The guy actually didn't try to make a lancer. A Space Marine Heavy Bolter is from Warhammer 40k. I just don't know why he didn't give FA24 any credit when he mounted the chainsaw pretty much exactly like he did.
Thank you for acknowledging this. But i do give credit to him in the very first line of the auction. I realize now that i dont give it any mention in the video, which i guess was a big mistake. I figured that all the people that would see the video would have been directed there from the auction and that they would have seen the previous mention. I didnt take into account that other people would just go directly to the video without reading the auction and i honestly just didn't even think about it
In pic 8, it looks like I can see a barrel post!
Hah. I agree. This guy in the video is acting like it was all his idea, and that it is awesome. He clearly has no modding skill, because I got my longshot to shoot 80ft and that was my first mod ever! I think someone should email him and tell him that 60ft out of a longshot is nothing. He is selling it, just so everyone knows. Im not going to post the link, but it's on ebay.
Again, the chainsaw is not my idea, the rest of the gun however was completed on my own creative steam. I personally think it is an awesome gun and i cant say what other people will think about it because everyone has their own opinions. If being able to graft a working chainsaw onto a nerf gun means, "He clearly has no modding skill," then i dont know whats going to make you happy. On that same note, if a longshot is the firt gun you've modded, then you are only a baby to the nerf world. 60 feet is nothing compared to 80 or 100 feet, i absolutely agree. My group however personally never plays outside, as well as we dont live in mansions that have open areas of 100 feet, as such theres no need to have the guns shoot that far, so why complicate the mod further than it needs to be? I took out the air restrictors and added a BBB spring to the original, thats enough for us. But hey, if you play outside, then yeah, definitely go further with it.
Also, the auction is
It's infamous because it was talked about on over two hundred websites, including Gizmodo. And a LOT of people browse nerfhaven, that aren't members. For every member browsing, it seems there are about 5 guests.
Although, how FA24's mod is infamous, Im not sure.
I also want to thank all the peole who actually had supportive things to say and those who actually had constructive criticisms (i admit the skull looks cartoony). Its that kind of thing that makes me want to keep doing this and continue to strive to get better and better. And to all the people who cant get over comparing it to the Lancer and say its a piece a shit simply because its not the same gun, fuck you, you're all dumb assholes. That being said im really sorry i had to intruduce myself like this, and come off like a prick. It's just that i have in fact been doing this stuff for a while and i put alot of work into the gun, and all the people who don't know me or know any better critisizing me over the internet gets me fuckin riled up.
whew, i appoligise for my outbursts
