How about the legs from a GW Judge Dredd that was mounted on a Lawmaster?

Perhaps the legs from one for the original GW roughrider models, they might have stirrups but could possibly do?

I've got both of these somewhere is you want to take a look?

Yeah, Scout biker legs are what are used on the regular bikers - but I don't think I have the GS skills to do some convincing coat tails.

GOOD IDEA. I have a random set of the old Attilan legs lying around in my bits box. They'll need some de-furring and de-stirruping, but they might just work. I'll have a go...

Of course you could also have him sitting on his coat tails thus covering them up. Then build up the back of the seat a bit.

AHHHHH! Yes, I've got a few more than that too - saw them at Salute this year and figured they'd make good character models with a bit of converting. The sizes are a bit off (a couple of the models are just way too big to fit in with the Arbites) but most of them are good...

So, updating the shock squad next. I swapped out a lot of models so that the squad only comprised models with 'up' arms - since the models with 'down' arms are more useful for weapon conversions.

I've taken off all the shields for a clean and repaint, and repositioned a lot of the maul arms so they don't all look the same.



This squad will also have two Proctors, as is allowed in the BOLS codex. I've converted them so that one is still obviously the leader, though, with an aquila headdress. They'll both have power mauls instead of shock mauls, converted from plastic power axes.

Thanks - it would be great to know which models you have. I'm not sure how useful any of them are going to be, as I haven't got around to trying to integrate the Mongoose models yet, but if they work, then an option for some more would be lovely..

Mr. S Baldrick wrote:Just wanted to say nice work man - How are you finding the BOLS codex, do you find it more fun then the WH or IG book?


I'm not sure about more competitive than the IG book, but it's certainly more fun, and plays more like a 'real' Arbites army. I've not done too well with it so far, but then I have yet to build and paint some of the stronger options. It does MASSIVELY lack things like Melta, but then I'm sure I can compensate for that elsewhere and make it work.

I've not played it as an IG force since the 5ed Codex was released - I might give it a go, though. I was also considering the possibilty of trying it out as an SM Scout list. Since the removal of Inquisitors and Stormtroopers from the WH Codex, I'm not sure they're an option any more.

inmygravenimage wrote:Looking good, mate. You wanting a DA power maul (or possibly 2?)


What's a DA Maul? Might well be interested, and I promise this time I'll be quicker in sending out your models!! In fact, I'll be in Glasgow from the 7th to the 15th Sept - maybe we could test out the Arbites in a game.....

Miss Dee wrote:How are your Tau doing?


They're on indefinite leave after I completed enough to play a decent size game and promptly got bored of painting yellow. I'll return to them soon though. Probably after this.

Shock Team Completed! I've finally finished my shock team in time for a game this evening. Now starting on the sentinels. This is ten Arbitors from the Necromunda Enforcers range with the standard shock mauls and supression shields.

The BOLS codex allows for two Proctors, so I've made two models with much bulkier Power Mauls (converted from Power Axes). One is the 'lead' proctor, and one his second in command, differentiated by headdress.

Very nice. What are you arming the sentinels with? Multi lasers would give good suppressing fire, but lascannon sentinels are great tank hunters. Any chance of a battle report soon, you guys have the best ones.

We'll try and get a proper one done when I've got a completed army. I think Panic is trying to get enough of his new Dark Eldar together for a force, and then we'll do Dark Eldar vs Arbites...

At the moment, they're armed with Multi-lasers, as it's the best option the BOLS Codex allows, but I'm going to try out the army using IG rules too, so I might magnetise and make some options....
