The Tyrants Lightning Claws

I did a little job converting the rather stylish Lightning Claw on Forgeworlds Huron model a few weeks ago. Because there is only one right hand claw making a pair requires conversion from right to left. I also replaced the actual claws with plastic ones as the resin ones were too deformed for my tastes and too delicate to repair.

To do this I chopped up an original claw, separating all the fingers and thumb and rebuilding the palm attaching the fingers again in reverse of their original order.


I was a big fan of this claw when I first saw it on the Forgeworld website as I don’t really like any of the other existing lightning claws but I have to admit they aren’t really as cool looking as they could be. At some point I’m going to make my own lightning claws based on Horus’ claw in the art of FFG Horus Heresy boardgame. EDIT: Now this is what I call a claw!

    Is it totally out of the question to get a cast of these beauties? I could do a killer Blood Angel flavored count-as Shrike model. Also I was wondering how much it would cost me for you to do similar treatment the the powerfist in the Blood Angel Sanguinary Guard box, you know make a matching lefty? Could use those for a Calgar count as too :P
    Thanks for your time and all the great work you do! You really are a inspiration.

      Unfortunately I no longer have these, so casting them is not possible. A small consolation might be that I hope to make some kick ass lightning claws (sorry…mechanical talons) of my own in january.

        I will wait for to see how those turn out then. I saw someone use this claw on a standard sized marine on dakka dakka and it looked completely absurd, so my idea wouldnt have worked anyway unless I scaled him up a bit.
