Need Input: Army Guns

Postby Ross_Varn » Thu Oct 30, 2008 6:42 pm

Hey everyone,

So I want to buy a bunch of minifigs for a themed army. I came up with a couple of gun ideas for the infantry, using the pieces I have the most of.

Gun 1 -

Your poll is messed up, but I like gun 2.

I say one if you switch out the long-barrelled blaster for the short-barrelled one.

I agree with oneI.
you could also put a black-connector-thingy on the end of the long rifle, I've seen that before to good affect.

Certainly #2. It is far more compact than the other two, yet appears somehow more powerful.

Gun 1 looks like a sniper rifle, gun 2 looks like a regular infantry assault rifle, and gun 3 looks like a bazooka or its futuristic equivalent. I'd vote for gun 2, but keep some of the other two types around for special missions.

Popchik, i think someone already did that gun for their army.

Besides, i want mine to be original.

But the black technic pin on the end of the star wars rifle, then clip the minifig hand right under the scope. If you must, I suppose the second is the best.

I don't like any of them.
My suggestions:
Star wars long rifle with black hand in fron t of trigger.
Star wars original (meggaphone) blaster with classic space gun (as seen in pic 1) going into the back, both handles down.

Number 2.

Number 1 is good too, but it looks too heavy to be a common infantry weapon.

my floppy penis, i just tried both of those, and, well, no. I already have the hand on the sniper gun thing as a stand for my snipers.

Number 2 it is then! I will post pics of a basic trooper with the number two gun, as soon as I find my camera. Thanks for the input, everyone.
