Simply, has anyone ever seen pictures of raptors made from regular marines? I LOOOOVE (cannot stress enough) the look and fluff of the raptors, they are just evil and so damn cool, but I don't like metal models, but before I started, wondering if anyone had ever seen such a thing?
Pics would be most appreciated with rep!
I've never seen anyone do this...but I doubt it would be too hard to achieve with a decent chunk of GS and some plasticard.
The major differences look to be helmet, feet, and jumppack.
the feet I am most worried about, but I think the easiest way I can think to do it is buying square plasicard of increments that decrease and cut them on angles for the toes/feet whatever, the backpack I was thinking of cutting a cylinder piece of card in half, glueing another piece of flat card to the cut ends, then just arranging a crazy bunch of wires for the important stuff, and an arrow or two.
The face/helmet I think would be the most challenging, as its easily the coolest part, but plasticard again could work, I try to do anything I think I CAN do with card, with card, as I can't sculpt to save lives.
Thanks for the support of the idea!
If the square pieces for the feet don't work out..you could always make something similiar to an Ork powerklaw (but on a smaller scale) and use those for feet.
I'll grab you a PK tutorial in a second...
There ya go:
Power Claw 101 - Da WAAAGH
After looking around a bit more I came upon this tutorial for PKs which would probably be simpler...
Just cut the CSM legs at the knee and adjust the claw part of the klaw accordingly
Power Klaw How-To - Da WAAAGH
(probably would look pretty good for Iron Warriors)

Actually not a bad idea, would definately give them a wickedly evil look(I keep using that word cos I really do think these guys should be way more kick ass than they are, they should be lords on their own ), but I'll have to stop and get supplies today! I'll let you know how it goes, I have some left over khorne berzerkers, so I may use them for test pilots
I made my own raptors from various chaos bits. Possessed parts make good wings for the jump packs and very ornate armour, normal chaos marine parts mixed in make them look normal enough not to be possessed. I used one or two of the old rators too for variation. Then I took Lucius the eternal, cut off his head and made a chaos lord with wings and blissgiver. Its all down to personal preference but I think they turned out quite well.
Pics as requested, their all in various stages of being complete.
how did you get all those possessed wings? you only get 2 in the possessed box.
Most likely bought of a Bitz site.
