so if you take the salamander's specaial character from c:sm all varieties of flamers and meltas count as twinlinked :D

noa, my question, how could i represent this on my models?
so far the only way ive thought of would be to whack on another barrel of said gun's type, e.g. 2 melta gun nozels on a melta gun

only thing is, this could look like a multimelta and multimeltas would look a little busy

so, agian, how you you represent these guns being twin-linked?


p.s. holding 2 of said weapon would look a little hollywood and cheezy XD

i like it, tho i think it would work better with ig or someone without huge backpacks

also, finding flamers/meltaguns with the trigger and grip would be kinda difficult :/

out of curiosity are you asking because you feel you need to represent it, or because you personally want to?

because you don't need to if you feel you must, as having Vulkan there represents it enough that ANY player must be forced to recognize it.

I was thinking of doing this a while ago and thought the only feasible way of doing it was to make each flamer/melta weapon look like its Master-Crafted and has attatched sights etc where possible.

But thats just another way of going about it.

Meltas look great with all the fluff on them.

i think i may have to go with beaumont on this one guys, it would fit well with the grand-ness (word?) im planning for these marines.

thanks buddy :p

p.s. im not starting this project until september so this is all research as i want to do it properly XD


p.p.s. how could i go about master-craft-ifying (word!) a melta/flamer other than just painting it gold?

When I started my salamanders I decided to make my swords look 'master crafted' to represent their blacksmithing culture. I did this by making them reallllly big.

I'm not saying this is the best idea, but they definitely stand out, so i would recommend moving the barrels about, making them longer, adding extra gubbins - basically anything which makes them appear different to the standard item.

Another idea is to use bits from the Lizardman sets to add scales or salamander heads to your guns.

Just make your 'home' objective maker a box of additional meltas and flamers?

I'm sure the Space Marines would offer teenagers work experience running weapons around the field.
