Default Where should I put the stubber?

im planning to buy a Marcharius this summer for my Urideshi (Krieg with different name) army this summer after i sell prtty much all of my childhood belongings. I was looking through IA 5 and there is a picture of a Marcharius without the pintle mounted heavy stubber, and it looks far better than any of the other ones.

So here's my delema, there is no tactical sence in not giving the Marcharius, seeing as it can shoot all weapons alwase. But i really hate what it looks like so i dont want to put it on. Does anyone have an idea of where i could put the heavy stubber.

stick it on a command chimera and model your head officer firing it.

Or failing that just save it for those times you go "ah!".

In other words - Save it for a fancy tank you have in mind (a commnd chimera was my example), or if you don't have any planned save it for one that will crop up in the future.

you could always mount it on the left side of the main gun. (it does have a man gun right? I'm not one for super heavies)

You there, pay attention!

JD's suggestion is good; mount it like a coaxial weapon. Similarly, you could mount it in the optics box on the left hand side of the turret.

Alternatively, you could spruce it up a bit with a gunshield from the heavy weapons set (that's what I've done).

i like the idea of putting it co-axialy, i think i like how it lowers the appearance of the tank . So i dont think ill go the route of pimping the stubber out.

thanks

You There, give me those models!

I like the idea of mounting it on the lightbox
