Welcome to Librarium Online!
Has anyone Tried to make Ratling snipers out of Dwarf models? im going to give it a go.
With any luck i can get that stupid Melware off my computer(i use the one at school, no worries) i can take a picture and send them to you.
i'm not sure about dwarves, Ratlings seem like the 40k equivalent of halflings. if you took off the dwarf's beard, it might work though.
make one with a beard lol and make one with out it, use like a catchan head or something lol but that would look funny
would go great with a skull crusher army!Originally Posted by Lost Nemesis
It works!!!....It works really good. I made 2 Ratling Snipers using Green stuff, a DWarf model, and A Las gun for an infantry platoon. My other computer was infected with Nasty Melware, so it will take some time finding an alternative computer that can adpat to my camera. ill let you guys know by Tuesday if i can or cannot do it, ill try to post them on this forum soon. I had 2 IG players at school tell me they look Better, yes Better then what they sell know. Ill post them ASAP k.
About the beards, you need to shave them if you want to have the position where they look though the scope.
The scopes i used where taken from Space marines but you can build your own some how.
One of the Ratlings i made was lying down with a Camo Cloak on like the real Snipers, looked great.
If he stands up you may want to make a hat for him, the iron clad helmets look bad. you can easily make a cap or do what i did is make those cool Russian hats like the ones the Vallihalin warroirs use.
I highly Recomend making your own if you have the parts rather then buying the blister packs, it's more fun, looks great, EZ on the wallet(all IG players Deserve to save some money) not too hard to do, and oh yes you get a great sence of pride when there finished.
If you do make your own ratling you will proably (and hopefully) do it differently, like give him different things, different pose, and different paint job, write back or send pictures to this forum so everyone can check'em out.:yes:
