Default deffkopta buzzsaw

I am going to get some more deffkoptas to add on to the 3 I already have and would like 1 to have a buzzsaw but I was wondering how to go about modelling one on a BR kopta

1 idea is to have it as a sort of power klaw by changing one of the arms but I would like to hear other suggestions or see pictures

Since I cut off the Buzz-Choppa off the AoBR Orks for my Blood Bowl Team and I got some AoBR Deffkoptaz and I need them with Buzzsaws.....well, here's the result of it:



I used the IG Mortar Base as a base for the Buzzsaw and using GS to stick them together.

I guess i thought that the buzzsaw was their rotor's, just the ork was krazy enough to tilt his kopta in a way to use it against someone.

Here are the three that I made.

The buzzsaw is kind of hard to see on the first one, but it is in the nose of the kopta. It is made from plasticard and then has plasticard teeth on it. The claw that brings victims into the buzzsaw is just from a tyranid warrior and the attached arm is made from spure.



The one is entirely made from plasticard and sprue. The buzzsaw above is basically made the same way, but a little smaller.



The last one is a few chainswords/chainchoppas cut up and glued together to give the appearance of some kind of meat grinder machine. The claws are again from tyranid warriors.



Hope that gives you some ideas. I was going to try and do one that was a giant pair of scissors but I couldn't figure out the best way to do it.

How did you cut out the card to make the bolts? I'm going to copy your idea for the second one for my koptas.

Amusingly, this is also my first (and current) thoughts on this matter.
But can easily adapt to what Zenai did.

To make rivets I bought a 1/16" hole punch from a craft store.
