Welcome to Librarium Online!
okay so, now that new vypers seem to come with heavy weapons, can anyone tell me which ones they are like??
is this a brand new sprue or can you get the same thing somewhere else?
the reason i ask is that my vypers are about a year old now and if there are new looking bright lances out there i want to get my hands on them. currently they have bright lances from the old metal weapons platform. is there any difference in the new ones??
Hi, you can get them in warwalkers and guardian platforms, the smaller ones. ($35 NZ).
Either would be a good choice as you can still use the other avalible options and not waste the model.:yes:
There are 2 types of heavy weapons for Eldar, the difference is slight in looks and scale, the main point of differenciation is the mount point:
Some use a ball and socket mount (Vypers, Wave Serpents)
Some use a tongue and groove mount (Walkers, wraithlords, guardian weapons platforms)
The first set is the ones you want, the sprue that comes with teh vyper is not brand new but is in fact the sprue out the wave serpent box (you get two sprues in the serpent box, unsurprising since they are twin linked)
Everything you have been told is a lie!
ty for all the helpful info guys.... now if there was only an easy way to get a shuri cannon on the bottom
I glued a shuricannon in place of the shuricats on a vyper of mine and it looks fine. I think there is now a cannon upgrade in either the waveserpent or available from forgeworld...I can't remember where I saw it but it exists. You might also be able to by the shuricannon bit out fro the jetbikes and use that.

I meant the smaller one. Eg the one in the battle force.
NOt the big ones, D-cannon, shadow waever and vibro cannon.
The other weapons, such as Distort Cannon, Vibro Cannon, and Shadow Weaver are Support Weapons, not heavy weapons, so use that term (rather than small platform and large platform) and everybody will know what you are talking about.
Not trying to be insulting, just typing really fast at work and don't really have time to think about a nice way to say it. Sorry.
