    Special weapons

    I'm starting a new IG army and i need several plasma guns and meltas for my vets and ccs. The problem is that you have only two very expensive ways to get plasmas and meltas: 1)buying tons of command squad boxes at 22.50 euro each
    2)buying tons of boxes with only one plasma and one melta metal miniatures at 12.50 euro each.
    So my newbie question is: how do you guys manage to get all those spec weapons for all your shooty needs without having to sell your own home to afford them?

    Also I think you can get them from the GW site in packs of like 10 metal guns.

    ah yes i've seen those metal weapons and they seem quite cheap too...but aren't they for SM? Do you think it's possible to convert them for IG? Does anyone of you guys ever tried it?

    I have given several Cadians Boltguns from the Space Marine sprues without having to chop/change/shave/bend/putty at all. The hand grips are in pretty much the same posotion for all SM assault/rapid fire weapons, so this shouldn't be a problem at all for you.

    My 3rd Platoon of guardsmen will have Meltaguns, and I intend to use the SM melta sprue exactly as discussed. The GW site has them for AU $14 for 5.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info guys! I think i'll give it a try, after all they're so cheap that even if i fail to convert them it isn't such a great loss...

    I have converted my plasma guns as I find the space marine plasma guns look far to bulky. I used space marine bolters and a space marine plasma pistols any marine players you know should have tons of these laying around

    It's pretty simple really here is where I made the cuts



    They need a bit of tidying as I've just made them to show you how it's done and their a bit rushed, but you just glue them together and presto



    The top pic is made using a standard space marine plasma pistol and the bottom one using a chaos marine pistol

    Hope this helps

    I use these and the work pretty well. They are a bit bulky and you have to do some surgery on the arms, but they are a great deal.

    I have done my own conversions using green stuff and wires for plasmaguns and flamers and some extra plastic/knife for the melta nozzle.
