(This is stolen from DakkaDakka but it didn't have a name on it to contact the person so if this is yours let me know and ill credit it to you or take it down at your request.)

This is a very easy converstion, and will allow you to make some spare pistols for your Squad!

If you are an Eldar player that has been collecting for a while you will probably end up with some spare catapults from the guardian or dire avenger sprues. These catapults are very easily chopped down to look like a pistol. After all the design is nearly identical, just a smaller version.

So here we have a catapult from the guardian sprue. All you need do is cut along the white lines I've drawn in here, keeping the tip of the barrel and the end of the ammo clip. You then bring them up and attach them making essentially a smaller version.


Here I have the finished product next to an arm from the storm guardian box set. You can see the two are nearly identical.


now i want a tutorial on what to do with the other hand now?

Nice find! Seems to be a VERY simple conversion that would allow the use of current bits. Thanks for sharing...


... your people (Fairy Lovers) should rejoice!
