Hi all,

I got an oblit from GW mail order last night. Only problem? No head! Tried calling GW's customer service, and they are "closed for the holiday"(???) in the US. Now, I know that GW will likely just send me another blister, but my question is, does the blister normally come with a sprue of 2 or more heads? After I get my replacement, I'll still want to use my defective figure... :)

just 1 head, though convertingone shouldn't be a problem. I did one that used the head of a warrior of chaos that I liked a lot better then the original.

You normally get one metal head in the blister, if you want to fix your missing head one populair choice is putting a terminator helmet there, might need some trimming.

Well, if you do insist on being independent from us.... ;)

Well you know, the flag was very nice and all...

Actually I was more surprised they were closed on a Thursday, when the 4th is on a Sunday. I only get that monday off, must be nice...

Thanks for the replies! I eventually filled the empty space with the bare head from the CSM Terminator sprue, with the neck cut down and the back of the head filed a bit to fit. I stuck it on a big blop of epoxy, and primed it black tonite!

I'll wait until I get my other 2 Oblits (I ordered a 2nd from another source, and my eventual GW replacement) and airbrush them along with my DP. Excited!

Maybe they get Canada Day (the first) off as well, given that they're TECHNICALLY GW North America. Mooching free holidays sounds good.

you get one head, but use plastic terminator heads instead. they look way cooler.

converting the heads on obliterators is no bad thing, prob a good thing ye didnt get a head
