I recently discovered that, through the miracle on on-line mail order, I could get a massive amount of ripper models without having to buy gaunts/warriors/genestealers (sure, they are 'classic', i.e. the models made during the stone age, but they still look beautiful).
Anyway, before I give in to my consumerist urges and by a huge number, I'd like to run some things past you guys:
1. These models don't appear to come with bases. Is it 'legal' for me to cut out a cardboard base from a box?
2. How do you get wings onto a classic Ripper model (or any Ripper model, for that matter)?
As long as the base is the same size as the warrior base i dont see why a properly disguised base has to be an official one. You can however buy base's via mailorder or ebay if your concerned though.
As for the conversions, you can buy ripper wings from forgeworld. Create them outta greenstuff or Clip wings off other plastic creatures (other models or plastic joke shop flys etc)
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
For flying rippers you can use the old ripper jack models. They are a little more expensive than the normal rippers but they are much cheaper than the forge world ones are.
