Default Devilfish Construction Question

How does one go about attaching the burst cannon on the bottom? Glue? It seems like a same to glue someone GW meant to be able to rotate.

EDIT: Also, what is a "Fireknife" Shas'el?

Try your best not to use glue to attach the burst cannon... that way it can rotate freely. just put it together how the instructions show you if you get lost... Sorry I can't give you pictures, digital cam is uploading images wrong and I can't see them.

Hopefully someone who has one working will help out (*wink wink, hint hint*)

And I have know clue what a "Fireknife" Shas'el is...

I actually found a good guide about crisis suit names: http://www.40konline.com/mos/index.p...=1003&Itemid=1

what i did when assembling my devilfish was i put a drop of glue on each of the little circles on the inside of the burst cannon turret, put the burst cannon in place, and attached the top ring so it would be held by the glue but still allow the burst cannon to move. then i turned the devil fish upside down, put the turret in its little ring and put a little glue on the hull right behind it, and place the turret cover over it.
i hope this helps.
sorry if it's a little confusing, but i don't really have a way of posting pictures.

I found that by priming all the pieces of the Burst Cannon separately there was enough resistance to allow it rotate side to side as well as up and down and stay in place once I had chosen a position, though I suppose over time that little bit of primer will wear down and it will no longer move so nicely. :-\ There's a very nice tutorial on magnetizing the front assembly of the Devilfish in the hobby section, which is probably the most professional solution.

And a Fireknife Shas' El is a Crisis suit equipped with a plasma rifle, missile pod, and multi-tracker. A very popular configuration for Crisis suits, but no necessarily an ideal one. There's a tactica somewhere on this site about all the favorite Crisis configurations. "Deathrain" is probably number one, and with good reason.
