    Converting Servitor arms (pics)

    Hey all, ok so ive been working on servitors (LINK TO PAINTING FORUM) (HyperX's WIP Servitors) but I really hated the arms they come with, do a quick search on the net, and you'll see... Urk.. ugly.. so here's my take on sculpted arms...

    I still have to finnish 2 arms but here's whats been done up to date...


    Stage 1 - cut off stupid plain shoulder bit...


    Stage 2 - Since my army is 100% magnetized, I rolled 20 gauge copper wire around a rare earth magnet and super glued it there to serve as a frame for the arm sculpt.


    Stage 3 - repeat stage 2, 3 more times and drill holes in strategic places on the bits to glue the new supports in.


    Stage 4 scult green stuff into arms and shoulder plates. Since the magnet makes the shoulder a bit larger than the other servitor arm, ive sculpted "shoulder pad" like plates on top and used the bicep (sp?) on the other arm to align everything.


    More to come
