    I'm thinking about putting the head from the top-knot Ghulam onto a spare Druze body to make an Arslan. I have a Red Veil box I put together a while ago, but I can't remember if that model has the head as a separate piece or if it was cast as part of the body. Before I do anything rash, can someone please remind me if I'll need to cut things apart with tools?

    The head was part of the body but should be simple with a razor saw.
    My WIP Arslan is a little complicated, using the multi sniper nomad grenzer, shortening the barrel of the gun and making a new muzzle break sculpting druze like armour over his knees shoulders and chest then using the corn rows and goatee aguicales head filling in the cornrows and adding a top knot.

    Thanks. I’m ok with doing some cutting, just so long as I know that’s what I’m getting into in advance.

    Currently leaning towards the old sculpt with a CCW. That kind of pose is easy to pick out as a "leader" model.

    I thought about using Jethro, But I ended up headswaping him with the hacker head to make the druze sniper. Arslan currently isn't making it into any of my lists but i want to get a model for him up at some point.

    Putting the left over Druze helmet onto Jethro isn't a terrible idea. I'm currently using Knauf as my Druze sniper because 1. it amuses me and 2. I already had the model.

    Then you will just need to convert a spitfire, which isn't too hard these days.

    What do you mean? Druze don't have a Spitfire option anymore these days.

    Yeah, I'm still contemplating what, if any, gun swap to do.

    @theGricks made the conversion that you're thinking about:

    :)

    And it looks cool. That DRuze definitely has the boss vibe ;)
    There's sure some cutting to do, but it's worth the effort.

    I myself went for a bit different head swap with some gun changing too ;)

    Yes, I definitely looked at both of those images when I was deciding what approach to take! I think both yours and the other look good.
