Okay so I am making mad money now, so I want to make a nam style drop guard with loads of valkaries, vultures, and some lightnings for flavour. Now Im going to use the plastic guard, but I want to replace the lasgun with something that looks like a m-16, or at least a modernish gun. Does anyone have any idea where I can get something like that? I live in Canada, but im willing to ship it in.

Thanks for the help.

Might I recommend these miniatures (http://www.chilternminiatures.co.uk/html/vietnam_war.html)?

Edit: If you don't like those miniatures there is the line from West Wind Productions (http://www.westwindproductions.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=26_78).

That would be the only place I can think of where you can get the weapons. Part of the style is the uniforms and you'd not do the force any justice. That's my opinion so take it for what it's worth. Also GW is not the only miniature manufacturer and if they don't make something you can use another companies miniatures with 40K in friendly games.

if your doin a Nam based army, i better be seeing a Col. Kurtz in there somehwere leading a group of warrior weapon armed savages! if you can find the rules you can count him as a sly marbo, with a shaved head.

"did they tell you, willard....why...they wanted to terminate my command?"

"they said....you have gone....completely insane"

Or you could simply use the Autogun that GW makes for its Necro range. Although outfitting an entire guard army would be pricey...

Check my sig for the link to my gallery of models and you'll see some WIP pics of my guard. They use the GW autoguns with Space Marine scopes added on. If you like the look of that you can get them on a sprue for I think $4 each.
