Does anyone have any ideas on how to use 1 Terminator Squad boxed set and give it 2 Assault Cannons as they are my favorite weapons along with Plasma Pistols and Storm Bolters. I was thinking of cutting up the dreadnought assault cannon to make use of it.
ask someone for a spare cannon?
build your own? it is basically a box with 6 tubes sticking out of it. that could be made out of thick wire, greenstuff, thin drinking straws.
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
Just cut of the flamer part off the heavy flamer then add 2 Tau Burst Cannons on it..if you dont have access to burst Cannons im not sure what too do.
Pew pew pew! (Had too)
actually, i did this sort of thing on one of my terminators.
i had bought the older style terminators (it was before the 'new' termies were released), and there wasnt an assault cannon included (only a heavy flamer), so i used the assault cannon that was left over from my dreadnought.
(the first 3 pictures)
basically, i just cut off the dual-barrel of the heavy flamer and stuck the barrel assembly of the dreadnought assault cannon in its place. i also tried to position it so that the bottom-most barrel (the barrel through which the bullets would fire) was lined up with the mass of the flamer underneath the termie's fist, so as to keep it a little bit realistic as the bullets would need to travel from the feed to the barrel....
the dark grey boxy-thingy is the ammunition box. it's just two 1:35 scale ammo boxes glued together that i grabbed from a little WWII random battlefield accessories box....but really, if you have any sort of ammo box that would fit i think it would work.
i made them appear "integral" to the termie's shoulder by simply cutting out a little square shape from his shoulder just big enough for the box to fit inside of.
basically, the whole job was just cut here, glue there.
i hope this helps

Better crippled in body than corrupt in mind.
Take a ball of green stuff and 6 pieces of brass tubing of something similar (I used necron rods). Roll the barrels around the piece of green stuff to make 6 barrels in the circle like the assault cannon. Cut off the nozzle of the heavy flamer and put the barrels on. Add a piece of plastic on the bottom.
I did this for my tornado Land Speeders. They all look pretty neat.
Biro pens are your friend for this. Some short lengths of these and a few plasticard or greenstuff discs make barrels very similar to the "real" ones, and can be easily grafted onto the plastic arms of the heavy flamer using nothing more than plastic cement.
Greetings from Planet X, I hope you enjoy your day.
