Every mech list I see seemingly has multiple Vet squads with a Chim and 3 meltas, and they have like 15 meltas in their list. Where do people get these things? I just buy the basic infantry boxes from the store and so I don't get any there, nor do I have anyone to trade with to obtain meltas. The only idea I could think of was to take flamers and convert them by cutting off the back part as well the flame tip to make it look more fairly close to a melta gun. For a poor student who can't afford to buy $12 boxes with one plasma gunner and one melta gunner, what do people do to obtain so many meltas?
Not sure how some people did it, but the GW online store has 5-packs of melta guns for $6.60 USD, would be a lot cheaper for you.
Take a flamer, cut off te flame nozzle, add a bit of round plastic you've drilled holes in, rock 'n roll!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

What I did was purchased the metal melta guns blister (5 per package) and taken the grenade launcher arms that are more numerous in the guards box set. In the 10 man box sest you get 2 launchers. Or you can get the granade launcher arms from bits store cheaply.
Anywho, I cut the hand off the grenade launcher arm and glue the melta gun in its place as there is a hand on the melta guns. It looks like the guard is wearing a no slip glove or a no heat glove as I imagine the gun getting warm when it fires.
Also note that the 12 dollars blister is a lot cheaper than the 35 dollars command squad that give you the melta and plasma guns as well as the rest of the squad you may or may not need.

Where the heck did all them guardsmen come from?
Great Wolf! Is that the howl of the 13th?
Personally I constantly check ebay for deals and then place orders to GW directly for the 5 pack of meltas. I've slowly put together what I've needed over the last couple months.

1. Cut flame nozzle off of flamer
2. Cut barrel off of grenade launcher
3. Attach barrel of grenade launcher to the body of the flamer.

I actually just did what Grey suggested, and personally I think it looks alot better than the actual melta gun model. It looks like it has more range and punch.
That's the downside of forums. Everything tends to gravitate towards a group opinion after a while, but every group opinion starts as an individual's opinion. No offence to BoxANT of course, I'm sure he's a more experienced Guard general than I am
On topic, I got a few for free from a SM player friend. If you ask your mates they might be able to give them to you (or sell them if they are tightwads!)
Guilty, but only because I care about my fellow Guardsmen
Take a squad of Vets, give them 3 meltaguns (made by cutting the nozzles off of a flamer and attaching the barrel of a GL), stick them in a Chimera with a hull Heavy Flamer, and go out there and WIN!
