i have purchased a box set of the new cadian heavy weapons team. and i noticed that there are 3 of each heavy weapon, 3 autocannons 3 heavy bolters 3 lascannons 3 mortar and 3 missle launchers. now since the box only comes with 3 cadian troop models and ony enough bipods, tripods, etc. im going to try and take 9 unused shock troops and assemble the entire box of heavy weapons!! just basicallly convert and convert. you could even have them carrying the weapons to there location or covert them so that their lying down. im going to cut up cocktail sticks and glue them together for the tripods.. ill see if i can get some pics.
thisll save me at least 90 bucks, buy me some hellhounds with that cash!!
good idea or bad idea
or you could use some of the weapons like the heavy bolter in terrain as weapon mounts in ruins and bunkers, good for city fight terrain.

good plan im tempted to buy a heavy weapons team now so i ccan put the lascannons and heavy bolters on space marines and i could use the autocannons to make twin linked lascannons on my dread then i could sell off the mortars to my ig playing friend now thats a plan

yes i have done it in the past its a great idea if they are plastic weapons or lascannons those are the easiest to convert i did it with a set of long fangs and i converted a plasma cannon off of a prediter onto a dreadnought arm it looks cool and didnt cost me squat!
Or u could just put a small sand bag bunker on it instead of makin a tripod
I never thought about that before...
Thanks for the idea mate!
Ok, I don't play cadians myself, but as you others have mentioned, the excess weapons will work fine as parts in scenery....
So that's what I'm gonna do!
Think about using them in conjunction with forgeworld sandbag enplacements.

that does sound like a good idea but i was thinking of making them withouth the bases and then building different bases, from small emplacements to rubble for the different tables
good idea but dont use cocktail sticks
phone mail order and ask for the front legs of the old chatchan jungle fighters missile launcher its a bipod but it will work

Very good idea and i agree with using them as weapon mounts now im brain storming. tanx
