Hi all, i recently came into possesion of two 2nd edition carnifexes on eBay, and decided to convert one into a dakkafex. I placed gaunt devourers on its shoulders and replaced the lower talons with carnifex devourer arms.
But i couldnt resist adding the new carnifex sything talons to the upper arm sockets. To make sure nobody thought that these counted as talons, i added more devourer bits, sanded down, to the edges of the talons. Do you think that anyone will complain about this in the tournament scene where it is generally WYSIWYG?? I really wat to use it as it is a really cool model though. Help please!

I dont think many people would have a problem with that.

Just make sure you inform them before the game begins.

It should not be a problem as long as you clear it up before hand. You've at least attempted to make the talons look like devourers, which is usually enough.

What's WYSIWYG?

What You See Is What You Get

ie a chainsword is a chainsword, a guardian is a guardian, etc.

Ok finally I posted my first picture. This is a carnifex I did awhile ago. I inverted the body and modeled the lower talons upward. Makes the fex look more fearsome. Size compared to a fire warrior. :eek:

A comrade has three screamer killers converted to modern nid weaponry for dakkafexes. So choice.

I'm using dragon ogres myself with shaggoths for venom fexxes.
