Default XV-28 Missile Ambush Pattern

Wanted to do something like this with an XV-8, but couldn't bring myself to spare one.

Rules won't be too different than a standard stealth, Missile Pod will be standard, built in target lock will allow it to fire at a different target than the markerlights, which will follow the Skyray format.

It is, but like I said, the xv-8 wouldve been a better fit but I don't have enough as it is

I like it, however my only problem is that it doesn't seem stable enough to hold the wings...

Maybe bulk them up with another leg protruding from the knees? Or some other sort of stabilisation/bulk up.


I might sketch the extra leg thing, I just realised it sounds a little wierd >.>

That looks hilariously awesome. Cheers to you, good sir.

It's enough to make a Stormboy... *puts on sunglasses* ...green with envy.

Sorry dude that looks retarded. Just gotta say it. The wings and missiles are way too big to be on that model of such small size. It's not that "ooo a stealth suit couldn't caring that equipment because it goes against fluff, etc" but...the base model is just too small and makes the whoe model look ridiculous...and that is how you are going to get respones like this. I don't take it seriously because of how it is presented.

You could try mounting it on a bigger piece. Maybe a battlesuit or if you want to go with the stealth suit idea you could make smaller wings and smaller missiles.

@ mandalorian

Not like I'm going to take offense, I don't take it seriously either (ive already explained why it's even on a stealth to begin with) the only other thing I could think of was to take off the legs and put it on a large base as a flyer.

My counter thought was, ' how am I going to explain him not having legs?'

You don't need to use separate posts for each image


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!
