I'd be interested to see peolpe's conversions, but I find myself unable to leave the old world behind and commit to the new setting, so I'm gonna keep converting and painting as if it was still 8th edition...
I had a similar feeling but tbh the new setting has grown on me (don't hate me please)
I think your conversions are really great. They are subtle enough to not be too loud but the point is made and it looks good.
I hadn't given much thought to converting dwarfs to a realm theme. I imagine the realm of life would just be really earthy colors with a neat base. Realm of fire, you could do some neat molten effects on armour and such. I dunno. Tell me if you come up with anything.
Awh thanks man! The latest update has one model that may be a bit over the top. I'm not that good but I'm obsessed with conversions. Yeah I had a similar feeling, I've only really thought of fire and was thinking of doing some fire spitting irondrakes (ironsalamanders maybe?). Come to think of it life dwarves could have some jadey Armour with antlers on their helms and maybe some more rugged weapons? If I was wealthier I'd try all of these but unfortunately I'm poor . I might do a concept life dwarf maybe, I think I can pull that off with the parts at my disposal now.

Maybe a bit like what Reka is doing with his dwarfs? Greens, browns, furs... I'm just not sure if a Norse vibe would match the Realm of Life Duardin in the fluff (somebody who has bought the books would know better than I do).
Reka is much much much better at converting and painting than me, I saw that thread recently and I think it could fit life and the beast one (I forgot the name too don't worry) but I had pictured the life dwarves to be a bit more... swift looking? I dare not say woodelfy, but less beef cakey at least as far as dwarves are concerned. I really need to get my hands on some of those AOW models, nameingly the slayers.
