Default "Counts-as" Stormraven

I know there has been alot of speculation and conversions around for the BA's new gunship. I wanted to get your guys' take on this.



The X-304 "Daedalus" from Stargate. A flying brick, as is typical for SM ships, with 2 carrier bays for the assault ramps.

I understand the proportions will be off, and that I'll be using a cardstock model, but, what do you guys think about this? I'll be adding on the weapons and such..but until we get a model from GW for this or I can figure out another way to model it..

I think your Daedalus is missing the parts batween bays and hull. Or is this Intentionally?

Im just a dumb girl and English is not my native language. So sorry for mistakes :-).

not my model, just one I found. and yes, it is missing the inside pods.

And the Stormraven is a Heavy Support choice for BA, so it is playable in core and Apoc. It is basically a flying Land Raider.

not quite, i believe it only has 12 AV allround, so not as durable as a LR but just as many weapons

And immune to Melta special rule. And allows for DS anywhere along its flight path..there are going to be differences, but it is essentially a flying land raider.

It's a load of overpowered bullshit if you ask me.

But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

Back to the model itself , I like it, I think eith some 40 weapons it would look good. Be sure to keep up posted on your progress.

sorry, rambled a bit there.

back on topic, it would need to be smaller than a Land Raider, and definitely not the scale of the Daedalus from Stargate.
