I'm planning on making a Librarian dread for the local Blood Angel player, and I'm looking for a suitably impressive "force sword" that would be in scale with the rest of the dread. I'd prefer plastic, of course, but I can deal with metal.

I've looked at the new plastic Daemon Prince's sword, but that looks a bit TOO corrupted for what I need... And most of the plastic swords in the BA range are much too small- They'd look as if this fellow was bearing a force toothpick in combat...

So... any ideas?

Use a soul grinder sword. The size is right. The hilt and the hand holding it could be altered to be a bit less organic. The blade itself could easily be replaced with plasticard if you want a scimitar or another blade style.

Yes.

Go to the Gw online shop, into the specialist games section, and into the inquisitor section.

Open the imperial section of models, and find Brother Artemis. His sword should be perfect, as I've seen it used in this way before.

or the wraithguard sword, plastic and the rights sort of size
Damn... I fight those pointy-eared gits all the time and forgot the Wraithlord sword. Thanks for the idea!

This would be perfect. Just take off some of the more obviously eldar iconography like the gems. As to the Brother Artemis sword, if you want to go that route, I have a spare you can have gratis.
Might just leave it as the BA DO like their bling, too... :laugh:. Or I could just say it's a trophy from a slain wraithlord. And if I can't pick up a Wraithlord sword in bitz, I'll drop you a PM, KF :victory:.
