I took part in a 60mm Base Challenge on another forum, and ended up with 2 votes. Am I disappointed? No... simply because some of those entries were so amazing, I'm stoked I even got 2 votes at all!

Anyway, here is my entry, a Pre-Heresy Night Lords Jetbike. This was as much an experiment in converting a jetbike quickly (and more importantly...cheaply) as it was a painting exercise.

Can't be seen in the photo but I used a cut down vent system from the Ravenwing Land Speeder Missile Launcher for the engine exhaust on the back of the jetbike.

The lightning was something I wanted to try out, and I found surprisingly quick to do (less then 2 minutes), and although it doesn't look it in the photo, its quite clear in real life.

C&C is welcome.

My friend that is one of the best conversions I have seen in a long time. A great use of space marine bike, but I have to ask did you have to go pre-heresy? I would have likes to see your bike as a chaos night lord.

Couple of reasons for Pre-Heresy.
1. Its an era we see very little of so it allows a degree of freedom.
2. We never see any Pre-Heresy Night Lords, which is a shame considering their history.
3. Why not?
