Chaos Missile Launcher - there's a blip showing a Chaos Marine with what looks like a missile launcher, but my (used) copy didn't actually come with a chaos missile launcher. There's a heavy bolter for the Chaos Commander, and the rest have bolters. Is there supposed to be a Missile Launcher piece for the Chaos Marines?

Also, I can't spot the rules for which heavy weapon it is in the book? Is it just a missile launcher...or are the Chaos Marines supposed to be able to choose any heavy weapon?

Second question; one of my marine Commanders has a weapon tab broken off inside. Does anyone know of a good way to get this tab out, so the other two weapons can fit in? (I'm sure I can then do something to get the broken weapon to stay on when its used).

Thanks for any answers!

I have no idea about the English names for the weapons. In the German version there is one Chaos Marine with a "Holo Werfer" while all others have the laser guns (they renamed everything and changed the descriptions to make them non-lethal weapons).
The "Holo Werfer" is the gun that affects the center square with 2 red die and the surrounding ones with the higher of them. So this is probably your missile launcher.

As far as pulling out goes. Either try to glue the broken stuff together and pull it out that way, or use a hot needle to melt it into the stump and pull it out.

Re: Component Questions; Chaos Missile Launcher, damaged Cap
In my (complete) copy the Chaos marines came with 3 Bolters, 1 Missile Launcher and 1 Heavy Bolter (the Commanders weapon)...
Regarding the stuck tab, I would suggest you get yourself a small hand drill with a 1 or 2 millimeter drill bit and carefully drill out the bit of plastic.....

The game includes a Chaos Marine squad composed of a Commander with heavy bolter, a Marine with missile launcher, and three Marines with bolters. No additional heavy weapons were provided for the Chaos Marine squad.

Or print the various Paper Sci Fi figures available on the net, which is a LOT cheaper.

Check out the wickedly good Skelebots...

Thanks for all the info. My copy, which seems to be Dutch (the original owner thought it was German) had 4 bolters for the Chaos Marines and a heavy bolter for the chaos marine commander. Maybe I'll mode a missile launcher for one of them.

That cheap?
Actually, I think the Space Crusade models look pretty cool already.

I might have an extra missile launcher you can have. If I remember correctly, they all look the same, you would just have to paint it to match. If you want more, i.e., the plasma gun, assault cannon, etc., to give the CMs the same capabilities as the SMs, I may be able to find a few of those.
