Stormtroopers conversion 4: firs two testing models ready

Here you are the first two Imperial Guard Stormtroopers conversions! Two brave testing models...

1: Stormtrooper ready to fire:
The best pose in my opinion and his face helps. He's ready to fire, with eyes wide open. If GW plans to make new Imperial Guard Stormtroopers must ispire itself by my conversion!

2: Stormtrooper with plasma gun. 
Left hand on plasma gun and not under it. Like to say: "Dear plasma gun..."
You can see that plasma gun is longer at the end, I've modified it. Before its lenght wasn't enough. 

Disposition of coloured grenades on the backpack
What are that cylinders on the stormtrooper backpack? Grenades, paratroopers stuff? I dont' know, but now they have a sense. Note the colour's disposition:
- blue red blue for trooper
- blue blue red for special weapon
(- red blue blue for Sergeant)

Stormtroopers conversion 3: hotshot lasguns and brainstorming about the Sergeant

Making Hotshot lasguns and plasma guns ready:
 End of green stuff work (I hope...)

Brainstorming about Stormtrooper Sergeant:

What's the best pose for the Stormtrooper Sergeant? With photoshop I see that the sword isn't a bad idea. But the close fist to say Halt! remains better for me.

I have Colonel Schaeffer miniature too. If I use him to safe Sergeant with Eviscerator?
Left: trying to draw the conversion. It's quite good but the original armour is not the same of Stormtroopers...

Original Stormtrooper Sergeant model (conversion) must have a scabbard for his sword. Right arm will be replaced...

And if...
If I keep all the Stormtroopers with swords? I can improve some miniatures like this model on the right...

But it's late to think such things...

Stormtroopers are ready for serious conversion. Let's start now...
