basicaly i need to do what my title says turn a plasma pistol into a bolt pistol for my wolf priest...its ulrik the slayer becuase i couldn't find another wolf preist at my local hobbie store....but could use all the help i can thanks in advance
thanks for moving it to the right section...and thanks for the replies so far. But the model is medal well that matter in how to change because it came pre-attached to the body.
Shouldn't be too hard to carefully saw or chop off the top of the plamsa pistol (leaving the hand, handle, and trigger guard), file it flat, then cut the handle and trigger guard off a plastic or metal bolt pistol hand, file THAT flat, and glue the bolt pistol top to the model's waiting hand, likely with a bit of putty to smooth out the edge.
All you really have to modify is the muzzle and cartridge. If it looks weird you can claim it was mastercrafted.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Best thing I'd suggest is getting hold of a hand with a bolt pistol, clipping off the hand with the plasma pistol, then filing it smooth then using superglue to glur on the Bolt pistol hand. That's what I did for my chaplain8Y

I don't know what the figure you are working on looks like, so this is just idle speculation on my part, but as a rule, it looks better if you clip off an entire weapon and hand and replace it with another weapon and hand. The wrist makes a good surface for glue, and is even stronger if you pin it. Check around this forum for hints on how to drill and pin a joint. If you cut a pistol or blade from a hand and try to glue a new weapon on that hand, you run the risk of it looking slightly wonky. Cutting at the wrist is more likely to give you a better looking hand, since it was moulded that way.

Zapp: You see the killbots have a preset kill limit. Knowing their weakness, I sent wave after wave of my own men at them until they reached their limit and shut down.
to answer target the model is ulrik the slayer who is a SC because the space wolves don't have any regular HQ at the hobbie shop i shop at so thats why i want to change the plasma to bolt pistol
