Looking for some "alternative" TL Autocannons for Dreadnaughts/Sentinels.

Anyone got any ideas?

What do you mean by 'alternative'?

Do you mean conversion ideas or 3rd party bits?

I am currently taking commissions.

Sentinels can't take TL autocannon (unfortunately).

Otherwise, Puppetswar certainly do several things that could be used. They have fancy dreadnought TLAC and they have an AA gun mount that could be re-purposed.

Ramshackle games also do a rather nice AA ground mount with weapons that are patently designed to be dreadnought arms.

There is also the old fall back of the Aegis line Quad Gun or just lots of Guard autocannon strapped together. If you're only after 1 of them this last method can also be used quite effectively with the normal dreadnought TLLC arm, with some minor mods to make it look more RFAC like and less HEL like.

Old Crow used to sell these awesome RFAC barrels as well, but I think the owner is busy with other things just now. You might be abel to e-mil him directly though and ask for them.

Yeah, 3rd party companies...

Was trying to be subtle, since GW intend on taking over the world of miniature gaming and they're watching... ALWAYS WATCHING.

Oh, I know Sentinels can't take 'em, but my Ordo Hereticus homebrew won't be using Dreads, so I intend to take Sentinels as count-as units.
Think it'll look better that way...

I don't think I've been sig'd before.. odd experience

Also I can definately recommend using Sentinel legs and chassis for counts-as dreadnoughts. I've done a couple myself and I think they look much better than the stubby-legged box of the normal model.

I did a TLAC on one of mine made up from Predator HB sponsons and the old metal sentinel AC. It works rather well, I think, in a more distributed mode, rather than having both guns on one side.

I've never had any issues other than long waits from FP. Others have had major issues though. Just watch your 45 day window if you use Paypal.
I will say the items I got were worth the wait. Nice work.
