I was wondering if anyone could help me with conversion ideas for my chosen Kabal by firstly helping me decided the scale of conversion and secondly by recommending bits to use for the conversions.

"Their Archon S'aronai Ariensis, once botched a coup that cost him his place in the Dark City and most of his left hand. He defiantly refuses to regenerate his wound, and his warriors are often mutilated in the same manner, their right hands reduced to talons or replaced by augmetic claws" DE Codex pg 63 (Is this a typo? Surely GW meant their left hand as that's the hand their Archon lost?)

I don't know how to interpret this regarding my models, as it would make holding their weapons difficult.

My first thought is to just convert the Trueborn units, as from a modeling perspective it would mean less conversions. Additionally they are superior troops so presumably would be able to aim better whilst holding their weapons with one hand, and would more than likely be older and more "loyal" (If you can call them that) to their Archon. Either way I think if that this would look really good if implemented well. (Army wide or just Trueborn)

Thanks in advance.

From what I've read this means they can have some sort of "Terminator (from movies) hand", right?. I don't know, maybe instead of CCW cut their fingers, add 5 small metal claws from plasticard and add some putty? Or use Necron Warriors bits (I guess You can buy them pretty cheap AND have thier guns which can act as... I don't know, "grimdard" street lights?).


or do this guy

Thanks for your tips Local_Ork. I guess they could look like terminator hands, and I had thought of using a Necron hand for my Archon in another thread. so it's good to hear you recommend Necron bits as it reassures my line of thought, abliet i hadn't thought of using their gauss rifles as well.

I suppose if you were really lazy you could simply paint one hand a different colour and state that the hand is gloved, but I'm not that lazy! I keep thinking of power-fists, but they are too big...

Lol! With regards to the picture, he could quite possibly be a Haemonculi creation!

Augmented claws, eh? Like something looking like these?

Well, the easy solution would be to just paint their left hands silver or whatever colour you use for your metals. The more elaborate version would be to replace the left hands with hooks, blades and claws. If you don't use the shardnet from the wych kit you might use the hooks found on the end of that to give your warriors nice pirate-style hooks.

It certainly seems that Necrons are the way to go! I could use them for Trueborn if there holding a one-handed weapon... They remind me of the old Archons claw.

Lol! I can just imagine the image of them running about like that. Quite fitting as well due to their piratical nature.

Thanks for the tip's guys.

Instead of paying for the GW claws, I'd imagine using slivers of plastic card to make your own would be very, very easy. Follow these guidelines. This pics are from Warseer and are on how to make your own warfan for Lady Malys. Same principle, different practice.

Thanks for providing that tutorial Xelkireth, I will certainly be looking into that and experimenting myself. I brought some "Green Stuff" yesterday and will be trying a few things out with that, so hopefully I can come up with something.

What does everyone think of using Genestealer arms > Genestealer Right Claw A & Genestealer Right Claw B

I don't know if they are too organic/mutant...

IMHO bad move, unless You would like to sculpt armour over them... but what's the point then?

Hooks... are interesting.

Actually new DE knifes and "stabby bits" would work nice as fingers.

I think the tyranid arms look to buggish.
