Default Farsight army conversions

I'm doing a farsight army, and I wanted to model some close combat weapons onto some battlesuits, particularly O'Shovah's bodyguard, just to look cool. I'm rather adverse to using chain-anythings, but a cleaned up powerklaw would look amazing. Basically, what I'm asking is, if you were to model CCWs onto a crisis battlesuit, what would you do?

OK, lets see... It would only have to be just for style and for looks, so...

OOH! Wolverine claws coming out of their recessed fists! I'd probably use plastic fork tongs, just so they would all be slightly curved and uniform, without me having to get a headache trying to carve them to match.

I think a crisis suit wielding a katana would be awsome.... :rockon:

I was thinking I'd model something like the arm on this mech

but I doubt my sculpting skills are that good.

if you plan to got that way.. look into bits-buying Necron Flayed one arms, or just buy a few flayed ones models themselves- they have almost the exact hand you got there.

How about attaching kroot-rifle spikes to the arms? One on top and one on the bottom, or make forearm or elbow spikes out of them. They'd make good wolverine-claws or whatever.
