So folks I tryed many times to convert the Tyranid scything talons into bonsabres for my swarmlord but I don' t think that they look really good,(don' t really like them).
So if you have some Ideas how to make 4 bonesabres tell me (plz)

Here is a pic of my Swarmlord, tell me if you like him

i think i'd have to agree with you here, those sabres just dont look 'sharp' enough

from a quick look around 'teh intar wepz' your best bet would be to make them out of plasticard which is what people seem to do, your other option would be to 'save up' the metal bonesabres from hive tyrants

here is a pritty sweet swarmlord made from a trygon/mawlock (i forget the difference)

tho one thing i really like about your model is the colours on the 'fleshy' parts; very alien, very icky-looking, very well done :D

hope i helped!

Nuh buying other 3 hive tyrants just for the bonesabers is a little expansive, but what is this platicard stuff, tell me more where can I buy that? How dose It work ?

Also I don' t like the Trygon/Mawloc swarmlord too big and don' t like the look

heh, i totally understand not buying 4 tyrants, also unfortunately im yet to find a website that sells metal bitz (only plastic)

now ive never actually used it before myself, but ive seen alot of people who have. plasticard is pritty much how it sounds, sheets of plastic in various thicknesses, its pritty simple to use, draw on the shape you want, cut it out and then smooth it out with a file of some sort.


its quite cheap and available from almost all generic hobby shops or a quick gogle should sort you out.

again, quick google turned this up:

http://www.themodelcatalogue.com/shopexd.asp?id=1827

now, 2mm may be a tad thin for a giant sword so you may want to look at 3-5mm thick plasticard since you'll need to file off one side to create the 'blade edge' bit
