Accessories sold separately

One of the fun thing about 40K is that you have weapon options for some of the figures/models. This allows you to optimise a force for a mission (which frankly, is what you expect a 'modern' force like the Space Marines to do), and is frankly fun from a modelling point of view. With the aid of rare-earth magnets, one can expand the number of options one can field without having to paint a separate figure for each option.

A Cyclone Missile-launcher made from a Sentinel Missile-launcher.



My Dreadnought fitted as a Hellfire-pattern Dreadnought with twin-linked lascannons and missile-launcher. The lascannon arm was made using the armature from the AT-43 Kolossus and the cannons from a Leman Russ bits and some plasticard. The missile-launcher is from a Stormraven.
The Dreadnought with (count-as) twin-linked autocannon and (count-as) twin-linked heavy-flamer.

Neat idea and the plastic bits are probably much cheaper to get hold of.

Yes, the "real" parts can be quite expensive.

the lascannon seems to be missing something behind though

It's a new design - all the power cables are hidden inside the arm...
