The heavy weapons are just tops. Offer a really nice alternative look that still fits in with everything else.

That thing is going to have to do some seriously low passes to get those bad boys in range. ;)

With a longer range than HB and Reapers, now you can fry your enemies in style and safety! Vokite always has your back (or rear armour) :P

 

Just wish you could keep them firing in one continuous beam and swoop along the ground, scythe style :D

Slightly random musing. The plasma cannon is rumoured to be returning to it 2nd edition roots with the old 'low' and 'high' power settings, which was tremendously fun back in the day. Do you think we could see Volkite culverins getting a similar treatment? Perhaps 'low' would be the fusillade of shots we have at the moment whilst 'high' would be a beam weapon?

Would it's strength change? Beam can be quite nasty. Multiply that by 10 and the dice bucket that's already full could potentially overflow with the right lines of fire

Dunno, in two minds. Maybe higher strength but less range or same range lower strength? Can see the pros and cons of both sides.

Just finished Mr Volkite. Lovely model, even if I did ruin one of the cables.

Bummer that the cable was flubbed but still, nice job brother! And a double helping of choom, too. ^_^

Had a brief attempt at making volkite-in-action, but I have to say not entirely happy with how it came out. Can't think of any proper way to show the central 'white' beam, and the large 'red' glow around it, in a 3d manner. Had a try at the rings as well (the only way I could think of) so all together it kinda looks passable, from a distance. Still need to drill a socket in the neck for it to slot into.

I will applaud the attempts, regardless of the end results, Brother. This is something I have rarely seen anyone else try. :tu:

It may be a model from 10,000 years later technically, but here is my Arch Magos Dominus: Luther Ionsight

@Aeternas: I love the effect you've done - while I agree it would be difficult to show an inner white beam surrounded by red, perhaps you could paint some variations in intensity of the red/white along the length of the beam? Alternatively, you could try an irridescent medium, though I'm not sure quite how well that would work...

 

@Charlo: Archmagos Ironsight looks pretty good :)

@ Aeternas - Maybe use red-tinted transparency sheets cut into a series of decreasing circles?  I used to use something similar for spinning props on model aircraft.
