Welcome to Librarium Online!
Bit of a problem fellas. I got my battleforces and a bunch of other stuff, i've gone through and started filing the mould lines on warriors and so forth. Problem is...i can see Splinter Cannons but no Blasters. I bought Dark Lance blisters but there's no blisters for warriors with blasters here in Australia so i assumed they would come on the sprues.
Does someone want to fill me in as to what they should look like or how i can convert one of my warriors to have one? Also some pointers as to how to convert a jetbike to also have a blaster would be very appreciated.

Games Workshop Online Store — Dark eldar warriors With Assault Weapons (2 random models)
On the UK site from GW, there's some pictures of the Dark eldar with blasters. Scroll below on that page to see the metal bits holding a blaster.
how to make it...
First guess and attempt of me would be to see if i could get my hands on old SM flamers. Of perhaps you could use the splinter pistols on the DE sprues, model a more oval shape barrel on it with some greenstuff...
Edit: And as far for the jetbikes. I don't know exactly what's on their sprues. If there is something resembling a Splinter pistol, you could try the same as for the Warriors
I created some wyches from the female warrior bodies and the big hair heads. I wanted two of them to have blasters so I just sawed off a rifle and put 4 spikes around the stub barrel. They look very distictly like special weapons since the model has both hands on it while all the other wyches are using BP and CCW, and I've never had any complaints.
They would probably stand out well in a warrior squad too since they are about 1/2 the length of a splinter rifle and the spikes on the barrel make it look much bigger.

I reccoment adding incubi blasters to your warriors. The conversion is fairly simple to make, simply cut the rifle of a splinter rifle arm, but let the gunhandle stay attached to the hand. Then glue the blaster on to the handle, and you have a blaster warrior. My first three of these beasts look like this:

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
The round-barreled weapon with cables running along the sides is the blaster. The larger one with spikey blades over-and-under is the shredder.
The cheapest source for these is to order incubi arms 'bits' which come with either and cut away the arm part. (or glue it to a plastic Warrior)
Some players cut the blades off the Shredder to turn it into a Blaster. (many people don't like the Shredder much--I use it though) This lets your turn the special weapon bikes that come with the boxed set into a pair of blasters for tank hunting if so inclined.
