Default Converting Chaos Lords

I have a Chaos lord model (unassembled) that I want to give lightning claws, I'm thinking of just using green stuff to make a fake lightning claw out of the power fist he comes with for the right hand but for the left one it looks like I'll have to do alot of sawing and stuff with an arm from a terminator or something... anyone have any suggestions?

+++Well, you could try the arms from Space Marine termies, I believe you can get both right and left lightening claws for the SMurfs. All you'll have to do is replace the iconography with Chaos iconography+++

oh, I didnt know there was a conversion section... *feels stupid*

I could but I'm not sure how well the left one will fit, the stump for the arm is in a weird place. Can I post pictures on here to show the model?

sure, the gallery is in beta or you could host it yourself, I've always been partial to Flayed ones claws for lightning claws, seems more like claws to me than the huge powerfist with knives coming out

Actually, I always thought using Scything Talons (the claw part, at least) worked pretty well on heavily mutated models. Also, on a related note, does anybody have any idea wtf that gun the Chaos Lord model is holding is supposed to be? Looks like it might be a melta, but it's so mutated it could be just about anything.

Default Lightning Claws

Well, a chaos raptor claw might look really good.* If you just want to do a simpler conversion to the powerfist, just add slivers of plasticard (you can use old membership/credit cards even) or combat knives on the back of the powerfist.

Below is an example of one I was making for a champion model:


..and here is an example that uses the spikey bitz from the plastic dark eldar helmets:

I myself like the 'cron flayed one hands for lightning claws, gives the whole "I can slice you" feel IMO.

I used two powerfists to create the lightening claws. By painting I made the finers look like claws and more pointed. It doesnt look too bad . . .
