Well i was pondering what to do for my Epic forces and decided i don't like using models to fill in if i haven't got the models to use so it got me thinking (yup ouch!) Guhdra did some ace conversions of the old Plastic Battle wagons into Flakk trukks so how hard could converting other units be?
Well here's my attempt at it and i think they came out pretty well!
C&C welcome ;)

A little trimming and we are ready to start.

a small piece of P-card (a nice thin bit)

and add a view-port and teef ;)

Now some bits for feet, i used the lower spike with a little trimming of the underside so it would stand flat.

Legs n feet!

really nice work man! I am not sure that a SAG for a kan is a good trade, though. The result does work nice! but maybe you should use something different for the "base". After all, SAGs can be used for many other units.

well, for instance, I used them for my speed freak units. My speedtas have a SAG. I converted a couple of bikes and added the SAG. I sometimes show mekkboy wagons with them with a really easy conversion or simply glueing a mekk to the hull. What I mean is that you can use a SAG for ANYTHING that requires a big gun. And there are 100s of square-shaped gubinz that you could use for a kan's body.

Right Now i understand where yer coming from :thumbs My force isn't SF's but i have quite a fey old mek-boy speedstaz with SLD and BC's which i use for those upgrades ;) so i must admit it didn't occur to me. i used the SAG's as i couldn't think of anything to use em for at the time and they have the 'epic' scale detail on em so its less to do ya know ;) Cheers for that though i might re think doing 9 of em now ;)

SAGs into Kans is a worthwhile trade. Seeing as how SAGs don't really come into EA unless you are using them in a Big Gun battery or to represent an Oddboy upgrade. I love the idea you put forth here Zog and now you got me thinking my horde of SAGs might just make a fine batch of converted Deff Koptaz. :thumbs
