    Valkyrie Model; Where's the Lascannons?

    Hey guys.
    I just cracked open my new Valkyrie model and to my amazement I only see one single Lascannon. I was reading the codex and it said that a Vendetta can carry 3 (THREE) twin linked Lascannons.
    Instead all I see is just a single Lascannon that glues near the hull. Even this wouldn't count as twin linked because there is only one barrel!

    Am I missing something, or do you have to do your own conversions for a Vendetta?
    And how would you ever make the hull mounted Lascannon twin linked?

    I appreciate the help and advice,
    Thanks!

    Hey Burke888, sorry to be the bearer of the bad news but the Valkyrie box does not include the pieces necessary to construct a Vendetta.

    I dug into my bitz box for 2 extra HWS Lascannons for the hull and then took the leftover TL-LC sponsons from a Land Raider Crusader for the wings.

    I'm sure there are other options, but I'm happy with the way mine turned out.


    Good luck with the conversions!

    Planeswalker,

    Very good looking Valkyrie!
    I have exactly five left over Lascannons from my heavy weapon teams that I plan on using.


    EDIT;
    Just re-read your post. I see the two Lascannons out on front. Hmmmm, I was planning on adding to the single hull mounted one.
    Do you think people may say that having it mounted on the tip of the hull gives an unfair advantage for line of sight rules?

    If you look at the front nose of the hull, you'll see my solution. I just cut 2 LC's at an angle and mounted them there. I was also able to cut that stabilizer piece thing to fit nicely around the far barrel.

    Edit (Answer): I don't think it will as the hull mounted variant will still require you to have the Vendetta pointing directly at your target. If they have a problem with the modeled location, you can always measure range from the hull mounts.

    I don't know of a way to do them in those positions without converting one of the inserts but if I recall, the HWS LC's are not the same size as the "passenger side" insert. Too much work and I like the way they look on the nose.

    Just did a bit of searching and I found something that may be of value:

    I am going to try to replicate this using extra lascannon bits from the heavy weapons teams.

    Thats what I'm going to do as well

    Although the Terminus Lascannons does look cool... I'm modifying mine to match the proposed FW kit

    I think I'm going to go for the single Predator lascannons on each wing. It won't be two barrels, but it also won't cost me anything extra.

    I spoke to the forgeworld guys at the openday in April. They said the foregworld vendetta upgrade would be releases soon. they were aiming for it to be ready for the release day of the plastic kit but this hasn't happend. Hopefully It won't be too long and I can order six to transport my Elysians.

    the reason you don't get them in the kit to start with is very simple, its a Valkyrie kit, NOT a Valkyrie/Vendetta kit
