Life's been a bit hard these past couple of months, but I'm just getting back into hobbying. Thought I'd share my latest conversion work. I've been converting up some Hydras but rather than go the autocannon route, I thought I'd base them of the British Army Starstreak close air defence system ....
Here's what I've come up with ....
There was quite a bit of work involved with converting the chimeras as they were a trade and in a pretty bad state. If you're interested in the work involved, it's detailed on my blog ...
Corbania Prime: Starstreak Hydra prep'd
Corbania Prime: Second Starstreak finished
Hope you like them guys.
Very cool idea. What did you use for the turrets? Are those Forge World bits?
Looks like it, yeah.
Really cool work, it gives them a contemporary look while still keeping the 40K feel. Not really my cup of tea - I'm a fan of the great big guns hammering skyward, myself... But a very nice execution, nonetheless.
will look at this in detail later - i wanted to do some aegis defence line turrets, but this has merit.
Well, I have the aegis defence lines, and some knackered chimeras, but i'm inclined to keep the guns as scenery.
(maybe putting them on rhino hatch "cupolas" so they're removable may work)
However, you've inspired me. A battery of HKM's like the sentinal missiles, as they're sleeker, saving my stubby old ones for another project i have.
I like the mesh hatching, and the hatch over the turret attachment. (hmm... keep the turrets for more home grown defence line stuff).
what to do r.e. the holes at the sides.... maybe bendy straws up to a raised bit i'd set the gun mount into.
and the radar dish.... SM rhino dish? LR Crus dish (no spare... they are bigger... hmm) maybe some sort of jimmied light fitting... The Vendetta "smooth" light panel, or maybe some light fitting from a scenery piece.
