White Scar Jetbike Conversion

Read through Brotherhood of the Storm again and well it got me thinking. I love converting stuff, I just have problems with painting, but this conversion came to mind, what do you think about the following combined.

Yeah, I'm so tempted to do it, I dunno if it's exactly like the jetbike used in the book, if you go by the front cover, which is more like the Master of the Ravenwing Jetbike.

I have a master of the ravenwing metal jetbike though, but it's metal so it's hard to mess with, it has one of the hands of the master of the ravenwing gripping the handle, which is the same arm of the white scar piece has holding up. It also has a robe over his legs and carries a plasma cannon which means it can't be a character :/

Even just a straight body swap would work for this! It would look really cool. I've often toyed with the idea of making a White Scars army JUST for all the bikes. What are you trying to get out of this conversion? Do you play games where you get to use those models as jet bikes or would you do a 'counts as' for games of 40K and use this as your HQ?

In the 30k Legion List you can have Jetbikes and Jetbike HQs.

I dunno though, at the moment I've just finished my first squad of Ultramarines, but maybe I could do some White Scars as allies. I just really like converting things, I got a looted OrK Valkyrie in my cupboard I've put together but have yet to paint and I don't even know if I'm going to end up with an Ork army lol.

I've perused the Legion rules as per a pdf version of the book, pretty impressed. If only I lived in the UK and didn't have to deal with overseas shipping...I think my band needs to go on tour. I could totally fill a speaker cab with sprues for the trip home. Plastic is super light, right???

Yeah, but takes up a lot of space if you leave it on the sprue frame, better taking the bits out and putting them in a little plastic bag.

hahaha good idea! Though since my bass player's currently in Australia I doubt it will happen any time soon unfortunately :'(.

As for this jetbike: build it! Do you have any pictures of this looted Valkyrie? I've always loved that the savvy Ork player can buy just about any 40k vehicle sprue and make it theirs.
