Blunderbuss conversion ideaBLOOD AXE 11-05-2007

Greetings Evil kin! Happy

I was experimenting a little the other day, thinking of converting "regular" Dwarf Thunderers into Chaos Dwarf Blunderbusses.

1) Take the Dwarf handgun & the Thunderer buckler(small shield).
2) Trim the rune off the buckler a little to make a smooth surface.
3) Glue the flat end to the barrel of the handgun.
4) Put a small amount of greenstuff under the bucker & smoothe the gun barrel into a cone shape.

The concave/inside of the buckler makes a great blunderbuss barrel. It also keeps all your guns to a uniform shape. Looks pretty good painted up. Unfortunately I don't have a digital camera right now. But its simple, try it yourself!

Cheers!
Cheers!


Big hats!

The ends of horns or trumpets make good blunderbuss muzzles also.

Of course it's a brilliant idea to make good use of all the parts in the thunderers box - and I am quite happy to have done just that when I made my Blunderbussiers...

Have a look at the wiki here: Chaos Dwarf Blunderbuss Conversions


There's a lot more in the wiki than you think, check out the wiki contents

Ok, well I didnt know it was an old idea. I am new to CD, but not Dwarves.
Ishkur-How did you make those big hats(helmets)?? FANTASTIC!!!
My converting/sculpting skills are limited. I gotta look around and find some ideas on my skill level.


Big hats!

RE: Blunderbuss conversion ideaServant of Chaos 11-07-2007

I have an idea that I'm using for my Cd blunderbusses. It's a little unconventional, and I've never seen it done before, but I noticed that the quarreler hafts without the crosspiece bow looks superisingly like a shotgun. Making the connection, I'm using just the hafts of the crossbows with an ammo cartridge in the top. It is pretty easy to do, and it looks good too.

Sorry Ishkur, my camera currently isn't working, so I won't be able to post pictures until at least tomarrow. Hopefully I can get it working soon enough to get some good pics on here!

I'm still not sure on how to do the end of my blunderbusses, but the guns will be based on an M79 Grenade Launcher.

Think I've already welcomed you, but welcome.

Wow, I realize im probably the only person stupid enough to have to ask this, but I can't figure out how to post a picture from my pics file. So before I can show you my pics, how do I input these pictures into my post.

Ok, thanks Grimstone.
Here are my pics, enjoy.
   
As you can see I had to cut into the barrel and insert the ammo cartridge. But other than that there is very little work involved.
   
This is one that is reloading. I don't have a base for him yet.

Thanks I realized after I glued the arms on that sculpting the beards is going to be really difficult. I have to manuver the gs under the gun and sculpt from their. It would have been much easier for me to sculpt the beards first. Ah well...
