Default Getting more plasma rifles

What would be the best way to go about getting more plasma rifles for my suits? I've noticed that they only come with one per box and I play marines alot so I would like to have more. They only come with the battle suit sprue which is alot of money. Is there a cheap way of getting these? Thanks in advance.

You could try askin GW for a look in there bits box,or you could go on GW web site and buy the sprue you get the weapons with or if you are skilled with green stuff you could make one.
Hope it helps

the problem with buying the sprew is that the crisis suit comes on one sprew so it costs the same as a crisis.

If I'm not mistaken you get one with each broadside as well and unless you happen to put plasma on them as well you get extras there

I don't have a Broadside yet, and I was just wondering, but shouldn't they come with 2 plasma rilfes? The only option to use them is twin linked, and only getting one seems a little stupid.

Crimson: They only give you one per broad side which is a real bummer. I think it's really stupid how GW never gives you enough to take all the options. Oh well, if it weren't illegal to make molds I'd do that... but as it stands...

I play against marines alot too. I have one suit with twin-linked plasma, then the other 2 guys have 2 fusion guns representing plasma guns- You can't buy a separate sprue, a crisis suit is considered 1 sprue. So its a proxy like thing but I'm consistant. I'm not paying $40.00 so my crisis suits are GW compliant.

I got 5 battle suit, I have 3 with TL missile pods, 2 with TL plasma and a broad side.

That gives me 6 of each weapon, thats more then enough for a 500 pt army.(I cant use the broad side but I still have it)
