Finally picked me up a squad of chaos terminators on saturday, want to run these basically as a retinue for my chaos lord (though im aware they will be classed as a seperate squad and occupy an elites slot). Anyhoo it'll be a squad of 4-5 havent decided yet. But I want one of them to be a banner bearer for the army, actually with a banner in his hand, not just sticking out of his back. But chaos termies are supposed to be equipped with a power weapon and storm bolter before any options are applied. If my guy has a banner in his left hand he cant really hold a power weapon too. Now I cant really class him as not having a power weapon as its already in his basic profile. But I cant model him holding one either, any thoughts?
Wll it seems common around here that you can kind of ignore wysiwyg regarding standart gear like the power weapon in this case. Just make an awesome banner and nobody should complain because they are too distracted by the awesomeness of that banner. If you really want to stick to 100% wysiwyg just give the banner some kind of pointy tip or a blade so it could make for a power spear/halberd.
You could also model his bolter on his arm, as a wrist weapon; or more unusually how about shoulder mounted bolters.
I do like 'Moschaboy's' idea though.
Perhaps you could make a spear or pike and model the banner hanging from it, so it could look like a banner and power weapon, and model a bolter on the forearm like Lord Ramon suggested. How much conversion work do you want to do?
I chopped of the axe part of my termy's power weapon and glued an icon there.. If someone asks I just say he badgers them with the icon =D
Be nice to your enemies, it will make them madder!
Wow, thanks for all the replies guys. wrist mounted storm bolter on the banner arm sounds like a winner. And coincedentally somebodies selling a grey knight captain storm bolter arm on ebay. Thanks so much for the idea. Hmm, spose I'll need a modelling saw to cut that shoulder pad off now
I wouldnt bother with either the combi bolter or the power weapon. Just have it hanging from a hook on his waist or rammed into a head on the base.
You could easily make a banner using sections from the Terminator socerers staff.
oh, i know, why not a .. *drumroll* Bolter crotch!
Just lop off everything behind the magazine, some glue and careful positioning, and Bob's yer uncle.
If you've seen from dusk til' dawn , then you know the one i mean.
If you haven't... What are you waiting for?!?... seriously... Do it!
