Title: Imperial Guard Las-Gun
Post by: Kol Badar on April 16, 2017, 05:35:26 AM
It's been a while since I have posted but I thought I would share a recent build of mine.

I've been making boltguns and chainswords for marines for a while now and wanted to make gun more on a human scale.

I decided on a Guard standard rifle , so off I went on a search for some plans/template to get me started. I found one I liked and "blew" it up close to the measurements I required.

I made the main body with 3mm posterboard, this is glued together with superglue.

Grip was traced out on to posterboard and cut out then sandwiched between 2 pieces of foam. This was then rougly cut to shape and then finished with a sanding drum on a dremel.

Starting to take shape.

Barrel consists of 3 different size of Pvc pipe plus a couple of random bits to finish off.

The stock was tackled the same as the grip, posterboard sandwiched between foam and then carved to shape, card details added.

Looking like a rifle now .

With the bulk of the work done it was time to add the details. I found a skull that fit the size I needed and added it to a set of foam wings.

Buttons, switches and power clip were made out of foam and random bits found in my bitz box.

Pvc pipe was added for the sights and a colour scheme was picked.

Final thing to do was to weather this bad boy up.

I'm happy with how it turned out , so much so I'm toying with the idea of putting a guard costume together to go with the rifle. :p
