Djinn24 1 looks the best but you thin. 2 and 3 are your best bets. To me 3 says cannon round to me.

What loyalist said, defs option 2. I think I've seen option 1 around the place and yea they are a little too small I think.

dirty-dog- the one from armour cast would definitely dictate more of a autocannon round.

But then again, the flexible ones will add variety and would probably be a superior product.

Ddraig Cymry 2. Bendable resin should be more resilient than pewter I'd think.

VanAlberict id go with 2
plenty of different sizes to pick from so you find the right one for what you want plus its still flexible

ammo belt size

Hi fellow heretics. i plan on buying some ammo belts that will be attached to my chaos havoc's assault cannons (proxy for autocannons, i think the assault cannons look way more badass).

Now, i've spotted 3 potential kits:
- The first one, molded in pewter (and therefore bendable), is from dragonforge. width: 4.5 mm
- The second is from zinge productions, in flexible resin, with a metal wire in it that allows posing as well. The latter comes as a sprue with a variety of belts, and the one i'm interested in is the one on the far right. The size indicated on the site is 5.6mmx 2.5mm
- The third one is from armorcast, in pewter as well. I like its crude look and the size looks reasonable

What do you think would be the best bet? Especially keeping in mind the size of the rounds in comparaison to the plastic autocannon model (the one from the land speeder)? I don't want the ammo to look too much thin, it is an assaul CANNON after all, not an assault machine gun. But i'm afraid that the biggest option (n.2) might look a bit overscaled.

Any suggestion and help is welcome
