    Ok a though just happened to strafe my mind...
    If I'm not completely wrong then the Imperial sentinels should be possible to deep stike right?

    Ok, how do you make the sentinel look like it was designed for this kind of duty?
    Give it arms to carry the gun!

    My idea sort of came from Robotech.
    If you take the Human veratechs in that series as the ground pillar idea woulden't the sentinels look much more....capable?

    Let me hear views please...

    a guy from my hobby shop, put a sentinel in a huge crate, as if it were just like an air dropped package or something. He&#39;s got 3, one is actually in the box with it&#39;s gun sticking out, another has a wall of the box still up the others fell down already i guess....it&#39;s a good idea, and doesn&#39;t look bad nor does it change how the sentinels already look

    I&#39;m talking about making them like having two legs and two arms, carrying the actual gun around like some assault rifle...

    The reason for the arms is that the sentinel does have close combat attacks, but I don&#39;t really see a very good way that it can use them.
    So why not give it arms like maybe the wraithlord?

    And for the deepstrike capability, why not give it fold back wings or something?

    you could model it with a jump pack, one that looks like the Sm one. the model it to look like it just landed, so in a crouching position where it has bent its legs to absorb the impact.

    Maybe that...

    Yeah I&#39;ll do that, I really like that idea...
    Use the jumppack as some sort of retrorocket thing right?
    I&#39;m still thinking of adding some foldback wings to it, to make it more like it actually landed and not got thrown into the ground :rofl:

    But I&#39;m still thinking of using the arms idea and with rifle type weaponry...

    It would work even better with arms, im thinking of the pose that Arnie arrives in when he &#39;teleports&#39; in terminator 3, that kind of thing.

    Well then...good luck when imagining a sentinel crushing a carnifex underfoot...

    How about giving the sentinel huge feet?

    "Ok squad...stomp away&#33;"

    Give me time, it&#39;s christmas now, and I&#39;m soon going in to the army for a year.
    I&#39;m gonna try to persuade my officers to let me bring some stuff with me, and maybe I&#39;ll have something finished in a few months time...

    I&#39;m also thinking about converting a defiler in the same way as with my sentinel idea here...

    Just mount it on two legs and let it carry a huge earthsahker cannon around
