Default Praying space marines o.o

Any ideas how i would go about converting a space marine to kneel + praying hands clapped together?
I was thinking obviously kneeling legs from dev. squad but...not too sure about the hands. Any suggestions?

the kneeling legs from the command sprue would work too. maybe use the missile launcher arms, as their palms are splayed out?

You could cut and alter a left bolter arm to look as if its in a praying position as well, but the right arm is going to be the chore. You would probably have to either green stuff the hand, or find a hand from another army (IG probably) that you could put on your SM's arm at the wrist and even then you may not find one that matches well. Definately a pretty difficult conversion unless someone can think of some old model that has a right hand that is open and flat. The arm wouldn't be too bad to cut and twist to your needs though.

The gunner arms from the vehicle sprues are in about the right positions.
The right hand might be a tricky as the only open palm ones that spring to mind are all left.

Nice idea though, let us see how you get on.

Just use the missile launcher's hand but cut the thumb off and stick it the other side.
