How do you bend the legs and the arms of crisis suits so that it looks like they are kneeling or holding their arm straight out? I want to do this with some crises suits that I will be getting soon. The regular positions of the limbs are really static and they look boring.
I havn't tried it yet, but the general idea with the arms is to carefully cut the top (optional) and bottom of the elbow joints. This should give the upper arm, lower arn, and a near-circular joint. Then it is just a matter of positioning the arm further around the joint and gluing it in place, although you may want to pin it for strength.
There is a nice example here: GW Online : Image : *Click to Close*
With the legs, there are several aproaches, depending on skill and equipment. One is to take a jeweler's saw, and carefully cut around the underside of the thigh armour, freeing the knee joint, which you then move to the position you want, round off (dryfitting to check the result) and glue it back on, pinning if you want. Then either carve the same notches in the new "knees" as they started with, or give the pilot some GS or plasticard kneepad armour to hide the change. Be careful with this, as it is easy to get wrong, or mess up a leg on.
Another way is just to cut the leg just above the knee, and perpendicular to the thigh armour. Then remove the armour plates left on the sides of the knee, round it as before, and then glue it in place (pinning would be a good idea here). Then replace the missing armout with plasticard shaped to match, and finish as before.
I will let you know if I rmember any more.
