    Hey I am just wondering how to model a kai gun. If this is in the wrong section, sorry I was not sure where to put it.

    Anyway it says it is a huge bolter of archaic design.. so my question is how does one model that. Is there a piece, or what. A regular bolter would just be too small. I thought of maybe really converting and autocannon, but I am not sure.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I&#39;ve seen a Kai Gun converted simply to have a model holding an Autocannon in one hand. Looked alright really. You could have it in two hands, but it wouldn&#39;t look too dynamic.

    First use thew search engine. It might find this topic . . . a couple of times.

    Then use a big gun, like the previously mentioned autocannon, or the heavy bolter. Or check out the =][= section online.

    Hmm sorry, I for some reason thought that this would not have been discussed. Just when I thought I had defeated my inner noob it raises its ugly head again. Alright I will search right now.

    Use the chaos heavy bolter held in one hand. It&#39;s got the daemonic muzzle, which would look uber bad @&#036;&#036;.
    It&#39;s not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It&#39;s pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

    I don&#39;t think you need any specific model for the Kai gun. Follow any of the other advices...

    Get the heavy bolter, but put some of the old green stuff to emulate a kind of fleshy exterior, much like the kai-gun held by the Daemon Prince in the picture inside the codex.

    Try vehicle HBs. They&#39;re substantially huger than the HB on the CSM sprue. Try shoulder mounting them and GSing it up. If you use a Pred. Anni w/ Las sponsons, use the HBs from that. Chop off the barrel and add the daemon head thingy. Voila&#33;

    Yes, in an issue of White Dwarf they gave and aspiring champion a Kai gun. It was an autocannon that had most of its barrel cut off, leaving only half a centimetre off the boxy part of the cannon.
