I'm building a Chaos army and I want to arm a Chaos Lord with lightning claws. Are there any models that come with them so I can swap them on or will I have to model them myself from scratch? Any pointers would be appreciated.
if he's armed with termie armor, Get teh Abbadon model, if he has a mark, get the appropriate special character, also get teh chaos termie champ with the lightning claw. Take a craft-saw or a dremmel tool and (carefully) cut off the combi-bolter from the talon of horus (one lightning claw). Take a pair of nippers or a craft-saw and take off the shoulderpad of the lightning claw termie champ's arm. if you're using abbadon as a base body, you can easily just glue these on to the spaces where the talon of horus and Drach'nyen would be (as a side note, if you decide to keep the cables on the termie champ's arm connected to teh lightning claw, these can be bent to sort-of hide the end in Abbadon's 'armpit' If using Mark of Khorne, i find that Kharn's head looks really good on Abbadon's body. If mark of Nurgle, may want to attatch the lightning claws to Typhus.
If mark of Slaanesh, you're on your own, but a doom-siren head might not look too bad there.
(sorry if i went a lil overboard on this post :rofl: )
A bit cheaper way, there is a marine terinator with pair of lightning claws blister. Either convert him with any spare bits or buy him as well as the base of another chaos model you want and use the arms from the marine.
Some of We Are Legion's ideas sound very good though, if you have the money go for one of them or something of that calibre. Remember you don't need to buy the whole models either, get the bits you need from the GW online store or just local mail order. Except in Australia...
Check out my post in the money saving conversions topic at the top of the page. I did it for a loyalist marine, but the principle would be the same.
the new sm veteran has a pair of lightning claws you can bit order for like 1.25... they're power-armor lightning claws, not termie-scale ones

the simplist idea would be to take the normal csm lord (the one with the sm head in his hand) and replace it with abbadons talon of horus, then paint it up in the colours that you wish.
