Steel Legion Meltaguns

The starting mini for the meltagunner conversion is the same as for the flamer. The arms are again converted from Empire Militia spares. The tricky bit to source are the meltaguns. GW sells metal meltaguns as bitz. They are scaled for Space Marines and so look a bit bulky in the hands of the Steel Legion. Alternatively a meltagun could be scratch built. One of the meltaguns was in fact scratch built using the vented mussel of a space marine melta but ultimately this was too much like hard work for the subsequent conversions. The Death Korps of Kreig weapons set from Forgeworld suppplies an appropriately scaled if expensive alternative and so were used for the remaining 2 conversions.
