I just realised this, but its weird how well 28mm grenades scale with 54mm minis. I guess it's because the 28mm hands are heroic scale and thus larger in proportion?

It's actually true of lots of GW's 28mm weapons on non-heroic 54mm scale models. My 54mm sculpts use more delicate and realistic proportions than GW's own range (with many of my models based on the more realistic style used in GW's art) and many of them use 28mm weapons - albeit sometimes modified with slightly larger grips or stocks, or perhaps spliced together from two weapons.

I have sometimes scratch built weapons such as when I did the Mordant "Acid Dog" (whose Triplex lasgun is fairly large in the art), but I do find myself doing that less than just heading to my bits box.

Polar guardsman by tehnolog, was going to convert these a bit but tbh they are pretty much perfect as is although might press mold some Aquila's etc for them at some point:

The new genestealer patriarch with a bit of reposing and removal of spines / spikes makes a good 54mm genestealer:

Trooper with fancy pistol, headswap and a daemons blade (metal archon sword) makes a nice radical inquisitor:

Some very cool stuff mate. The Technolog models are quite nice. I had originally ignored them because of the quality but the Pirate is actually quite nice. Where is the pistol from on the Inquisitor.

The buzz saw off the Arco-flag. Where is that from?

Thanks very much the tehnolog stuff is pretty good for soft plastic and can't find 54mm stuff any cheaper really

The pistol is a cut down plastic space marine scout sniper rifle.
