DS8 Tactical Support Turrets - Making Them From Scratch

Post#1 » Oct 12 2016 09:03

Hello, ATT!

I have 48 of the old Fire Warrior models and am not too keen to purchase more for the support turrets. I have enough weapons bits to represent either the SMS or the Missile Pod, but can someone share a link to a scratch-built support turret or share pictures of one that they've done?

Thanks!

A quick search "DS8 proxy" would have taken you to this thread :roll:

These will also be available from my shapeways in a couple days if you're not interested in a scratch build.

Please share the link when they are available for sale. I would much rather purchase professionally made items than kit bash.

Thank you for the link and rolling eyes. I did search for "DS8 Conversion", but there are several pages with the word "DS8" and "Conversion" on them. Surprisingly, "DS8" and "Conversion" show up in many threads. I didn't think to include the word "proxy" because I'm not looking for a proxy, I'm looking to build one.

Careful with your wording. I've deleted the redundant post, but we are legitimately trying to help. Please keep attitudes in check.

TBH, I used the "proxy" word just because "conversion" was a little too long to type and "count-as" needed to switch my phone keyboard for the dash ... So I had a better luck than you (and rolled eyes) ;). Sorry you didn't found the good thread in your first research.

AgentArrow turret thread was out of scope because you had bits to use, so I didn't added it as suggestion (but you may want to have them as they are a more smart design than GW turrets).
