Default Should I convert????

i ordered a commander o shovah from the games workshop main base i have been making him and it turns out that the armw with the dawn blade does not fit the arm socket i was thinking of canverting the arm by cutting the elbow off and replacing it with a spare arm and glus the elbow on to the other elbow or should i let the staff at my local GW make it???

Why not just file down/scrape the plastic ball joint where the arm attaches, it would be much easier then trying to mess with the pewter arm.

Without the shoulder joint, it can be a little tricky to rebuild the upper arm. If you want to do it yourself, I would use a pin vise and a length of brass rod to connect the upper arm to the torso. Then bulk the rod up with green stuff into a sphere approximating the original ball joint. But if the staff are willing to help you out, you might as well go for it. This is going to be a structural rather than a cosmetic conversion.
