"Over the last few months, I have made a few tutorials, showing how to convert smaller, better-scaled firearms, including a Sister of Battle Boltgun, and a Space Marine plasma rifle. This month, I wanted to create a weapon scaled for human-sized individuals, and decided to convert a laspistol…"

Science fiction or fantasy figures have never been all that concerned about whether their weapons were in scale.
Why start now? grin

It helps my suspension of disbelief to see weapons that look reasonably sized.

That is rather good, makes me wonder why manufacturers go the BFG way.

Oh yeah their target market, which is not me.

I'd like to see pistols that would actually fit into the holsters on the figure's belt :)

Errrmm . . . they're as tired of the constant criticism for having OOS weapons by the historical stuffed shirts, as women are by those same people telling them "You can't play. . . Go make me sandwich, B***h!"

Just a wild stab in the dark with a philosophical K-bar . . .

It's a nice conversion, but I probably would have replaced it with one of the laspistols from the old IG sprues (yes, I'm lazy… ;-)
