Alright guys, quick question here to those who either have the models or have any tips:
There's a pair of models on Forgeworld described as the Space Marine IV Command Set. Its a Space Marine Commander with a Standard Bearer and I'd really like them for my Blood Angels army, not necessarily for games more as the centre piece in the cabinet though I'd like him to lead my force sometimes in matches.
That's all irrelevant; my question is, how to get his damn helmet out of the crook of his arm.
Here's a picture of the model in question:
As you can see, he's holding a Mk IV Maximus armour and frankly I think that helmet's one of the nicest looking ones around, but here's the rub, I'm not sure if the helmet comes separate from the arm or if its modeled that way in the spru. If it is the latter, how do you think I could take it out of there without damaging his hand, or do you think I should hit his wrist off and replace it with a fist clutching a bolt/plasma pistol etc?
The respirator pipe seems to go between his thumb and forefinger of his hand but I don't think I'd have a tool small enough to cut that free; if anyone has any tips, I'd really appreciate it. At £20 its somewhat of an investment for two models and I'd really like them to look fantastic, so any tips, again, would be really appreciated.
