View Full Version : Space Marine Captain conversion ideas

02-12-2011, 02:37
Wasn't sure where to put this post, so I'm putting it here. Basically I'm starting a Howling Griffons army and I want my Captain to stand out. I really want to have him in Terminator Armour, and give him not one but two Thunder Hammers.

Then I realised I have no idea how I would achieve that, seeing as how I have never converted a single model before.

So, little help? I'm just wanting ideas on where to start.

you can get thunder hammer bits for one arm on GW bitz section of the store, or just buying an assault terminator box. not sure about the other arm. It would be much easier if you did this with a power armour model.

I know, but having the Captain in power armour doesn't make him seem so formidable

You need a terminator (plastic) model.
You need the Sgt's power sword arm (important).
You need TWO thunder hammer arms.

Cut the second thunder hammer just above the hand.
Cut the sword off just below the quillions (crossguard).
Glue thunder hammer shaft to hand where sword was.

For extra strength on the bond, research "pinning" (it will help that hammer stay on) the shaft into the hand.
