Kyrdan Energy Musket by Great-5 Kyrdan Energy Musket by Great-5
Type-11 Energy Projectile Rifle - Nick's Ultimate Armory of Badass

The Energy Musket is an energy-projectile weapon which fires a 15mm, plasma-saboted spherical projectile carrying a powerful thermal energy charge to the target. It uses a pulsed UV laser to ignite or “activate” each round, which is then accelerated electromagnetically between two dorsal rails which form the twin “prongs” of the weapon. Each round packs a substantial energy charge, exploding on impact to make up for the relatively low muzzle velocity when compared to conventional gunpowder firearms.

A pulsed, solid-state UV laser ionizes and superheats the projectile's hydrogen fuel layer, which reacts with the projectile's copper based outer shell to create a self-sustaining plasma reaction in and around the projectile that boosts its penetrative power...the plasma-saboted projectile is accelerated magnetically between two rare-earth magnetic prongs that are used in lieu of a conventional barrel.

16th century gone plasma-powered. Hell. Yes.

Yep, you're right. I was definitely going for that sort of look, as it is the Kyrdan Empire's aesthetic. They're basically medieval tech meets steampunk tech meets sci-fi alien tech in the vein of the Covenant from Halo. They are a very fun faction to do concepts for.

Looks nice. It appeals to my appeal for sort of classic look to weapons such as having wood stocks and so on.

Stay tuned. I have had a better version in the works since mid-late November, with such improvements as a larger mag that can hold up to 55 rounds (the small, cylindrical mag shown here just won't cut it, and is incapable of holding the 75 rounds described in the picture itself,) a raised stock that can actually function as a stock when firing from the shoulder (don't worry, it's still made of hardwood,) a leather-wrapped grip for added control, and more pretty, glowy lights. I have the lineart finished (it can be viewed here: fav.me/d6cvu6q) and all I need to do is add the decorations and draw a higher-quality final version.

Nah you're fine, go ahead and say it. The Covenant were one of my biggest influences on the weapons and technology of the Kyrdan knights. I take it you think it looks like Reach's plasma repeater, because that was actually one of my main influences for this weapon. However, I have since changed its design somewhat significantly and am fast approaching a final draft, one which doesn't look QUITE as much like a plasma repeater.
