Default Converting a Hammerhead into a Devilfish (and back again)

Sneek

Peek: Overview


The GW boxed sets for the Hammerhead Gunship and

Devilfish Transport are nearly identical. The only difference is that GW includes the

TAU Hammerhead gun sprue in the Hammerhead boxed set. Because of this it is easy to

convert your Hammerhead into a Devilfish.... and back again. Just follow these few

simple pointers.

1) Don't glue on the Smart Missile System weapon pods.

These can be swapped out with normal Gun Drones used on Devilfish.

2) Don&#

039;t glue on the main gun turret, and don't glue on the vehicle top hatch assembly

. This allows you to remove the gun turret and set the vehicle top hatch assembly onto

the model like a Devilfish.

3) Don't glue the Burst Cannon or Smart

Missiles on the two weapons pods. With care, the weapons can be installed or removed

without breaking the holding clips. Reuse one of your Burst Cannons as the main weapon on

the Devilfish.

4) Don't glue the Targeting Array onto the front weapons

turret. Instead attach these using small "rare earth" magnets. Alternatively

use a pin inserted through the turret and into the targeting array. This can allow you

to remove the Targeting Array and install a Burst Cannon in its place. If this sounds

like too much work, then simply stick on your Burst Cannon to the side of the vehicle

using "Blu tac" when you want to be a Devilfish. Edit: More information on this

can be found in Part 4.

Dam it.

Why the hell did't I think of that. Oh well I converted mine to have a

swiveling turret.

the only downside for me is that i cant get a hammerhead weapons sprue separately here in australia.

the reason i need it, you can have 2 weapon turrets, 1 railgun and 1 ion, you can make 4 drones, 2 are burst cannon ones, other 2 are missiles. and then you have left over another burst cannon (for conversion to place in front turret) and the tracker thing that goes on hammerhead. and it means you dont have the ugly magnet end of a converted burst cannon on one of your drones..

You can easily take the Burst cannon out from the drones and replace it with a smart missile system. The trick is to not glue it in the first place.
As to the Ion Cannon/Railgun, build a second of those mounting parts from sprue, glue it to the second weapon, and you can then swap them around to your hearts content

That'll take you straight to the forums. You can access the 40K.ca pages from there.
