I'd definitely suggest a Corvus Blackstar. They are very simple to convert so they proxy a Valkyrie and once all the Inquisition symbols are removed, they look extremely rugged and functional :) :

Plus, there's also the fact that the Corvus Blackstar is also just a beautiful model. I was thinking of using it as a Stormraven for my Dark Angels (fits their aesthetic more than the actual Stormraven does :lol:)

I completely agree. It looks aggressive and a bit like a 'sledgehammer to crack a nut' sort of thing :) .

 

The Pic I posted is my Valkyrie counts as for my Astra Millitarum Squats... particularly, it's "Duh Chopper" for this little band of Predator hunters :) :

I want to kick the back out though to make a large troop area. Think like a fat Valkyrie

 

The only thing with the corvus is its more like an attack fighter than a troop transporter.... stubby wings which is perfect valk for squats. 

 

Think elongated Storm raven with a container under the rear

A bit like a Storm Eagle then?

If you are converting a Storm Raven, I hope you lose the ridiculous turret/air intake assembly from the top. It will make the thing look less top heavy.

Stormraven on order...
I like the corvus but I want to something like a Hercules troop carrier plane. They type of aircraft that could drop a few squads at once.

Will post updates when the cutting begins!!

I'm curious to see how you extend the fuselage. That's the biggest issue with that flyer...

There is a tutorial in the wip thread I believe with stencils for the plasticard
Maybe have been a Ravenguard related thread...

Im still waiting for the Stormraven to arrive so I thought Id sharpen up on my building skills

I had a front and back from a bastion laying around and I always had an idea for a comms outpost 

With a bit of plasticard here we are... just need to base on wood and paint

So the storm raven came and it was a glue bomb. almost wish Id spent the extra £20 getting a new one. 

Never mind, I got some Dremel practice

 

Heres where we are

gallery_46766_15816_116162.jpg

 

Im thinking of this configuration without putting the tail back on 

 

gallery_46766_15816_30418.jpg

 

Im about to hit it with an undercoat so I can see where I need to gap fill and smooth 

 

Still unsure if I want the wings like they are above or flat. 

Will push the engines back behind the rear so the side doors are accessible

The Astra Militarum flyer looks most promising. What will you name it? "Steel Raven" or "Ironraven"? "Steel Storm" or "Ironstorm"? "Mjolnir" or "Swifthammer", as it looks like a winged hammer?

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Ok so finally got this out together over the christmas break

I want this to be a flying tank so ive the fun job of applying rivets

Ive also gone backwards and forwards with what to do with the sides. Either add sponsons with heavy bolter, side doors or (what Ive decided to do) armour plates. The assumption is the back door will work for disembarking

 

So just need a few more armour plates, rivets, drill bolters, add side doors and then a new cockpit cover (Ive got a pilot) and its onto paint!

So Ive added the doors to the side of this and its ready to paint. 

I want it to be a flying tank but dont know if I should paint it like my valk or go mad and do it in camo

I like the angular camo that the Kashyyk droids have in starwars so tempted to try that. 

 

If I do that I cant do the panel shading that I did on the Valk though without a lot of work 

 

Any thoughts?

I think it looks beautiful as it is :wub:
I second that. If you want a camouflaged Valkyrie, better assemble and paint another model, instead of risking the already good paint job on this one. To justify the different color schemes, say the camouflaged one is a Tempestus Scions transport, painted that way so the "glory boys" can feel "special."

Flying tank tooka  step closer to completion

 

One benefit of working at home is that Ive had time on breaks to work on this.

Base camo done.... got the metal work to do then its onto seal and oil washes! 

Theres still a bit of tidying up to do on the camo. I airbrushed the green and forgot how much of a pain hand blocking colours can be!
