For my next coversion, I was thinking of a librarian on bike. That way, when he turbo boosts, with his artificier armour and veil of time, he has a +2 invulnerable save, re-rollable. (better than a shadowfield!
I was wondering if anyone else thought this and if they made the conversion? I've been thinking about making the model, so if anyone else made it could they say how they did/from what materials? I though about take a librarian and sawing his arms and legs off and attaching it to the bike, but obviously there must be a simpler way. Any offers on how other people did it?
(Y) Nice idea. I hadn't thought of that. As best I know all the Librarians are metal, so your gonna have to slice and dice to get the force weapons. Of course you could just go with the Chap on bike model and use a power weap for his force weap, that would be very easy to do. As for the Psycic hood, ummmm...... well your on your own for that. But let us know what you do, that way I can STEAL, umm I mean use your Idea............. Yeah, thats what I ment. :hmm:
breath, sight, squeeze.
now double tap just for grins
and Another One bite's the dust.

It doesnt actually look as hard as imagined it to be, after doing some research.
I imagine if I took the model marked Lexicanium with Force Sword:
and I cut him in half and glued him to the body of the Biker Chaplain:
It would make a decent librarian on bike.
I chose that particular Librarian model, as he is leaning forward with his left arm, like the chaplain, and unlike some other Librarian models (like the one with the force axe), he doesnt have the book at the hip. I'd use the axe model, but you gotta figure that book is going to be a pain.
Only thing I must figure out now is what to do for a familiar. Yes, Im being thorough, and I need to stick my familiar on the same base. Im thinking about a cherub sitting on the back of the bike......or maybe the handlebars?
edit - Re-rollable +2 invulnerable save..........cheese?
A cherub dinking on the handlebars would be sooo cute.Originally posted by Addoran@Jan 7 2005, 11:40

how about a servo skull wearing a motorcycle helmet?
I did that kind of conversion a couple of years ago.
I used the "Codicier with Force Staff" (9947010107302) (number is from GW's online store) and cut him in half. everything below the belt was cut off. this also shortened the staff a bit.
Then I simly glued the torso to a SM biker's legs and used a biker's left hand. Some miliput was used to sculpt a scull on the bike and a small skull with horns on the kneepad. I also used an old IG voxcaster as a teleport homing beacon and stuck it to the bike.
Unfortunately I don't have a picture of him right now. (there used to be one on the 40kcantina, but that site is being rebuilt right now...).
And back then there were no familiars... but at the moment I am using Inquisitor Cherub 1 (9947010700106) and just put it next to which ever Librarian I am using at the time. I didn't have time yet to do something fancy.
hmmm.... a cherub sitting on the handlebars.... I got to work on that one....
Shut up and play.
There is (almost) no such thing as cheese. Cheese is somthing invented by nooby players who don't want to figure out how to beat an army, so they just scream cheese until they get what they want. "Cheesy" armies can be beaten. If Enough weapons are shot at that guy, he'll go down, but it'll probably take about 300 shots to take him out. Most likely, people won't waste time shooting the librarian and just try to kill the rest of your army.Originally posted by Addoran@Jan 6 2005, 20:40

Thanks for the advice Lamenter. Sounds like you beat me to the conversion. One question though, on the Librarian model you used, there is a book/pistol holster (hard to tell exactly what it is as the photo is side on) on that model's hip. I was going to steer away from him as it would be a pain to greenstuff, how did you manage it?
it came off. I think I used a handheld mill like a dremel, IIRC (I did it maybe 5 years ago or so). so my librarian doesn't have a book with him.Originally posted by Addoran@Jan 7 2005, 08:33

nowadays I would just sculpt a book onto the bike somewhere, back then I didn't dare to do it.
It is fairly easy if you have a bit of plasticard. Just cut the front and the back cover from plasticard. I used old/unused club membership cards (smae shape and material as credit cards) for a while. then glue them together with a bit of plastic that is slightly smaller in between. once dry you can sculpt the pages and the back in greenstuff.
Just remember to make it thinner that you think it should be
Shut up and play.
Making a librarian from plastic isn't all that hard either, as has been mentioned. There's a "guide" (or at least some pretty clear images) on Black Gobbo
