I was looking through the armoury, looking for usefull upgrades for my sorcerer lord.
I want him to help units, be a combat dude witht he help of psychic. and then I saw A pair of lightning fists. Probably gonna take those, but how do I model that? or shouldn't I do that? cause I'm not gonna screw up my sorcerer model with the lightning claws from a termie. then I should give my sorcerer termy armour, and lightning claw right?
but I wanna field the sorcerer model. so that means no lightning claws? or do I miss something here?
The best bet is to look on the games-workshop site for the actual bitz. Unless you're like me and refuse to pay $7 to ship a $1.50 part that weighs less than an ounce. If you're like me you'll choose to make the modification instead of buying anything. For lightning claws I usually start with a powerfist and add the claws using parts from the plastic sprues for other models. Take the actual sprue skeleton and cut a claw-shaped bit from it and attach to the powerfist. Repeat for each claw of the fist.
You could also make a Wolverine (Marvel comics) type claw for your sorceror. Just make the claw bits from the sprues and attach them to the models arm.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
While converting there is one thing that is so nice when fielding a Chaos army.
There is so many ways to do it.
I've made "wolverine-claws" from pure greenstuff and it looks great (from some distance, OK it was one of my early conversions.). I'll post a pic on the gallery and hopefully you can get some inspiration.
EDIT: They should be up soon but they are rather dark and of meager quality, I hope you can see something
EDIT II: I couldn't see anything, so I deleted them. Must learn how to use that camera...
Haha I just gave mine 2 PFs... they are claw like, and then I can just specify, because its not like a model will have 2 powerfists. I think people would just assume they are lightning claws.
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
If you chop up some tyranid rending talons, they look very good for mutated claws. What legion is your sorceror for? Mine is for death guard, so I took Typhus' body without the manreaper, and gave him the claws. You'll probably have to bend the claws a little bit, but it looks sweet.

"Your kid puked on me. I should get extra marks for that."
Then give a terminator armour to your lord and deepstrike them all

I would try to talk you out of this expensive retinue for a Tzeentchian-lord, but I understand your craving for them too.
If you really want to blow points in this dimension then I would recomend a unit of possessed with Daemonic flight, this way you'll get an awsome unit of flying sorcerers for "only" very much points.
Why not use the aspiring champion model from the raptors... he has lightning claws and daemonic flight.
