I was wanting to create a chaplain armed with twin lightning claws but I cant find a chaplain body with no arms apart from the terminator one.Any advice?
In this case, I think you'll have to bite the bullet, and chop off the arms from the Power Armour chaplains.
It can't be helped, you know.
Talk to the pros in the conversion forum.
Use a regular marine and begin converting. The skull face from the chaos warriors is a popular choice for a chaplain head. Black Templar bits are also quite nifty, Do not forget to add a rosarius somewhere. (the crux terminatus piece that comes on SM sprues will suffice.

Well a squad of terminators won't be that bad to get the piece. What I have thought of for mine is Captin Shrike of the raven guard. All you have to do is file off there symbols and then it will look pretty good. What I plan on doing though is just not builidng one of my terminators with lightning claws and saving them for the Jump pack chaplain. Which is what I am assuming your putting the lightning claws on from other thread.:yes:
Now as for converting it you can do it one of two ways.
1. Take the assault chaplain and then cut off the arms and get some lightning claws from the terminator box or from two commander boxes. Which would be cheaper by 20$. Not sure of that in pounds or euros.
2. Convert a regular assault marine. Same stuff to get the lightning claws as above. But this one could make him look really cool. Another way if your really good at converting is a power fist and then try to get some claws on it. Which a powerfist comes in the assault squad which is one lightning claw if you do the conversion. Then you can get the commander box which as a lightning claw in it. But there can be one problem and that is that they might be on the same side which might not work. So I would buy the terminator squad then get the assault chaplain. Then just cut off his arms and glue that lightning claws on.
P.S. The shrike would be pretty easy just filing the stuff
Why do you even need to use the lightning claws at all. I have had the same problem and all i did was take the chaos pointy power fist and take off the chaos symbol and the little intake and then I got the assualt pointy powerfist and remodeled that so they werent both pointing outward(it looked funny). But you could say that they are lightning claws like the fingers are so sharp they rip right through the armour. Just a suggestion

Thanks for your help. I wouldnt use 2 commander packs because they are both the same arm. The veterans have twin lightning claws so I was going to use them. Its looking like il have to make the chop. What should I use to chop it off.Will clippers suffice or will I need one of those saws.
A saw would be preferable. Clippers are far too inaccurate and messy.
