i called it that cause its on the ground, and to follow good form should therefore have Sky in the name.

The Assault Cannon needs more huge. For one, it has no ammunition. Secondly, it's almost grotesquely disporportionate at the back. other than that, it's good.

great model, but the sassault cannon spoils it a bit. :unsure:

raise it and shorten the heavy bolter body.

other than that it's brilliant. Don't forget to write a datasheet for it for apocalypse

I've always wanted to build something like that...

Love it!

Great stuff!

I like it, i've seen speeders converted into jeeps before, I'm always a big fan. You definitely have to add an ammo box or something for the AC, and a firing shield wouldn't hurt either. Add a little protection to the guy.

what do you mean by grossly disproportionate at the back?

If it was smaller in the back it would be disproportionate to the enlarge barrels which are about 2x the size of the LRC ones.

as for ammo, I am aware that it has none, I want to belt feed it from the ammobox on the side, but havn't figured out how to do it yet, I want it to be flexible so it can move and be removable when the turret eventually gets destroyed.

as for a data sheet, I'm not bothering, using it as a ground vehicle would make it utterly useless and fragile. I simply count it as a land speeder tempest.

I just took another look at it, the bolters on the front look a bit out of place, especially since there is a HB literally right on top of it.

the TL bolters are the drivers weapon. plus they fill in the gap of the bike armor plates.

That is badass Eng, sweet as hell. I have seen similar conversions like this with land speeders but this one is prime. I do have to agree with the asscannon comments a bit though: something about it is.... off.

DAMN SEXY DUDE! (a bit redundant but.....) AC is a bit off.... dunno what it is it looks a bit too big however shortening it wouldnt help IMO. Perhaps building a shield thing for it....

Great work nonetheless

Eng, that thing is awesome.

I have to agree a bit with some of the others, though--the ass cannon is a bit too much-- maybe make another exactly the same, but the top just had some missle pods! Badass!

Love the conversion..., as for the AC: perhaps its the seat that the guy is sitting on? Does the AC really need a gunner? Perhaps it can be mounted on its own?

Sorry, I'm Babbling!..., keep up the good work.:eek:k:

nah thats unacceptable, the entire point of this was the seated turret conversion.

I really dislike unmanned turrets on light vehicles

everyone keeps saying its too big, but part of my original concept was a massive asscan, I think it will all be in perspective when I do eventually get the beltfeed in there.

i wouldn't say that this model is incomplete, but it isn't finished, as are any of my models.
