    Imperial Assault Airship (IG Vendetta conversion)

    I've been wanting to add a Vendetta to my army for tactical reasons but a space-helicopter doesn't really fit my WWI style fluff and modeling, so I built a space-zeppelin instead. I call her the INS 'Oh the Humanity!'.

    I am rather happy with the result, and it is actually about the size size as a vendetta. (About the same length, a couple inches taller but the same amount narrower.)

    I think it will make an excellent centerpiece for the army, I just hope I don't ruin it in the painting process.

    Sorry of the poor image quality, all I have is my webcam.

    Comments or criticisms?

    Thanks, the envelope was taken from an old lego set from the adventurers theme.

    Okay, that's pretty sweet, Quercus.

    You do realize that you now have to have a recording of Herbert Morrison's commentary to play when somebody shoots her down, right??
    We've got plenty of youth... How about a fountain of smart?

    Nicely done. The valk engines on there make it look like some kind of Turbo-Blimp. So that's a big bonus.

    Hope to see some nice paint on there. What are you planning?

    It nice to see it can be done, compared to my failed concept below. I'm curious to know; is it a hazard on the board for knocking over and being top heavy?

    Thats the main problem I was worried about and the reason I stopped trying to build it.
