Hello all, I'ed just like to tell you I'm new to converting so you'll have to excuse the noob like question.
Anywho, I was just wondering how i would be able to show my Senoir Officer using a stormbolter (or any other weapon that doesnt come pasted onto the model when I bought him). The only models that I know of using a SB are SM Terminators. Also, even if I did somehow create a SB, how would i make it look like he was hold/firing the gun?
The Same question also applies to Stormtrooper Seargents and a Commisar. I personally dont like CC weapons (Whom in which all my command models are using)
As as a side question, Can conscripts be taken with the Grenadiers doctrine or does it have to be a "regular" inf. platoon?
Woah slow down there buddy.
First of all, I have no idea of how to convert your commander, there are many, many, many ways to convert them but you'll have to figure out what you like the look of.
As for the stormtroopers its basically just clipping off their hands and putting new ones on holding the weapons you want.
Hope this helps.
First you do a search on GW-mailorder, then you find this: Space Marine Commander Storm Bolter, then you order it.
Get to work!
You will need to chop off the original weapon on the model you are converting, then chop the hand off the bolter and glue it on. Space marine hands don't look good on guardsmen in my opinion...
If you want him to fire the gun you will have to get a set of arms that fit. I think you might be able to use the special weapons arms from the cadian sprue. They look like they are using a heavy gun, and the storm bolter is as heavy as they get! (except for heavy weapons of course) I think it looks just plain silly to have a guardsman firing a stormbolter one-handed.
EDIT: here it is on US-mailorder, just in case: Space Marine Commander Storm Bolter
Hey, thanks, that helps alot. Now to figure out how to remove that sword from my commanders body without making it look like he was mauled by a carnifex...
