The siege turret has been getting a major overhaul due to high demand for a bigger gun:

Made the cannon sliiiiightly smaller, but tweaked it further.

Double the length of the front barrel section I think that would make it look more impressive.

Ok, I've lengthened the barrel:

Also, tweaked the targeting device of the Firefly slightly. If there's nothing else that needs to be added, the kit is ready to be shipped:

The design does indeed make more sense now. Let me know if anything regarding the turret or plasma cannon sponsons needs to be changed, if not this one can be sent over to Vanguard for printing and casting. :)

Ok ok ok, a mist has slightly faded away...

Started working on a Centurion variant with a big plasma cannon. I'm a bit in doubt in which direction I should go though. I've made one version with the plasma cannon on a normal turret and a beefier one on the siege turret. Please let me know your preference:

Another option would be to have the thinner cannon mounted on the siege turret:

I'm having a hard time picking up the differences between the normal and siege turrets.

But regardless of turret, I definitely prefer the thinner plasma gun.

The siege turret is little under 50% taller, the right one of the first pic and the left one on the second and third pic.

I'd say smaller plasma gun for sure.

Could we have a shot of the smaller gun on both turret sizes please.
