Default Making Multi-Meltas

Is there any way to make multimeltas using meltaguns? I have an excess of meltaguns, but to finish my salamanders list I requre a few more multimeltas. As of now, I'm using landspeeder multimeltas on the few guys I use. There doesn't seem to be any way for me to get multimeltas any other way besides conversion, as the metal multimelta marine is out of production, and the current Devastators marine box is terrible for the price.

I reckon it's doable. I have plenty of meltaguns, I too am doing counts-as Salamanders and I wasn't going to take multi-meltas but if I can come up with anything I will, seeing as it's free. I'll see what I can do later tonight, and post pictures.

My suggestion would be to take 2 Meltaguns and shave the sights completely off of the top and then slice the Melta barrels so they are even with the top where the sight used to be. Take one of the meltaguns and cut off the hose and the handle of one meltagun, flip and then glue the shaved sections together (essentially mirroring the meltagun). It would probably be a good idea to put something into the location where the handle was removed, maybe a melta-bomb without the handle, or something else to represent an extra tank of melta-fuel.

Another option is to give them SM pistol hands (from assault squads, biker, whatever that can hold a pistol) and give them 2 Meltaguns and count them as Multi-Meltas.

Hope it helps.

That is a BRILLIANT idea! I'll do that. Sorry Ninja Ork, I won't be trying conversion =P

Wow, that truly is brilliant. No need for apologies Circus - that awesome idea won't just be for you!

Someone give Vioanoi some Karma already!

Circus and Ninja Ork, I am glad that I could help.

Though if anyone is interested in the idea that is not space marines duel-wielding melta-guns like an action hero (though the mental image of a Marine with two meltas does paint an awesome mental image), let me know and I will make a tutorial. Otherwise I'll probably do the same with mine :P .

By all means, I'm still interested in other methods. Being Salamanders, I'm in need of many, many multimeltas. :P
