Default Devilfish Machine Gun Mount

I was bored so I threw this together with some junk out of my bits box. I used two Pulse Rifles for the base with the targeters and stocks cut off. I used one of the stocks to connect the two sides and after drilling some holes in the rifles, mounted them on a pintle from a Leman Russ. I then took the handles from a Heavy Bolter and slapped them on the back. I finally took the Photon Grenade Launcher off a Pulse Carbine, flipped it, and used it as a scope. With painting it took about an hour and I think will give the vehicle a nice touch for the tournament I'm playing in next month. Heres the pics.

The cool thing is that I left the joints dry so you can still pose it. So tell me what you think. I have three other Devil Fish and I want to do something unique for each so suggestions are apreciated.

Heres rules for it....

Range= Same as standard Pulse rifle
Ap= Same as standard Pulse rifle

Special rules:

This turret is twinlinked

Gun strength is more then 4 so weapon can be removed if weapon destroyed is rolled from a glancing or penatrating hit.
Can fire if tank is immobilised.

Neat idea!!

I've got a few large miniguns coming as replacements from FW from the crap ones they sent with the large gun drones. I could plant one of them up there instead of the twin carbines...

hmmmmmmm

Default Very nice!

Looks really good, and makes a whole lot of sense that a Devilfish should have a pintal mount

That's really awesome. I think I'll do the same thing once I get a Devilfish.

Very nicely done.
Both painting and converting and coming up with such a great idea.

Hey mind if I work something out like that for mine?
I think that would look great on my big walker!

Agian nicely done and as simple as it seems its also amazing and really well done.

Very cool.
