Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight

Sometimes I look at a sprue and a weird idea for a conversion will come to mind; that's how this one came about. Simply put I'm using a knife to make a gun. Ridges on the bottom of the big Catachan knife just struck me as reminiscent of the grips on the hand guard of an assault rifle.

I cut the barrels off of a Catachan las-carbine, then cut the blade to a nice rectangle. Then mash everything back together. Add a scope from your bits box, and there you are.

Hmmm... now maybe Marbo's Pistol?

This is brilliant! Respects, man. I will steal the idea for sure :-)

That's a great way to fashion up some quick and dirty sniper rifles, especially if you have some spare space marine bolter scopes lying around - nice work!

What a great tip, absolutely simple and so effective at changing the entire look of the model.
Excellent stuff.
