Scratchbuild: 40K Autocannon!

Because Havocs with Autocannons are the go-to choice for Chaos Space Marines, that’s all I’ve been using (except when I needed Lascannons against the Necron chariot, woop!).

I didn’t change the weapons, just added the bloated bellies, horns, blisters and such, and used a razor saw to cut the arms off of some of the figures just to make them easier to pack away when needed.

The finished product:
