OK, so it's not really a quiz, BUT I need your help TacCmd Community!

I've recently (as of today) acquired several OOP Epic Warlords to add to my vastly growing Epic Armageddon arsenal. I also received lots of weapons to go along with the Warlords. My problem is aside the missile launcher and the power fist, I'm not quite sure what I have. So this is where you guys/gals come in. I have some pics, although not the best res (my crappy phone), they should be good enough to decipher what I have. I'm hoping you all could fill in the blanks for me.

10 weapons in all. This isn't open book and you have 15 minutes...Good Luck!

Yes, D/S ... glad to see you were paying attention during that class at the academy ... ;D But remember, from AT1/SM1 to SM2/TL ... they changed many of the names to what D/S has listed ... ;)

Yeah, I remember the name changes. I still call it a Multi-Launcher and every now and then I say "Macro Cannon" instead of Quake Cannon. :D

I have become used to the Volcano cannon, But it's still Multi-Launcher (or Multi Rocket Launcher, even) and Macro cannon to me.

Some dude scanned in one of the old GW catalogs. In the Epic sections are pictures of the weapons for Reaver, Warhound, Gargant, Phantom, etc. The only page missing, which coincidently is the one we need, is the page from the plastic Warlord. I've got that one at home and I'll scan it in shortly. A great way to figure out what wierd weapon thingy you got in an ebay shipment of old epic crap.

That hinge on the Vortex Missle was always quite puzzling.
