    CSM troop sprues

    Hey, quick question... do the CSM troops in the boxes come with melta gun sprues? I don't really know what a melta looks like it but I don't see it on the sprue with the HB and plasma guns.

    If they don't, where exactly do you get them from?

    Melta guns.. they don't come with the sprues..

    There's several options to get them:

    Loyalist sprues, command sprue conversions, the iron warriors model, buying Bike weapons and converting bolters.

    As for what they look like... er..

    No, there are no melta-guns included in the CSM sprues.

    One of my friends used the daemon heads from the tank sprues (the smaller ones) and attached them to the ends of bolters (removing the amo feeds and nozzels on the end of the guns). It looked decent, and definatly chaosy!

    Hope this helps!

    well

    That seems awfully silly... you can use a melta gun but don't receive any bits! Can anyone suggest any neat looking mods so I can scratch build them?

    Otherwise, how do you guys figure ordering the raptor assault weapon metal bit sprue would work? I assume they are the same size weapons... and you get 1 flamer, 1 melta, and 1 plasma for only $2. BWB is more expensive with the shipping... i just hate mixing metal and plastic models because its such a pain.

    Well, if you can come up with any better options I would love to hear them.

    just mailorder the IW meltagun, you can find it on the online store or get a box of SM that'll provide you with all the special weapons.

    hm

    I looked at the Space Marine tac box... it only has 1 melta gun in it. I found the IW Melta Gun but it costs $2... the same as the raptor gun sprue which comes with the flamer plasma and melta. I'm all about saving money, and unless the IW Melta fits better or something it looks to me like raptor guns are the way to go.

    Can anyone with a box of raptors (my aren't opened yet!) tell me if the guns would fit in CSM bolter hands?

    I already made a suggestion, but I would like to also add that there was a cylindrical tube placed alongside the bolter to add for detail. I think that some plastic tubing would work fine.

    If you already have tank sprues, this conversion will cost nothing!

    The weapons in the raptor box do fit the chaos marines. But im pretty sure that the left hand is already attached to the gun so you just need to chop off the hand that usualy holds the front of the gun. I used their plasma gun on my normal marines and i gave my friend the flamer to use with his space wolves and they all fit perfectly fine.

    Chaos Bike mounted weapons.

    They're much cheaper than anything else, and don't require much conversion.

    I like Blood_blade's idea though - imaginative.

    You can go to battlewagon bits (bwbits.com). They sell the loyalist melta gun for $1.99, plus $3.00 shipping. It's not worth it if you're only going to purchase a couple of things, due to shipping.
