I'm currently converting Captain shrike into my DA Commander. I've replaced his right arm with the Sword of Secrets off of the Azrael model and I'm now looking for something to replace his left lightning claw with. I intend to give him a bolt pistol and have a metal master crafted one ready but i need to find an arm to run from under his shoulder pad to the pistol. I can't find or think of any decent left arms to use.
I'm after something a bit fancy and a bit beefy (Shrike is a big fella) to go with the rest of the model. Can anyone think of a good left arm from a particular marine model?
Not many decent left hands in the range, but.
In the blood angels range there's both chaplain lemartes bolt pistol #010116502
and commander Dante's Inferno pistol # 010102702
And if you're looking for something special to clip off you could always take the left arm off of the Iron Father model, from the Iron Hands range, this one's hard to track down, I can't even find the part #. But it's a pretty sweet Bolt pistol, with Bionic arm even!
And the cool thing is that the rest of him works for great bionic parts for other marines.
I also forgot to mention that 2 of the Black templar Sword Brethren have left hand Bolt pistol bits, they also happen to have scopes and have the look of being mastercrafted.
I've finished it off with the left arm off a terminator model now. I couldn't find the actual terminator model through searches (it a conversion in itself) but its definately a Dark Angels Termy. It's a normal hand with a storm bolter attached to the back?
I trimmed the storm bolter down a little to look more like a bolt pistol. Looking at the model, Shrike is enormous. His power armour is the same size as most terminator's armour. A normal marine's left arm wouldn't be anywhere near big enough IMO.
There's need for a bit of greenstuff for the elbow of the left arm but overall i'm really pleased with the result. IMO it looks better than Shrike did originally. He now has the Sword of Secrets from Azrael tilted slight back so it's lifted above and behind his line of sight and the left elbow is bent, holding the bolt pistol arm aloft with a clenched fist.
I'm thinking about chopping all of the ex-stormbolter off and replacing with a master crafted bolt pistol but can't decide yet. I'll get some piccies up later for opinions.
