, I'm wanting to model a whip as my lords cc weapon, was kinda hoping that there would be an appropriate daemon weapon, alas there is not so what power weapon would be best suited...? Ohh and he's an ec lord

I don't believe there are any weapons that are specifically whips (beyond lucius') but as all the demon weapons have their own special rules, there is nothing to stop you modeling them as whips.

I would say that the beauty of the Daemon weapons is that they could be anything. Personally I would pick The Black Mace, the Fleshbane rule could represent some sort of sensory overload when the 'whip' coils round a hapless opponent, and the Cursed rule could represent the rest of the unit succumbing to fits of intense ecstasy/pain.

But these ideas could easily be applied to a different weapon if you wanted to try something new in a different game.

+1 to that! Sounds like a great compromise.

Otherwise, just treat it like a power sword. *Shrug*

Perhaps if you used the GK book, you'd find that a force weapon represents whips well? :p

Yeah that sounds like a plan. Might just do that.

Didn't mean the proxy, my quote button ain't workin to great here. Meant the black mace thingy.

Gotta say I quite like the new dex. Reckon I'm one of the few going by some of other threads on here.

Go on eBay, find a Chaos chariot driver that is by itself, separate from a chariot kit. Buy and cut off whip, pin on Lord's hand, profit!

Never be afraid to go to WFB to find what you need.

Also, this model (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat490057a&prodId=prod1120085) can be an option also

I'm pretty sure the Runt herder in the Ork Gretchen box has a rolled up whip you could hunt down.

someday I'll get this model because I want a bike mounted conversion beamer. Perhaps someone in your local group has wanted to do the same thing?

The Dark Eldar range has something like 4 different versions of whips, most in plastic.

I'd be tempted to use a whip as a power lance. Ideal at a little over arm's distance when there's actually still room to swing a cat (ie the charging turn) but less effective once you're surrounded by the swirl of melee.

Twisted wire is all you need for a pretty decent whip:

Balrog had fiery whip at some point, unless the kit has changed

As mentioned, DE have several whip options.

The Corpse Cart driver has a nice, long whip.

The Packmasters that come with Rat Ogres have whips, but they are in the chunky older style of GW sculpting.

Surprised to see this back from the dead after more than a year.

I scrapped the whip as being a bit clichéd and went for dual lightening claws.

I just felt the looked better on the termie armour.
