It is certainly different, Genesis108. The proportions look a bit odd, when compared to the Marine, imo, however. Itís nothing bad, of course. Just a bitÖ Short. How strong/stable is it at the moment? It looks a bit flimsy to me, but I donít really want to make any preemptive judgments. A nice new take on something that Iíve never truly been able to imagine, however. Have some rep mate, keep up the good work!

You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'

As far as stability goes, with just the Depron frame, it can hold quit a bit of weight. I had a bottle of PVA, my Land Raider, metal Dread, and a small Book sitting on it for weight to keep the card flat on the top and it didn't cave, buckle, or even bow. so it is quite stable, and once i get the card on the sides to bulk it up, it will ad more strength to it. The dimensions are a bit askew, but..there isn't anything really to go on, so..I liked it, saw plenty of potential in the ability to modify the design with minimal effort or risk, and decided to go for it. Once it is armoured up and has bits added onto it, I'm sure it will look more proportionate. If not, I can always add to it.

Progress is proceeding slowly. The process of covering the bird in Card is a painstakingly slow one. I will get some pictures up this evening to show what I have completed thus far.

The Fore-fuselage pilots cabin, I've had an idea. Instead of the typical canopy style like the Valkyrie, I am going to make it fully encased using an old bit from the 2nd Edition Rhino kit, making the front look similar to the Forgeworld Land Speeder Tempest, with the View-Port and the rest is armoured. After all, this is the 41st Millenium..they should(and will) have sensors to help fly this thing, why do they need to visually see anything..? :D

Well, as promised, here is the update of where I am so far. I have about 25% of it covered in card. I have the Assault Cannons mounted and the View-Port bit piece thingy in place as well as a vehicle hatch. I will be continuing to cover it in card over the next few days until it is almost completely covered. Some areas will be left uncovered and simply treated with a PVA wash to protect it. I have a few areas where the card isn't meeting that I'll have to do some work on..but it is slowly starting to come together. And with that, here you are...

That looks crazy!

You might want to hand undercoat this, as the foam will melt when you spray primer it.

It's definitely a interesting take on Stormravens, but I like it when people think outside of the box!

Nice stuff, have some rep for some outside box thinking! ;)

Paint will come when it's done being covered, Fallen.

Kobra, Thanks. That's why I am covering it in card. One, it will add strength to it, and two, it will protect it from the spray prime. The areas I am not putting card on will get a good healthy coat of some thinned PVA so the foam doesn't melt there. .

I am hoping to finish having it covered by the middle of next week at the latest. I am ordering the bitz I need on Monday and should have them in a week or so, hopefully. So with any luck, the first bird should be done within the next 10 days or so, barring any holdups with the bitz..
