Sorry, but no. Their hellguns do have a higher Ap than a lasgun as standard but you cant upgrade a hellgun.

that was an old thing called a "hot-shot" pack. not any more sigh. whyd they have to take away all our goodies? (like griffons and other devices of lethal cunning)

Don't worry about the weak hellguns - they can still kill orks, nids, and eldar!

If you want some punch, go and grab 2 plasma guns... 2 rapid firing plasma guns can melt almost anything you want!

Yeah, okay you MAY melt yourself. But meh... he died in te line of duty!

You really ought to be able to upgrade a Stormie to a medic...they are, after all, largely self-sufficient.

i like that idea. while we're at it give em a hvy weapon option... the old beret wearing guys with the hotshot lasguns had a hvy bolter model. charge more points for it than a regular inf squad... i think we might just have to house-rule that medic thing.

While I don't like the idea of giving 'Stormies a heavy weapon (they're STORM troopers, not line troopers.), I do like the idea of a medic. Such an elite force (fluff-wise) really ought to have one on hand. The hot-shot lasgun packs sound like a good idea, too. I've read about them in some BL novels... Maybe it could justify those huge-arse power packs 'Stormies wear....even though a normal pack is, from what I've read, pretty much the same size as a standard one....

There's a rule in the Inquisitor rulebook, for Triplex Phall pattern lasguns/hellguns, they use more "ammo" but have a 30% or so damage increase, basically str 4 weapons, pretty cool if you ask me

On the other hand, there are some "Executioner shells" for the shotguns, Ap-less storm bolters, basically
Heck, i would love to use those little thingies on my Adeptus arbites !(Inquisitorial flavoured stormies)

I agree. Storm Troopers with boltguns, that would just rock. As it stands, against most opponents (ie marines) they're just BS4 guardsmen when they fire.
