Yeah, that's the Heavy Bolter from the Space Marine Scouts box. I'd only noticed recently that there were no sleeves on it like with the other scout arms, so I did a little kitbashing. I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out.The Scout arms were made for a slightly wider body than a Catachan's so I filled in the gap with a little bit of sprue, which I then filed down until I had the right shape.
Also, I figured since Harker's hard enough to be S4 in close combat, I slapped a sheathed Scout combat blade onto his back. I think it looks suitably badass for a Catachan.
I'm also stripping the Scout sprues of their shotguns, and using them for my Veteran Squad. Still not sure what I shoult have as the loadout for my 3 special weapons. Anti-tank shooty with meltas? Or anti-infantry with flamers?
As for the Scouts, they're most certainly not going to waste. I'll be look to try out a small squad of combat scouts. At 100pts, that's a 5-man squad, including a Sgt with a powerfist.
100pts for an outflanking powerfist? Sounds interesting enough to me... More pics to follow as these wee devils get painted...
