Ok I've figured out how it all fits together. Used some of the roll cage bars to hold up the main gun, added some mags to the bolters and a bit of mesh for the gunner to stand on.

There's not much more to do now. The driver's seat back, somewhere for the bolt shells to come out and some filling here and there. And then two more of them!

 

C+C welcome as ever.

Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Thanks guys. I got a little bit of work done today. Mostly just gap filling under earth the thing, which is a bit boring. Added a couple of tiny chutes for shell cases above the magazines and a seat back. Just the filling to go now.

Ok, finished... apart from the small matter of painting the thing. And I'll scrape off a bit of excess GS that I can see now it's blown up to this size photo.

Here it is next to an unmodified invader, to show how much weight it lost.

I'm pretty happy with this, but unfortunately I'm not finished, because I want a unit of them. I've got this Invader and a third one to make into these, in theory. Hopefully the second and third ones will be quicker than the first.

 

C+C very welcome indeed.

Absolutely in awe of how well that conversion turned out, a very worthy successor to the attack bike. Have you thought about a tether for the gunner, to stop him from being quite so at the mercy of the elements? Even a cord to his belt i think might help him look a little less precarious.

You could totally take the pieces you took off while slimming them down to make a pretty sweet objective for your games.

This would look cool, but also he's got maglocks in his boots so not strictly necessary ;)

Great stuff. I'm tempted to convert some up for the Wolves, but the smaller width might be an issue for tournaments in my case.

Yeah this is something I've considered. Maybe his magnetic boots would remove the need, but it would look cool. Only thing is that he's not stuck on yet, to help with painting, and he'd need to be fixed for me to do this. Oh and making the actual fixings would be ridiculously fiddly.

This is certainly an issue. I thought about building this more in proportion to the original but in the end I decided to go with what looked best. It's narrower, longer and taller than an original attack bike. Could be an issue at some events. I'm thinking of keeping the spare wheels to do something with old scout bikes, if needed.

I see giving gunner some space worked wonders. Looking lovely, remember if you´re still wondering melta hitting drivers antenna, you can always snip that gnubbing under and just behind barrel off.

Thanks. I think maybe he'd get the aerial twanged from time to time, but that's no biggie. I think I'll give the infiltrator comms array to one of the other gunners actually, and maybe make the third into a Sergeant-type. Just to keep things interesting - they obviously won't have any effect in game.

Wow fantastic stuff. I’ll be following this as I’m keen on doing up some Primaris Phobos Outriders for my Salamanders army so may get some ideas from this thread. Kudos on the conversion mate, great stuff.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:
