I have a few squads of my Raptors already done but here are ny current projects.

Raptors seam fairly popular and I was even inspired to start my own from seeing quite a few raptors armys online. Something about that semi grounded aesthetic on space super soilders just seams right.

My backstory for my Raptors army is they are the 15th battle company with an overall focus on air imsersion and air support.

This is my Stormtalon conversion to look more like a attack hellicoptor. Not original but i think it turned out well.

This is my counts as Deredeo Dreadnought conversion. Its a tad tall but people I play with dont care if its modeling for disadvantage.

You've got some cool conversions in here! Great work and welcome to the forum!

 

For the thread, I think it would help readers if you could embed the links into your posts. You can do this by either clicking the Image icon when posting, and pasting the URL into the popup box, or alternatively, you can frame the URL with the code tags (img) and (/img) - replacing the round brackets with square brackets to display a picture in your post. I hope this helps.

 

Again, great work so far and welcome! Interested to see more work of yours in the future!

I applaud your efforts. I doubt the attack helicopter makes sense for Space Marines, as the term implies they often fight in the vacuum of space, where rotors and propellers will be useless; but if you want to make your own Airwolf or Blue Thunder, you deserve respect for what you showed those classics.

I love your Deredeo Dreadnoughts, though.

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.

Thanks very much for the encouragement! I have had a few people confused by my Space marine helicopter.

Almost all my conversions stem from not only wanting my army to feel unique, but generally from a personal dislike for an aesthetic of a model.

The in the case of the storm talon I hate how squashed it looks so I sought a way to improve that. I could have elongated it and left the rotor off but at that point it looked like a helicoptor anyway so I just leaned into it.

For the Deredeo I just hate the overall body shape so I had to use a different body.

Very cool conversions. Model away and if you enjoy it or love the aesthetic; than go for it.

Working on my Fire Raptor. Not the best when it comes to working with resin but I think it will make a nice center piece.

I love everything about this. All I hear while looking at this is CCR's "Fortunate Son"
Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

Because Im so happy with my ATVs I decided all my ground based Vechicals will be wheeled. It also helps keep In like with my Modern military Raptors vibe.

Also bought some fire strike turrets. I want to pit camo nets on them and make them hidden gun Implacements.

Really like the converted vehicles.
Nice work!

Long ago i saw a vietnam flying cavalry themed catachan army in a wd. It used landspeeders as choppers.
Even converted one into a flying basilisk.
You work reminds me of that

Nice!

This is my counts as Deredeo Dreadnought conversion. Its a tad tall but people I play with dont care if its modeling for disadvantage.

I love this, it reminds me so much of the old GDI Wolverines from C&C Tiberium Sun, can't wait to see it painted. 😁

By the Throne, I remember that army! How the hell do I remember that?! That WD was like, two decades ago... Still, that army was so well done, plus it's crazy to think that guy can probably be credited with inventing the first Land Speeder Storm over a decade beforehand it's release.

Beautiful work on the Deredeo. Did you take inspiration from the Timber Wolf (a.k.a. "Mad Cat"), from BattleTech?

Yeah I did. There was also a couple people mounting entire storm talons on legs that game me the idea too.
