as u can see i cut the front off and revursed it and glued it back on and i cut the elbow off and made a make shift one form the ST that i choped up for the enhance senses customization and i covered the fingers wiht green stuff and filed all the gaps .. i jsut hope it hold ans looks good whne painted .... u have to admit pretty good for a new guy and a first try

Sure you can, just stick two of them together...

waht do u mean by stick 2 of them together?... they are all one sided .... kinda looks like carp ... any way to get one for left and one for right ?

Cutting the arms up and repairing with green stuff can do it, but if you are not confident about that, then no, unfortunatley there are no other sided gun pieces. Not just a problem for nids tho, nearly every model in the game holds its gun right handed, and most CC weapons are left handed. Can be annoying.

Also, you can just glue two guns on the same figure. That's why they have 4 arms sockets...

I just cut the barrels off, and then glued 2 back on making them double barrled. They look gay without any HtH wepons (I used scything talons, but they dont count as such)

Here's how I did it.
I'll freely admit to having been pretty talentless with Greenstuff at the time but the result is still a lot better looking that 2 guns on one side. I just used the empty arms socket to send a "vein" to the back of the devourer. It makes some fluff sense since it's a symbiote. On a Dakkafex I just greenstuffed the back of the devourer into a tail that wrapped around the fex's arms and tried to make a small head on the top of it. It's as if the gun is a separate creature that a fex carries into battle.

The pictures didn't come out too good but you get the idea. I think the old west gunfighter setup is the best looking of all.

How about this:
Take the weapon sprue, get the spinefist left upper arm plus the Devourer right lower arm and glue them together (clipping the surplus parts off). Nobody will notice that the fingers are weird.

lol .... well i am currently working on it now and basically what i did was try to make the middle part of the deathspitter look the same on the top and bottom, so i can cut the front of it off and the back elbow of it off and reverse the parts so the eye is facing outwards and they look the same when mounted....

when i get a camera and when the green stuff dries ill post a pick of what i did and you guys can tell me what u think ...
