Hi I bought a Commissar armed with a flamer and in the armoury you can't buy a flamer

I do belive, that you have bought an older addition of said commissar. I elive that in third edition, you could have them with a flamer.

No worry though, a little conversion should do the trick.

BUZZ! Wrong.. that model is SO out-dated it is from 2nd edition.. and the weapon in question is a long dead.. inferno pistol. a weapon that hasn't been available since 2nd edition.. GW NEEDS to make new commissars... BADLY!

If the weapon in question doesn't look entirely like a current flamer, then call it a plasma pistol. Or cut/file/bend/add pieces on it so it's totally unrecognizeable as a stock weapon, and then you can call it whatever you want, so long as your opponent is clear on what it is at the start of the game.

Where ever you picked that up must get newer stock!

But yes it was an inferno pistol and surprisingly it does look like a master crafted plasma pistol if you really wanted

The model in question is armed with a Hand Flamer... a weapon currently only available to the Eldritch Raiders.

Count it as a Bolt Pistol... how in the hell a Str 4 Ap 5 weapon could represent Plasma is beyond me. :

I personally am a fan of the 'shave it down till it looks like something you can use' school of thought on this one... i wonder if the sculptor is crying now... sorry... whoever you are....

that is NOT an inferno pistol and how dare you mislead! this is a 2nd ed. flamer as can be seen on many old 'clasic' 40k models back when flamers looked like blowtorchers instead of cigarette lighters... i too bought this flamer comissar (the cool axe lookin guy).... but couldnt use him with the army... this is just dumb writing on the part of the Emperor... but i put my guy in a vice and smooshed the end off the flamer, then took a lil' modelling knife to cut off it's fuel tank... and suddenly this commie had a boltpistol and a big angry lookin axe.
