Is the tripod mounted version going to be different to this?

No plans for a tripod mounted version for now.

But if/when i do, it probably won't be. It might lose the bipod and then simple be mounted on a tripod like they did with the MG34.

But the most common heavy stubber model looks just like an M2 browning (which it states in your description).

Nothing forces them actually be same looking, as there are different variations and patterns.

What Talic said pretty much.

Also I just grabbed that description from Lexicanum, which contradicts itself by lower on the page showing the only known pattern, which is unknown.. that looks like this one.

Not to mention that I find it a waste of time to make a whole new model just for a tripod mounted version..

┬ĘThe best thing on warhammer 40k is that you can make any weapon desing you want and call it unknown pattern or a pattern belonging to a certain planet/ sector you can also create, because there are billions worlds in w40k

Most common, not all. GW uses the M2 look, FW has 3 separate heavy stubber designs: the artwork we've used, the renegade miniature which is a giant, straight magazine-fed MG42 and the Krieg double-barreled, giant Bren guns.

This is actually what the renegades will be using. Some vehicles might come with them pintle mounted(both imperial and chaos) but it's only Chaos troops that will be deployed with it.

You'll have to loot it off the corps of a dead renegade to use it against them.

Description

The heavy stubber, also known as a heavy stub gun, is a projectile weapon similar in appearance and effect to a M2-era heavy machine gun, firing large-calibre bullets able to stop a man dead in his tracks. The heavy stubber is inferior to the Heavy Bolter in terms of penetration, being defeated by anything better than Flak armour, but compensates with sheer rate of fire, making it an ideal weapon for use against hordes of lightly-armoured infantry and vehicles. The heavy stubber is also cheap and easy to mass produce and can be built on many low-tech worlds which might not otherwise be able to construct laser weapons. The weight and recoil of many patterns of heavy stubbers require that they be fired from the prone position with a bipod or tripod, or require a pintle mount on an armoured vehicle. Others are more man-portable, and even heavier patterns can be wielded by a single trooper through the use of bracing harnesses or suspensors.
Within the Imperial Guard the heavy stubber remains its most common anti-personnel weapon. It is often used as a crew-served support weapon or mounted on vehicles in cases where the rarer but more potent Storm Bolter is unavailable. Siege Regiments in particular, typically suffering heavy casualties and having to use local materials to replace any equipment losses, make prodigious use of heavy stubbers on account of their ease of manufacture and maintenance. Because of its pervasiveness the heavy stubber has also found its way into the hands of Imperial citizens, and is popular with both militias and outlaws.
Adeptus Astartes armour is practically immune to heavy stubber fire, although a lucky bullet can penetrate the less-protected areas such as the neck or joints and cause serious injury.
