Im new to Warhammer 40000 but ive been building my guard army for a while. and i had a question
do most people buy there special weapons from the blister packs. becuse ive had alot of success converting my flamer/lasguns into plasma guns. and such and such. is that what the majority of players do to save money
I must admit, i'm with Andusciassus on this one. I tend to convert all of my special weapon troopers - mainly because I don't really like the metal blister pack models. They're too static, and not quite the same size as the others either.
It also helps that I use a lot (LOT) of servitors in my army as normal guardsmen, so a few of these are easily converted up to carry flamers/plasmaguns etc...
I feel sorry for servitor upon whom I gifted a plasmagun as his arm - no throwing away of an overheating gun for you buddy!
Not that I should worry, as the dude's already been lobotomised anyway, I guess...could be a blessing!
"Pickles, the drummer, doodily doo. (Ding-dong, doodily, doodily, doo.)"
Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
I buy bits but I tend to trade bits with friends whenever possible.
What do you call a lasgun with a laser sight?
I bought myself a load of SM plasmas and meltas at Battlewagon Bits when it still existed and used the plasmas with the left arm of the flamer or grande launcher. The weapons are a bit ungainly but then they also pack a lot of bunch and it's not though as my troopers carry around a lascannon ;-)
Have a look, unfortunately no other picture(s) at hand:
And then, apart from flamers who need the tank, I don't like the idea of my troops trying to do their job effectively under field conditions while being cabled to their backpack.
Stupid nonsense. I mean come on, SM plasma and melter don't have a backpack either and work just as well.
I just convert my flame throwers into whatever i need my friends dont care and its not like im going into any tournaments
besides i needed 8 plasma guns for my list and i AM NOT spending 80$ to get 8 melta guns that i dont even need... wouldint it just be easier for GW to sell a blister of 2 meltas and a seperate blister of 2 plasmas?
