    Raptor Conversion Examples?

    Hey guys, I'm sort of in the conceptual phase of a fresh Night Lords army using Blood Angels rules. I like the normal raptor models, but I'm not sure I want all Raptor models, and to make things a little fun I was thinking of converting some Raptors using regular CSM as a base, and I was wondering if any of you LO users out there had some pics to share with me, or tutorials of what have you about some other ways to represent Chaos Raptors aside from the normal default models.

    hey, I dont have pics but you could get some plastic tubing and some greenstuff to mount onto the back of the standard backpacks of the regular CSM, this was what i was thinking to do when i got around to finishing my battleforce.

    Edit: i saw this page had a picture of a different jump pack for night lords (3rd one down) you could probably mount these as plasticard wings on the side of the standard packs after pulling off the vents.

    The Chaos Possessed box has plastic backpack/wings that look absolutely fantastic as raptors.


    Or you could chaos-up the normal marine jump packs


    If you want to look on ebay you might find some of the old raptor models


    Or use the blood angel packs from the sanguinary guard -

    Hey,

    I'm on the road, so I can't link you to any of my pics, but -

    Lighting, kitchen light fixtures, home lighting, bathroom light, led lights, fluorescent lamps & bulbs, outdoor lighting

    Two of these and a drop of CA make an inexpensive, yet decent JP.
    I used the orange GBs for my Marines, and the blue for my "FoT".
    There's also a style available with inbuilt "wings" for Ork players. ;- )

    Favorite leg bits for my Raptors were spare Biker and KB 'bent' legs.

    with a little cutting here and there you can make quite nice (and cheap) wings out of the tyranid Gargoyles kit.
    it is a bit hard to convert and you really need to pin them, but they look very chaos.
