Default Crisis Weapon Combo's - help please?

Can somebody give me the rundown on the weapons that go along with the crisis suit names. I keep seeing and hearing names like Sunforge and Fireknife and I have no idea what weapons they are talking about. Can somebody help me please? thanx

Sorry, got sloppy and missed the search result, thank you for the link. Thats exactly what I needed. Where did those names come from anyway, or was it just slang?

What is IIRC? Good job on the 900th post ;D! I got if off this website, this is probably the coolest conversion I have ever seen! I just had to have it and to all, this is where I will give credit for the pic and fig; http://magitor.blog.tv2.hu/. It is the fourth image down. Otherwise go to image.google.com and search "necron lord" and it should be on the first page. Enjoy

No problem. Are there any other armies or ubits in the game that are named like that or even in a generaly similar way? That just sounds cool, saying it and fluff wise "Crisis Unit Helios 1 engaged, approaching target now. Ohh S***, hes turning, he's on top of us, fire NOW, ssshooowwwuuummmmpppp. Target defeated, hes nothing but a melted pile of slag boys..." Thats just fun to say. Makes me bubbly inside! Wow thats so sad, forgive the, the, the, idk... :P

I've heard of both the railhead and the ionhead(hammer head w/ the respective weapon) but they show no creativity. I like the warfish though. I will have to come up with some names for the some space marine squads. Maybe something like this;

Devastator Heavy Weapons
Heavy Bolter - Torrent
Missile Launcher - Eclipse
Plasma Cannon - Lightning
Lascannon - Spear
Multi-Melta - Sun Fury

Heavy Bolters/Lascannons - Cloud Burst
Heavy Bolters/Missile Launchers - Tornadoe
Heavy Bolters/Plasma Cannons - Lightning Storm
Heavy Bolters/Multi-Meltas - Firewall

Lascannons/Missile Launchers - Boom Squad
Lascannons/Plasma Cannons - Lightning Strike
Lascannons/Multi-Meltas - Inferno Cannon(yes, i know, already a weapon. Whats something else I coud use?)

Missile Launchers/Plasma Cannon - Thunder Strorm
Missile Launchers/Multi-Meltas - Blacksun

Plasma Cannons/Multi-Meltas - Igniters


IDK, I may have to play around with these. In the mean time I think I will start a new thread in the SM forum.
