Default Where can I get power weapons?

I'm making a Deathwatch team, and I wanted to use quite a few power weapons. Problem is, I don't know where I can get a Space Marine with a power weapon that I can convert into a Deathwatch marine, and where to get space marines or power weapons in numbers. I need 5. Anyone know a good box or model to buy to get these easy?

You can check Ebay for bits. Just type in what you are looking for. Also Devil Squid find this site a while ago and posted this link

www.battlewagon-bits.com

You can get 5-10 bits for like $4-5

Well I would suggest just going to the online store and looking at the bits of the models there is absolutely no better way to find what you need in my experience. Sometime its a bit hard to see but just pay close attention and you can usually find what you want. Plus you can also single out exactly the type of weapon you want as while some boxes like the commander box have a power weapon it may not be what you want. I did some looking and found:

The commander box comes with a power sword, fist, and lightning claw
The command squad comes with a power sword and power fist
The assault squad comes with a power sword, axe and fist

Other than that you can try the Black Templars Upgrade sprue that has a number of power weapons but they are black templar related. And you of course have metal models such as the Emperors Champion and Death Company which has a power weapon. I think you can also find an old close combat weapon sprue that should contain an axe and sword.

I use the Black Templar symbol as my sign (before they came out with a new codex), so the sprue sounds like the best way to go. Either that or that great bitz squad. Anyways, thanks for all the advice everyone!

actually you may want to try the assault marines box. if I remember right you get 5 marines that can either have a jump pak or just running along. you also get a power sword, power axe and powerfist. the only thing you might want to do is buy a heavy bolter guy seperately and you might need to go into your bitz box to get the bolters they are armed with. plus the running look of the legs is so cool. makes converting a unit so much fun.

Go Guard posted the link to my favorite site, Battlewagonbits...you can buy any of the bits from the majority of the Space Marine boxes (even Black templars), so you can order just the powerweapons you need...

And for reasonable prices too.

Look around for old chaos warrior arms (fantasy. Many of them carry appropriate looking weapons to be considered power weapons, and fit well onto a marine, plus they have a skull on the shoulderpad for deathwing.

I find that the GK justicar power sword looks great on any model. The pose of the arm is perfect for action poses. I have on on my Command squad sarge. He looks great.

Take chainswords or anything else, maybe from a chaos player who has plenty of extras since we get them in our boxes unlike loyalists; and simply grind off the spikes from the chainsword; instant "power" weapon.

You can also use sprue framing; to make small spike axes and stuff. Pretty simple if you just use a file and grind it into something sharper and flatter for example.

Cheers!
