Iron Falcons - Saracen Gunship
I have been itching to throw this up on the site for nearly a week now but time constraints and other stuff just keeps getting in the way. With my Griffin Dropship project on hold whilst I await the ABS card arriving from the USA I thought I would make a start on one of the two Gunship conversions I want to make for my Chapter.

I basically wanted to do a conversion that would utilise just the Stormraven kit and plasticard, so that anyone else wanting to do the same would be able to follow a tutorial I plan to make (coming soon :biggrin:).

The main thing I loathe about the Stormraven is that GW seemed to have several good designs but couldn't decide which one to use and just threw them all together making the 'butt-ugliest' kit I have ever seen (well, that and the Dread-ful Knight)!

My other contention with it is they have dubbed it a 'Gunship' which it aint...it's a flying APC - Gunships are just that...flying killy death machines with only one purpose - annihilate the enemy! Look at the Spectre Gunship...you get my point!

In the true spirit of the meaning of a Gunship, here is my vision of what the Astartes would employ. Think of the scene from Die Hard 4 with the F35 Joint Strike Fighter hovering over Brucie boy and trying to blow him away (or the Terminator Hunter Killers) and you get the kind of thing I am after.

Though not yet complete I have a few WIP shots to tease you with. I will put up some more info later today or tomorrow...for now gotta go to work. Enjoy. :biggrin:

Looking good mate! I look forward to seeing the end result here.

looking awesome. Another of your tutorials I'll be following once I get some spare cash and plasticard!

This has a boatload of potential, keep it up!

An excellent looking model.
Reminds me of G-Police, the old PSX game.

Looking forward to more

Ahh, G-Police, that's a blast from the past. I had the PC version...I sucked at it :laugh:

Awesome! I'm definitely gonna use this when you make the "How to" guide :)

TheReverend 04-22-11 07:22 AM

Mate, this looks a boat load better than the Stormraven, I'm definitely making one of these when you put the "how 2" guide up! Looking forward to seeing the end result

Cheers guys. I am making a start on the second one today so I will be taking numerous photo's to try and help folk out...a picture says a thousand words right? I didn't take many of the original as I was more intent on trying to make sure it worked out properly. It's definitely much more streamlined without having to resort to lengthening the model.
