    Dreadnaught Multi-melta

    How do I make one? I'm replacing the Assault Cannon arm and don't want to wait a week after ordering it. Note that whenever I buy a Black Templar Box set, or any other box set with Meltaguns in it, they get eaten up by my Infantry.

    Not ordering one in. I live in Australia and we don't get seperate bits on offer, and I don't have a credit card (and if I did, I'd use it for something more important than bitz) to order it from overseas.

    How to MAKE one? The original question was how do I MAKE one...

    Can you just buy a Multi-Melta Dev blister and use that in conjunction with the dread's arm housing and some GS?
    We all carry on,
    When our brothers in arms are gone.
    So raise your glass high
    For tomorrow we die,
    And return from the ashes you call.

    yes and if that was to small you could buy 2 of them and glue and green stuff them into the arm until it looks right

    You could try to get your hands on a Sisters of Battle Immolator-kit multi-melta (down on the left on this pic). Shouldn't be to hard if there are any SoB-players in your vicinity.

    Then it would be simple to cut off the weapon on one arm and cut off the front-part of the melta and attach it. The battery-tanks is cut off and attached to the end of the arm or something. Shouldn't be to hard.

    Only problem I would think of is the hose that's essential on a multi-melta. You could try and cut it off to and glue it on, but maybe getting a guitar-wire and drilling holes in the arm were you attach it would be better.

    Okay, thanks for the Aussie plight-friendly advice guys.
    We don't get the fangled Dread Multi-melta arm, Forgeworld... well, what Can I say? We don't get seperate bits ordering, I have no Credit card because I don't live in a basement.

    This is a good help.

    Also, what would you all say to removing the exhaust pipes (I have ideas for the power generator, too) and enlarging the holes to be Melta barrel lines, then putting them on the gun?

    Ok, sarcastic mode on it seems! I guess this isn't response to my post but whatever...

    Could work, but I think some more detail is needed. I still think you should rob some poor SoB-player of their multi-melta bits. : D

    Those pieces are hardly used and readily available. Maybe your local GW store would have a few lying around that you could have for free.

    I'm not sure how much time you have, but if you're willing to go the extra mile, you can find wonderful conversion bits at your local hardware store. For the barrels of the melta gun, you could use wooden dowels (cut down of course) or drill bits, or an old car antenna (again, cut down). Almost any thin cylindrical piece of metal can be used in this fashion. The hose can be made from industrial strength rubber coated electical wire. You can also find this product at the hardware store. You'll have to strip the rubber off, but that isn't that difficult. As for the random bits of electical and metal plating, I generally go through my garage, looking for random scraps. I'm always amazed at how many useless things that I've stored up over the years find their way into my bit box. Turns trash into treasure.

    Good Luck.
