    Can I give my JO a lasgun????

    Now, in the codex it states that all officers are armed with a laspistol and CCW. However, in the armoury, it does not list the lasgun as a weapon. For fluff reasons, and to keep shooting simple, my platoon command squad are all armed with lasguns, including the officer.

    Is this legal??????? My last opponent said nothing about it, but i just want to make sure........

    Nope, you can't. Closest thing you can do is give him a shotgun.

    For the longest time you could indeed give your officers a lasgun. But with the release of the most recent Guard codex, they removed that option.

    As for reasons why, I don't know how to answer you there, but indeed the closest weapon you could give him to match it is a shotgun, a bolter, or storm-bolter. Other than that I'd just go with the traditional plasma pistol and power weapon.

    If your JOs squad will be static, just give him a Bolter.

    If your JOs squad will be moving, he needs to have Assault shooting, so as Madman points out, a Storm Bolter is usefeul. The alternative to this would be, if you are giving him a Power Weapon, then keep his Laspistol.

    Ask your local SMurf players, as they're bound to have a few spare Bolters hanging about.

    Although this talk is about the Junior Officers, I wonder why are Veterans in Command Squads and Platoons not allowed to take Hellguns. I mean, they do get Bolters and Bolt Pistols but I believe that adding Hellguns and Hellpistols to their choices would be fair, since in a way would make it easy to acquire cool Kasrkin-like miniatures to accompany our Officers in the field...

    On the other hand, you could tell me that fluff-wise the 'Hellweapon' is a Stormtrooper only item...bah!

    Yeah, and fluffwise a storm bolter is SM only, a guardsman firing it would break his arms.

    Huge looking Bolter

    Hehehe, I modelled on the bolter last night. It looks incredibly funny. The bolter is half the size of the JO!!

    I did it by cutting off the lasgun, but I left the stock of the lasgun. It is a very big gun with a small stock, but without it, I reckon the JO wont have any shoulders left.

    I still can't get over the funny looking JO. Big arse gun, little JO. Looks hilarious.

    Thanks for all your help guys!!!!
