Welcome to Librarium Online!
Okay, here's the problem. I need a spare flamer for my assault squad, but none of my friends have spare space marine sized ones, and I don't want to buy another tactical squad box. However, one of my friends does have some spare Imperial Guard flamers. Is it possible to convert them to fit a space marine?
It should be quite possible.
If you start with cutting of the strap, tubing and the handle part. Then you should cut of the back part of a normal bolter( the part behind the magazine and above the handle) and add it to rear of the flamer. This should ensure the i will fit in the normal trigger hand of the marine.
I would then add one of the meltabombs from the assualt squad sprue as a fuel canister underneath (trim to fit of course)
The final step would be to add a purity seal if something doesnt look too great.
That should be close to a marinebolter and it is definetly the way i would do it.
or see if any of your friends have the old catachan IG flamers. Those are pretty much exactly the same as the current assault marine ones.
I have too many armies to list in my signature!
Have you had a look on the bitz section, im sure you can get like packs of 5 weapons, if not, take a bolter, cut off the Magazine, green stuff a cylender in place of it, then cut off the bolter muzzle, replace with the head of the flamer, blam! quick and easy!
you could use a melta bomb as the cansiter as said befor but i think it may be a little too small.
