Default another quick question

Do the cadian shock troops boxes of 20 guardsmen come with heavy weapons?

No. They do not.. you must buy Heavy weapon teams seperately..

Trillian is correct, the same goes for the Catachan sets as well. The only way to get a box set with normal guardsmen as well as heavy weapons is to buy the battle force.

the heavy weapon boxes are great though, you get every weapon and the crew, so with a little converting you can get about 8 heavy weapon teams out of the three heavy weps box and the normal guard box

I advise you to buy the Heavy Weapon Platoon box at the same time as the Infantry box. This way, you can build all fifteen Heavy Weapons, rather than being limited to three (or six if you're clever).

well, at my local GW i think the managers trying to get one over on me, he insists that the heavy weapon platoon was a "one off" sale by GW, so i have to buy 3 separate Heavy weapon teams costinf me $66 instead of $55

purchase a troop bo and a hw squad box. you should then put it together as 3 lascannon teams, 3 autocannon teams, 3 heavy bolter teams, and 3 mortar teams. then you wind up saving up to $90 for using the leftover bits

You get three missile launchers too.

What I tend to do is this:

1) Build three tripod guns as normal. Note that you should never fit a loader.

2) Use the bipod mounts to build three more "tripod" guns (eg: lascannon, autocannon or heavy bolter). Use standing Guardsmen as gunners (Heavy Bolters look best on bipod).

3) Use the sandbags to prop up the last three tripod guns, using the last three kneeling models to crew them. If you have any green stuff, use it to expand on the sandbags, it looks better that way.

4) Build the missile launchers on standing models.

5) Build the mortars so they are propped up on something (eg: sandbags, ruins, etc) or have them slung over a soldier's back.

You might need to buy some cavalry or large-round bases to finish the models.
