Ok for the longest time i have wanted to have a Lord on Juggernaut but every time i keep thinking a waste points it might be and i would prefure a T-armour guy or normal foot lord with daemon weapon, however i got to thinking about a Khorne Lord with twin Lightning claws on one in a unit of Beserkers. This would give him 6 attacks on tha charge, hitting most enemys on a 3+ and wounding on a 2/3+ with re-rolls. Thats quite deadly and no lisk (of my weapons attackign me that is). However converting might be a bitch. There is a real lack of Chaos Lightning claws about.
I was wondering n how would best to convert them. My thoguhts turn to a plastic Juggernaut with the arms of this Chaos Lord with jump pack as they are the only Chaos L-claws i cna find. I would then maybe take 1 Khorne Beserker or maybe the metal Jugganaut's riger as my bace. I wondering if there migth be an easier way? I have been wanteidn to do this for a while and sicne i'm not gettign much next month's wage bracket (just a Forge World Medusa and Thousand Sons rhino parts) i thought now might be a good time to try my hand at a propper conversion. what do you guys think?

P.S. I'm sorry for the bad pun of a tital.......and my spelling but that should came as a given with me.

Look at WOC from the Fantasy range. They have some absolutely sick juggernaughts so it doesnt look like shit... no offence. As for the lightning claws, use marine ones cuz they are easier to find and then just GS some chaosy shiz upon them

what about using the lightening claws from the chaos terminator kit, just abit of converting and they should work

That, don't even really need to convert much, cutting the wires off will make enough room for the shoulder pads.

And those are plastic, nice for conversions.
Although might wanna get one individually from a bits site, because 3 is a bit much for 1 conversion.

You could always try to chaot-isice Canis Wolfborn- he already looks wild, has skulls and bones on him and has a pair of Lightning Claws already. Otherwise, the WFB Chaos Lord on Jugger is harsh. For Claws you could maybe get some from the loyalist Assault Termie sprue.

i would get the Plastic juggernaut form a bits site (Bits and kits would be the best) but none of them seem to have the Blood Crushers at all.
I'm also worryed about the conversion work for the claws as the Terminator size claws will involve alot more work....however there is a kid at my local who "streatched" his shoulder pads with tweesers over T-armour thunder hammers to make a normal captain with TH/SS.
My other worry is the lower torso as i could get the bloodleater but whould too too daemonic and lest Chaos marine like. Also i'm worried about how they nwould match up?
Normal iu would see what works from trial and error but since it ill cost me a fortune if i do that i should keep too asking you guys first as small orders would be needed.
(I cna also use this time for gettign thoses marine shoulder pads and back packs i need to finish my Death Company)

Unhappily his legs are cast on to the Thunderwolf so not a viable option but his L Claws could be used if you can find them.

Chaos Biker legs are a possibility and the shoulders on Termi claws can be filed to fit in a CSM Shoulder pad pretty easily.

Thats great. so here is a list of what i need to get then.

Juggernaut - Plastic one form a bits site
Lower torso - Chaos Biker (nice and cheap and could be good for parts too)
Upper Torso - ???????
Head - ????????
Arms - Lord Lightning claws (I think i still have the once i didn't use so wher ar ein the moeny here)
Shoudler Pads - ???????
Back Pack - ???????

So i still need a Torso, Head, Back pack and Shoudler pads. I was thinking a beserker head form a Beserks kit as well as a torso, Back pack and 1 shoulder pad. I sould get5 a vanilia one from the bike that i need to get

im in the middle of doing a chaos lord on jugger as well, i had a look at the biker legs, but there too close together to fit over the juggers spin, so im kit bashing a rider out of some old metal CSM, useing the legs from a standing csm, and the top from an old berzerker champion. just need to sort out a combie weapon now if i can.
the metal legs was ideal, as i was alble to open the legs wider to sit on the jugger.

Why not green stuff a platform that a model can stand on and drape a green stuff leash from one of the claws to the jugger.

When I mentioned Canis, I actually meant using the Thunderwolf he is sitting on as a counts-as Jugger. I'm sure some armour plates, skulls, weapons etc and an interesting paint job would do the trick. It's what I'd do, but I'm lazy and happy to take the easy way out!

sounds like me. But for once i want to put some effort into this. I will probbly get the Biker anyway ans see how much of a match it is or isn't. if it doesn't wok then i might do some jiggery pokery and take it down to my local for some one to one help with soem green stuff with the manager there.

I think that is what i might well and it will save me from getting a bike to carve up and less money the better.
So here is the list now.

Juggernaut - Plastic one form a bits site (Eaither from "Let the dice deside" or from Ebay as they are all i can find who have it)
Lower torso - Beserker Running legs (may need another part of the legs like a normal one to make sure it fits well)
Upper Torso - Beserker Torso (any)
Head - Beserker Head (almsot any)
Arms - Lord Lightning claws (Got them all ready)
Shoudler Pads - Beserker Pad AND an undevided pad (i have one of them)
Back Pack - Beserker Back pack
Melta Bomb - Assaualt squad melta bomb (i have 3 of them!!!)
