I recently purchased a predator and have a pair of lascannon sponsons left over. I've been meaning to swap my missile launcher marines for lascannon marines, and I'm trying to see if I can see a way to make the conversion. Ideally, I'd like to cannibalize the old ML wielding models and put some lascannons on them. However, I'm worried about mangling the model in this process. In addition, the tank-sized lascannon looks like it could easily be far too large for power armor.
Has anyone tried using sponson lascannons as lascannons for a heavy weapons space marine? Am I going to have any luck at all at cutting away the missile launchers without mangling the model? I'm playing Black Templars, so no Dev Squads... but I'd rather have some rarely used models that look good, than a pair of sad looking mangled models that I'm ashamed to attach myself to.
It's going to be hard to pull that off, as the sponson lascannons have this 'box' around them which makes it look really bulky. I don't think it would look good on a marine...

why not get some of the old shoulder mounted lascannons?
as youre playing a crusading army that has been around a bit then this would be fluffy as well.

I was thinking of using the lascannons I had simply because I already have them. I always feel bad about not using all my bits (It's driving me nuts that I have all of these BT Bolters now, and have pretty much all the bolter marines that I'll need already assembled. )
I'm probably either going to just use them in some sort of defensive structure, perhaps make an attempt at putting together a keep for my Templars. Either that or use some plasticard to turn a Rhino into a second Predator. I've already made one attempt at constructing the top turret. Hardly pretty, but it wouldn't look god awful from across the table. A few more attempts and I may be able to make something respectable.
Thanks for the feedback guys. I was a little doubtful of this clever idea of mine, and I think I'm just going to stick to getting Dev squad parts, or go for one of the old shoulder lascannons. Thanks.
