I've built my 4 astral claws - not up to the conversion standards of many here, but I'm happy with the results.
No names yet - are there any naming conventions (latin names, germanic names, whatever names...) that exist for the claws?
All of them are all parts from the space marine tactical box, except as noted.
The sergeant - right arm and shoulder pad from the old chaos marine box, axe from new chaos marine box.
The plasma gunner - left arm and shoulder pad from old chaos marine box.
The close combat guy - left arm and chainsword, right leg below the knee, combat knife (on belt) and head from old chaos box.
Heavy bolter guy - both arms and heavy bolter, right leg below knee, combat knife and holstered pistol from old chaos box.
Tried giving one a chaos backpack, but it was comically huge in comparison to the loyalist ones, so ended up replacing it.
Repaired the battle damage on the chaos shoulder pad on the sergeant - I want the chaos bits to look like the new ones, not the old ones. Have done some battle damage to the loyalist parts which doesn't really show up in the pics, and will be doing some more.
At the moment they don't look very chaos-y, which I'm not certain if I am happy with. Maybe if I paint the chaos bits red... but that may make them stand out too much. Have to think on that, and/or perhaps adding some chaos trophy spikes.
