That looks fantastic. I'm a purist and feel uneasy whenever a part is painted or permenantly altered. But that looks really good.

I don't have a good looking shotgun design yet, still working on that. I do however, have a fairly good looking 'Bolter' design. Anyone who knows what Space Marines are should know what I mean. I'll post pictures hopefully soon (it depends on how soon I remember to ask my mother for the use of her camera)!

6 rods stuffed in a barrel, attached to a 1x1 all-stud piece, which is supported by a T-plunger that attaches to exo-force mech arms for supports, and behind this is another 1x1 all-stud, with a wheel, a clip for iron sights, and all of this covered with various greebles (extra parts of seemingly random crap used to make something look more complicated than it is).

I built the barrel part and if you use 8 rods instead of 6 theres no need for a rubber-band, it actually fits quite snug.

That is actually a really nice and fairly simple design... I'm going to go make it on the Lego Designer and order it! Complete with instructions, which I can then post, if you all wish. First, I'll need money...

I glued an antenna to an Episode II Clone Trooper helmet to make an Arc Trooper, and I felt like I was desecrating the part.

WOW that is a really nice shotgun but if you would ask me it would look better without the stock and a angled handle.

Don,t mind my spelling I'm Dutch.

Well this shotgun is based off the classic double barrel design, while not as cool as the sawed-off type,
it just happend to be what I designed it off of.

sadly I don't have an image of it but I did mine similar to Almighty Benny's, save I used an upside down pistol as the handle and slapped a technic pin into the other end for the barrel.

dammit, I gotta get at least a webcam so I can get pics of my lego stuff. :evil:

Take another look at the Rulebook, kid. This isn't LEGO Wars, it's BrikWars. Besides,

So there.
Well i would say if there is any flaw in Brikwars its that there is no kill peach heads and burn megablok days
