I was reading the thread How to Buy Your Guard Army, and in the section about heavy weapon teams it says to pass out the missile launchers amongst your troops, which I thought was a good idea, and still do, only problem is the gun is about 10 percent taller than the model itself, do you all do any converting of the gun before you glue it on or does it look okay otherwise? Do you a guy following him around holding the missile itself, or do you just use a regular lasgun guardsman as a "counts-as"?

Also any other cool conversion ideas, or links to, would be much appreciated!
I have the guy holding the missile launcher with the actual launcher unconverted. I find the kneeling legs particualrly the ones that are more spread out are good for mounting him on, and yes I did convert loaders for my missile launchers and for my mortars.

With true Line of Sight rules, you are better of standing up. It would suck to be behind a barrier you can't see over.
true, but if I remember correctly, there is a rule that if you are standing in base contact with a wall/barrier then you can see over it (even with tlos?). If not, then all my heavy weapon teams are next to useless (they are all kneeling).
It's 28mm from the base - that's where you measure from (Kneeling plasma guns / heavy weapons) and to (posed tyranids "crawling" can go fish)
I'm pretty sure that's printed somewhere... (goes off to rummage around and find where that is)

Isn't there also a rule that either member of the team can fire the weapon? I could be wrong.
You draw line of sight from behind the firers head rather than the base.
And frankly, I would assume that sporting players would grant line of sight from where the models head COULD be if he were standing up.

At least kneeling models are the least of your problems. I have the old Steal Legion Heavy Bolters and those guys are laying down a small stone blocks there TLOS, so I haven't used my Guard since 5th came out but that's more because I started a Chaos army.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
The rulebook was wise to touch this subject. The rules are in the TLOS section and it states along the lines that TLOS is drawn from a normal position. The way I understand that is the LOS is drawn from a normal standing position for kneeling models. If the models are normally this tall then all are that tall despite the way they are modeled.
Where the heck did all them guardsmen come from?
Great Wolf! Is that the howl of the 13th?
