Hi folks, I was wondering if anyone has found weapon packs or spures that would work for figure converion projects? I got some squads I am working on but have not found weapons that match the Dust worl weapons. Only a pack of old (1990 GW) warhammer 40k weapon pack has a few that may work. any ideas or web sites?
weapons for conversion kits and figures

You could look at 1:48 model kits. The DUST models are based on advancing actual WW2 equipment, so the rifles, etc, are close enough to be recognizable. A StG 44 has a narrower magazine than the StG 47, and has a stock, but is the same basic design. A panzerfaust still looks like a panzerfaust. The MG 42 looks like a slimmer MG 48. The same holds true for the Allies.
