After converting a better-scaled autorifle earlier this year, I decided to continue the series of true-scale 40k firearms with the humble lasrifle. While I have been meaning to convert a smaller lasrifle for some time, the recent release of the Death Korp of Krieg models for Kill Team gave me the perfect excuse. The official design of the new plastic Death Korp rifles are remarkably cumbersome.
|Using a razor saw, cut off the upper section of the lasrifle and the barrel. Use the forward grip on the rifle as a guide for the cut. Since this is a pretty long cut, it can help to remove the razor saw from the handle to give you more room to cut.|
|Using a hobby knife, cut off the upper section of the lasrifle stock.|
|Using plasticard and greenstuff, add additional detailing like front and rear sights to the rifle. Since this is a laser rifle, many of the standard rifle details like charging handles and ejections ports are not needed.|

With a total of nine other Death Korp models left in the Kill Team, I am tempted to make a few more tutorials. This seems like a good opportunity to convert another human-scaled special weapon or another pistol. We will see what the future holds!
