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?

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
