Default Fleshborers for Warriors

I've so far only got fleshborers from the gaunt sprue, is there a fleshborer that is warrior size? Anyone done any conversions using a fleshborer for warriors? Hints and tips required!

The fleshborers seem to be the awkward teen in the spinefist-->devourer-->deathspitter progression. I only realized (relatively) recently that warriors could even take this weapon and so never even planned on trying this conversion out. I don't think it would look all too weird to try to just glue on some borers sized gaunt, hmm perhaps 'underslung' style on the 'main' biomorph for the warrior.

For the record, fleshborer isn't a good warrior weapon, due to it's range. unless you are planning on building winged warriors? And even then, you'd probably be much better off with TL devourers instead.

I'm actually doing the fleshborers more for other reasons.... I can see they aren't that crash hot, but the suit what I'm going to use them for...

Unless you do some conversion, you'll be stuck with the gaunt sprue Fleshborers. What i would do though, is add some kind of shoulder chitin/ carapace looking armour, to fill the gap. What i found that looks cool, is the samurai style shoulders. Similar to how the carapace on top of a monstrous scything talon looks.
