Default Plasma guns, where to get them?

Hi folks

I have decided to start space marines as my secondary army, (the first one being Tau), and decided that I wanted to equip a few with Plasma guns (not pistols), what boxes are they included in?

I currently have the marines from the Battle for Macragge" box, A SM commander box (has some combi-weapons but no "pure" plasma gun), the old Devastator box(metal weapons), a Dreadnought and 2 bikes.

Where to get those plasma guns?

Don't they come in the Devastator Squads?

Cannons come in the Dev box. Guns come in the 10x marine box. The commander box comes with at least 1 plasma pistol.

However!

You could do what I did and take extra plasma pistols and flamers to make plasma guns. It's very similar to an IG conversion I saw.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Consider purchasing plasmaguns individually from a website. Such as battlewagonbitz. (closed for now?)

Much cheaper then buying an entire tactical squad for one plasmagun.

Battlewagon Bitz is closed permanently, but the War Store has picked up their stuff and sell bitz now. They sell single plasma guns here:

Hope that helps!

Thanks titankiller, I&#39;ll buy a tactical squad after all as I will probably need more than 10 SM&#39;s in the end, but I&#39;m bookmarking that store for later, I&#39;m guessing I migth need other SM bitz later.
