For some reason I don't feel like buying the gyrocopter model available from the Dwarf line and while I have some of my own ideas, I could use some inspiration. I was wondering if anyone knew of other players that may have created their own versions or customized gyrocopters - the only variation I have seen is on the GW website (it is designed for passengers or something).

Check out the classic gyrocopter, it is a bit more believeable.
Harlequin made gyros too, though the scale was a bit small.
Skys the limit.

Conversion by a friend of mine using the old Gorkamorka Death Kopta and some dwarf bitz.

Nice one Avian!

I think that the old 5th edition model wasn't better than the current one. One of my friends has got both and I prefer the newest.

At the Mercenaries tournament there was a beautiful dwarf army (won best painted army iirc) that used Warmaster dwarf Zeppelins converted up, looked stunning, unfortunately I forgot my camera so no pics :(

Looks a lot more like the old one though, much preffered that to the new gyrocopter (like the old Land Speeder its gone from slimline to looking to bulky)

A brudge pony with pegasus wings is always funny.

But is it a Ponysus, or a Grudgisus?

Or a Grudgicopter?

I really liked my new Gyrocopter. LIKED being the word. That Balloon was awesome. Really original and to theme. BUT...I'm too lazy to build it from scratch so I'll have to stay with my 'Copter that's rotors keep falling off!
