Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just made one! Has anyone else converted anything to be any of the new units in the new dex yet? I used a vyper kit with some random parts from a rhino kit and a raider kit! Turned out ok I think!
Looks really good to me! The transport platform seems big enough for the transport capacity of five, and it really has the look of a small, unobtrusive speed transport. You also did a good job of keeping the Dark Eldar feel even though you used a Craftworld model as the base. Good work! Rep for you!
Very nice! I must say.
Viper + new raider + old raider?
I would add some spikes on the cockpit part. but that's just minor details.
here, have some more Rep.

Its viper + new raider + old ravager. Im planning to add some more spikes to the front area, but ive green stuff'd 2 metal dark lances on the underside of the model to act as the 2 splinter cannons im giving it, and realised that gluing on spikes with precision isnt a good idea when green stuff is fresh and holding something heavy in place! haha.
Cheers for the feedback so far, its my first ever kit bash/real conversion so im happy with it! Now I need a way to turn my old grotesques into wracks, and a talos into a cronos.
Very nice work sir. Originally the Venom was the vehicle of choice for the Harlequins - seems funny that they don't get to ride in one now - your version looks very good and better than many others that I've seen.

I finally got around to working on this more thanks to having time of work due to snow! Added mroe spikes and stuff, and have it base coated before washing and shading, aiming to have it totally finished tomorrow! The third picture is blurry, but ive included it so you can see how I built it with enough space at the back for 5 models!
that venom is sick. very nice job man, i rate it
one thing, the helmets are painted different colours for Craftworld eldar, not Dark Eldar! otherwise, nice transport!
The reason for the helmet colouring is to do with the fluff for my army. My army is the Kabal of the starlight cascade, my idea is that they attack from above as a fully mechanised force, the purple and blue mixes in with the night sky so the only thing you can see from the ground is the pure white of the helmets and sails getting closer, and given the impression of twinkling like stars due to the torrent of dark energy fire coming from the sky.
Basically, as they attack they are percieved by the eye as a cascade of falling stars!
Plus i think it looks cool, haha!
gimpy, that's a very cool fluff you got there! It's great that you have envisioned a fluff for your army and make it show on the models themselves, that's the stuff that makes the hobbying fun. I wish I had such a nice fluff for my army, keep up the great work! (your venom looks awesome as well)
