"The rythmic roar of bolters punctured the air, the furious crackling of plasma discharges was interrupted by the CHOOMING of his Volkite weapon." ... struth XD.

im not complaining XD just asking how you would describ it. roaring, barking, seering, lancing, blinding, snapping. These are all used for weapons in fiction but i cant think of any for volkites.

Same here, I've also got some mkII and gonna make a Unification Wars/Great crusade Heavy Choom squad, plus a unit of veterans with combichoom, using a blu-stuff mold out of the event praetor.

Greetings

I humbly submit the only Volkite in my entire army, the Volkite Incinerator on my Ursarax Cohorts, freshly painted for ETL VI. For a faction that comes from Mars it has always surprised me how few Volkite weapons are in the Mechanicum arsenal.

I'd do them white going throug yellow and orange to red outwards. Opposite of a usual colour progression.

"Choom" is a squeal, according to MoM

 
Remember, when I first devised the whole 'choom' sound, it was intended to be onomatopoeic. That said, both of these depictions - the 'pang' (as I recall them) of Fett's mines and the 'squeal' description from MoM - can more or less coexist in the grey area of fan interpretation. The canon depictions so far don't really take Volkites in a drastically different direction to what we visualise already but, as we all know, canon is a very mutable thing. At least, so far, 'Choom' can be considered canonical. What exactly that noise is, is up to you.
 
It definitely isn't 'pew pew pew', though. That's the blasters from Star Wars. msn-wink.gif

Can always ally them in for now, though 2 battle tank mounted Volkite might give us hope for future vehicles

'Eyas and how's it goin' mates?  I figured I might as well sidle up to the party, too.  So, y'know, don't mind me too much, I'll just be hanging around and gettin' some experience with the shooty death rays.  I still haven't gotten to use any volkite in anger, yet so it's all shiny and new.  

 

Hopefully, it won't be new for long.  Got a megabattle where we're supposed to bring out 5K points each, so I'm expecting a Glaive might be able to claim a few kills in something like that, eh? 

gallery_107230_14721_49469.jpg

 

And a far more humble group. The only mk.II I could get my hands on, so why not draft them to a good cause. 

gallery_107230_14721_32057.jpg

 

Can I say it?  Do I get permission?  CHOOM!
