A new type of gun?Grimstonefire 09-13-2015

So I'm curious, if you could design a new cd gun, what would it be?

I have two ideas:

Firstly something inbetween the fireglaive and bb.  Mid ranged, no combat bonus, basically a more accurate and powerful supressor at range than a bb.

Secondly, some sort of flame thrower unit.

The first one is inspired by my bb champion I've been making who I wanted to have a more experimental weapon.

I think the flame thrower idea sounds like a good one, possibly something akin to Skaven weapons teams - a two dwarf mini on a cavalry base that accompanies a unit rather than being a unit in its own right. Could also have other weapons teams such as one that fires nets (reduces/prevents movement perhaps?), maybe a steam gun (low strength but ignores armour perhaps?), etc

I like the idea of weapon teams, you could even use the old models like the bazooka or even the swivel gun for them.

How about a 'Corrosion Cannon' which sprays acid?

Heres what has been suggested so far ( just so I can read them all at once)
Standard Firearm - Mid Range but more accurate than a Blunderbuss.
Flame Thrower, Steam Gun or Acid Gun.  
Net Firing weapon

Maybe a boosted Blunderbuss. to cover more range but loses part of its bonuses at longer range
The flame, steam or acid gun could all be variations of the same weapon.  I do like the two man teams for that.
And the net guns would maybe have a pistol like range and not able to be used once in CC.

Not a gun, but how about a grenadier unit?  Something like the Skaven Poison Wind Globadiers, but instead of balls filled with poisoned gas they lob explosives.

i think the best alternative to the netter and\or the grenadier unit it a skirmisher unit or even a detachment like what the empire has. They can be "slavers",they  can stand and shoot if if a unit within 4" is charged. The netter can work somewhat like they do with orcs and goblins. the two man team for the flamethrower (template weapon) thing is a solid idea and we can include the bazooka teams as like a D3 strength 5 hits. As for another ranged weapon we can always go for the classic crossbow or use dwarven hand gun rules with flaming attacks added.

perfect flame thrower team and bazooka team
flame thrower can use the warpfire thrower rules
the bazooka can use the poisoned wind mortar
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y81/cl_...elGun1.jpg
can use the rattling gun rule except with a D3 instead of D6 and doesn't explode to represent a shotgun/ grapeshot type fire

if you want tme to post the rules to them tell me

A machinegun team could be interesting, using the old Ratling Gun rules perhaps. While we're at it, how about a CD version of a Warplock Jezzail? Longer range, but with enough pop to hurt a high Toughness enemy. Of course, the old bazooka team could do that.

I feel like the CD are a little light on slave capturing gear all around, I could see like a duel-barrel chain bolas firing contraption being cool. That that has always been disappointing with the slave capturing races like Dark Eldar and Chaos Dwarves, there hasn’t really been a mechanic for it for a long time.

How about a harpoon type weapon to bring down large creatures?
