Converting combi-plasmas for terminators is a bitch. So in between slicing weapons into teeny-tiny pieces and realigning them, I’ve been working on the new raptors. In game they will be armed with meltaguns, but I eventually decided to give them a couple of melta-pistols I have from a friend that were destined to become combi-meltas for some of my Iron Warriors infantry. I also couldn’t resist and armed the champion with a pair of claws. Maybe in some games I’ll actually give him the equipment in the roster too, as well as making them veterans. May prove fun, if I can spare the points. Well, last night I just finished the 5th of them. They’re built mostly stock, some spiky bits trimmed, one has his chainsword replaced, two more got death company hands together with their pistols.
Update: Thanks to a friend, the squad now has a name, too – Squad Moloch.
Soon(tm) – right after I get my hands on two more plasma pistols, I will be adding a couple of posts with all my terminators. Gotta say, I’m really proud of how these guys are turning up 😀
Now, iif only I could decide what spiky warband to make… Alpha Legion is a prime contender, they’ve been close to my heart since I started the hobby. The Scourged are pretty awesome too. And there’s always the option of making my own twisted version… We shall see.
