Welcome to Librarium Online!
I though of this last night. you can use a black hawk model to represent (or a least thats what I thoughs). The whole idea of this was to create a fligher that didn't cost as much (money wise) as the forgeworld ones and also that the points would cost less
BLACK HAWK/HUEY (got any ideas for the points?)
The BLACK HAWK/HUEY can have the same upgrades as in the vechile upgrade in the Ig codex (they can only have the upgrades sentinals can have).
F S R BS
12 10 10 3/4
adishally soldiers may fire out of the helicopter (useing their weapons)
This is something that I also need help with.
The Hawk is armed with 2 sidemounted Heavy Bolters. they side mount HB's fire the same way as side sponsers.
It has 1 hull mounted heavy stubber.
what scale should I have the hawk at.
what are your thoughts?
don't worry about the poll please i was just testing.

My thoughts are: WTF is up with your poll?
Secondly, a helicopter is lightly armoured. I'd go F-11 S/R-10(Open Topped). Make the weapons on it either a Heavy bolter mount that can fire out the sides, or a twinlinked missile launcher that shoots forward. The nose mounted weapon could be either a heavy stubber or sotrm bolter, just like all the tanks.
sorry about the poll (oppss). I have edited my first post.
It's not going to become a Open topped vechile, though. I thought a multi-laser would be better (in stead of the hull mounted H. also I didn't added BS (i have now though). I think it should be BS 4 as this represents the gunners giving covering fire while the troop disembark.

It's called a Valkyrie. I should know, I have two of them. They are pretty much exactly what you are looking for.
As of right now only Forgeworld (www.forgeworld.co.uk) sells them, and they are quite expensive
yes I know of the Valkyrie, but I want to create a flyer transport not so huge, expensive (rule and money wise) and heavy (weapons wise).
Oh ok, that's cool. I see your point. I would personally make it into some variant of the Valkyrie or at least something with VTOL capabilities considering that this is technology that the Imperium is already operating off of, instead of using helicopter blades.
However, if that's what you choose to do then I'm sure you can come up with a good explanation for why you want to use blades instead of VTOL.
To me it seems like your trying to power up your army....unfailry. (IMO)
You basically want a transport that flys and want the poeple to hop off as soon as it touches down, almost making Open tooped mandatory as you need to open the doors before you land, and for a quick disembarktion you need big doors, plus it has to be pretty light if your thinking Helicopter. You want the door gunners to have BS4 because as these people are jumping out of the same door your shooting from.
Yeah....not so sure on that...
Good idea, but it needs to be fairer.
well.....ehhhhhh good point. I suppose I could convert the model If I get one but the blades can just count as the VTOL mode. But of cause this transport is going to have the VTOL mode, otherwise how else would the guy's get of if the didn't have the drop troops doc?
do you think a 1/35 model would be good helicopter?
A poll that's pointless, thereby making the topics exactly the same? You know, there's a lot of grey stuff between your ears that you could think of using before you post. You know. Or if you're not using it you could feed some birds with it. Everyone loves birds.
