Galvian Needler Pistol - Warhammer 40k Prop by Renquist-von-Reik Galvian Needler Pistol - Warhammer 40k Prop by Renquist-von-Reik
My wife wanted a gun that was a bit more dainty than the beast of a bolt pistol, or the even more monstrous inferno pistol props I made. We spent hours looking through source book after source book of Warhammer 40k weapons until finally she decided the needler pistol was the weapon for her. Sleek, elegant, and extremely lethal it is a favorite weapon of assassins throughout the Imperium!

This one is not a resin cast! Crafted from pvc pipes, mdf board, with styrene details and some epoxy putty sculpting. It took about 2 weeks to craft and another to paint. I'm getting faster :D

Dimensions
14.5" long
9" tall
2.25" wide at its widest

Sorta reminds me of a very large syringe. Wouldn't wanna be on the wrong end of that thing! It also looks very retro.

I agree about the retro look. In all the pictures of this gun it's looks proper sci fi but somehow the replica definitely has a retro look to it. I'm not sure how that happened, but it's pretty cool that it did ;)

I`m sure you can do a hydra out of PVC too..;-)
Its a very interest concept and design for a fleet weapon.
We had some ideas in the last weeks cause we looking for a weapon for my wifes fleet uniform, currently she use a standard autopistol, but its not perfect.
And I have nothing to say about the quality of your work...since you have built the bolt ammo, Im a fan of your work.

Whats next....?

To much honour for the airdefence..;-)

My mind is blown lol. Having you say you're a fan of my work is like Mike Jordan coming up to you on the basketball court on the playground saying you're pretty good.

*mind blown*

Next up is something I'm excited about, and a step outside the box for my prop making. Hint - it's leather, sits on your head, and has a tall peak in the front ;)

Cheer mate, and keep up the astounding work and thank you!

I can't read Russian so I'm relying on an online translator here...
"Weapons imperial fleet?"

Yes, this could certainly be found amongst Imperial Fleet officers. It's truly a devastating weapon against unarmored or lightly armored opponents and there's no chance of it doing any sort of "catastrophic" damage to any ship (breaching the hull, damaging a warp engine, etc). It's also commonly found on Imperial assassins.

I hope that's what you were asking, that answered your question, and you can read English well enough to understand it! (if not try an online translator! :D)

I read the book "The hour of death" on the cover of a similar weapon.

Time very well spent. I think this is one of the best 40k props I've ever seen (possibly excepting :iconelysiantrooper: who built his own Hydra flak cannon).
