Walk into the local GW. Inquire about the best possible way to get my hands on sonic blasters. Longs and short of it. You can not buy them any more.
But you can spend 55 dollars per model, so that makes every thing ok. (Before you ask, no I did not hit him.)

Some reason going along the lines of:
"Sonic blasters are specialist equipment that very few people use."

First point. I have never played noise marines where they did not sonic blasters, and I have never seen an army of Noise marines with out them.
I thought they were standard kit that every one paid the 5 points for.

Does any body NOT use them on noise marines?

Any tips where I can get my hands on some would be much appreciated

If you can wait a little longer, the rumour is that GW will be putting out sonic weapon bits packs soon alongside the other bits packs they've been putting together recently.

That intresting.
That gos against what I was told at the store.

So chances are you are right.

If Gw could get paid for stuffing up what they tell customers, then they be the biggest empire in the world.

I never understood why the Emperors Children box only had ONE sonic blaster. When did that ever make sense?

The new bitz catalogue doesn't have them though, just Night Lords and Iron Warriors along with all the legion shoulder pads.

Hopefully Forgeworld will get around to some Emperor's Children at some point and maybe they'll have some decent new noise marines. We have Death Guard and World Eaters on the way... hopefully the Children will be next...

Unit champions with doom siren and a pw/fist are reckoned to be pretty nifty. Drive by flamering marines in cover from a rhino is seen as very nasty if you can pull it off. If they are just gonna be jumping out of a rhino then rapid firing before being charged, theres very little difference between a bolter or a sonic blaster.

As for making sonic blasters;

guitar wire/electrical wire - chop off the ammo clip of a bolter and attach one end there and the other behind the power pack.

Chop off the bolter muzzle(??) and attach either some green stuff, chopped up bits of plastic sprue to give it a longer effect, stick on one of the heavy bolter endings from the chaos tank sprue or a combination of all 3.

Not the best but its made from stuff lying around and hardly costs a thing.

I've done something similar to the above, but i've also heard of a sonic blaster/doom sire/blastmaster bitz pack

I used plasma cannons as dev squads where cheaper then havoc squads I had tons of plasma cannons just sitting around.
