Weapon conversions to protect NL eyes, your tips?

Greetings Brothers (and Sisters),

 

I thought it would be interesting to discuss things you have done or can do to the minis to fit the lore of bright lights hurt Night Lord eyes. In the Past I have done a simple plastic card metal coverings or justified you can make different coloured flames using different chemicals but I wanted more character on some minis.

 

So here is my simple suggestion,  inverting a Primaris Inceptors gun shield on a Melta gun gives a mini Breacher like quality. It leaves a gun sight or aiming the weapon but would primarily block out most of the light produced by the weapon. (Orginally I was looking at the Inceptors wielding helmet before deciding it didn't suit the Legion look).

I plan on adding some stretched skin over a plasma pistol and making it look like its burning the skin underneath but im interested to see what ideas you guys have made to fit this lore?

Auto-senses or not, I like this idea. Take that creativity and run with it, I say!

 

Suggestion: helmets with no eye lenses at all and (maybe) embellished elements for aural sensors, which could jive well with the bat aesthetic that we commonly see. The idea could be that some warriors suffer particularly acutely and learn to rely on other senses than sight (blind warrior trope go!).

Oh now thats an interesting idea, extra eye wear I felt was clunky but a unique helm design for echo location type look has potential.

I believe it was in Augustus’ WIP thread a while back, he had added some green stuff patchwork flayed skin to cover the headlights of his Land Raider.

 

I don’t know what your GS skills are like, but I think a flayed face covering the helmet would be suitably terrifying on a NL

@Greenz Yeah Augustus has loads of cool little bits like that, if I break out to vehicles I will borrow some ideas. I've done cracked glass and painted as if they are turned off.

 

@TC those are great loads of personality.
