I want to use a unit of possessed with daemonic talons and do not know what to use. I despise most of the mutation sprew and do not like the new possessed models we will soon have the missfortune to lay our eyes on. so any ideas?
I know this might not sound too appealing at first, but whether or not you're a stranger to green stuff, use it. Use in conjunction with existing chaos sprues or the awsome various tyranid (warrior/genestealer) sprues (lots of organic looks and spikes). The more you work with that stuff the cooler stuff you'll be able to make and i've seen some awsome stuff! :yes:
Well, good luck with everything.
Demonic talons aren't too hard the models just need to look mutated you could try Dryads and smooth down the twigs and stick them all over your Possessed. After that the twigs could be painted as tentacles. I'm not sure if it would work but it's a start.
Tyranid sprues are a very good source for claws and the like. Spare parts like a plastic Ork arm here a Kroot's arm there will give an impression of mutations running riot.
Cut horns off of Chaos marine heads and stick the horns on other heads, Guard, Kroot, Genestealers and so on. These new weird heads can then be put on your Possessed.
The basic idea is to allow everything to run riot that's how I did mine.
Ive used the hands of flayed ones. They look good, but Ive heard of someone using arms from arco-flagellants too. I think the best thing might be to use different conversions on each model, give it a less organized look...more chaotic, right?
the Obilterator Claw sprue, with a ball of green stuff. I love the way the few possessed I used these for came out. looks very talonish.
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
attack the sprue itself with a knife. not an exacto knife, since you need power over control. cut and shape it into the randomly shaped pieces of bone and chitin you need, mold to the arms of the models with Green Stuff.
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
I did a ridiculously simple conversion for my 2 squads of possessed.
I happened to have a few dwarf helmets kickin around,and some old orc arms.
I cut the horns off the helms and the hands off the arms.
Glued the horns to the wrists,and there were my possessed.
That's the rank and file,the champions have the sprue arms.
