Kami'noa Industries MkII portable Pulse Rifle
Kami'noa Industries, developers of new tech & weapon systems for service in the Tau Empire and for the Greater Good[/b]
Long barreled plasma rifle with sniper targeting
The base for the gun is a flamer and plasma rifle re-assembled rather easily. For my scope I used a part of the Ion cannon that I was using to make a custom tank gun. If the scope is to large you could try smaller scopes from space marines or any cylindrical tube would probably work![/b]
Long barrelled Fusion Blaster.
Still works mainly as a count as FB, just for local games adds another 6" of range to it. Parts are 2 FBS, 2nd one for the extra barrel length, and one of the command systems from the old XV8-Commander package (which might be hard to find now-days). Overall I liked the heavy feel to it, and it was the main reason why this Shas'vre became know as Burning Fist![/b]
