    I don't know but some simple conversions.

    Put your missile Launchers on Regular Cadians as Hand Held ones.
    Put your mortors on little bases and place near 2 regular Cadians,

    Make the remainder swapable buy not gluing the weapon in. Putting Pins in the feet of the guys that will go on the basses. Then put pin holes appropriately on the big base to sthy can be placed appropriate to the heavy weapon.

    Frankly though I like using the AutoCannons and Lascannons on my Sentinals
    2 of the Heavy Bolters on a Chimera conversion.

    well what i did was put the lascannons on the proper base, give the missile launcher to normal guardsmen and give the autocannon to a normal guardsmen and make it look like hes packing it up. i didnt bother with the heavy bolter or the mortar but i might get around to it someday.

    Ok, here goes:

    When you make lascannons, go ahead and use the parts that are supplied in the box as is. Lascannons are a pain in the arse to make any other way.

    To make a Heavy Bolter do this: Take the Grenade Launcher arms (Which you aren't using anyways because ALL of your squads have Plasma Guns, riiiiiight? :yes: Good.) Cut the Grenade launcher right arm off at the ammo drum. This should leave that hand holding a handle and the left arm is holding a bracing handle. All of this should be attached to a kneeling guardsman so that the next step will look right.

    Take the Heavy bolter and glue the right hand just under the lip at the back of the weapon. Now it looks like your Guardsman is one-handing the weapon. Then glue the left arm on and make the bracing handle touch the left side of Heavy Bolter. This makes it look like the Heavy Bolter has a ****ing handle now.

    To prop the weapon up off of the ground, I used the sandbags that they provide and propped the gun up on sandbags.

    Voila. Heavy Bolter.

    Autocannon is almost exactly the same, exept that you have used up the sandbags, so now use a standing guardsman and use the same exact grenade launcher trick as above. Take the Missile Launcher legs (The bipod legs instead othe tripod legs that you used on the Lascannons) When it's all glued together you have a guardsman standing up holding the Autocannon with two hands and it's sitting on a bipod.

    The missile Launcher can just be attached to a guardsman as supplied if I remember correctly, you just don't use the bipod legs with it and it won't look oddd.

    The mortar is also able to be used right out of the box, although I never use mortars so I'm not exactly sure about this one.


    I'll look around for the article on how to do all of this again, but I'm fairly sure that it is gone from the internet now. Perhaps when I get a good camera I'll take a few pictures of this procedure post them here.
