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)
you could take two regular bolters, glue em together, and use that

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?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.
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'mon its compulsory.
As for the models :blink:
2 bolt pistols or bolt guns glued together is the best bet. I'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's lap and taken on kamikaze mission's. Because of Shaeffer's stubborn resolve they took a liking to him and followed him on many successful missions and continue to do so.Originally posted by Archaon@Jan 5 2005, 09:10

Honestly though if you'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.
