Default Making cheap Gue'vesa


I want to use a troop of Gue'vesa's in my army but I can't find a way that they would be cheaper ( in to buy them) then a normal FW squad :-\ and I really don't want to waste to much money, as I am only a student.

I've tried the search function and nothing came up :-X ... or I didn't search hard enough :P

Any tips on how I could get my hand on cheap Gue'vesa's? >

Sure thing mate. A common way is to buy a box of Imperial Guard Troops, either Catachans or Cadians as you will get more soldiers for your buck than a box of Fire Warriors. Then you just convert these guys with some of the Tau pieces left over from your Fire Warrior Sprues as you wish to make your Gue'vesa. Check out the Games Workshop Website and the Tau section too for some great ideas,

I don't even bother to convert them too much other than the ones with pulse rifles/carbines... i just file off any imperial eagles (on helmets and guns and such) and then paint them up.

Does anyone else exclusively give their guevesa pulse carbines? i've never given mine anything but carbines, both for fluff and because i deploy them in the front of my army, so they have a chance to pin an enemy easier farther away from my FWs

Well you only get two pulse weapons per squad. Pulse rifles outrange lasguns quite a bit, don't they? I imagine carbines would be more useful, if you take any pulse weaponry.

You can only have two (three with GV'Ui?) pulse weapons per squad, and with the mass of Ld10/Fearless models Carbines are not that usefull anyway - give pulse rifles (which only have a 1/4 range extention over lasguns btw) if you must give pulse weapons, otherwise just tank up on EMP grenades for suicide runs.

The cheapest way is to get a Cadian box if you plan on fielding alot, and throw in spare bits from FW sprues.

1 Markerlight and 2 pulse rifles makes one cheap, annoying unit.

well, the space marines can... read the inquisition rules (they can spit acid). It's just that everything ain't in 40k rules, a lot's found in the specialist games
