    Hi there, just getting into the game the last couple of months and I decided I ought to get on the forums because uh...I have questions. So. Many. Fricken'. Questions.

    But I'm going to start out with something inane instead.

    Has anyone tried kitbashing a Krit Kokram model with feuerbach? I know Krit is kinda rubbish for cost/benefit fail reasons, but also a) I own one already and b) I love the look of the feuerbach, which it looks like I can only use in a YJ list with Krit anyway.

    Right now I'm considering yoinking the weapon from a Teucer model since I can get one for like ten bucks online. Does anyone have any experience trying this goofy modeling project, or any advice for me before I get started?

    Thanks!

    I haven't tried this particular insane modeling project, but I have done a few of my own over the years.

    Here are the models you're looking at:

    You're doing yourself a favor based on the fact that both models have an extended left arm - it seems like it's probably possible to do some surgery there to move the feuerbach into a broadly reasonable position. You'll have to watch the angles, though, or the butt of it will intersect his face.

    As always, I'll recommend you get a jeweler's saw if you don't already have one - in my experience, it makes jobs like this much more manageable.

    It seems to me that you could cut the Feuer at the wrist and remove Krits hand completely to slap it there. As long as you can remove the weapon from the shoulder cleanly you should be fine.

    Good luck with that, share pics of your project please!

    My worry is that Krit's backpack might get in the way preventing the weapon from sitting in a position that keeps his head looking down the sights.

    It might be possible to replace his heavy pistol in his lowered (right) hand though.

    Thanks, that's helpful in planning! I ordered the stuff I need (including jeweler's saw, thanks for the tip) and now I'm just waiting on Teucer to show up in my mailbox Soon(TM). If I can pull it off I'll definitely share some photos of the process. If it's a hot mess...I'll explain why and publicly admit defeat. :)

    I'd definitely consider putting the feuerbach in his downward facing arm (so switching arms from the Teucer one) as the extension on Krit's other arm is likely to make the weight distribution of the weapon look really odd. The only other way around that would be more complex remodelling of the weapon itself to chop out some barrel length or the like to shift the centre of mass further back.

    I can't find it in the store but the Azra'il Feuerbach might be pretty good. There's a smaller amount to cut.

    Azra'il went out of production last year so isn't available from CB, still a few out there in various webstores and on the 2nd hand market though.

    You might also consider the older, N2 sculpt of the Azra’il feuerbach. It’s a similar shape, but a smaller scale that might fit Krit’s size better.

    The hand hold positions on the Azra'il are nothing like the arm/hand positions on Krit which would make that a much more complex modelling task.

    Very true; his pose makes actually wielding the weapon a difficult conversion at best. I see the Azra’il feuerbach being slung/otherwise-attached-in-a-sci-fi-way to Krit’s back.
