Default where can i get autoguns

does anyone know where i could get autoguns for my guard without spending three dollars for each metal one on the GW site. I know that forgeworld has the traitors with autoguns, but the arms look to chaosy.

Your best bet is probably converting them out of whatever lasgun you have, such as adding a bolter magazine and adding a more "fitting" barrel to the model.

This is just another thing GW forgot.
To give the option to change the Lasgun into a Autogun (As they are so Badass.)

You could use the Lasguns available from Forge World' s vehicle accessories collection. They're not autoguns as such, but they're similar. The price tag is little more acceptable, but you'll have something pretty unique at the end of it. Perhaps they'd be suitable for your veterans?

Where did you see autoguns for sale individually though? I've only ever seen them attached to metal models. I'd like to get some myself.

Are there any tutorials on converting lasguns to Autoguns?

I went with the 3 dollor option getting the "Basic Weapon Sprue" from the GW online store.

I ordered the Basic Weapon sprue from Necromunda twice. They seem to fit my [size=3pt]traitor[/size] Guard very well. And they're not that expencive. They're 2.50 for 7 weapons, some of them are shotguns, and about 2 of them are autoguns. Here's a link.

If you don't want these, I would convert the lasguns.
Here's one conversion of a guy called schoolcormorant from WarSeer;


cheers.

Outstanding, thanks for the link, Pfreck.

That's an ace conversion...I think I'm gonna have to do that if I ever get any regular Guardsmen. At the moment I've just got tanks, Stormies and Elysian drop troops, but I'm sure regular Guardsmen are in my future somewhere. It looks so chunky and impressive...perhaps it'd make an appropriate alternative Hellgun for custom stormies?

Thats not a Autogun, thats a Bolt Rifle!

Personally I like the lazgun, better than an Autogun. Autoguns are noisy, heavy, spray hot metal and have recoil. A lazgun however can fire though glass windows, work underwater, has no recoil and is stealthy.

All those complaints you have about autoguns are pretty much the very same reasons most people do like them! I love 'em because I see combat as a very brutal affair that's all about metal meeting flesh. Autoguns are down to earth, violent and intimidating looking weapons. Elysians are high-tech as far as IG go, so they can keep their spiffy bullpup lasguns. But, to me, regular Joe IG infantry are supposed to be the rugged and simple sort and autoguns just carry that kind of image.
