Now my Arbites army is nearly finished (yeh right!) I have decided to build a Arbites Gate house which can be dismantled and stored in a KR multi case.

Kit wise I have bought:
2* SI COD buildings and some etc bits (thanks Lord Malorne!)
5* Razorback/preadator hatches
1*Razorback HB turret (need 1 more)

I still need extra weapons.

In the end it will have:
2* HB turrets
4*Grenade launchers
2*Heavy flamers
and maybe a whirlwind launcher.

Here are some pictures, will post up more during the week.

I'm still not a fan of the whirlwind launcher. A pair of missile launchers would be far more appropriate and fitting.

I thought about missile launchers but want an automated look how about:

A hyperios air defense system is fitting and you can use the whirlwind launcher for it. For an automated missile launcher look you could also try Marine hunter-killer missiles with an autoloading system added or simply a bank of them.

I really like that missile turret - and please keep the whirlwind! It fits directly in, and if something feels as though it is missing, then add something gothic or 'techy' to it.

Looks good!
I was thinking though, that the arbites uses 'non lethal' tech a lot. Maybe some firehoses or something? Force field fences?

Why on Earth would the Arbites use non-lethal tech to put down a rebellion? They don't bother with minor crimes like, and I quote, "theft, murder, or tax evasion," they are there to ensure the loyalty of a planetary governer and the PDF as well as ensure that the Imperial tithe is collected on time and in full. That's taken from the Dark Heresy rule book. If the planet rebels, they put it down and if the scope is too large for them, they are the first line, sending out the call and holding until the Guard or Space Marines arrive to properly put the rebels in their place. If you think of the Adeptus Arbites as Commissars for planetary governments, then you'd be on the right track.

Although the Arbites do not hesitate to use lethal force, they also make wide use of non-lethal weapons. To understand why, you need to understand the Arbites mentality:

Death is a sentence. A sentence must follow a guilty verdict. A Guilty verdict must follow a trial. A trial requires a live defendant. So Arbites will often take a proportion of all rebels alive in order to formally determine their guilt in court, retrospectively justifying the execution of all of the ones that are already dead.

Of course, if they are found innocent, then the souls of the departed are shrived and commended to the Emperor for their sacrifice in the name of Imperial Justice.

It's also conceivable that one of their jobs is rescuing hostages, for example, if the planetary government is besieged by dissidents. Why go to the trouble of identifying the aggressors if you can just shoot everyone and sort them out later?

Looking good so far...
If you fancied some electrified fences for extra protection, Quantum Gothic (http://www.quantumgothic.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=14&Itemid=59) do some nice ones. Not too expensive either :)
