ok, well the tournies i go to are usual WYSIWYG so power weapons must be modelled. so is it permissable to use a standard veteran superior as armed with an eviscerator as in the description it is described as a "chainsword"
question 2: is the one that comes w/ the canoness a cc weapon or an eviscerator?

So long as you made it clear that the chainsword is being counted as an Eviscerator, I wouldn't imagine there'd be too many problems.
The thing is that the Eviscerator's supposed to be an obscenely huge, 2 handed chainsword, and the standard chainswords (which I assume you're referring to, mostly...) aren't quite suitably massive, nor two handed.
i'd allow it, after all im doing the exact same thing with my celestian superior... im just not using that damn plasma pistol you get with her :sleep:Originally Posted by gen.nehring
question 2: that is an eviscerator... its huge and double sided
i dont think the HAVE to be double handed to count as eviscerators tho... my canoness could sure hold the damn tihng in one hand :w00t:

I don't think you neccesarily need to use the Eviscerators from the Repentia or anything, as long as it's a chainsword and the model has no weapon in their other hand it should be fine.
I think that you can HAVE another weapon with it (pistol for example) but you cannot use it both at the same time (to gain an extra attack in close combat). And I think that the chainsword that comes with Canoness is actually the Eviscerator model...
The canoness' chainsword has a handle long enough to hold with two hands, so I would count that as an eviscerator. The sister superior one (in the box squad) has a very long handle, but not quite two handed in size - still, I would call it one also.

Here's how you do it: Buy an extra sprue and combine two blades to one, then you have a broad blade suiting for an eviscerator. If you're modelling a veteran, just combine the canoness chainsword with the existing chainsword on the model. You can also add a handle on it so it looks like a chainsaw.
I use this on my SoBs, you just need a knife/clipper, a file and some greenstuff to fill the gaps. Sorry to say that i don't have a cam to show the result.

I am not sure why the strong opinion here Was there any official word from GW about that? I think that the only part that shows up under the "eviscerator" name in the GW-online-store is not any bigger or meaner-looking than the mentioned piece (part number: 9947059900706). Actually, it is not a sword at all... Our stuff actually looks like a big, two handed chain-sword, substantially bigger than what the regular VSS or IG officers have. Definitively too big to be swung with one hand (compared to the size of the whole figure)...Originally Posted by Fuard
technically an eviscerator is just a really big chainsword
is there any reason you couldn't make one from adding another chain section to the top of a standard chainsword (with a little work), thereby making it double length, and adding some handle to the bottom?
I'm sure I've seen one done like that for a Priest or something on one of the GW sites
