This one started life as a belt-fed foam dart gun. I did a bit of body customizing (for me anyways!) and I hope it gave the gun a more realistic look.

This was a more reserved project due to the budget, but I hope you guys still approve :)

thats a nice CS6 longshot behind it too, looking like a steampunk pulse rifle, i never figured out how to modify the single shot pump action attachment under the barrel

here's an idea, get a Rey star wars force awakens blaster, remove the grip, turn it upside down and add it under the barrel of an existing rifle ( such as a rayven with a barrel attachment or stryfe ) so you end up with a 4 shot pump action launcher attachment, yes?

That would be a very cool setup! I'll try to keep it in mind!

it wasn't easy, haha.  It's actually a pretty cool design, I just wish it had a more blocky design without all the rounded parts.  It could look so much better! :)

What's that scope on the Longshot? I see it everywhere but haven't been able to track down where it comes from!

Amazing. I love the paint job. Makes it seem very - combat-worn and heavy duty.
Reminds me of Gears of War!

looks like it would be lighter than the traditional minigun. and with rounds as big as would fit in those barrels, certainly more deadly. =D

Indeed. You would not want to one-hand this monster :)

Base coats were black and some copper on the gatling gun. The rest is brushwork..lots of brushwork for me, haha. No airbrush yet, but that will be here eventually :)

JohnsonArmsProps's avatar
JohnsonArmsPropsProfessional Artisan Crafter
oh sweet lord yes. I'd say about 2000+ hours of that kinda stuff :)

Yeah, spraying is too heavy sometimes. I use a sponge sometimes to dry dab over raised spots to grain it up.
