    Plagueclaw Catapult

    What could I use to build a Plagueclaw Catapult?
    There are 3 crew right?

    Any other helpful comments appreciated.

    uh there really isnt any "crew" as they are not separate models, yes they should be all over the catapult, but not standing around it.

    Any idea on how to build one of these things out of a current kit or should I break out the balsa wood and greenstuff?

    what existing catapults from GW? Do you mean like a Bret trebuchet altered to launching warpstone?

    that, or theres the orcs and gobos one, or the screaming skull catapult from tomb kings, but you are defiantly going to have to get creative to make it skaven plague style.

    I would suggest trying to destroy and modify a trebuchet. That would be really cool looking.
    How can you Master the Masterless?

    I'm using a (lightly) modified Balefire Catapult from Mantic Games Undead range. It's cheap (eight quid), hard plastic and the right size. A bit of a no-brainer, this one!



    Linky to Undead-Balefire-Catapult

    Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?

    When I envisage the plaguclaw I imagine a monstrous, three-storey-high structure of nightmarish splendour (short story writing mood coming out...). I am actually planning to use a plague furnace and convert it so that 2(maybe 3) rat ogres(pulling chains, like out of the screaming bell kit) will actually be launching the load of dead bodies(zombie kit will help along with empire bitz box). I will make a "claw" to launch the debris out of a screaming bell or the giant plague censer. Might use a bit of both want to make a bowl shape with spiks around the mouth of it(hell cannon maybe). I know this conversion will cost me hundreds of dollars (AUS) but I really want it to be a centre piece model.

    And as such: I won't be using something like that undead catapult, it's too small. Though it has given me the idea to search among other model suppliers. Do you know any other companies other than GW?
