Default Re: A question on older model bolters

Um... I've seen a few, but they're older models. They might be available from the GW online store in the Classic Range?

Hey, an old-school Luna Wolf! His bolter simply has a belt feed. According to the Inquisitor game, that&#39;s a MkIII. If you want those without heavy conversion, I believe that Chaos Space Marine have &#39;em. Try checking BWBits for them.

Here:

For giving them to your Loyalist marines, just shave off the little Chaos symbols on the side and you&#39;ll be good to go. You can try attaching the little brass Aquilas from Forgeworld if you want, but its not necessary.

Hope this helps.

That&#39;s a Mk II Bolter, with all decals smoothed off and a chain-fed piece attached.


Don&#39;t bother with Titankiller&#39;s link, it&#39;s flat out wrong. It is not a Chaos Bolter you&#39;re looking for. You might be able to salvage the chain-feeds from Chaos Bolters, but I wouldn&#39;t bother trying.

That&#39;s the Bolter you want... sort of. The Sister of Battle is holding a Mk II Bolter. They used to be Plastic.

Your best bet is eBay, but I doubt you&#39;ll have much luck...


Alternatively, you could try ordering some of these Space Marine Bikes. They used to come with a sprue of three Old School Bolters, backpacks and six shoulder pads.

Wargamer: quick FYI, I&#39;m titankiller, not TauKiller. :P That&#39;s someone else. Also, the Chaos ones are just the first thing I thought of when seeing the belt-feed.

The bike sprue has been updated, its now all self contained. It no longer includes the old school bolters.

Also Wargamer, referring to someone&#39;s post as "Flat out wrong" when they were being sincerely helpful and providing a feasible solution is rather rude. Especially when you don&#39;t get their name right.

I feared as much, to be honest.

And so is giving false information. Frankly, people who can&#39;t tell the difference between model-editions should simply not reply.

As for the name, yeah, I got it wrong. I only glanced it for .3 of a second.

Its cool, I was just pointing out the name. But also, I pointed out the Chaos bolters because he wants easy conversions, and that&#39;s what came to mind.

True, though I really don&#39;t think it would work. I mean, the Mk II has bigger clips... it&#39;d look messy.

Now, the "Drum Feed" looks good (you can nick them off Ork Shootas), but if you want chain-fed Bolters then you really have to use a Mk III. You could, if you&#39;re really lucky, use a Mk I, though you may be hanged for damaging a sacred relic.

I dunno about the old plastic versions but you could try to find the Legion of the Damned bolters, those are the older style and some aren&#39;t too heavily modified, then cut the chain feed off of a chaos bolter to replace the clip and it should look alright. The only real annoyance is that the LotD bolters are metal.

This is a link to the Legion of the Damned models, gun sprue A has a bolter that is untouched enough to be easy to convert with.
