Default Tau Devilfish C.A.V.

Devilfish Carry All Vehicle

This is a Mod i would like to make out of a Devilfish (or three). Havn't figured out the stats yet, but It will have Four Gun Drones, In my picture i left off the rear wing extentions that hold the rear drones. Also it will have front and rear facing loading doors as well as four side doors. A top hatch and "shotgun" spaces for a crisis suit or broadside to ride one on each side. also there will be two side by side cocpits, but one will be pushed forward onto the nose as if the pilot were laying on his stomach. It will prolly need at lease one permanent weapon so I see a weapons mount to be underslung below the cocpits and in front of the front loading door.

I appologise if I stole anyones pictures to make mine, but i needed to get the bug out of my head.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Well it looks cool.

Kinda different and not shure what all you can or want to do with it.

But thats alright I am shure Wargammer or others can help out with rules.

Ok looks like 2 Devilfish and you will have to morf them together.

I can think up some stuff but that is a little tougher than just saying it.

You need to get 2 and give it a try is all I can think up?

I would say cut just in front of the side door and then cut just behind the other Devilfish's door.

Plastic card and greenstuff will be needed I am shure to make it work right.

You will then need plasticard to make a side step.
For your suit to stand on.

The motors mount on the front pretty easy after you cut the wing off.

On the other devil fish cut its front wings off and add them to the rear engines.

Kinda like this but you want two of them morfed.



But then you want to go even further and add another ship in there.

It can be done.

Good stuff my man.
I'll be back to help you more when I can.

Well I need to get the Plasticard and GS. then I need to figure out how to work with it. Then I can get the fishies and start cutting. ;D Thanks for the input.

Ever feel like going to Laughlin let me know. We play Sunday nights but can change it to see some of your awsome mods in action.

Ya I think most of us would jsut agree to that.

Pretty much says it all.

I would actually have to build that one to do it.

I cant tell you how it will seem togehter or where unless I did it.

But hay Laughlin, Nevada?
By the river?

My future wife and I was actually talking about maybe going there?

Is there a hobby shop or where do you guys meet?
Maybe we can meet up some day?

[edit]
Oh I checked your Profile.
Bullhead City?
So thats where you game?
Never beent here either.
Who knows maybe one day?

You would have to bring your conversion with you and we could make it for you one afternoon.

I think I might have this figured out, as GD said it will be tough. Basically the devilfish has a good thing going for it, side pieces. I think all you will have to cut is the nose and bottom. However from your pic it's hard to tell exactly where the splice would be. Honestly if you did anything I would consider splicing an extra set of sides in there and then cutting the nose to fit in front of the second set. Then it's a matter of filling the gap with plastic card and a few details added to the card for the extra work you did.

You might be able to get a full fish and try ordering the sprue for the side doors, although you want 2 sets of engines. I am looking at mine right in front of me so I can tell you the doors/side pieces, will be the place to work from. Get them in place and then just cut to fit them.

You know I have done Rhinos doubled up.
here
http://pic6.picturetrail.com/VOL169/...8/25617858.jpg

And I have done Landraider doubled up.
Here.
http://pic6.picturetrail.com/VOL169/...8/52126668.jpg



But they are very square and bulky so they seem easier to work with especially with plasti card.
But if I can do it You can do it to.

Like Hyvetrygon sed just set those doors and then your in.
done deal I know I have done it.
Setting the doors just right is the key.

Good luck.

Oh and Dizzygamer,
your no fool.
You read that right.
I am going out of town to the middle of the desert to get married to my Fiancee.
I am getting married ont he 15 of this month.
So from the 12 to the 17 I will be out of town and sorry for me off the internet but lucky for her.

lol, You Dog! congratulations! hope it goes well, which desert?

and it could be done with a cut just behind the side doors and some pinning and GS to smooth the edges and even expand it needed.
