I think the Berzerker kit is scaled too small.  You get stumpy arms.  Plus the old kit only has enough axes to actually build 6 bodies so it's not only not great visually but it doesn't really save you money.  Unless you only want to use GW plastic, I don't think it's a great option.  But that's just my opinion, I'm sure some others don't mind.

Just a word of warning with Shapeways chainaxes - I found that after several months, mine have gone "sparkly", and this was even visible through primer. It was quite bizarre.

 

I've moved onto using Conversion World chainaxes, which look better to me anyway IMHO.

 

What does "all sparkly" mean? I am thinking about buying a bunch of Shapeway axes because I hate working with the Forgeworld axes I've got and they keep breaking off.

As in, it looked like they were rolled in glitter.

 

Maybe I got a bad batch, maybe it's to do with the heat here, but that was my experience. They also had very visible layers from the printing process.

 

The Conversion World axes are nothing like Forgeworld or Finecast. My experience was that the detail was crisp, there were no bubbles, and no mould lines at all. Just one bit of the resin gate at the bottom, which was very easy to clean off. I do recommend pinning them into the hands that hold them (I used a 0.8mm drill bit).

Finished up the squad, super happy with them!

Here is a pic showing the chainaxe bit better.  There are definite printing lines and the bit itself isn't very sharp, but after i slapped paint on it i was still pretty happy with the purchase.  I'd give Conversion World a shot next time.  I do like them a lot more than the forge world bits though.

Hi just to chip in with a few quick questions for those that have already done this.

I have about 30 old badly painted berserkers in storage at my folks house. I've planned to renew them for years and looking to build 2 units of 8 for fluff and practicality reasons!

I've got a set of the ten shadowspear CSMs and also about 5 spare heads from the skullcrushers set.

1. If I buy a box of the blood warriors, I presume the heads are comparable size to the skullcrusher ones?

2. What would be the best legs to put on some of the blood warrior torsos to make up the other 6? Should I just try to source a few new CSM legs?

3. I reckon I've got almost enough chain axes on my old berserkers. Will they look bad alongside the Forgeworld ones? Or the new sculpts? I seem to remember them being pretty chunky? I can cut them off at the hand if needed.

1: They're the same size

2: Mark III legs work for me, imo.

3: It's mainly the hand/arm being chunky. The axes themselves are fine.

The blood warrior torsos lack abdomens, luckily most of the new csms have the abdomens attached to the legs, with separate bits for the chest plate. So just replace the front chest plate with blood warrior chests, minor green stuff work required.

And yeah, blood warrior heads work great for this:)

Not quite, the new CSM kit is a mix of single legs with matching torso/single leg combos.  ie, one bit is the torso plus one leg, another bit is the matching other leg.  One or two of the sculpts have both legs as one bit with a matching torso, sans legs, bit.  Its super different from the primaris kits with the totally separate torso and legs.  I can take a couple pics of the assembly book if that would be helpful.
