    Modeling lash

    Hello all. This is my first post in the chaos forums I think. However, i've been reading a lot of stuff here for the past couple of months that have helped me to be a better player as well as build better armies.

    Today I just have a simple question: How do you, if at all, model or DP with LoS? Wings I can see as being easy provided you find the right oens, but when it comes to marks and certain warp powers, is it realistic to try to model them at all so people can see what your running WYSIWYG, or just announce them at the start?

    Thanks for your time

    It's important to model the MoS but not necessarily psychic power. If you really wanted to, I guess you could go with a lucius-style whip instead of the sword.

    You do not need to model psychic powers. They don't fall into WYSIWYG (how can you model someone's brains? wait... don't answer that XD). Modelling an actual whip can look cool, though.

    As stated above, you do not have to model lash since it's a psychic power.

    However, on my sorcerers and demon princes I take about three days before each match to sculpt a likeness of my opponent crying about how broken Lash is then I give it to them before the game starts. I think that's the best way to represent Lash visually.

    Haha, love that idea, it's just slightly too much hassle though.

    I like the barbed wire idea mentioned earlier, it seems like something Slaaneshi to some extent, although I'd probably try and model the lash to look like barbed wire, but closer to the scale of the actual model...? Otherwise youd've thought the bards would be huge...

    I made a lash of torment thing for a Lucius conversion back in the last edition before the model was even talked about much. I used the picture on his codex entry as a guide, and used 4 really thin piece of green stuff and kind of twined them together. I don't have the model anymore though

    Hey,

    Example: Drill a small hole through a fisted hand.
    Glue a small inverted skull to the underside of the fist to represent the "pommel".
    Then glue a length of silver solder into the drilled hole to form the "Lash". Done.
