Default Linked weapons on a model...

GW are such rip offs, only one of each weapon, yet they give a twin link option.

I'm one of the peopl that ove the TL plasma and missile pod combo, its virtually all I take, atleast, against my regular necron and space marine opponents... I like monat single suits, shas'vre and hardwired systems.

Yet, one it comes to the model, wheres the plasma rifle?? I've got to buy loads of other suits to get the extra guns because GW only give you 1 plasma rifle on a sprue, etc.

What do you guys do to get twin linked weapons? order more suits, or has anyone got some ingenious idea?

You get the weapon sprue included with Broadsides... which obviously have no use for any of the weapons. Therefore most people farm their additional Plasma and Missiles from them. If you don't have any Broadsides, you can trade/buy bitz from friends or perhaps even order individual sprues from GW bitz order.

yeah, eBay has SO much stuff you're pretty much guaranteed to find results for plasma and missile pod sprues.

You can't buy extra sprues - a crisis sprue is a complete crisis suit.

That's what I did. I run 3 or 4 suits, and I bought like 7 or 8 of them. Got some in a deal from a friend.

The new "commander" sprue might have extra weapons on it, but maybe not.
