Default an idea of doom and much convertidness.

i had this idea while playing killzone. i want to build my own air cavalry. a little random but i had some good ideas. if i get a hammerhead, remodel the gun inot more of a cannon shape, replace the little wingy bits on the front with extra boosters, i would have a pretty cool russ.

for rough riders i could use eldar jetbikes. even though none of the guns they can use really suit it. i could use cadians with re-breathers and use devilfish converted similar to the hammer head to be chimeara's. what do you think? i know, it's a little noobie and lame but the aspect would fit my armies fluff.

Someone did this ages ago in WD, but with converted land speeders. He even had a basilisk converted from speeders.

Tried to find pics, but couldn't I'm afraid.

I've often toyed with the idea of stripping my Vulture's wings to make it more like an attack helicopter...I think it'd work with the Vulture, but a Valkyrie might end up looking like an Osprey. It'd still be pretty nice though.

+++I think that would be a good project, I woul convert the men to look more high-tech, or use Eliysian models. I wouldn`t use Eldar though, It`s either Tau or Eldar vhiecles. Both would look wierd.

Actually... a guy i know made a sweet Van Sarr necromunda gang from eldar and catachans. He used the eldar bodies and catachan heads. He then gave them lasguns/autoguns. Could be a really high tech sort of force.

Interesting idea, but chaos backpacks are better for jetpacks.
