    Acceptable Plasmagun Conversions for I.G.

    Would the general consenus be that for plasma gun conversions, a flamer with a chopped off flamer nozzle replaced with a plasma gun tip, and the tube cut off so it looks like a plasma containment flask be acceptable?

    Yeah, there is no right and wrong, as long as it gives off the sort of impression its a plasma gun, it doesn't matter.

    The way I see it, if you want to convert something, just do it.

    If you want it to be acceptable by all opponents, however, you have to make sure it's 'what you see is what you get' - if your opponent looks at the conversion, and could not possibly mistake your plasmagun for anything else, your conversion is a success. If confusion often arises, I might find another way to do it!

    Someone I know liked to paint his SM's swords with glowing special effects and so on, but only a look at the army list will make you realise they aren't actually power weapons. This is the type of confusion you'd want to avoid.

    From what you've described, however, i'd say your conversion is probably fine!

    Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.

    Ive done the same thing so a flamer and some spare tau bitz to make plasma and melta guns. Just tell your opponent what they are before the game starts.
