Bolt Shells - Warhammer 40k Ammo by Renquist-von-Reik Bolt Shells - Warhammer 40k Ammo by Renquist-von-Reik
Bolt shell props from the Warhammer 40k universe.

Cast resin, painted with acrylics.
Approx. 3" long and 1.25" wide.

A shot with rulers to show the scale:


Bolt weapons and ammo:
Bolt weapons fire self-propelled mass-reactive shells known as bolts, which are timed to explode just after penetration for maximum lethality.

Each bolt is contained within a cartridge which includes a small conventional powder charge. When fired, this charge launches the bolt while simultaneously igniting its solid fuel propellant, which is timed to do so once it is clear of the barrel. The cartridge is then ejected, clearing the breech for the next round, while the bolt accelerates towards the target under its own power.

I loved the Chain Sword, but honestly I think this is my favorite item you've ever made. I want to make some and just have them sitting around my house or even when I'm at the office... (I'm military) and people be like: "WTF!? WHAT SIZE IS THAT AND WHAT GUN FIRES THAT ROUND!?!" and I be like: "It's a 75cal (.75 caliber)." and I'd leave it at that as their faces are still in shock and will probably never recover. They'd look like that painting known as "The Scream" you know the one... The kids from Home Alone when he slaps his face and screams "AH"? Yeah they'd look like that.

I love Bolt weapons

Today bullets do little holes (but with a large outlet)
but the tear break off chunks of meat and whole limbs ^ ^
not to mention the head ...

i like SM Veterans becouse they have few kinds of ammo. best are Krakens, Vengeance and Hellfire
