Welcome to Librarium Online!
I need alot of of them, as I am making Shrike's followers. Any suggestions of cost effective ideas or converison. Please I need your help on this one fellow LO converters.
prior to the latest codex and model releases, the traditional approach was either:
use assault termie LCs - people have issues with this as they tend to look too large
Conversion using a power fist and 4 SM knife blades suitably trimmed
Everything you have been told is a lie!
You could get a box of the new assault termies, use the lightning claws, then sell everything else on ebay. Even if you only got $30 back, that would still be cheaper than bitz ordering the old metal ones; and the new plastics look a lot better.
Id go with dodges idea or do....I think it was Yuushins idea of using Necron flayed one hands for LCs.
It's been a minute.
I have a couple ideas, as follow:
Idea A:Use this for my claws...
Idea B:Green stuff these as my claws...
Idea A is obviously easier, but more expensive.
Idea B is obviously hard but more cool, and relatively inexpensive.
If you know a nids player you can use powerfists and the gaunt claws they would be really long lightning claws but really cool

There is a bit on the tyranid monster sprue:
it is an armour plate, but I find you can affix it to the back of powerfists to make very nice lightning claws.
