YES! Put a massive rocket exhaust on the back, and add in a rule that should you wish to or automatically on last wound he launches himself at the closest enemy!

I could see it working as a detachable airframe. He flies in, discharges missiles, then detaches the wings and fights on foot like a normal stealthsuit. But I can't really see him walking around with it, or being able to fire the outer missiles without being spun around in place.

I like it - its one of those silly-awesome things that are just fun. I can picture him firing all 6 missiles at once, and just shooting forwards suicidally into a tank!
wouldn't let me post with more than one image, -shrug-

@ Khan

I wish it were detachable. I just think the whole setup takes more advantage of the stealth field with the 30" and 36" range coupled with JSJ. So even if I just had one equipped with missile pods on some different mounts.....I'll get back to you on that.

I was going to put a leg of landing gear coming from his normal jetpack, but strangely I couldn't find any in my bitz.

I am just thinking in terms of background. The model itself is fine. If you really wanted to play the rules that way, you could just build a normal Stealthsuit model to swap with him when he lands.

True true. Make an alpha strike rule then drop the wings and have just the MP equipped suit
