    What do people do to obtain/make numerous plasma guns?

    First off I hope nobody is offended as to how similiar this thread is to TheoryCraft's. Next everthing applies as to what he said except about Plasma Guns. I have nobody to trade with and if it's possible it'd be really helpful if some of you could post pics of your converted plasmas.

    An easy method is to cut the muzzle/flash-hider off a troop’s lasgun and glue the front of a plasma pistol to the end of the furniture. In my mind, this looks ugly as sin, but with a bit of care and modification such as cutting off the lasgun powerpack, and adding cable (solder) it may look viable. If you’re in the UK and need a plasma pistol or two to try this out, drop me a PM and I’ll send you a couple gratis.

    You can order 5 plasma guns from GW for only $6.60 from their website:

    Steal them from my tactical squad sprues and replace grenade launchers with them.

    In a box of Assault Marines you get 5 plasma pistols.

    Cut off the nozzle of your good ol' IG Flamer and glue on the head of a Plasma pistol

    I'm sure you can get some from your local SM players.

    I used assault marine plasma pistols on catachans and they look about the right size.
    Hopefully they will work for Cadians as well, that is where I will be getting mine.

    The new command squad boxes come with a plasma pistol and gun. Better than before anyway.

    best bang for your buck is gonna be the 5 pack bitz blisters from GWS (either plasma or melta) linked by jy2 previously. using a grenade launcher arm set, if you cut it off at the hand, the metal weapon will glue right on in it's place (both types have a hand on the grip already).

    the left arm with the handle will connect up just like it does on the grenade launcher. It looks exactly like the set up in the new command squad for plasma or melta.

    Thanks for all the advice, I'll probably be going with the 5 bit plasmas from GW. Don't think the SM players I know would have them. Was wondering if it were possible to somehow convert the plasma guns with only IG bits?

    I use GS over a lasgun and add a backpack with a wire to it. It looks okay if you paint it to look different from a lasgun.
