Are there any drawfags willing to do a quick sketch? I need a picture of a character. He's a 13th Century Danish knight, wears chainmail, and has a eyepatch (over his left eye) and a scar on that side of his face. the picture is the sort of armor he wears, only no helmet, just a chainmail coif. Thanks.

I've been itching to put together a list of firearms for a home brew game. They should all be manufactured before 1970 in order to ensure the weapons retain the rugged, attractive nature of blued steel and wood stocks. There's a lot of really nifty firearms used by civilians and law enforcement alike, especially during the 20s and 30s. Problem is these weapons are obscure, and I really have no idea where to find stat references for them.

(And yes i'm aware this makes me a gun hipster)

>> No.14886195

>> No.14886298

Well, for police, the Smith and Wesson model 10 in .38 special was popular from the 20's until as late as the 70's in some areas. Later on police might have .357 revolvers, these would also likely be S&Ws. If you're looking for 20's and 30's guns in particular, go on 4shared and search for GURPS pulp guns, there are two volumes and they're chock full of guns from the first 40 or so years of the 20th century.
Also, page 8

>> No.14886315

I know you're not using gurps, but it would give you a good idea of how those guns compare to each other, and even then a lot of the information will transfer, such as weapon weight and so on. You said pre-70's, but can you narrow down the date a little?

The setting for the campaign hasn't been hashed out beyond "generic post-apocalypse", but I did want to limit the cultural and technological range of weapons, armor, items and landscapes to the mid 60's. The firearms players and NPCs use run the gumut front pre-20th century up to the current time frame, so everything from revolvers, shotguns, repeater rifles to automatics and early assault rifles. Ammunition isn't such a valuable commodity, as there are certain places that manufacture it with old factory equipment. I also considered having my players purchase all equipment from a catalog, Sears-Robuck style.

>> No.14886469

Okay. Here's a list of guns that I think you ought to include, starting with rifles and submachine-guns:
M16 (The early ones)
M1 Garand
M1 carbine
Mauser 98
Springfield 1903
Winchester Model 70 (Bolt-action hunting rifle)
Winchester model 94 (Lever action .30-30)
Thompson Gun
Sten, or sten-like guns (These will probably be common, they're very easy to make with very little in the way of tools, parts, or experience)

Also, page 12

>> No.14886516


Honestly, I think M16s are just fuck ugly no matter how you good you trick them out. Coupled with the fact that they effectively replaced what has to be the most attractive US firearm (the m14) for bullshit reasons leads me to ignore their existence altogether.

>> No.14886552

(Note that all of this is just off the top of my head, and I'm sure I'm missing stuff)
Smith and Wesson Model 10 (.38 special)
Smith and Wesson Model 27 (.357 Magnum)
Smith and Wesson Model 29 (.44 Magnum)
Smith and Wesson Model 36 (.38 Special) (A smaller gun, easily concealed)
M1917 (.45 ACP, a wartime revolver that uses the same ammo as the 1911, made by both colt and S&W)
Colt Official Police (.38 special, similar to the model 10)
Colt Detective Special (.38 Special, another snubnose similar to the Model 36)

No H&K G3? :(

Fair enough.
Feel free to add it to your list
On to Semi-auto pistols.

Walther p-38
Browning Hi-Power
Tokarev TT-33
Makarov PM
Stechkin APS
Walther PPK

Shotguns, well, you could get by wit ha generic 12 gauge pump, a generic 12 gauge side-by-side, cut down or not, and maybe the following specific guns:

Okay, time for my minigun hate-on.

As an infantry or vehicle weapon, miniguns are terrible. They're heavy, expensive, make noise even when you're not firing, require a powerful electrical generator to operate, and are abso-fucking-lutely guaranteed to waste more ammo than any other possible solution. They have a niche as aircraft/AA/antimissile weapons because the speeds involved create tiny target windows which you want to fill with as much lead as possible.

As a ground-based weapon against ground-based targets, they're useless. A conventional MG is better in every possible way, including its lower rate of fire. Using a minigun against infantry means burning through your entire ammo supply in seconds, and sending 99.9% of it through the spaces between your enemies, or in the space recently occupied by a dead enemy's chest cavity. Hitting a single enemy infantryman with 2 or 3 rounds from a SAW is preferable to hitting that enemy with 20 from a minigun.

No modern army uses miniguns as infantry weapons; a post-apocalyptic force would have even less reason to do so.

>> No.14890912

I absolutely agree, and I almost didn't include them in my list, but I decided to go with rule of cool. If I had to take a machine gun in a post-apocalypse scenario (And it wouldn't be my first choice), I'd probably go with a FN MAG.

Things Miniguns are good for:

Got any vintage, curio or homemade weapons?

As a person with a high interest in early firearms, I love them.

>> No.14891024

Actually, in the US, you can own full-auto weapons (At least in most states), but only ones that were registered before 1986, and you have to pay a $200 dollar tax as well as at least a few grand for the gun itself, not to mention the cost of ammo. So you can, but it's wicked expensive.

>> No.14891033

(in the US) you can own pretty much any fully-automatic weapon. as long has you have the necessary paperwork and pay for it.

hell, you CAN own autocannons. its just that you have to pay $200 a pop for the ammo. + the paperwork.

>> No.14891039

The Sten was an interesting, simple design. The simplicity is evident in that the variants produced in Denmark were built with the equipment of a bicycle repair shop.

I'm not sure if it's just English bias, but I love the STEN. It's simplicity is fantastic.

The Swedish M/45 is a good design, but it just wasn't as widespread as the sten. Though it's probably more reliable.
