Loose Musician Instruments?

Post  nathanr on Mon Mar 24, 2014 9:38 am

With Carson going all hardcore on the whole WYSIWYG for command models I'd like to make sure I have my musicians represented but I don't like the look of a guy going into the frontline of a battle with a trumpet instead of a weapon in his hand. Instead I want to have the horn tucked away or slung over a shoulder or something. Does anyone know of any kits that have what I'm looking for or am I going to have to try to convert it?

Shouldn't be too difficult to find a horn from various kits and shave off any hand holding them. What race are you looking for?

I was thinking for my Dark Elves and yes, I could cut off the hand. I've done that on occasion but I find it wrecks the geometry of the instrument and doesn't quite look right. I suppose I should just suck it up and quit being a perfectionist on this. I can always hide it behind the cloaks or otherwise camouflage the imperfections.

Ogres have a horn that gets stapped to thier belt. Maybe a bit big, but more appropriate than the trumpet that comes with Empire troops.

I'll look through my bits. Something slaaneshy or daemonic could work?

I probably have some spare instruments from the Mantic elf sprues, which aren't held in a hand:


How many are you looking for?

I have 8 units that need musicians (2 cold one knight units and 6 dark rider units). I probably would only need 2 horns for the cold one knights since the dark riders have the long cloaks to cover up any imperfections created by cutting off the hands from the horn bits.
