so i've begun the planning of my army. However, after looking at armies in white dwarf, (and here!!!) i've been inspired to try and shake it up a little and make my army look unique. My armies homeworld is volcanic, so i thought i could represent this by using lava gorge bases.
But what i really want to do is convert them. Iwas thinking that because they're pious and all to make them look like that (Aquilas etc etc). As well, my grandad was in the Royal Household cavalry and i really liked the idea of using vostryons to represent my version of the 'donkey wallapers'. Thanks (My grandad was sent to cyprus, was the youngest ever sabretroop leader and was part of the ceremonial unit)
Vostroyons are cool, sadly as long as they are all metal they will be a little hard to convert. I saw someone on here the other day advertising some house cavalry conversion kits they'd made, though perhaps that harks back to a different era?
Are you going to get priests? You might also want to look at the Empire flagellents box for kit bash parts.

Might I suggest adding ash to the helmets and shoulder pads.
I find that to get a really good/simple snow effect just put styrofoam in a blender, of course this is white. However if you were to put polyethylene foam in a blender (or just have at it with a knife) it could work well as ash.
After all the bombs have fallen, after the 60 minute war, when nuclear winter blots the sky, there will be one cockroach left: Headbanging!

Hey emperor. For the household cavalry I would have thought that (using WD as a reference because you mention it) the guard army in that using parts from the fantasy warhammer kit might work better? Hell, if you can find some small enough some actual tassels glued to the heads might look awesome. A Vostroyan cavalry would look more like steam punk huns, to me at least. Just a suggestion of course.
