the best rating of a conversion. To not know it is a conversion on the first look.

    I had thought of doing something similar for my own chapter, so now I have no excuse seeing how good they can turn out with a bit of work.

    Very impressive, and very inspiriing.

  4. Bucho ,

    Thank you for the kind words , the Masters of the chapter went together quite easy with all the nice plastic parts on the ravenwing sprue, and just a bit of greenstuff, you should give it a go, and send us some pics ,

  6. G'day,
    Awesome, like the hoods & robes. For the Master of the Armory, did you have to dremel out the helmet in the fist, or is it seperate to the powerfist?
    Cheers,

  7. Actually it is a different power fist in plastic that I found in my bits box and I added the crux.
