View Full Version : Leman Russ Vanquisher cannon conversion

05-07-2009, 12:53 PM
I've just found out that the new Leman Russ set will not be having the new Vanquisher variant :( and now I need to find a way on how to make one. Alternatively, I could buy one from Forgeworld but their prices are just too ridiculously high (considering the exchange rates). I'm thinking of getting 2 normal Battle Cannons, cutting em up a bit then sticking em together. No too sure it'll work but its a plan. Anyone got any ideas?

That is indeed a solution, though perhaps a tad expensive unless you can get the barrel seperate. There are several other solutions:

- Cities of Death pipes, these come in two parts as well and fit quite well on a Russ. Additional it should be way easier to trade a few of those pieces compaired to a full full barrel.
- Ye olde DIY-store should have tons of different size tubing for great prizes. Add some plasticard of just the plastic of a water bottle (alright more or less the right curves) and you have a pretty convincing barrel (extension).

I guess that could do.

I guess that could do, sounds resourceful and easy.

I'd just go to the hobby store and buy some plastic or brass tube that is the same size and cut and extend the barrel.
