Whenever i post an army list im told frenquently to give sergeants a powerfist & BP.
the problem of this is actually GETTING powerfists! Can you buy sprues of them or are there certain models you can get that come with them or what?
I have an old squad of SM terminators that i dont need anymore bcoz i play dark angels and have new DW termies. so i was thinking of ripping the powerfists off of those, but they look a little too big on a normal size space marine.
So basically what i wanna know is, is it ok to use a terminator arm for a serg's powerfist (i would file off the terminator honours badge, and make it a little smaller etc). & if not. then how do u propose i go about getting some powerfists?
Of coures you can, I was thinking of doing the very same thing with my old terminators, and it actualy looks cool(if its cut neatly).Originally Posted by DA_recruit
And I am pretty sure that you can buy sargents with power fists in a blister pack at GW.

Absolute worst case, you can pick up the Commander box. It's a bit more than a blister, but you get a -lot- of nifty little bits in that box. Plus, if you're willing to clip a bit, you can turn the Lightning Claw into a second Power Fist. I picked up one to practice playing around with magnets. The extra injection of special weapons was nice.Originally Posted by Blue Wave
you could also just buy the sprue in the assault squad that has all the power weapons and stuff and I think you also get some running legs Im not sure though.

Ah, I asked this question a long time ago myself, and so have already investigated the same problem myself. I decided in the end the best source for making powerfists is:
If you chop the protruding elements off, the ends of the powerfists look like giant knuckle dusters....which is cool. Try ordering that sprue, gives you two powerfists for £2.50.
No no no... Get hold of this sprue: http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefr...9014&orignav=9
It is available from mail order and it also gives you a nice variety of other weapons. I have quite a few of these sprues lying around.
thanks guys but i went ahead last night and created a vetean sergeant with powerfist totally out of spare parts from a tactical squad box set (besides the back pack & back half of the torso which came off of an old marine). filed the badge off the terminator arm and used it. it turned out GREAT!. the only downside is that the terminator powerfists are open palmed so it doesnt look quiet as good as a clenched fist. which means you cant have him posing with the fist raised in the air as an angry battle cry etc etc..
but it still looks good hanging to his side slighty out in front of him with the other bolt pistol (with scope) arm pointing up at 45 degrees, & head turned towards his left(powerfist arm). added afew extra detail parts like purity seals, pouches & those material type scrolls etc.
considering it didnt cost me a cent im very very pleased with it. THe moral of the story is HANG ON TO THOSE SPARE PARTS & OLD MODELS!
if any of you are lucky enough to have some spare or old terminators that u dont need then i would definately reccomend trying this.
i would have gone with those sprues but bcoz i live in Australia its not worth paying the international postage cost to havbe something shipped from UK (and waiting 2 weeks) for a meesly 2-3 dollar sprue.
Good advice if you want a variety of close combat weapons, but if you just want the powerfist I still say you should go with mineOriginally Posted by BobaHat
4 Powerfists for Â£5 against 2 for Â£4.
I got mine from a Space wolves battle force box.
