Welcome to Librarium Online!
Overall, I am nothing short of amazaed at how good everything turned out. Vehicle conversions are far more difficult to do then infantry conversions, and it took me several tries before I found componants that worked together.
I tried to as little of the tau hull as I could, because, while it has the correct sleek look that fits in with the valkyries themselves, the tanks are not tau tanks, they are Valkyrie Space Marine Tanks, so, hopefully, I didn't use so much that it's going to get in the way and confuse people.
Anyway, onto the pics.
Vehicle #1 Striker Battle Transports. An Orbiital Insertion Transport. I am very happy with the way the front of the vehicle turned out. To me, it looks like it could withstand the heat of atmospheric entry. The wooden dowles coming out from the winglets will be painted to be manuvering thrusters. With the additional boosters on the back, it looks like it could easily get back into orbit when it needs to. This will have the same rules as a rhino.
Vehicle #2 Tsunami Battle Tanks. An Orbital Insertion Battle Tank. I tried to follow the tradition of a battle-tank and a transport-tank looking like they were made from the same template. I am particularly happy about the radiation cannon, which bombards an area with levels of radiation that literally liquifies troopers inside their armor, turning them into a substance not unlike pea soup that spills out the seams in the armor making a horrible puddle.
Rules-wise, this will have the same rules as a Vindicator with a machine spirit, a storm bolter, and a pintle-mounted storm bolter.
And here's a couple shots of the fleet all-together.
Enjoy, everybody. Pics of the Thundervina coming soon.
you seriously have way too much time and money on your hands, maybe you could give me some
They look like mini thunderhawks to an extent !! Nice work as usual Dr Thunder.
Now stop converting and paint a squad and a vehicle, stick some photos up, and make us more greeneyed thatn we already are !!

Look like Robotech/Macross parts to me...
I always assemble everything before I paint anything, but, don't worry, we are getting close.Originally Posted by D4RKN3SSThe Dark-Green fast packs on the back are from Robotech Model Kits, the Light Green rocket boosters and the nose area are both from 1/144th scale gundams.where did you get the coloured parts from?
The cannon is a smoke stack from a cities of death mechanicus building.
