    Okay, as we all know what each soldier's equipment is must be represented on the model. With my last chancers i'm going for carapace armour. No problems there, i can easily use the cadian trooper models for this. Here is my problem though, i am arming all 20 with storm bolters. These weapons are held one handed and all models are designed to hold lasguns 2 handed. Now i thought of using the space marine assault sprue to help me out with this, would it be wrong if i used the Tau pulse carbine to represent the storm bolter? I'm trying to find a two handed replacement in an attempt to lower build costs and still have a unit that looked really kool.

    Give me your 2 cents please. (Y)

    Yep, 630 points. 1 HQ & 2 troops choices used up also but i think its worth it for the firepower with a BS of 4.

    Not a bad idea, never thought of that, but then have to get hold of 40 bolters, still its worth a look at. (Y)

    Dude what are you doing?

    Fair enough though, any fluff to go with these convicts being given expensive weapons?

    Well all i can say is get some demo charges too, i mean c&#39;mon its compulsory.

    As for the models :blink:

    2 bolt pistols or bolt guns glued together is the best bet. I&#39;m sure you can weapon sprues from GW online store somewhere.

    You could model them with a bolt pistol in each hand and call it a storm bolter. Looks cool but isnt "technically" correct. As long as you have a clearly written or printed roster showing you paid the points for the storm bolters you should be fine.

    Fluff? Erm lets see, there was a major uprising at the academy on cadia, instead of shooting so many tallented officers they were dumped into Shaeffer&#39;s lap and taken on kamikaze mission&#39;s. Because of Shaeffer&#39;s stubborn resolve they took a liking to him and followed him on many successful missions and continue to do so.

    How&#39;s that?

    Honestly though if you&#39;re having trouble getting 40 bolters just try asking a friend that plays marines of any sort. Lord only knows how many spare bolters I have in my bitz box.
