What weapon do you prefer for your Inquisitorial Acolytes?


Peace may cost less than war, or infinitely more, for war cannot cost more than one's own life.

Bolters for points, plasma for power levels.

What do you guys use for your bolters and stormbolters? I’d love to find some bolters with extra handles or straps for regular acolytes to hold.

I just use space marine arms without the shoulder pad. The little shoulder thing becomes a pretty nice human sized shoulder pad.

I have 20 acolytes to arm and I want to thank you all for your reassuring responses: I was about to equip them with Bolters when I thought I'd hold off a bit and see if the community had an idea which hadn't occurred to me. Bolters it is!

I use storm bolters, they hit on a 4+ and are supposed to soak wounds for your inquisitor so they shouldn't be holding anything pricey in my opinion. Regular bolters are fine as well, but sense acolytes miss 50% of the time I like higher number of dice the storm bolter puts out so they have a higher percentage of doing damage. 

 

As far as models go like stated above I use regular space marine arms without sholder pads. Grey Knight arms with storm bolters do a good job, and cheap tact marine arms do the same for regular boltguns.

I believe anvil industry has some decent storm bolters (http://anvilindustry...tols/Double-Tap) although I've not used them. I use space marine bolters with Cadian arms myself, or scout arms/bolters. As with others the bolter or Storm bolter load out are the most cost effective. Although in power level games I like to go crazy with funky fluffy combos like power maul and needle pistol for the non-lethal stun/capture load out, combi weapons for cool factor, etc.
