So for my first post in the Armory, I present my American Civil War Gatling Gun
Soldier with Bayonet
Invented in 1861 by Dr. Richard J. Gatling
, the famous multi-barrel rapid-fire weapon saw it's first combat in the American Civil War.
Billy Yank here sets up his death machine behind the cover of an ammo and supply box.
An explody-o view to show the pieces I used and how they came together. The 2x2 round brik on the back is the ammo hopper.
With the bayonet mounted on his trusty rifle, Billy is ready for both ranged and close-quarter combat!
The Union Soldier makes use of the weapon attachment rules for the bayonet and the Gatling Gun itself uses the Warm Up trait from IVhorseman's Plastik Armory
For comparison, here is my old draft
of the Gatling Gun:
And a picture of the real thing:
I use LeoCAD
to make these models.
If you want to use my pictures or design, I ask that you please credit me as the artist. If you want the LEGO CAD file for this MOC, either in LeoCAD or LDraw format, simply make a request for it in the comments below and I can email it to you.
