Hi everyone!
Recently i've got some old school metal grey knights that i was looking to turn into a loyalist chapter but decided to convert them to word bearers along side my guardsmen conversions to run them as cultists with autoguns. (Maybe use the scouts in heresy games)

So far i have converted 8 termies (khorne be praised) to use them as termies, coryphaus and a sorcerer, and a plastic pa guy to use as my dark apostle.

But then i have the normal guys with storm bolters.
So i wanted to ask you all, ¿is there a unit on the chaos codex that uses combi bolters or something similar so i can convert those minis?

Also, ¿do you guys have any suggestions on what else get for the army?

Cheers!

The storm bolters as combi-bolters would be good for Chosen, and though it would be a cheap and semi-effective loadout there are probably better ways to arm them.

 

That being said, I find the idea of 5 combi-bolters and a maybe heavy bolter to be very cool! Word Bearers are an awesome army, and if the morale buff is gonna help anyone it's smallish units with decent to good leadership.

Thanks mate!
So only chosen can use them?
That squad seems perfect to be extra shooty that way

Well, any squad champion that can take equipment from the champion equipment list can take one, but the only power armored unit on foot where multiple models can take combi-bolters is chosen, as far as I remember.

Khornate Grey Knights. Just as Ward intended :P

If you don't want to use your storm bolter/combi bolter GKs as Chosen, you could just mete one out to each squad and use him as a champion leading a smattering of 'common' Word Bearers.

Cool army idea.


Corruption is our armor. Infection is our weapon. Immortality is our reward.
