[ERROR] No.17814267 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Has anybody else lost pieces of a miniature, important pieces aswell?
I was just about to assemble my cryptek, when I dropped its head!
Anyone know of anyway I could get a replacement, or a suitable different part?

>> No.17814286

Most people at my shop are using the Lychguard box to make their crypteks and lords. Other then the huge chin on a normal cryptek you should be able to use any normal necron head.

>> No.17814288

Deathmark heads would work, though they lack the crest and beard, which may or may not be a good thing.

i lost a left arm off one of my old metal immortal models. i ended up using an old bionic arm to substitute. still looks off but it serves its purpose.

My lgs owner asks us players on ideas how to make conversions like that. Hell when another player is looking to cut down the price of expanding his army the shop owner sends him to me for tips of other models/conversions to use.

>>17814293
I've got a buddy that lost a arm of his old metal lord, so we carved it a new one out of sprue and gave it a res orb using a airsoft pellet.

If you don't want to do that and have the package for the cryptek still just call up gw saying a part in it was damaged or has severe bubbles and they'll ship ya a new one.

The staff at my GW ask and encourage people to get creative and convert with various kits, lychguard to make crypteks? scratch building a knight paladin? right this way sir! come have a rummage in our bits draw for some deathstalker heads/vehicle bits that could help.

Rather good group at that store.

that would give me the shits so badly, I eventually started to cut small bits of plastic card to shape and replace the missing links. It looks alright once it's been painted.

my suggestion, just make it look like the arm was ripped out of socket.

I was going to use a Dark Eldar arm, but I can't find any suitable ones. Might go with a Catachan arm, if their command squad has similar stuff to the Cadian one.

derpy Termagants?

>> No.17814968

>>17814941
Would you be able to kitbash them with some other parts to make counts-as units for other Daemons? Even just generic Lesser Daemons for Chaos Marines? Perhaps heating and bending the tails into position so it looks like they're slithering along the ground.

>> No.17814969

>>17814941
Make them termaguants but make them as if they are burrowing out of the ground. They would be great as a unit which pops up after a trygon makes a tunnel.

I had actually thought about buying some hormagaunt talons to make them look like a different type of nid, but I'm not interested in playing nids anymore.

>>17814968
eh...maybe But I can't think of much to do with them their tails are about the only really neat thing about them, and I don't really want to buy any more deamonettes to make hybrids.

now if I had some bloodletters I would use them in conjuntion with the gargoyles and run them as a different type of fiend.

>> No.17815057

>>17814941
The arms can be substituted for Chaos Marine arms in places to appear like chitinous mutation, similar story for the tails. The heads can be used as trophies, or the jaws can be carefully trimmed out and GS'd onto bolter barrels or used to decorate armour.

>> No.17815124

I love that conversion!

>> No.17815128

>>17815057
If I didn't already have my CSM army built, I would probably do somthing akin to this.

I suppose I could use their tails on something bigger, make them tentacle like appendages....maybe make some slaaneshi style terrain out of them.

(tentacle pit ahoy)

>> No.17815141

>>17815124
I do too, but I'm never inspired enough to undertake it. also I can never seem to find any bloodletters when they are on sale on ebay.

well got to go to work folks, check ya later.
