Sweet. Thanks.

I already re-modeled my chaplain with a lightning claw and he looks Bad @ss. I am not going to change him again.

My normal space marine chaplain costs 176 points and has:
Plasma Pistol, Artificer Armor, Frag Grenades, Melta Bombs, Jump Pack,
Terminator Honors

So a cheaper Chaplain that has terminator armor, Lightning claws, and Terminator honors totalling 170 points is actually a nice break.

I had the same issue, so I modeled his second LC into his base. It was ripped off while he assaulted a tank, apparently ;-)

Ohh, the old LotD veteran sergeant w bionic arm? The base is kind of cluttered which takes away from him as a whole, but it's remarkable how fast those apothecaries throw new arms on their men! Still stumped around their feet!
Damn good choice for a chaplain model though.

Who says he lost his arm in that?

It's hard to tell from those pics, but the LC gauntlet is hollowed out. The explosion ripped the gauntlet off his powerarmor, revealing the skeletal bionic arm beneath.

As for the base, I think it could be the fact that the base has more color than the model right now that's making it look like it;s drowning him out. I also plan on spreading it out a bot, giving him a larger base that that one slots into, so maybe it won't look so cluttered then...It's hard to fit an important piece of wargear like a LC onto a small base after all.

I always did like LC's myself. Something about being able to reroll missed wounds with a power weapon just give a fellow the tingles

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Looks pretty slick! Though I was never much a fan of the new 'knuckleduster" style LC


If you wanted hi to get the extra attackw itout chopping a hand off the mode, you could hollow out another LC and then sling it onto his back, like he carries it around until he's about to charge in, then he holsters the CA and straps on the LC

I actually thought about doing that. As long as I pay the points for the extra lightning claw (and tell my opponent) that's all that matters.

Pay the points and stuck it on the model. You don't have to tell them if it;s clearly represented on the model (though it is rather sportsmanly of you to do so)

I agree with Galahad
telling your opponent you have twin lcs and not have them on the model in a tourney could gte you into wysiwyg hell and thats not worth it

i love the hollowed out lc idea nice touch i do that with all my marines that dont have helmets i hollow out a helmet and hang it from the belt
