Hey guys, enjoy some Imperial Guard Greatcoat / Traitor Guard conversions. These guys are easy to convert and will really make your foot troops stand out. You can really have some fun with these conversions because a lot of the parts are 100% interchangeable, and even if you don’t use certain parts on your stock troopers, the extra trimmings can make command sections and sergeants really stand out.
This guy was made using, of all things, Vampire Counts bits. The legs and shoulder pads are from the Grave Guard kit. The arms are standard Cadian bits, and the rucksack is a Catachan bit. The head is from the Pig Iron range called Kolony Militia. Pig Iron also produces some other great Imperial Guard ish stuff, prefect for renegades and loyalist commanders.
The whole conversion was pretty simple. Just snip off the Cadian shoulder plates and lay the Grave Guard ones on flat. The torso will need a little support as the Grave Guard torso is placed slouched onto the legs. You can fix all this with the addition of ammo packs or other gubbins across the front waist of the model.
The most important thing to remember with a project like this is to start with an idea, but be flexible enough to switch it up a bit overall. Be open if something else comes along and looks good as well.
