Default Cuddlefish Assault Gunship (Pics)

This is my first conversion. I got this idea from GD, so its not really my design. enjoy!















Cuddlefish Assault Gunship



Armor Front Side Rear BS
375 Points 14 13 11 3(4)

Type: Skimmer, Tank

Structure Points: 2

Squad size: An assault group must be taken as a detachment of 1-3 Gunships. Gunships may be equipped differently.

Transport Capacity: May carry up to ten models. May also carry XV-25, counting as two models apiece.

Equipment: A Cuddlefish is always equipped with a targeting array, multi tracker, flechete discharger, burst cannon and a twin-linked railgun. Note: This railgun may not fire submunitions. The twin-linked railgun and transport capacity may be exchanged for a single railgun with submunitions, an ion cannon or 6 seeker missiles and two networked markerlights at no extra cost. A Cuddlefish may be equipped with any vehicle upgrade in the Tau armory and may purchase four seeker missiles for +10 points apiece, in addition to the ones it may already be equipped with.

Secondary Armament: In addition to the primary armament, this vehicle has two hardpoints for defensive weaponry. Both hardpoints must be filled. Any combination of available weapons can be chosen. Different hardpoints count as different weapons. Duplicate choices are not twin linked and fire separately. Fill the hardpoints with:

Single Smart Missile System- 10 points
*Two Missile Pods- 15 Points
*Two Gun Drones- 20 Points
*Two Burst Cannon- 10 Points
*Two Flamers- 5 Points

Note: Duplicate hardpoint choices are not twin-linked and fire separately.
*Indicates weapons are not twin linked and fire separately.

You'll need to upload them to a photo sharing website like ImageShack or Photo Bucket. From there you can copy and paste a link or embed them with img tags.

It looks pretty cool to me. I can't shake the feeling that it should be flying around, though, with all of those engines. With the Skyray rack on it definitely looks like it should be chasing after Thunderbolts instead of acting as a tank.

Pretty cool stuff,

Drop the armour down, IMO to 13. Skimmers should not ever be armour 14.

Otherwise, very cool.
