    Boltguns

    Hey guys please forgive if this is a stupid question im pretty new to the hobby. I was just wondering what box sets had boltguns in them cause i was gonna arm my sergeants with them as they r only a 2 point upgrade. Let me know if you think if that is a worthwhile upgrade or more importantly where can i get the damn things?
    Your help is much appreciated

    i think it might be the catachan commander box set, and that is it, though why not use the space marine ones?

    eBay is a great place to find bits like that for cheap.

    i think with the space marine boltguns you can attach it the same as the ones with the catachan box, not sure though

    Which wergeants were you planning on arming this way? Because only storm trooper sergeants can take boltguns, and those are free for them.

    under infantry squad it says the sergeant can exchange his laspistol for a bolt pistol for 2 points, but im starting to realise im gonna have to get a command squad everytime i want a bolt pistol haha sooo i guess its an upgrade i shouldnt bother with unless i can find 10 of htem on ebay or something

    TBH boltguns suck anyway, it won't make a noticable difference to your damage output.

    well, it is only a 2pt upgrade anyways. besides, usually having a boltgun/pistol meant the IG character was a fluff badass, though not sure if that's still the case anymore.
    easiest place to get some for free, anybody who plays space marines. especially if they use Scouts, since that kit comes with 5 bolt pistols, 5 shotguns, and 5 boltguns. most people should be willing to give you a common bit like that for free.

    Or any marine player - you get 1x pistol per tac squad sprue. If you sweet talk the local GW staff member he may be able to find you one in the bits box / prod a marine player
