Mark of the Wulfen conversion

I wanted to convey the part about using "claws and teeth in close combat" specifically claws. I found a perfect claw from the old space hulk, plastic genestealers models. With the expansions, I have a ton of these old genestealers still on the sprue. Converting the model was a simple mater of cutting the Space Wolf hand off, and replacing with the genestealer hand. the genestealer hand just needed to be trimmed up a bit around the wrist. I love the pose of the outstretched fingers ready to "render" some flesh.

Dude, Skyclaw Mark of the Wulfen... with a delicious Wolf Priest.
3+d6 Rending attacks on the charge with Preferred Enemy.. You could have NINE attacks with this guy and anything that's not a 4 gets to be rerolled and hopefully become a 6 to rend some face.

Funnily enough I made that very conversion just a few weeks ago, those genestealer hands work really well to convey a suitably sized claw

Did you just use these type hands?

They don't look nearly as cool to me as the one in the pic.

@ Student Teacher: Your link is for arms from the new Genestealers. This hand is from the old Space Hulk 2nd (?) edition Genestealers, around mid-90s.

The ones I used were actually from the First Edition of Space Hulk. The plastic Genestealers only came in one pose. Each model has 4 arms, 2, five fingered hands like the one in the picture and 2 huge three fingered claws.

Sometimes, the simple conversions are the best :D

I was planning to use the current genestealer "hands", and greenstuff some fur on them.

Since I'm using the "wolf" helmet for my special weapon holders, I'm going for the heads with the widest mouths and hopefuly alot of hair ...

Going for the dripping blood too ;D

I don't have easy access to any of those type genestealer hands. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could use instead? BTW great conversion, simple but looks fantastic!

lol, that's one way to go, but I was thinking hands, do you think ghoul hands would work?
