Title: My Weapon Loadout
Post by: Mithras on Nov 13, 2012, 01:35 AM
Hello, everyone.

Thought I'd document my weapons loadout, thus far. Will be applying with these weapons. I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. We didn't have ideal lighting conditions today. Hopefully you can get an idea of what I'm working with. I know that the image of the DLT-19 is particularly rough, but in my defense.. it's bleedin' huge.

1. DC-15 with "Sure Sight" Scope (Modified Hasbro Clone Blaster)

Added a covertec wheel and scope.

2. Imperial Issue DLT-19 (Sci-Fire Hyperfirm)

Looks huge, and it is, but doesn't weigh much, fortunately.

3. Speizoc A-98 "Gundark Eater" Flechette Blasters (Original concept; heavily modified Batman toys. Shown with holsters.)

Speizoc briefly attempted to enter the personal arms market just prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars, in an attempt to capitalize on what was expected to be the first mobilization of an Army of the Republic in 1,000 years. Unfortunately, Speizoc based its designs on a false assumption that the army would not be comprised primarily of Clones, and  lost out on the small arms contract. Few of the designs were completed before Speizoc returned to the business of heavy artillery. This particular design was intended to serve as the personal sidearm of Republic assault forces, weapon crews, and officers.

Rare, and highly valued, these tri-barreled weapons are one of the few "slug thrower" designs still in use in the modern era. Significant drawbacks include a unique auto-loading system with a tendency to jam unless carefully maintained, and the comparative rarity of replacement parts for the delicate internal workings.  Referred to as the "Gundark Eater" due to its popularity with hunters of large game animals with thick hides not easily affected by standard blaster type weapons.

These weigh very little, and look pretty good on the gunbelt. A fun project.

On item #1, did you modify the handle size?  I have one of those I am going to mod, but the grip is quite small out of the box....

Your painting & weathering are quite nice!   ;)

Thank you, Vod!

Didn't modify the size. The weapon I modified was the standard Clone Blaster from Rubies, which is slightly larger than the basic Hasbro model and looks about right in the hands of an adult. I know that the Hasbro "Captain Rex" tends to run smaller.

Wow. I had a similar idea with those batman toys.....is that weird?
Each barrel launching 12, 3mm x 24mm darts. Each shell casing housed two loads of darts, giving the gun a six shot capacity.

Personally, I'd prefer the DC-15 without the scope. Seems a little disproportional. But other than that I like em! :D
