This particular weapon was Germany's contribution to the conflict during the late 20's early 30's and was widely used by the Pelazian infantry. As can be seen it does bare the profile of the infamous MP40 used later in our own WW2 battles.
This axe is from a new storyline I have bouncing around in my headwhich is separate from my guns universe.
STORYLINE: A favourite weapon of the elite clergy unit "Battle Priests"who were trained to rid the lands of the unclean vampire hoards. The priests would decorate the handles of their weapons with the dried skins of their fallen comrades to give their own weapons greater strength. In this weapons case a vampires tooth is found at the end of the handlewhich been enchanted by a witch and is said to inflict deep festering wounds to vampires who are struck by it.
One of my bigger projects, I decided to include a bit of leather work into the sculptures to add a different element.
One of the bigger rifles used by pelazian troops this weapon was usually fired from the higher ground points of the battle field and used to take down well armoured enemy ground position's with pinpoint accuracy.
Being quiet complex in design its believed only a few were ever used during the conflict.
My first "old west" style rifle which I thought needed to have the long range scope to finish it off.
STORYLINE: The favourite weapon of the elite Palazian Sniper Group, this weapon proved formidable during the battle of Stormholm on the planet Baxus, three years into the conflict. Much of the fighting during this theartre occurred in tall wooded forests and high cliff ledges. Close quarter skirmishes were rare due to the terrain, which had numerous mineral rich mines and both sides fought for it relentlessly it.
