Some great conversions, there.  Hard to pick out my favourites, to be honest.  But I'm looking forward to seeing these painted!

green with envy... or is that just the font on this forum? :P

Seriously impressive GS skills mate. Saw these at the meet at Easter and was bowled over then. particularly nice is the use of Drazhar's blades, they work REALLY well at this scale IMO.

Fantastic skill here.

In many ways, I'm enjoying the rebuilding of the Conclave, because it gives me the chance to see all these things again, some of which I'd forgotten about.

If asked to pick my favourite, it's got to be the Farseer, a great conversion of the Avatar that I keep meaning to do my own version of. But I do like the "Splinter Cell -ishness" (not sure if that's what you were going for though) of your Eversor conversion - surprisingly simple, and it changes the model vastly.
S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

Models models everywhere, and not a drop of paint...

Great converting and sculpting skills though. Looking forward to seeing them painted.

Ooooh.  Too much good stuff.

Farseer, Magos, and the Commisar are excellent.

And that last priest has a fantastic pose.

There's something about the pose of the Ecclesiarch Preacher that just grabs my attention.  He's very dynamic.  A fairly simple conversion but it wrks very well.

Sweet Imperator! Is he really in Mk VII Imperator Armour? Is that really a Farseer?

That Magos head swap is such a simple and excellent idea.
I'm dead impressed, it changes the tone of model nicely, makes it look a little more sinister in that skeletal creepy way that Ringwraiths and such look nasty.

IIRC, the servo arms from the magos are from the newer space marine tecpriest and the tech priest has a servo arm from the old version of the techspace marine, i'm going to have a stab at 2nd generation?
 i may have an old codex kicking around with it in (Actualy i think that books in storage... damm.)

The Magos' right (model right) servo arm and backpack are from the new Techmarine, and the left arm is from the Iron Warriors Warsmith model (although it is really difficult to tell.)

Any progress on photos of the models in their painted states?
