Welcome to Librarium Online!
I think you will find that the tubing under the plasma gun is an electric guitar string.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
I was looking through the GW site and saw something that i've seen before in WD with those pre-heresy space marine examples.
I saw the one for the Word Bearers and think it would be a great conversion, pre-heresy or not for a marine army. The examples (painted and not painted) are below, i'm just wondering if anyone has any idea on what bits were used on this? Especially the head, arms, and that tubing in the plasmagun...
I believe the Arms come from the Iron hands Sm box set. But i couldn't tell you were the head came from. BUt im guessing it came from the same Box set.
That's funny, Hard Aun's post is on top for some reason but it doesn't look like he started the topic...
Anyway, the cables are probably guitar strings and the arms are Iron Hands arms as said. The head is not from the IH set I don't think, it looks like a biker or land speeder head with the little antenna. Maybe it's from the Typhoon pilot?
I think the body is probably a Grey Knight in power armour as it's got the text on the legs and the book on the chest.
It's a pretty messy conversion and painted messily as well but it still looks quite effective.
