i recently converted a couple power fists into some pre-heresy lightning claws. i think they look alright so i thought i'd share. (beforehand i'd like to say sorry for my cruddy photography skills)

stuff you need:
5 combat knives
1 powerfist (one thats not clenched in a fist)

take the combat knives and chop them off where the curvy bit ends

then for the power fist clip off the first part of the thumb and the fingers all the way to the knuckles.

then glue them on and you're done

please go to for pictures: http://www.flickr.co...s/38206935@N06/
(this is my first tutorial. i tried inserting photos and it said that i "wasnt allowed to use that image extention")

Note: as you can see in the pictues, if you have mk 1 combat knives this looks a lot better

I like it. A tad too large maybe but if you cut the blades in half it would look just fine. In my opinion that is ^^

Try uploading your pictures to your own Bolter&Chainsword gallery. Maybe there is a problem with the flickr-pictures.

The helmet needs to be pink. As per the codex astartes. There is no other option, sorry.

that does look nice but one way i like is take a regular power fist then take off the head needles from a kroot and they both mold perfectly to the model and looks extremely deadly
strike quickly and mercilessly let nothing stay your wrath. remember an enemy is more easily defeated if they dont even know they are fighting.

one day a man was in court and the judge deemed him insane, the man responded who are you to call me insane for i have fought in a eight year war, i have faced death gun to gun and seen things that would drive you insane in a moment, in a matter of fact who are you to deem who is insane for only those who survive can deem what is insane, and only the insane can survive... whos really insane

Maybe a bit too long? Anyway, they look badass. Nice work on your first tutorial.
Ah, signatures. What use really is a signature but a form of distacting it's reader so that they do not fully read the posts of the member whose signature is distracting them therefore creating a vicious circle of misunderstanding wherein none have any clue about the subject of which they are reading prompting them to post stupid comments with no reference whatsoever to the original post. Such ignorance should be avoided lest we fall into a period of decay where no good comment can be found. Such an occassion could tear this very forum from it's boundries and ...hang on, get back to reading my post!

used this fantastic tutorial for some of my night lords.
in my humble opinion it looks even better, when used on a powerfist with bent fingers, because the finished lightning claw doesn't look that big in this way.
