This guy is great. I bought a Krieger "Krash" Thrax model for Inquisitor and used all the bitz in different conversions. This guy gets the left arm. Just needed a little sculpting: a mount for the warpfire thrower, some hair at the neck, and the tubes connecting the mechanical arm to the body. This guy may yet get a warpfire tank and warpgoggles. I was getting tired of using the Vermin Lord tail on all my conversions; I know that rat tails all look generally the same, but as a converter it gets boring. I have no idea what bit this tail started as, I think maybe a Tyranid bit, but it's a rat's tail now!
