Rally easy FE Bulkhead weapon upgrade

Bulkheads ball weapon thing is all well and groovy, but I thought it needed a little something... extra

Battle Chain!

He can even one-hand it and pull a bit of a "Lobo"


It's even easy to do! All you need are a few of these:

Lego chains, you get them with certain sets, but I bought a lot of them last year to make chain weapons for my Junkions, and had a few left over.

For this project I used three, but you can do it with one, or as many as you want!

Use a sharp blade to cut the last link in each chain, and remove the Lego attachment from all but one end, it's a simple job to reattach them into a longer chain, and are still very sturdy, but if you want to put a little dab of glue for extra strength it works.


Take the ball and chain, and attach the Lego port to the peg-end (The other end also works, but I prefer how it looks here)



And hey-presto BALL CHAIN!


The chain threads through the hand hole easily, and it looks good in many poses


Now, to build a nice-looking BIG GUN for him to hold.

That mode still works, this is just an extra bit, which I prefer because... why is it attached to him? It only increases his range a tiny bit... But that's just my opinion, and probably wrong!

I'm glad someone else uses lego chains with their figs. I thought I was the only one for the longest time. I may do this as a rough draft and then get some jewelers chain and mess it up a little just to have a more rusted/robust look to the custom weapon.

Lego chains are REALLY useful! I've not got to repainting yet, but I plan on dipping it into a nice browny orangey blacky wash to muss it up some more,

cool upgrade, makes him more like animated bulkhead, with a ranged weapon--is pretty cool. If only bulkhead were a military vehicle in this show, then i could buy it, but yeah, like someone said, i too prefer the ball in his hand--but this is effing great innvoation and looks awesome too
