Nearing another great dipping fest, I figured I might as well do some more arms for my bugs. I debated this at first, as I had enough to really handle every variation, but just not an excess of them.
What finally pushed me over the top is the new options that Hive Guard have. Mine are all armed with scything talons, and though I think this might still be the best configuration, it would be nice to have other options. So, off to ebay I went, and picked up some rending/crushing claws for them. I wanted to pick up some whip/sword combos as well, but I couldn’t find any sellers that carried them, so I had to do without.
Anywho, while I was at it, I remembered that I seemed to often run out of rending claws/scything talons on my warriors, and I know I don’t have enough guns to outfit every warrior I had, so why not pick up some of those as well (assuming I could get them cheap enough).
So, in total, I managed to snag:
- 3x Pairs of Scything Talons
- 9x Pairs of Rending Claws
- 6x Devourers
- 3x Pairs of Crushing Claws (Hive Guard)
- 3x Pairs of Rending Claws (Hive Guard)
I didn’t quite have enough magnets to do them all up (I was surprised at just how many magnets I needed), but I managed to use some larger magnets on the guns that allowed me to stretch what I had). In short, they’re all cleaned up, magnetized and ready for primer. I’m also out of small magnets, so I’m going to have to put in another order. I still have time before dipping as well, so I might wind up picking up some more arms (like the whips/swords), but that remains to be seen.
Slowly, but surely, this is coming together.
