My Telion


Here is a quick and dirty Telion conversion. I do not plan to use him much but I wanted to have the option to drop him into a list without dropping the cash for the metal model. Four dollars seems better than fifteen for a model just for an occasional game. I like the eye of vengeance rule and think he might be a good addition for games against Eldar to try to pick out upgrade charcters in aspect warrior squads. If Nobs did not have those pesky 2 wounds he would be good for Orks also.

I mainly just cut up a spare sniper rifle from the scout sniper kit to get the silencer for the barrel and the more detailed scope. I put the cloak bundle on the back to represent the stealth skill and the rocket is there to represent the voice of experience rule. His specially balanced rocket helps the youngins find their target. I want to use a normal space marine head from the commander box but I could just not get it cut down correctly to look right so I just used one from the scout biker box.

  1. Have you thought about using the serg head with respirator either from Landspeeder or Tactical sprue. Check out mine at weemen.blogspot, under Relictor Scouts.

  2. Problem is that the scope gets up near the face so that the head really cannot be much bigger. I also wanted to use a head with some eye piece or bionic eye. The head I was trying to use was from the commander kit. Maybe those heads are just a little bigger than the normal marine heads.

  3. I spent big bucks on the horribly out of scale Telion, I wish I had seen this post first. Nice looking conversion you've got here...

  4. Telion does seem a little bigger than the other scouts but he has just had the geneseed acting on him for longer right.
