How do you model a brazier of hoyl fire? What does it even look like?
There's the flaming Back pack the new cannoness models have, there's also the acolyte holding the two thin flamer tubes. And that sage which you can use as an acolyte holding a book and a long staff with a fire on the top.
If you want to model try a peice of copper tubing and attach something like a flamer hear or on of the tips of the models I've mentions above, of course try to add abit more on than just that to make it look authentic, but those are just the bare minimun.
Well... a Brazier is basically a bowl where you burn things. The black coach has a couple...
As long as it's some sort of flaming vessel - bowl, torch, thurifer (that's one of them incense-globes you see altar boys with) - it should be fine.
I just modeled my Seraphim Superior to have one - removed her pistol, bent the wrist down a bit, and used the torch-top from one of the Throne of Judgment's banner bits. Fashioned a bottom out of a plastic Brettonian lamp top, so it sort of looks like a "Goblet of Fire." Oh, yeah... we'll be calling her Sister Superior Potter, alright.
lol. Got another one for you: seraphim with inferno pistols. THere doesn't seem to be a model for it, and the only inferno pistol I can find is commander Dante's.
Brazier - On my Sera VSS I removed one pistol (just the top and the bottom, keep the hand), drilled the hand through and fed some hobby chain through. The top end I wrapped around her hand (covered up a multitude of sins ) and the hanging end I mounted on to (in to actually) the top of a plastic skull. Metallic paint the skull and paint effect flames in the eyes and mouth with smoke up the face. Looked ok.
Inferno's - chop the front of your Bolt Pistols or Flamers on the Sera/Character and add a melta gun muzzle to the remains of the stock. Easy and looks like the short range cannon it is.
I cut a torch off of another miniature and used that.
"The sword that takes life gives life."
You could just use a plastic melta barrel and stick it on a bolt pistol...
But then it's got that clip, which doesn't make sense, and it doesn't have the iconic "melta bulge" - that sort of oblong piece with the small rectangles on it - or the hoses, or...
Sure, it's good 'nuff for gaming I suppose, but really just looks like a Bolt Pistol with a funny flash supressor.
I'd suggest using either Dante's or the Canoness's Inferno Pistol, sawing away the holding hand, and saw away the bolt pistol or hand flamers from one of the bolt pistol Seraphim. they're all 90-degree cuts, so cutting, cleaning, and mating the new guns to the hands is pretty easy.
It looks bulky, but cut the barrel off a meltagun, replace the barrel on the bolt pistol with that, cut the mag off the bolt pistol and replace it with a melta bomb from the SM sprues (most SM players have loads of these lieing around) with the handle cut offOriginally Posted by Commander Y
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Finally got some pictures up on my site of what I mentioned above - Only the bases are painted so far, but there's black-primed pics of the Seraphim conversions (Superior with Brazier/Eviscerator, Inferno Pistol sister, Flamer and BP converted Seraphim).

Hope that helps for some ideas!
