Does anyone else hate the broadside models besides me? I absoloutly can't stand them, the railguns are too small and look gay mounted vertically, then the smart missile sysytem looks like a bunch of bricks attached to their arms. Thats some of the reasons why I use railheads instead
Now the Forgeworld Broadsides... thats a different story :w00t:

Hey there If you dont like the broadsides, you can customize them yourself. you can cut off the arms and mount them of the sholders. there are grooves on the railgun that are used to mount can be used to mount the railgun on thearms. also remember that crisis and broadside battle suits are the equilivent size of a warboss, 9 feet tall yet a warboss model doesnt look.
The forge world broadside although cool lookin is just a broadside with resin parts that you can use or not use. still same size as a regular broadside.
I agree the railgun is gimpy on a braodside, the pathfinders should use those guns instead.
Also there is a section of gamesworkshop that sells parts only, like Abbadons left arm and a Hormagaunts head, you can get a hammerhead rail gun for about 3 dollars, but the shipping is a bit much 3 dollars, for the items, so order all parts at the same time.
Yeah, I don't like them at all. So I make them slightly more decorative and rmove the arms form the missile pod things and mount them on the shoulder hard points, then use regular crisis arms and glue the railguns to those instead. Makes for some pretty cool poses, a least

I don't hate the broadsides I like them a lot and for the smaller railgun it is because it haven't the submission ability I don't think that it looks gay, but I customize the suit aswell and uses green stuff to make the guns bigger
Yes, because I can see why the railguns look homosexual......
But aye, I don't think they look crap. I like the looks of them, though a couple of minor conversions never hurt, and would make them look more interesting.

I hated the broadsides to but i mounted the railsguns on the arms and discarded the metal arms. Then i used the bit that is supposed to be the missles and glued those to the thys so it looks like the missles are coming out of the legs. I love it now.

Arakiaz got any pictures of your broadside conversions?
Yah those forge world broadsides look sweet! Maybe when the new codex comes out they'll change the BS model to ones similar to the forgeworld ones.Originally Posted by gen.nehring
Heh cant we say that anything Forgeworld pretty much kills all normal stuff?
once you see FW, i dont think you want to turn back
I personally don't reallyl ike the overall look of the current GW crisis suits.. i dont know.. seem like they are lacking something.. i cant describe..
Indeed.. vertically mounted guns, the true mark of a homosexual.Originally Posted by gen.nehring
Personally, I wouldn't call anyone with a railgun gay.. not when he was within several miles, anyway.
I think the broadside models look alright myself.. In most classic mecha stuff there is always a mech with an oversized shoulder mounted gun. Personally though, I think they'd look better with one rather than two, or with both mounted on one side.
