    ok i know this wont be relevant till august but how will you put a vc on the fexs left side?? i agree with slicer and uzi that the best bet is putting the 2 vcs below and a pair of decorative sts on top. I havent done this yet but heres what im thinking.

    Take the Vc and chop it into 3 pieces. The first piece will be the end of the vc to right past the whole where the arm is. The second is chopping the "arm" off that connects to the VC now with the other arm chop it at the elbow. Use the upper part of this and glue it to the middle part of the VC. Now take the end and glue it upside down to forge your now new VC. Finally glue the last two pieces together and glue them into the hole and the right side of the fex. Use green stuff to smooth at any wacky bumps or misshapes that take placec, or to add spikes and what not.


    Sound viable? Also, because you turned the vc upside down it looks like the two vcs have evolved a bit differently, giving that whole "evolution so theyre similar but not exact" type thing.

    Anyways, thoughts, comments, or better ideas? Im all for em.

    or you could just join the vc to part of a left arm rending claw

    plus I think I was the one who suggested decorative scything talons

    not that anyone cares

    Are you retarded? Why put a VC on a fex anyway? Complete waste of time (but so is a barbed strangler that can't get penetrating hits in the new rules). Give it R Claws & S talons instead. Maybe have a B/s on a second fex

    Well, with the new shooting rules, "monstrous creatures can fire two weapons per turn". so it means that we will certainly see more fexes and Tyrants with 2 VC's...

    Im definetly getting 2 vcs on one fex, 2 devourers on another then a cc fex which will really just be old one eye... <_< cause im not going to fork out more cash for more fexs, alternatively I could have interchangable weapons on the fex, like Ive heard people on here suggest.... (I think Uzi&#39;s is done with magnets&#33; ooooo&#33; )

    Also I see more point on giving a fex 2 vcannons than giving it rending claws.... :blink: your wounding everything in the game on 2s&#33; (pretty much) and already ignoring saves..... Id rather have another set of talons and get more attacks&#33; :lol: Also your a TMC with Str 10.... how many dice do you want for penetration&#33; :lol: :lol: :lol: just a thought&#33;

    PS Also it was Clarkdobbs112 that thought of the decorative talons thing&#33; I would never come up with anything creative modeling wise, not skilled in that department&#33; :lol: or painting either actually&#33; anyway I was thinking of modeling my fex with one vcannon pointing forwards if shooting it and model venom spurting out of it and the other vcannon would be held pointing upwards, like in that really cliche (sp?) pose.... just a thought&#33;

    Are YOU retarded, my friend? You would NOT put a VC on a strength 10 creature? At least with a VC you can put some hurt on vehicles before getting into HtH. And even if a Fex with 2 VC&#39;s gets into HtH, it still gets its strength 10 attacks as a monstrous creature&#33; And putting Rending Claws on a strength 10 monstrous creature is a waste of time, unless you are trying to rip apart a Titan or something. No, we shall most definitely see plenty of Fex&#39;s with 2 VC in the near future. (most of these points were made by others, but I think some still aren&#39;t getting it...)

    --- I&#39;d figure Monsieurcartier has seen enough of my posts around to know the points I&#39;d make about the exceptional usefulness of the VC on Carnifexes...

    And since Slicer and Oplopanax already bashed him on the RCs, I got nothing to add to that on either.

    So on topic, what I&#39;m planning to do is cutting off the barrel of the VCannon, and resculpt the "receiver" (for a lack of better word) so that it looks like it&#39;s supposed to go on the left side. Then I glue the barrel back, and I have a left-handed VC. I&#39;ll also pull off something similar with the Devourers and DSpitters, and just maybe BStranglers as well...

    Both arms per side will be converted to hold the single weapon, negating the need for cosmetic weapons which might only confuse the opponent. Actually, it would probably be slightly easier to make an exchangeable harness for two bioweapons than the single variant I currently have... Need to look into this one.

    But don&#39;t expect pics anytime soon, the project won&#39;t start until the new Codex: Tyranids is out.

    Just a thought, what about a Twin Linked VC on the lower half, and decorations on top? It would take a bit of modelling to get it right, bur it could look cool?

    --- SpikeAlike, that&#39;s an idea... I saw a list in which the (extensively converted) Carnifex had two VCannons glued one on top of another (with no other than cosmetic purpose as far as I know, though it could&#39;ve doubled as a CDR beastie). This list has also been in a WD, I just remember the first name of the owner, Marco. This was the same list which had the Mind Slave models.
