Welcome to Librarium Online!
I got 2 new Emperor's CHildren boxes the other day and included there was only enough close combat weapons to make 3 guys per box of 8 men, plus a bolt pistol arm to give to the AC, leaving 1 chainsword arm left over. All in all there were four pairs of CC arms. Is this right? It doesn't seem to make any sense. I have 1 blastmaster, one sonic blaster 3 CC guys, 1 AC and then 3 bolter guys. Is this what the box was supposed to come with? It doesn't seem sensible. Who would equip their SLaanesh like:
1 AC with power sword and cc weapon
1 Sonic Blaster
3 guys with CC weapons
1 guy with a bolter
and then two extra guys to make into the next squad with bolters.
I think I got ripped off. Noone would make their squad like that.
You got ripped off when you decided to buy the EC-box instead of making your own...
My friend uses the standard CSM-box and converts all his sonic blasters. Really simple. He ads a gargoyle-like head to the bolter so it looks like it is screaming at the enemy. You can also do a similar this by using greenstuff. Just make a mouth-like thing on the bolter, cut off the ammo-clip and attach a hose to the place the clip was supposed to be. Drag this hose so it attaches to the models mouth. Now you have an easy sonic blaster. The Blastmaster can be done similarly by using the Heavy Bolter.
What you bought was the standard CSM box with extra parts.. so it is right... but it does seem weird that with every 4 comes 2 sets of ccws.
oh and Da Mighty Camel... the EC box is the based on the regular Chaos space marine box with emperors children specific parts
GREY KNIGHTS RULE!
and you don't get the undivided aspiring champion sprue with it.the EC box is the based on the regular Chaos space marine box with emperors children specific parts
you could have lost some close combat weapons there.
I made my own sonic blasters/blast masters. Get a bunch of thumbtacks (the ones that look kind of like satelite dishes) then glue them on to the end of bolters. and connect 3 in a triangle formation to the end of a heavy bolter.
Oh, and remember to cut off the pointy part of it down as far as you can.
