    Making Noise Marines

    Aside from ordering a box of Noise Marines (my local shop doesn't carry them) what are your suggestions on tooling a squad of Noise Marines with sonic blasters? What would you use for the blasters if you didn't send for them specifically?

    I remember a thousand years ago they carried guitars...and to be honest, if GW sold guitars - I would buy them in a heartbeat.

    Scratch-built guitars wouldn't be too hard to make...

    tiny tiny strainer things and guitar wire would also work quite nicely I think.

    I have very simple sonic blasters on my noise marines converted from boltguns, i just cut the barrell off the boltgun and then glued a block of plastic onto it to make the barrel longer. I then cut up some headphones wire to attach from the gun to his backpack.

    Looks half decent for no cost at all, i converted a squad of 8 blasters in 30 mins this way.

    My noise marines' blasters were made from boltguns with the barrels replaced by the little daemon heads from the chaos vehicle accessory sprue.

    There was an awesome thread in bolter and chainsword where a guy had made a heavy metal loving Noise Marine army, where they all had guitars as sonic blasters, the chaos spawn was a Giant speaker cabinet, the rhino's all had tour dates written on the side, and one asiring champion with a powerfist was making the \m/ horns.

    it might be worth looking at

    I decided that while I look for a way to make some chaosy guitars, I'd use the dragon/daemon heads from the rhino pack and convert bolters with them for sonic blasters. Then for the Blastmaster, I'm going to use a Havoc body with an autocannon. I shaved off the end of the AC, and am going to style a havoc launcher to the front of it, fitted with a dirge caster at the front.

    Not like its shown in the book, but I bet it'll be much more fun to look at!
