I was wondering how you would make a kaigun for a Chaos LT of lord.
I had in mind a plama gun or bolter with the tank sprue head thing stuck onto the front of it with some green stuff work. Any better suggestions or easier??
Hope is the first step on the road to dissapointment.

a kai gun can be pretty much anything you can imagine as there are no real pictures of it or descriptions. How about a heavy bolter with a tau plasma rifle barrel and the muzzle from the chaos plastic lascannon sprue topped off by a tau shield generator. Or a bolter with six barrels, a venom cannon with a necron gaus blaster at the end, a shuriken catapault with a flamer attached. The possiblities are constrained only by your imagination

it is said that a kai gun is a heavy bolter with rounds that have the infused essence of daemons in it. you might want to check out osme older white dwarfs because there was a picture of how someone made it out of cadian heavy weapons, and it was cool looking.
The Chaos codex says that even if a daemon weapon is described as a sword/blade whatever it doesn't have to be modelled that way.
Anything will do provided it's nasty, impressive and daemonic looking and you tell your opponent what it is.
So it could be represented by a majic gauntlet that zaps people with Chaos energy or some kind of mystical electric globe or anything else you can come up with.
If it must be a big gun then I would using the Chaos marine heavy bolter or sticking lots of spikes or skulls all over a standard boltgun to make it look daemonic.
Isn't there a kai gun mounted on the back of the hand of the standard deamon prince.
The Kai gun is a daemon weapon and can therefore look as wierd and wonderful as you like.
Let your imagination run riot, provided the result looks scary rather than comical, you've done a good job.
I would recommend lots of guitar wire, icky green stuff work (very easy, just mash the stuff around then varnish coat it later to smooth off the harsh edges) and combining different gun parts. I'd probably base it on a plasma cannon, but that's just me.
