A sign you have to much Warhammer 40k!

I made a post on Dakka Dakka a year ago about 10 signs that you have too much Warhammer found here. I was inspired to write it  after it took me 3 hours to find my Yriel figure.

Now here is my new entry:

I was wondering what a conversion beamer looks like (I had no idea) and after Googling it I came across this image on the inter-webs:

When I saw it I said “Hey, I think I have one of those!"

After doing some rummaging around through my bitz I found this:
It is funny that I have had this piece for about 20 years and I always wondered what it was.  I always thought it was a purestrain genestealer weapon bit. It is nice to know that I have something that is very rare, and something that I need!

Edit: I found out where it came from. I looked it up in the Stuff of Legends website (it is where they list all of the old GW minis) and I found it is from the 1991 GW catalog:  The Chaos Heavy Weapon Sprue


  1. Awesome :) Always wondered that myself :)

  2. Holy crap! What sprue is that from?

    Also: EXCELLENT find, even if it is the "chaos" version. :)

  4. That sprue did come with Genestealer hybrids too. I have one or two of them. I used the Conversion Beamer or Owen did on an old plastic ork. You used to be able to roll them randomly...
