I recently came accross this, and thought I'd share it. The "blaster" on the left in the pic is actually made from a shredder and a blast pistol.
This simple, yet great, idea was posted on heresy-online by Strange Dude. Follow the link here to go to the forum thread, which includes pictures of the exact pieces to use and where to make the cuts; basically cut the nozzle of the shredder and replace it with the blast pistol nozzle, and then remove the shredder ammo canister.
I'm going to use this method to make 2 extra trueborn from a box of warriors I bought to convert into scourges (with blood angel wings).
Painting, building and converting models has kind of grind to a halt after the rush to get my Dark Eldar army ready for the two tournaments over the last two weekends. It's always good to take a short break after tournaments to reflect and recover. However I do have a few projects I want to get started:
- Making Scourges from Warriors and Blood Angel Wings
- Making a 6th Reaver jetbike
- Finish getting my Space Wolves in a state I can use it in games against my mates
My next tournament has been booked as Compliance II at Triple Helix Wargames, so lots of playtesting to do until then, plus hopefully finishing my scourges and/or jetbike to give me more options.
