Default Destroyers and Heavy Destroyers

Hey, I'm thinking about starting a necron army, but i REALLY don't like how the destroyers or heavy destroyers look. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas.

You might want to Clarify your question, or state one. You're not asking anything. I do believe that Destroyers are a very essential part of almost any necron army. However there are other options that might work for you, try a Necron lord with immortals and Veil of darkness this creates a fairly mobile fire base.

I assume you mean to convert them so they look less like they do now? What is it about them that you don't like the looks of?

haha, yea that's what i meant to say.
I don't like the platform-ish lower half.
and i only say lower half for lack of a better word, since it extends behind them

I've got a Destroyer with Warrior legs instead of a platform, but as cool as this looks, it's better off for counting as an Immortal than Destroyer, considering how it moves as a Jetbike.

You could attach them to a Wraith body, although that would become ridiculously expensive for what you get.

The only other one I can think of it to cut the engines from the destroyer platform off & attach them to the back of a Destroyer body with Warrior legs. Again, this would become a bit of a waste of money (unless you decide tocover your bases in wrecked Warriors, which would actually be pretty cool).

No its a full destroyer has the back thingy that only the destroyers/heavy destroyers have, but it also has legs and the bike is more like a cape, it seriously looks sweet
