Modular Arms by Keithwormwood Modular Arms by Keithwormwood
1. General Purpose-
Standard issue, and with a universal application in mind, this frame presents a basic weapon for infantry use.
2. Black Ops Role-
This rifle is intended for clandestine and internationally illegal roles in assassination and hostile territory reconnaissance. A large, baffled sound suppressor surrounds the shortened barrel. The magazine in question is actually an under-barrel helical system housing 50 rounds. A padded brass catcher covers the whole ejection port, functionally silencing even the action of the bolt, and collecting bullet casings to lessen forensic evidence.
3. CQB/ Security Role-
This version has been rechambered for pistol rounds, and the barrel has been drastically shortened. A slanted foregrip has been installed to control climb, and a sliding stock has been fitted (seen unextended here). This version of the weapon would be used with concealment in mind, for close quarters security roles, or for use by tank and artillery crews.
4. Heavy Support Role-
A large box feed of belted, tumbling rounds replaces the old magazine, and a downwards directed flash suppressor and bipod are fitted to the end of the barrel. A carrying handle is fixed to the top of the frame.
5. Close Support Role-
An independent, under-barrel 40mm grenade launcher has been attached to this rifle for use by grenadiers. An extended iron grenade sight points up from the gun frame. An opened trigger frame extends down to the base of the grip, allowing the weapon to be used by gloved hands.
6. Sniper Role-
An extended barrel offers more rifling for enhanced accuracy, and the scope jacks straight into a primary processor (then fed into a goggle’s HUD). The magazine has been shortened to better facilitate prone shooting, and the standard grip has been replaced with a robotic fixture for the sake of immediate and enhanced trigger pulls. The hand fixture would attach straight to the wrist of the user.
7. Paratrooper Role-
A ceramic bayonet is affixed to the front of the shortened barrel, and a folding stock can dramatically shorten the overall length of the rifle when needed.

I love the weapon, the variations, and most of all, I love the thoughtfulness you put into the description.

Your weapon is awesome, thanks for fave

Very nice work :D
Bjornieman Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012
Funny they're all based on the AK47. That makes them pretty easy to recreate as actual weapons.
Also, that suppressed Bizon SMG thing with a SVD stock, second from the top. I want to make it into an airsoft replica, even if the costs eat me.
Gavinlimkj Featured By Owner May 28, 2012
Real nice. This gives me loads of ideas... What era are this supposed to be in? The present? Something about it makes me thing WW1/WW2... Probably the fact that you illustrated for Leviathan. :D

These would be a mid to late 20th century technological level. Doesn't mean they're from a contemporary setting though.
BrowncoatMando Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2015  Hobbyist
I've been using them in the 2020s forward as a development of current Kalashnikov family weapons.
Gavinlimkj Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
Ah, thanks for the reply :D Was planning on modeling some Nerf guns after some of these designs... Maybe... I have a few plans in mind that I'll try out eventually. :)

Looks like a bunch of pimped AEK-971s.

austin57 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012

Geke-sulen Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012  Student Artist
I made a Pimp my gun remake of the top weapon.
Here a link to it: [link]

How wonderfully ironic. The weapon that I find to arm my Leviathan universe soldiers is drawn by the man who does the artwork for the book itself.

lordxeras Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2011   Traditional Artist
Is it strange that the thing I love most about your art is the amount of detail and attention you put on firearms?
MclaneJeremiah Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011
I wish modern gun designers try Your concepts.
lordxeras Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011   Traditional Artist
I can see the Dragunov Sniper rifle has some heavy inspiration in these.
CosmOSmocker Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011  Student General Artist
helical drum ammo case powaaaa ^^
WightMamba Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
#3 looks like an HK MK9 and #4 looks like an RPD

i love these guns, did you just sketch them? I've never been able to draw 3-D guns or any drawing tbh, maybe you should do a tuturial
ConnorSwift Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
i just took another look at the guns today and i realized how awesome your guns are here. i definitly would not mess with an army armed with those.
nintendo360 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010
are these from the KALSHINKOV?
Keithwormwood Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010  Professional
nintendo360 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010
if you meant to say fail, the KALASHNIKOV is the famous AK-47. Kalshnikov is the k in AK-47 AND its the inventors last name
The-Infamous-TCT Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
wow, these should really a DD ^u^ because that's X-elent (lol I'd suggest it to be one but I don't know how ^^; )
Nightbringer24 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
These are awesome and they all look like they could be used in a post-apocalyptic setting. Very cool man.
DreadHaven Featured By Owner May 4, 2010
you have quite the talent in weapons. keep up the good work.
Arlioz Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010
Where are your other mechs? they're like steam punk, but still anime scifi mechs?
NickBeja Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009  Student Digital Artist
oh damn it'd be so cool to have that black ops gun. XD
Noctumanie Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2009
yeeesssz! ^^
love the ak/dragunov-design.
real good work!
Umbaflarg Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2009
Very nice. At first I thought they were real models. (They arnt based on any are they?)
MMKH Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome concepts! I like how the base weapon is versatile and can have many combinations!
Klaus-Nick Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2009
Cool, I have always been a fan of the Dragunov.
Helmet-the-Cadaver Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2009
What is this for? Some sort of a video game or a show?
GosteOner Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
#2 could come in handy :plotting:
TheFoundingFields Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2009   General Artist
hmm... thats cool. i like how you put a M203 on number five i think. its intersting to see a Spetsnaz trooper put a Forty MIKE-MIKE through a door and get some meat rounds flying back...

anyways. great fucking kick ass gun artwork. good on ya!

also i like your dragunov barell type of front rifling. it fits.
DaytonaBlue64Impala Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
Not a big fan of Kalashnikovs but this looks great! Fantastic job with the detail!
sobercollegekid23 Featured By Owner May 26, 2009
Nice concepts. This rifle seems to be derived from the SKS, or is it?
Nolo84 Featured By Owner May 10, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Why does the Heavy Support Role version vent its gasses downwards? This increases muzzle climb and decreases long-range effectiveness.
