Need lots of the newer plastic vanilla or chaos marine backpacks for a conversion idea for my next army after Orks.

As many as I can glean from the club would be great before I bits order the remainder from somewhere online. I'm using 3 of them just to make 1 backpack for each single marine for my next Chaos army after the Orks.

Edit: at least 50 to begin with, but you can just trade me whatever amount

Gary, do you mean the backpacks from 'Zounds era marines? Or something more recent

Gary, I can probably do 50 Loyalist backpacks as I have almost that many Templars with theirs replaced with the old metal Emperor's Champion ones. Tell you what, let me make sure I still have them and I'll email you. There's a certain newly released bit I want and it may be cheaper for you to buy me the lesser number I need then for you to buy the higher amount of ones you do...

Gary, I didn't forget you. I'll get them to Lou sometimes this week to bring them in on Thursday...

Nidal, any backpack with those 2 ball-exhaust nozzles would be great. Thanks a lot Joe and Lou. Guys, let me know how I can return the favor.

I have 60 for you, Gary. What I could actually use are some wings. I need 10-11 pair of feathered wings that won't look too out of place on Kroot and 9 pair of bat-like wings that won't look out of place attached to a Marine backpack in place of the exhausts, a la the new Possessed but with some variation in position, etc. If none of that is doable currently paying it forward is fine...

Joe, I have 2 of the Possessed winged/backpacks that I can give/mail to you right now. As to feathered wings that are infantry size, I know GW has metal feather wings from the High Elf Eagles from the Warmaster range that are perfect in size (click here). I converted angel messengers with them and some Mordhiem Sisters and they are the exact scale and size. The only problem is that GW doesn't sell the wings as seperate bits. You'd have to buy the $12.00 blister but there are 3 eagles so you'd have 3 pairs of wings.

I'll certain owe you big in the future for all the backpacks! Awesome, thanks, Nidal, I'm still going to need more too, so however many you can trade me that would be great.
