Porting Skyrim models to Source?

Is there any easy way to accomplish this without having to be an experienced modeller? I'm trying to import a few models used in Skyrim to Source format.

Skyrim uses these file types for models;

.nif files for meshes
.dds files for textures (easily ported with VTFEdit, though I'm not sure how to apply them exactly)
.hkx files for animations

That's all I could find in my directory related to models. Any help? I found someone who translated a whole bunch of Argonian models and a dragon to Garry's Mod, so it has to be possible.

The best thing to do is see if there's some sort of .nif/.hkx importer for some 3D modeling program and then exporting them from there. That's what I did to get BioShock's models into Source. Failing that, you could always just try to get ahold of that guy who already figured it out and ask them.

Someone should write that up on the Source SDK wiki.
