Ive been searching online for shotgun bits and i have only been able to find bits for space marines. does the imperial guard have shotgun bits? if so what box set or blister do they come in? in the mean time i got a few sm ones that im just gonna craft on to some cadians. any ideas?
Forge World has a Veterans with Combat Shotguns kit. Don't recall if it's a conversion kit or stand-alone, but I think you'll need torsos and legs of normal guardsman to use it (it's just heads, weapons, and accessories IIRC).
Darguth is right, but the scout shotguns work just fine too.
Not sure if it still exists but there was the old Necromunda Weapon sprue that had shotguns on there. Thats a good source of shotguns and such.
Thats what i'm using for mine anyway.
I can't find it on the GW site
Me either actually lol, Ok maybe they're not for sale anymore. It was a long time since i bought the box load of them anyway.
But i assure you they're brilliant
Forge World are probably the best bet then or you can use the Space Marine Scout boxed Set.
somewhere on the net is information to carve shotguns out of lasguns. do a goodle search for warhammer 40k imperial guard shotguns or homemade warhammer 40k shotguns. i cant remember the name of my search but i did find it. when their is a will, their is a way.
I am an Indestructible master of War.
I made shotguns bt taking off the power packs, shaving the top flat, doing the same to a spare lasgun and cutting it halfway along, sticking it upside down on the first. Then cut the muzzles so they are flat and flush.
My take on them is a bit easier (though less truly shotgun-esque)
I cut off the laser end of the barrel leaving the stub there, shorten the power pack by ~1mm, remove the bayonet mount and then gently carve off the aquilla (eagle insignia) from the face of the gun. This differentiates it enough for me and doesn't require any extra parts.
I did something similar. I removed the power pack as well as the front half of the ammo section, the enire sight thing on the top, as well as the cowl on the muzzle. The result is a somewhat crude approximation of something that looks like a shotgun.
