I'm a bit of a noob, but... what does reinforced chitin look like? Is it off the carnifex sprue or do you have to use GS to make one? The GW site seems to represent it with some GS on a surface. It's zoomed in that I can't really tell on what body part so I don't have any context to apply it to.
Reinforced Chiten could probably be modeled simply by thickening various parts of the Carnifex's armour. Given the lack of bits and specific instructions, you're pretty much free to choose how far you want to go with such modeling, though.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

Or model nothing at all and say its "harder", made of a stronger material.
If you don't have parts to do it, you could try painting with maybe a little darker color or something.I think this would be fine as long as your opponent lets you and you tell him about it. At least everyone at my local hobby shop and my friends would let me do that and I'd be fine with letting my opponent do that; although, if you where entering a tourny then you'd probally have to model/paint it on.Or model nothing at all and say its "harder", made of a stronger material.
all u'd really need would be a little bit of green stuff "plating" over the more vital parts of a fex's body
There are two GW examples on their website in the Carnifex Conversion article. Both use extra plastic bits so if you're not confident using green stuff then one of these might be an option for you.
Last conversion, called the Scuttle-Basher.
Again, the last conversion, this one called the Death Beetle.
There are no modeling pieces for scuttlers...do you demand people to model those? Hell..I don't even clearly know what they are except they let me scout. My point is...certain things should be looked over and can easily be just let go. It's not like it would be trying to be passing a VC off for a Fleshborer.
I remember reading the WYSIWYG rules a while back but I can't remember where. Here's what I remember of them:
Model must be official GW (or Citadel?) miniature
It can be an older style or converted but must closely represent the new style
All weapons must be modelled (ranged and CC)
All wargear that modifies statlines must be modelled (including armor saves)
Any wargear that indicates it must be modelled must be modelled
Grenades do not have to be modelled
Psychic powers do not have to be modelled
The reasons for the WYSIWYG rules is three-fold:
1. To allow your opponent to identify different models that have different stats.
2. To quickly identify weapons and armor for any model.
3. To make GW more money by making us buy bits not included with the model.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
No, because that's something that takes effect at the beginning of the game and can be quickly forgotten with no repercussions. Much like how Infiltration is - the very fact that you are deploying an infiltrating unit tells me that they have Infiltration. Scuttlers is similar - when deploying the unit, mention that the unit will be Scuttling shortly. Once the first round begins, I don't have to worry about remembering that the unit had Scuttlers, much like how you don't care that my Marines just infiltrated.Originally Posted by Loestal
The problem is that the +1 wound is something that can easily be forgotten over the course of a few heated turns. It's not my job to remember what every single upgrade your list has - it's your job to model it appropriately so that I can look at it and know the important ones, just as it is my job to do the same for you.
What happens if you have two Carnifexes with the same load out, but you could only afford the +1 wound upgrade once? How am I supposd to tell which one has the extra wound? Am I just supposed to ask every time I go to shoot a Carnifex? What if you forget as well? This is a scenario that happens quite often.
I don't mean to sound elitist or anything, but it's just good sportsmanship. Anything that helps make the game go smoother and easier should be considered.
