Looks good so far.

As a note: rail guns use magnets to fire metallic projectiles and would not have a visible firing effect. Which makes them really dull and boring in a movie despite the fact that they are a devastating weapon.

i DUNNO - WHILE YOU ARE COMPLETELY CORRECT FOR A SIMPLE RAILGUN, (oops caps!), there's nothing to say you can't mix technologies - for example using a railgun to launch a small steerable simple missile.

Whilst I personally love credible designs, sometimes its OK to step back and just do something that looks cool! (perhaps the most obvious example being visible laser beams)

Nice work Mike!

All the video I've seen of real railguns firing tend to suggest there's plenty of 'effect' to be seen. If anything they're more spectacular than similar sized gunpowder weapons, although I imagine a good deal of that would be lost in a vacuum.

Exactly, because what you are witnessing is air compression and condensation effects, as well as kicking up dust etc.

Don't go overboard with nurnies as I'm not seeing a lot in the artist's sketches.

I recognize that shape, it is from The Chronicles of Man universe. Looks cool to see it in 3D!

(oops, apologies, just noticed that this was a necropost)
