Hey guys,

Denny from www.worldworksgames.com here. Please feel free to move this if it's in the wrong area, no disrespect intended to normal forum rules. We recently launched a new $10.00 Steampunk weapon kit and thought this community might be interested. We hope the support is there because we'd genuinely like to do more in the series. Here's the official press release: http://www.worldworksgames.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=7&products_id=325

Steampunk fans rejoice!

Finally an affordable and attractive solution to your Steampunk weaponry needs has arrived. Need a gun for your next convention? Costume party? Halloween? Secret Steampunk society gathering? The 5000 Volt Lightning Gun, our first full scale 1:1 Steampunk weapon, has you covered!  http://www.worldworksgames.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=7&products_id=325



WorldWorksGames has partnered with New York Times best selling authors Tracy & Laura Hickman (DragonLance, Death Gate and Ravenloft adventure settings), to bring you an exciting new line of gaming products. The Lightning Gun takes inspiration from the upcoming The Lakota Dragons War game setting and book series. This unique re-imagining of the struggle for the American West, pits the technologically superior Airships and Ornithopers of the U.S. Air Cavalry against the dragon-riding native Lakota Warriors.

Hey Denny! Thanks for posting this, and what a cool gun indeed. A great price for a real steampunk looking gun, a definite resource for someone in a pinch and needs a good prop for their costume.

Hope to see more from you!

Hey thanks Scourch! I've always been a massive fan of Steampunk in general and this was a great chance to try to do something interesting with the genre. The community here is pretty amazing and very resourceful.

My hope is that the above option gives people on a budget something realistic to shoot for if they need something for costuming and or wall display. To be totally honest, I just wanted something cool to put up on my wall and I couldn't afford other options...one thing led to another Wink

Hopefully this is just the first release of many to come!

It s pretty cool and since it's one of the only thing on the market that doesn't need immediate modding to make it steamy I think those that need a quick fix for their costume or even because they aren't sure their regular sidearm would make it through baggage check in at the airport.

Nice video:

Steampunk Lightning Gun


$10 is pretty cheap.. noticed the site mentions cardstock though. So are these just instructions to build your own, or does it come with pre-cut pieces of material, etc?

EDIT: Nevermind, lol.. just noticed by the price where it says "PDF download". Instructions-only it is, then. Smiley

Its not just instructions actually but high resolution templates to build the gun itself. The whole thing is based around a structurally rigid foamcore frame, with graphic templates overlain on top of the structure. Check out the instructions here for a much better idea of how it all works: http://www.worldworksgames.com/store/products/ldw/gun.zip

Ahh yeah, I see it now! Hmm.. now I gotta find a sourcce for cardstock locally.. it's probably called differently over here.
Yo! Any Dutch folks here that can help me out with this??

I think it would look bad-ass with a shoulder stock attached.. Grin
