    Bronze Scorpian

    So yeah apparently its going to be a ForgeWorld release. SUCH BULL! I am just converting a a damn Defiler, 2 legs are fine as far as I am concern. I'll throw on a absurd amount of spiky bits while I am at it to, get back to the traditional Chaos theme. Anyone else planning to make one soon? If so, any ideas as to what you'll do?

    1st. it's BRASS scorpion.

    2nd. how is it bull that FW are producing one.

    Look around on the web, already a lot of people have converted theirs form multiple defiler kits and a whole hots of other goodies that I haven't decoded yet.
    Plasticard is also a good extra if you want to bulk it out as sofar most version I have seen are barely larger than a normal defiler and a bit to thin IMO.
    Also take your time when building it.

    Because in the US, Forgeworld products are extremely expensive. About 2-3x more than you would pay. Due to the weak USD, the very strong GBP, and FW's maddeningly expensive shipping and handling fees.

    For example, say I wanted a Chaos Dreadnaught. £22 for the body and £6 each for the arms, totaling £34. Then add 15% for shipping (£5.10) for a grand total of £39.10 . The exchange is currently $2.08 to the £, making the Dreadnaught $80.08! That is double the price for a normal dread.

    Well, that's because it's Forgeworld. I'm not saying their stuff is cheap, but I think that they deliver good quality sculpting.

    Ontopic; I plan on building one myself. I do have a Defiler kit lying around. I just need to order a couple of armor plates from BWbits or so and perhaps an extra arm. If I got that stuff I'm pretty much set. If I take a look at the Scorpion in the Apocalypse rulebook it's a quite easy conversion if you ask me. I do like the one in the 40k rulebook more (somewhere in the back where there's a lot of other conversion too.) probably due to the Raider side panels. But it takes me some time to figure it out so I might fare with the Apoc. one.

    He hit on the head when he said FW is in UK... Funny, seeing how FW would make more money if they opened their operations where their products would be in higher demand *US*. But yeah, I am only going to use ONE kit, because I am already buying a Line Breaker kit as it is. Add enough spikey bits, it'll be good enough.

    More cowbell?
    MORE SPIKEY!

    My first rule with Chaos models, is that they can look like pretty much anything you want. Does it fit with your fluff? If it does, that's fine. Does it fit with GWs profile? Again, as long as your models is pretty close in size, and portrays what its supposed to be, who cares.

    If you want to take part in GW run tourney and competitions, your model needs to be mainly made of their parts. I was told about 70% needs to be GW bits. But if, like me, your not bothered about using some of my converted models in GW tourneys, you can use what you like.

    I intend to make a Brass Scorpion/Defiler. I will use it as either, depending on the game. It will be made of numerous different bits, but I'm not buying a Defiler kit, as I don't like it much.

    I keep my eyes open for models in toy shops, and will scratch build bits, and use pretty much anything to build models. I hate GW Dreadnoughts, especially for Chaos. So both of my Chaos Dreads started life as Lego Bionicle kits.

    Anyway.....good luck with the Scorpions chaps.

    The Brass Scorpion deserves to be made of metal. The two-defiler conversion is both great-looking, and suitably heavy. Just have to find a way to fit a model railroad smoke machine into it...

    Dammit, I'm not done with my Guard yet!
