I'm new to Warhammer, and liked the look of the Witch Hunters...so I went and bought a bunch of stuff like rulebooks, codex and enough to get started.
And, after reading the rules and looking around, I noticed a rule that says the model has to look like what the unit is carrying...and I don't see any models I can buy to make a Sister Superior with a bolt pistol and a chainsword.
Am I missing something, and what should I do?
Hello, Welcome to LO, good to see another face around here.
There are some sister superior models with the equipment you specified, like the model to the left of the folowing link: http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefr...052&orignav=10
The next model is also similarly equipped, though she is a seraphim so may need some conversion if you intend to have her standing on a base:
If you don't like these models, you could always convert your own sister superior using another model and some of the equipment sprues from the SoB cannoness:
Hope this helps mate,
Hello, and as said, welcome to LO! Make sure to read the forum rules, located here.Originally Posted by DianeOfTheMoon
Generally speaking, most people will want to convert their own models if there isn't a model readily available - that's the beauty of Warhammer. You don't have to use the exact model that Games Workshop makes - you can take parts from different models, as long as it follows WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). This allows you to make some very unique models that are 100% legal. ^_^
Interesting...it seems the UK store has more stuff than the US online store or GW store next to my house...
Thanks for the info, that should finish off my first 500 points!
Gamesworkshop is a UK based company I think, so it's always worth checking them for things you can't find. Though to get stuff mail ordered will cost for delivery expenses, so if you do take this option it might be an idea to plan ahead for what you want and buy in bulk, it'll be cheaper that way.
An easy converstion is to take the bolt pistol from the canoness sprue (assuming you have a canoness which you should and that you didn't take the bolt pistol for her), cut the plasma pistol of the Veteran sister superior that comes in the box and glue it on there. Its dicey cutting pewter the first few times, but you'll find that its almost more forgiving than plastic eventually. I agree with the others that the beauty of warhammer is that you can make you're own models relatively easily, and it's great fun! The canoness pewter sprue is key for making a lot of conversions possible. Also know that you can buy individual bits online if you don't want to buy the whole model (i.e. jump packs for a canoness).
Yup GW was developed in the midlands in the UK and is based in Nottingham. There you are, random info for you. The main GW website has loads of stuff on it, but their direct sales has even more. Including stuff you wouldn't necessarily use anymore etc.
Yeah it was started in the UK, but how come UK prices are higher that US, that sucks *grumble* damn yanks *grumble*
I recently did a "ghetto" conversion, i added a storm bolter to my VS, basically stuck two bolters together, and glued them onto her hand!
Just noticed this tho, the weapons for necromunda were really big, compared to current 40K weapon sizes, even though there are the same scale models... my necromunda bolt pistol is the same size as a SM bolter.
I think prices are higher because we had a price hike recently, and the americans will have one soon. I may be wrong though.
