I'm trying to find a way to get a lot of missile launchers.
The idea is mostly for big games at around the 6000 mark. I play vs Eldar a lot of that point value so the more crack missiles I can fire the better. Problem is availability. Tac set gives one. The devastator kit only has 1 launcher in it. I also got one from a black reach set. I looked around online and it seems your looking at aroung 5 bucks for a bits auction. I also checked out other marine kits and can't find one that has at least 2+ launchers. I don't mind getting extra bodies to convert or do other stuff with.
So... I figure some of you must share the more crack missiles the better mentality so how do you load up on launchers without spending too much on bits orders? Worst case scenario would be to convert some HK missiles. I'd rather not though.
well the easiest way would have to be bitz box, check out their site. If you make an account then you can get them to email you when the parts come in and if your real quick you'll get the parts you need.
Theres a missile launcher in the black reach box set, devi squad and tac sqaud to yeh it could be a real long time until you get all the ones you need but thats the easiest way i know

Buy them on ebay, they should be cheap if you buy them second hand, I have quite a few I got off there.
If your a handy type person you can just make your own (missle launchers are about the only weapon even a novice can make). Just go to the store and get some ridged 1/4" pipe. Use bolters and other missile bits to make the trigger handles, aiming scopes and ammunition. At its very base a missle launcher is just a tube with a handle, as long as you add in some extra frills it will look fine.
The only honorable options left to we combatants is seppuku or semantics...which amount to the same thing really.
Ask any guard players you may know. They typically don't use them on their heavy weapons teams, so you can probably bum some guard players for their launchers.
Cool I forgot about guard launchers. I know a guy that rarely if ever uses them so he must have extra. Will probably look at mixing hunter killer missile bits with those.
Thanks for the suggestions.
The only problem is see is having arms in the right spots to hold the launcher, post pics when your done.

It might take some conversion work and creativity to do - ought to not be overly difficult, if you're a bit liberal about your poses.
I would just let your opponents know what you have "equipped" and over time try to build up the real models by asking friends and getting lucky on ebay.
You can now buy 2 missile launchers with arms from Forgeworld. They're also waaay cooler than the normal missile launcher tube!
