I saw in one of the previous white dwarves that one of the new plastic space marine terminators had been converted into a plague cult termie. I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on modelling slaaneshi counterparts? I figured that the assault cannon could easily be converted into a blastmaster, and the cyclone missile launcher would make a great doom siren...and while on the subject, I decided to paint them white with pink tattoo markings on, as they belong to my LATD army. Granted, this is more of a modelling question, but I desperatly need help so that they can be fielded in time for the GT in october. Please help guys/girls/intercetping alien invaders/squirrels with to much time on their hands!!!
Hmm, well with slaanesh too much greenstuff is not needed. Replacing power fists with tentacles will be good, as tentacles are very slaaneshi, but bear in mind that chosen termis don't have power fists - they come with power weapons standard, so you'll need to replace a few power fists with pointy things that can act as power weapons - whips can be made by twining wires and then moulding green stuff around them (look at lucius the eternal's whip in the artwork to get an idea).
As for sonic weapons, i always thought of them as quite stubby - cut off most of the barrel section of the assault cannon and replace it with mesh or something along those lines to act like the end of a speaker, or you could simply equip one with a cone-like item that looks like the guts of a speaker. The cyclone missile launchers can be made into sonic weapons easily - just take the missile racks off and replace them with grilles off of a tank sprue or terrain pieces to make them look like speakers. The storm bolters can be warped with greenstuff, and the front of them replaced with the smaller screaming gargoyle mouth thingy off of the vehicle sprue.
As for slaanesh, the mutations are always fairly clean - stick with well-muscled tentacles rather than giant hands and claws.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

The dirgecaster from the chaos vehicle sprue might be a good muzzle for the weapon.
