You mean Infernus Pistols right? Death Company (2) and Sanguinary Guard (1).

If you want 9 you may be better off making your own using bolt pistols and replacing the barrel.

Don't let people fool you, you can make a lot of great Inferno Pistols using Kroot Rifles. Give me a minute to get a picture of my Seraphim. :)

EDIT: Seraphim Picture (http://coldsteelwarriors.com/40k_images/26082001/seraphim4.jpg). Picture is a bit blurry, but more are in my Sisters of Battle plog (see signature).

A bit of minor work involved, but it's simple enough for anybody to do. Here is a little simple step by step.

Step One (http://www.coldsteelwarriors.com/40k_images/20121122/step1.jpg) Cut your Kroot Rifle off the sprue.

Step Two (http://www.coldsteelwarriors.com/40k_images/20121122/step2.jpg) Cut away the areas in red.

Step Three (http://www.coldsteelwarriors.com/40k_images/20121122/step3.jpg) Carefully glue the bits together to assemble your new Inferno Pistol. For a shorter pistol you can cut away a piece of the muzzle where it meets the main body of the weapon, which I think I did on some of the others in my Sisters plog.

This will be a much cheaper and better looking alternative to the big and bulky efforts GW sell, in my own humble opinion. However I can't take credit for this conversion, I saw somebody did it on WitchHunter.ce (which has no closed down) and copied their design.

Hope that helps.

Nope, Kroot only come with one weapon option in the box as far as I know, which means you get plenty of them.

That's an excellent conversion although I would cut the stock a little further back, because with a bit of filing you would have a nice rounded knob at the end of the handle.

@Kieranhoare
It's using the loose rifle from the set, rather than the ones with arms molded on that people actually use, so I bet there are loads of those spare if you ask around friendly tau players... if there's any such thing... :shifty:
