Revisit: MkII shock armour by Snowfyre Revisit: MkII shock armour by Snowfyre
Well, this is a revisit of the MK 2 shock armour.
see [link] for previous.

experiments into armour detail etc.
With boring background.

experiment into firing poses.


Yep, back to the "Tornado" RHMG again. Although the draconians call it a "Rotary Heavy Machine Gun" The shells are actually larger than that of other races autocannon rounds.... and on the rare occasions they actually DO fire explosive rounds, the large number of explosions is actually pretty spectacular amount of firepower.

it is considered to be a heavy weapon for troopers equipped with shock armour, default shock armour weapons are the standard rifles (interestingly enough)

Stats (40K):
Infantry version.
Solid shot: Str 7, Ap 4, Heavy 5, Range: 30", Rending.
Explosive tips: Str 5, Ap 5, Heavy 4, Range 30", Blast, pinning.


Note that shell casings eject downwards. It's an adaptation to close quarter fighting with these guns so that you don't happily spray hot spent casings on your team mate next to you when firing.


Yayyyy dakka dakka dakka dakkaaaa

Ah. it's a great axe, but the blade is enveloped in an energy field. makes it useful even if it has no power!

Moral dilemma for shell casing disposal:

Sideways: "Don't stand to the right side of the weapon while it is engaged"

Down: "Use caution the first few steps after firing"

At least he's wearing armor hopefully that doesn't heat up too fast! =^^=

Keeling seems like a good firing position, prone wuld be impractical due to the weight of the armor?

Well, The improved versions of the armour do feature bracing systems so they can shoot on the move if needed. Unfortunately proning is not advised with this armour type.

I still think this is one of, if not, the best designs you've made!

Shell casings ejecting downwards... Now why don't real guns do that? ^^'

:iconsnowfyre:
Snowfyre Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Lolz. Heavy non-powered armour. :D
If you know the history of the race you'd figure out why the armour was left as non-powered even though powered armour was made.

It's due to fighting in EMP conditions.

But still I kinda like the MK II shock armour design. It's suitably heavy looking and thick.


Downward casings. :D well, real guns there's sometimes an attachment to do that. usually they don't care as flying from side is cooler.

The P90 is an exception, casings eject forward.

:iconshainasuka:
ShainAsuka Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2009
Ohh, tricky. I could imagine a power armour just shutting down leaving the wearer stranded or extremely restrained.

Really? I never noticed that about the P90. :D I guess it's a good thing I got up today.
Reply
:iconsnowfyre:
Snowfyre Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep.
It's a strange history really, though the fact that these suits are not powered means they are heavy as hell to stomp around in.


up and about :D

ShainAsuka Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2009
Yay history lesson!

Firing a P90 in a strong headwind would be so annoying! Rounds be pelting your enemy, shells be pelting your head.

It's slightly simpler. More stocky too. Gives it a much thicker armour feel.
