PostSubject: Kabalite warriors on venoms...   Mon May 29 2017, 01:14

Im working on an army where i would like kabalite warriors on venoms. What would be the best way to make this happen? Will raider warrior models fit the venom or will i have to use parts from the provided wyches, like the arms and legs, with a kabalite head and body? Are there any other alternatives? Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks, Ryan

You would have to do some modifications to the legs unfortunately to make the kabalite knees work for the wing poses. The Wych legs are at a slight angle to enable a smooth fit along the wing. Worth giving a try if you have spare though.

The pilot - a head swap should be sufficient since most of the model is hidden or can be written off as different armour due to his role. A torso swap is possible (I did it) but it requires cutting and filing to make it fit

The Gunner - the raider gunner should work fine

The hangers on - the warrior with the hook and 2 feet on the hull might work as is - cant be sure, but the one with a hand on the rail will almost certainly not work. I would suggest going the harlequin route in terms of posing and use the warrior legs straddling the rails - it might work ok

a cool idea for a gunner would be to model a kabalite with splinter cannon on the back. passengers could just be standing on the platform.

Thanks a ton! You've all given me good ideas, i dont know which to use. Ill have to look on ebay for some raider crew bits. I ordered a bunch of the regular wych ones, so i have those kicking around. Ill let you guys know how it goes and post some pics of it!

I just used the wych legs, and kabalite torsos and arms

I then painted the legs consistent with the armour (so don't paint the patches of exposed skin as skin colour, paint them the same as the armour)

On the table top you'd never know the difference.

In the "Raiders of Commorragh" Painting guide It has wracks in all of the gunner and driver spots and it looks wicked cool. After reading this thread I wonder what you would need to do to them to make that work.
