Samurai Vader by artrobot9000 Samurai Vader by artrobot9000
Fan painting of Star Wars except set in samurai times. The weapons the Stormtroopers are using are ancient chinese bolters reknown for multiple shots.

I always imagined that is the stormtroopers were samurai than they'd use the arquebus rather than crossbows, great work anyway

That would be a cool custom storm trooper. Like if a storm trooper was based of a samurai and a conquistador, it would have some good melee, and it would be armed with a wookie bowcaster/crossbow as the main weapon, and something the equivalent of a muzzle loader for back up....
Imperial Conquistador / Samurai Trooper.

The bolters are known for multiple shots, but they aren't the most accurate weapons.  Even that gets it so right! :)

Good detail! I like the technique. This is a very unique piece. I've seen Samurai DV before (his helmet etc was fashioned after the Samurai style and the movie had Samurai themes), but yours is very different, and that's a good thing.

I find myself wondering what the death star would be in this reality...
Does he have wooden arms and legs under there?

I think it'd be like a battleship except the size of rhode island.
