a'right, i'm making this Cityfighting Imperial guard Army, to go with the new Cities of Death codex, and i am in the middle of making a veteran squad, with three flamers, a sargeant with close combat weapon and boltpistol, and the rest with close combat weapons. My problem lies in, that i find it quite boring, and not very veteran-like to have the standard flamers like everyone else, can you guys think of something i could do to my flamers so they look more suited for cityfight and/or personalized?
Skulls and spikes make everything nice! Seriously, get soem bits of skulls, chains, spikes, and mae it look nasty.
well yeah. Problem is the force is one of those Emperor-loving, glory-seeking, do-it-by-the-book forces, so while personalization and battlefield repairs are fine, skulls and spikes are looking a little too chaos-ish. but good idea anyway, nice of you to reply so fast!
i'm asking this question, since having three exactly alike weapons in a squad looks quite boring, and i'd like to avoid boring..
thinking of flamers, i'm having a friend that play Space marines, and he'd probably be able to give me a flamer, but would the Marine flamer fit in the hands of an imperial guardsman? i mean, that way the poor fellow wouldn't have to carry those dangerous prometheum tanks on his back, not to mention the weight of those tanks when they're filled...
What about converting one to hold 2 hand flamers like the Seraphim, and just use them as a flamer?
He's coming for you...
That is a good idea but someone pointed out that two hand flamers would get confused with counting as 2 ccw like the seraphims do. But as long as you point this out to you opponent there should be no problem, so go for it!Originally Posted by MasokisticAngel

Ok, then maybe imperial blessings on some of the guns (get some paper or something like that). Maybe get a sniper rifle, take off the scope and put a few of those on a few of the guns, at least a sight on the gun, for the CCWs put your own inscriptions in them, or use GS to make a cooler handle, whatever you want.Originally Posted by me_meza
Forgeworld elysian specail weapons pack includes several very tasty flamers that are non-standard
Everything you have been told is a lie!
both the Elysian special weapons and the Scope idea will be looked into, thanks guys!
Meza, I too have been contemplating a city fight guard army. I kinda picture a tactical environment where mobility and portability are crucial predominantly at a squad level. Therefore, as I approach style design, I would think about making weapons more flexible in terms of the way they are used - consider the flamer: to have it connected to a backpack fule supply may be too ungainly (hard to move about in). what about a standalone modification (the SM version comes to mind) with a fron foregrip or somthing. That way the trooper could feasably fire it around corners without exposing much of himself at all. Same with standard issue lasguns - cut the butts off and add foregrips and lasers or other optics to give the guard a more tactical feel. Just a thought.

when you say foregrip, do you mean like this little baby?
The only problem is, that i dont consider myself good enough a converter, to make every of the about 100 lasguns in my force have a foregrip, and how would you do it? 4 out of 5 of the lasguns on the cadian sprue are with the hand moulded on, and it would get a little expensive to buy all those boxes, to get the lasguns without hands... alternatively, i could shave off the hand, but then the next problem arises, where can I get some hands that hold on the foregrip, instead of the standard pose?
but again, i dont think i have the time and skill to make all the lasguns have foregrip, but i think i could try on some veterans.
but i really like your idea, MAV, thank you!
