[Archive] Alternative Magma Cannon

brother_cov:

Im just starting out building a LoA Chaos Dwarf army and the budget just does not run to purchasing all the models I want from the FW store, ie:

Iron Daemon (Cannonade)

Iron Daemon (Skullcracker)

Magma Cannons x 2

Infernal Guard x 60

Bale Taurus

Therefore I have been looking at cheaper ways of representing the Magma Cannons using existing Warhammer dwarf models, ie Classic Metal Flame Cannons.

is this a viable option (with conversion work, obviously) or is the size a problem?

Any advice offered would be gratefully received.

thanks

Should be fine, no size issue for a regular flame cannon

I bought the dwarven flame cannon from the Mantic range and then drilled a hole in a spare juggernaught head and attached it for a daemonic look, its alot smaller than the forgeworld model but is the same size as the other gw dwarven artillery.
