Default Homemade Cyclic Ion Blaster

Being the cheap one I am, I decided to build up my own CIB instead of spending the time and money to get the bit from the Warstore. This is what I ended up with: (The crisis suit is nowhere near any stage of completion, just focus on the gun)





Someone pointed out that it looks more like the Airbursting Fragmentation Projector. Should I just leave this as the AFP and make another CIB?

Edit: I'm gonna use the above as the Projecter, the below as the Blaster:

I actually made a AFP today also, its a Devilfish Burst cannons w/ the barrels removed, and in their place are three Tau flamer barrels (minus the pilot lights). Then I put some camera bitz and scopey things on it and it looks damn good slung under a Crisis suits arm

@ Foxxy
Cool CIB (the 2nd one)
I think you could've just ordered it given how many good weapons you mangled used

Off-topic: Do you just love Blue-Tac ???? Or what :huh:? Glue doesn't look blobby on models after painting... and my Crisis weapons never have a problem staying on ...

Both weapons look really good. I like both suits. The conversion gets the job done well and they look like what they are supposed to be. The next part is painting it.

Blue-tac is awesome for holding together models without having to glue them. I always clean them up and glue then afterwords, the bluetac is only ever temporary.

for mine i converted a burst cannon with four carbine bits between the rods (only the stubs) and because i only use one of them (CIB or AFP) at a time i use it to represent whatever gun im using that day

Me or Foxxy?

I was just making a point; I'm poor so I don't chop up XV-8 weapons on a whim
