Hi all ive just started putting together my new SM
army for 4th edition 40k which ive based on the
japanese style samurai so far i have a five man
tactical squad with rocket launcher & flamer!!
sgt has custom made sword, made from plastic
sprue!! which turned out to look pretty cool!
But now ive started to work on my leader which it
seems i need serious help with! :rolleyes:
i'm intending on having him on a SM bike as well as
converting a second version of him with jump pack!
So wot i really need is some ideas of which i can build
a samurai type helmet for him/them!
Any ideas/suggestions welcome!!
For the mask, the Necromunda Redemptionist brethren with autogun [check the IG collectors guide or online store] has a samurai mask. There are NO GW samurai models at all, so try making the kabuto [helmet] out of greenstuff with the redemptionist mask as a basis.
Why does everybody want to make a samurai themed army now-a-days? scouts would be ninjas and the likes?
I'll direct you here: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/i...howtopic=51305 same topic, another forum. you might get some more help there. allthough I have a sneaky feeling that your the same dude that posted over there!
If you need some more inspiration, try looking at silver samurai from the Wolverine comis (pisture here: http://members.aol.com/thefightingfu...ix/silver.gif) he has the right outfit. also the mask that samurais wears Is called the mask of ordeal. They put It one before a battle to never let their enemies see their emotions, as well as to frighten them. It Is also said that the samurais souls was trappes inside theese masks, and If they broke they would just collapse.
i'm thinking of a helmet that i can maybe take on
& off or maybe even make an additional head, which
i have seen done before!! if anyone can remember the
General Maximus model that someone did for games day
a few years ago they'll know what i mean!
again all ideas/suggestions welcome!
Can we see some pictures of the guys you already have done?
Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.
Damn you! You stole my idea
I was gonna call mine the Bushido Marines..I got the ide after watching The Least Samurai
looks cool though seriously.Youre best bet is probably gonna be makin' a greentsuff helmet though.
Well, I'm not sure if any other country had Samurai, but thanks for narrowing it down to how many different Samurai? No, Ghost Dog doesn't count. Nor do any American kids who think they are Japanese.Originally posted by Kyarl Deathaxe@Sep 8 2004, 06:22

I would try to Green Stuff a helmet.
R U 0K!??!? BUHHHHST WUUUULFFFFF!!!
For the helmet the only solution would be green stuff, just grab a pic of a real life samurai helm to get inspiration, probably u should work the armor plates with greenstuff too, or u could make the plates out of plasticard or something like that, if ur mounting him on a bike make sure u add one of those really cool samurai banners, in the back of the bike, and u should add a cavalry lance (japanesse style offcourse) to get the samurai feeling even more, besides the katana like power sword.
