A Plasma Gun stays clean even in battle cuz every shoot makes the gun this hot, that dirt and dust burn away. Only the muzzle and it's heat-vents on the sides should be scorched.

yeah, i'm just starting to get a little better at texturing.
weathering and details are still my weak point though.

i'll see about adding some more details later on.

I just want to know if it will be set to potentially, randomly explode, like any self respecting piece of Guard equipment should!

A plasma gun is a generic term for a two handed, rifle like, plasma based weapon used by the forces of the Imperium as well as Chaos in a support role. The weapon fires a highly energised ball of hydrogen based plasma. This plasma ball or 'bolt' is accelerated through a magnetic accelerator, which upon impact with the target detonates with the power of a small sun. Generally Imperial models are prone to overheating and can cause severe injury or death to the user should they experience such a meltdown. Imperial Guardsmen consider it a dubious honor to be chosen as a squads plasma gunner for this exact reason. Aesthetically they appear to be stubby and rather clunky, with a ribbed back and flared cooling vents along the front. Hydrogen flasks stick out of the butt, and bottom of the weapon. These flasks generally contains enough fuel for at least 10 shots before needing to be replaced. Replacing these flasks is time consuming and difficult in the best of situations. Handheld plasma guns can be found throughout the Imperial war machine, from the mighty Imperial Guard to the elite Space Marines.
