FW: Vanquisher Turrents
« on: July 20, 2003, 02:51:41 PM »
Hi, first off new IG player :)

and decided to stop lurking and start posting...  after I realized that in the past month I have played my space marines not at all and my IG 16+...

Been eyeing the guard for a while, and with the new plastics started building up a force... can't wait for the new codex.  


I have some questions for someone that has the FW vanquisher turent(s).

Gryphonne:  I like this barrel better; but like the idea of the hv stubber that the stygies has better.  
-  Is the searchlight fixed to the turrent?  If so, would it be difficult to remove it?

Stygies:  I like the look  hv stubber better then the storm bolter... but I like the barrel on the gryphonne better, and the turrent.
-  Is the targeter fixed to the turent or is it from the lemun russ kit?


Sigh, wish FW would include pictures of the unassembled kits as well; it would make it easier to see conversion possibilities with out shelling out the cash.  Love how GW will show you the sprues online... much easier seeing how the kits work.

Umm, Stygies pattern has a Stormbolter, not a Heavy Stubber... :-\

Was a General of the Imperial Guard, now more of a freelance Captain sort of thing. Ish. Keeping the rank pins though, they look nice.

Right, the current IG codex states storm bolter...

but goto the FW site and examine the picutres- the Stgies pattern has a coaxil gun that is longer then a stormbolter and has a flashsupressor/muzzle brake that looks much more like a stubber... ie nothing like a storm bolter.

Anyways, I like how it looks better... :)

Considering the new IG codex is ditching pintile storm bolters for hv stubbers...

I  got a vanquisher turret (one with the search light)
Its 3 pieces, the barrel, the turret and the search light.
The barrel and the main turret did not go together very well at all, several hours of careful sanding sorted that out,

That is a stormbolter with a longer barrel, not a heavy stubber Epaminondas.

Epaminondas: Just a quick note, it's "turret", not "turrent" or "turent"

Pintle Mounted lasgun?  Surely you jest.  I personally can't wait till we get heavy stubbers, it'll be great for dealling with those damn orks.

As for the turrets, get the Stygies.  It looks wicked cool.
