Welcome to Librarium Online!
Firstly, I understand that this has been asked before but my searches on here and the 'Seer came up with nothing.
So, what do I need to make 2 interchangable Falcon/Prisms? I have all the tools/magnets etc, just not the tanks themselves.
I assume I should buy 2 Prism boxes, plus another 2 turret sprues. Does that cover it all?
Does anyone have the GW Code for the sprue, as I cant find it on the online store but I'm sure you can get it.
Also, is the Fire Prism Prism Crystal solid or is it hollow? I have a really cool idea forming in my head at this moment...:shifty:
that would definitely be the more cost efficient route, as the parts for the prism by themselves are about 40$. All the parts specific to the prism are metal, so it's a bit of a bear to balance.
Another turret sprue would be the best way. unfortunately, i checked the US, UK and CA webstores and it looks like you can't just buy the falcon sprue
That being said, if you wanted to pull this stunt with a waveserpent and a falcon instead, by buying a wave serpent sprue and a falcon kit, you could figure out a way of interchanging those two, and the wave serpent sprue is cheap (10-15$) I did this when i found an old falcon for sale for 20$
Edit: fixed my mixup with serpents / falcons
Um... you just need to buy the fire prism box to make either of them. So you want 2 so buy two fire prisms. Thats everything you need. Nothing else required but magnets.
As mentioned by greymonk only the Fire Prism boxes are needed as they come with enough parts to make both the Falcon or Fire Prism turret, the only problem is with that is that the Fire Prism parts are metal so you may find that magnets struggle to hold them to the main turret. With that said I think you're better off using pins instead of magnets. The Turret already uses a pin like method for attaching the weapon parts but these are molded in plastic, replacing them with a harder material should make them more effective.
You can still buy the falcon turret sprue seperately, you just have to give mail order a call.
They don't have it online because they want to discourage people from doing this instead of paying £25 for a falcon, but it is still possible
does the falcon come with one or two main turret assemblies? My understanding was that it only came with one (the actual part where the gunner sits) so if you wanted to make them swappable (the entire turret) then you'd need another sprue. I guess it depends on how you want to make them magnetizable, but i've found that making the individual guns removable rather then the entire turret is a bit of a pain.
Good to know you can get them by direct calling them, i figured you could walk into a store as well, but online they won't allow it. seems kinda pointless on their part to me, just adds to the frustration of trying some new conversions.
Why make the turret swappable? The weapons swap easy enough. The magnets i've used are easily strong enough to hold the pewter pieces (i might argue that they are too strong). Just insure you are using sizeable rare earth magnets.
So what I need is two Fire Prism boxes and two extra turrets (by mail order)?
