Hi guys, recently got my valkyrie and currently painting the interior before i stick the roof on and do the wings etc. A few ideas popped in my head for converting or making it look cooler.
1. Have part of the cities of death range building sections on the base in some form.
2. Have the valkyrie launching a missile with the typical wire cotton wool combo.
3. Have men rappelling out the back/sides.
4. Men on the base fighting off orksy scum.
5. Broken viechle of some sorts, maybe a piranha.
Or any combination of these ideas...
I have decided to make some rappelling guard coming out the back of the valkyrie... i really want several in different stages. To keep things simple i only want one rope. It needs to be removable for storage. Might magnetise the top part and then just hang it down.
I havent got my bits box of imperial guard back from my mate yet which has various cadian arms and bodys. But i need ideas on which parts to use.
As a basis i was thinking 1 or 2 guys on the base crouching down with lasguns ready to fire/firing and one on the rope and another about to drop.
Ideas, parts to use, techniques and material ideas all greatly appreciated...
I am working on the exact same thing right now! Its for the painting competition. I plan to use some of the assault weapon hands for holding the line because they are holding the smallest thing(small handle that is on the side of the weapon. That way it looks more like they are holding it rather than it just being stuck to a more open hand. I want 2 ropes on mine just to have them and they will be magnetized as well to the roof of the Valkyrie to give the most room for another guy reaching for it inside the Valkyrie.
As for ground troops, i did plan mine out as being the roof of a building as the ground and my men about to breach a door... But i was advised against making the base a building since i would have to explain what it is everytime someone looks at it.
Rope im not sure on yet, but ill rummage around for something good or just use some guitar strings.
Im going to pillage the Command sprue for some good arms that would make sence as holding onto a rope, and the running legs because they are close together as in hugging the rope.
Good luck to you!
haha btw during the writing of my original post i was going through my only spare guard bits i had and a did a small test with an old cadian and the special weapon arm. Seems like the best option to me. I also want an arm for his right hand where it might be like he is firing at an ork on the way down
might be cool
