Nuns with Laserguns - By Troublemaker Games

The guns doesn't really look like what most people think Laser guns would look like. 

The 'magazines' with a slight bend as if they're holding tapered cartridges in them really lets it down for that. 

The ejection port just above the magazines implies some sort of projectile ammo as well.

 

It almost looks like they took inspiration from two different weapons in the Imperial Guard armour - the lasgun (main frame/body of the gun) and the boltpistol (magazine), and then merged the two together.

 

Ammo resupply box for the missile launcher also kind of looks like it would store muffins or something, as opposed to missiles (scale doesn't seem like it matches up all that well, and it's sculpted in a way that looks like it's aiming to be full, not "this one in my arms, this is the last one, let's make it count!").

 

Nuns with guns though, definitely not something you see every day!

Well, energy is equivalent to mass, so a high-powered laser surely... err... there's got to be some Star Trek technobabble level explanation for why laser weapons require recoil compensation in there somewhere, I'm sure.

Hi all,

 

The magazine shape is inspired by the British Army SA-80. Albeit it's not a bullpup configuration.

 

I suspect there's some sort of "laser charges" that are stored in the magazine, and ejected out of the side port once the charge is spent after a few dozen shots. Then the next charge is loaded into the rifle's body similar to a bullet being cocked into the chamber.

 

All the best laser rifles give kickback. :rolleyes:

Oh, so they're kinda sorta like powerguns from David Drake's Hammers Slammers books?

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
