I converted 1 box (Contains 2 models) of the WHF Undead Norghast minis into Talos.

They are not 100% im still converting to fix the guns into HWB's and fill in the holes.

I could have really easily made "tail guns" with the extra Tentacle/spines that come with the Talos/Cronos box, I liked the Hand/arm guns better, b.c I like the idea each one was surgically altered differently.

Talos/Cronos Conversions DSCI0800_zps9d11d852
Talos/Cronos Conversions DSCI0799_zpscd192c7f

Step by Step


  1. Made he Bodies like normal
  2. Shaved down the Arm sockets to fit the DE Talos arms
  3. Shaved the Head down to fit the DE Talos head/mask over the Norghast head.
  4. Glue the DE hands to the DE Arms
  5. Made the bases/Drill a hole to fit base stick
  6. Glued on the Arms and Head
  7. Glued on the small arm bits to Norghasts legs spots
  8. Glued on some Back bits
  9. Cut a Spine/Tentacle from the Cronos to fit on the Back of the Norghast
  10. Glued said Tentacles to the back

Nice work.
I'm surprised that the Morghast models came out so well. I didn't realize how similar the torso size between them and the talos are.
And the fact you can make two Taloi from the kit(plus spare parts) is awesome.

Was there much in the Morghast kit that you'll be able to use elsewhere?

The Wings are amazing and are wonderful for Demon Princes or tyranids, and there are 4 sets of duel swords that could be used as well.

Totally agree-I clicked on the thread thinking, "Oh man, this could be iffy." Pleasantly surprised Twisted Evil Pretty awesome idea and a great way to add variety to your army!

This is terribly smart. Well done!
Nagash also offers a wealth of spinal columns that can be pressed into service or the coven.

This is a great idea, amishprn86, and very nicely executed. They look terrific, and it is always nice to see variations on a theme rather than a squad of identical models. I hadn't looked at these models yet, but you are right, their weapons also have nice potential for us.

Do you have more conversions planned?
