View Full Version : Heavy Weapon Stormtrooper

Hi and thanks for looking. This is another Stormtrooper to go along with the one I posted recently.






I used the Sandtrooper for this custom as the base figure. I cut and added the shoulder pauldrons to both shoulders and took the ammo clips and glued them to his thighs. I also glued on the removable white cylinders on his back as well as vertically on his sides. I then glued to his back an extra ammo battery for his gatling gun which was really some sort of walkie-talkie from some other random guy. I drilled a hole in to the ammo battery on his back to allow a spot for him to hang his gatling gun. Lastly, I added a strap on glued on an ammo battery to his gatling gun and have him hold it.

As always, thanks for looking and I appreciate all comments good and bad. Oh, and if someone has a cool name for him besides "Heavy Weapon Stormtrooper" I am open to suggestions

Where did you get/make the gun?

Whoa, this guy looks tough. I love his pauldrons and the thermal detonators. Great use of Plague Trooper: Gallows’ mini-gun too! This is quite the meshing of parts. That second to last pic that you posted, he really looks awesome in that pose from that angle. Like he knows that he owns the battle field. I rather like the “Heavy Weapon Stormtrooper” designation. He just looks the part.

There is nothin I mean nothin that ways waste
to your enemys like a nice sweet GE M134 GATLING GUN

Great idea , nice work on the figure .
3000 rounds per minute is a good thing in my book .
If the first round does not hit the target , the other 2999 are not far behind . http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
No spraying and praying with that gun .
Just spray spray spray . The enemy does the praying .

Way to bulk up that Stormtrooper for a serious mission. They could have used him on Endor. Its not just shootouts in the Death Star with a farmboy.

Cool combination of parts and a very inventive look! Way to go!

I appreciate the comments everyone! If I could change something on him I would give his hips the BLASTERMAN treatment but I don't have any of those guys laying around.

I think I might have dirtied up the torso a little more than I would have liked. Oh well.

Thanks for looking everyone!
