Minigun concept thingy by Skaiway Minigun concept thingy by Skaiway
Hey, hey, look at me! I actually tried to make a concept that you could give to a modeler and he would be able to make a proper model from that without getting confused :D

So now I'm going to look at this a bit, then try to model it.

Update: (Quickly) added some clarifying info and a top-view :D

Sure :) I'll probably make an update to this soonish with a quick top-view and some more info based on the comments so check back in a couple of hours for a (hopefully) better concept :D

It's still a work in progress , but here's a quick render and some views of what I have so far , no texture what so ever , because my laptop does not have the computing power [link]

doesn't look like it holds much ammo, which is the traditional issue with trying to create a portable ballistic minigun, though I guess a functional concept wasn't the point of this exercise was it?

Beltfeed, like Vulcan Raven :) I'd say that this should be carried with a powered armour or somesuch, heavy weapon.

ah powered armor, gotta love it's ability to make the weight of weapons irrelevant

Yup, it's pretty much summarized in how they designed Master Chief for instance: "take a main battle tank and make it wearable"

too bad most power armor doesn't have a cannon like a main battle tank

best concepters are modelers themselves, we need to learn proper paiting and concepting

a couple minor errors, a missing top view, but otherwise it looks fine, with a little imagionation, a little bit of tweeking, could be an epic model. im up for it if you want something to compare it against.

Just letting you know that I updated the image with a top-view and some info :)

alright, you know those counterweights are going to be really thin right?
Reply
:iconskaiway:
Skaiway Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yup :P

If they look really weird one could of course make them a bit taller, so they would seem a bit heftier. The "spine" of this is about 8 cm in width judging from the size I made the handle.

The modeller has a say of course if things look weird :) I'm here to learn :D

zackBlack16 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012
well i was thinking of just changing the back and a bit to have it hanging out over the sides of that spine there

Can do :) might even do that to my concept too now that you mentioned it.

Good pointers all around :D

this is why games have large teams of people, as opposed to just one person.

Yup, though I've experienced teams with too too strict roles which in turn slow the process down :(

Nice gun, careful with the minigun barrel the triangle-ish part that joints the 3 barrels. It looks like it would hit the lowest part of the minigun when it spins, i mean the rectangular part bellow the barrels.

Looks nice. Did you have a caliber in mind when you made it? Or vehicle mounting ability?
Reply
:iconskaiway:
Skaiway Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
No to both, didn't think that far :P Good pointers though. I might even update this reflecting all the comments I've got :)

Caliber is also something to consider with a minigun design. It's as simple as going to wiki and looking up common calibers.

Skaiway Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Heh, and going with a 20mm makes this a gatling, not a minigun. Argh :D

Skaiway Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Good point. I'm going with the 20mm real-life counterpart, aka M61 Vulcan :)

If you still want it man portable you could go with 12.5 or 14.

Right, 14 it is then :D

Nice drawing. Altho, for a modeller, perhaps a top view wouldn't be a bother.
