    Wave Serpent Conversion?

    God those Wave Serpents look Fugly, but I think I'll be needing one for my new army... Anyoe got some links/pics of converted Wave Serpents? I'd love to see some... The Turret is the Fugliest bit, and the shield prongs and the back look pretty daft also... Any ideas?

    Well as far as conversion go, you can go for the even more ugly Falcon to Wave Serpent conversion that was done before the Wave Serpent kit came out, or you can go the route of forgeworld.

    Path of the Exodite: Wave Serpent

    The other alternative, is to kitbash the turret of the Falcon with the body of the Wave Serpent, and a Forgeworld kit.

    Forge world kit looks dead nice, I like the Falcon turret idea too. Could I buy a falcon and but the forge world kit on it with the Falcon turret? Mind you I'm then paying £130 for one piece of plastic, to go on the back...

    The second link in Noracco's post is the scratchbuilt conversion from a Falcon, not the forgeworld upgrade kit.
    As far as converting Falcon's into Wave Serpents with the Forgeworld Wave Serpent conversion kit, I'm doing one right now, It's fairly straightforward and if you're using the Falcon turret with the Wave Serpent guns, all you really need to do is extend the cargo bay on the back with some plasticard and you should be good to go.

    Edit: You're actually paying for the piece on the back, and the two side extensions, you'd be paying for the new turret swivel point and turret top too, but you're using the Falcon turret, so that part is useless. Oh, and it's resin, not plastic.

    The kit is meant for a falcon as the turret fits nicely when u take out the falcon turret. i know cause i have 4 falcons and only 1 original serpent so i needed some kits..there are bits for a turret, the choosen guns of the kit (you will need to manually convert other guns to fit this one with pinning) energy projectors and the front stuff

    If anyone wants another Forgeworld conversion kit, I have one for trade. I decided I liked the look of the new WS better.

    It's the pieces you add on to the Falcon to make a Waveserpent. Comes with dual scatter lasers and I think I have an extra dual brightlance to go with it.
    Poor SM players, used to S4 T4 3+ saves that forget 40K is a sophisticated Rock-Paper-Scissors game and all they have is a pocket full of rocks.

    Hello... Do you mean this one?

    Waveserpent Type II

    or this one?

    Scatter Laser Wave Serpent Turret

    I'd trade the first one but not realy interested in the second one te be honest.

    The second one. I decided I liked the newer kits better (as I received two of them for my birthday last year).

    Figured there might be somebody out there who wants another conversion kit to go along with the ones they already have.

    I'd trae the turret definatly I'm jut not to bothered about the rest of it... What would you want for it. Could I use those bits on the "wings's" holofiel projectors? I got quite abit of stuff for sale so I could trade some of that... Eldar wise I got 3 falcons and 2 vypers. 2 of thhe falcons and both the vypers are painted black and white with the black glossy, I re painted the 3rd black falcon and it came out fine, no loss of detail. The 3rd (re-painted) Falcon is green and black. Just been trying out different colour schemes you see... Setlled on Biel-Tan though so it's all good Anyway this is turning into a sales pitch lol, message me if your interestedd.
