    I thought some time ago about doing the same, but, hmz,

    Atm i am not sure, as Forgeworld stopped with the multilaser.
    I love the "new" Lightning fighter's looks, but I am sorely tempted in converting this model to.
    Cool sideshots:

    Re: The 597th & 14th ( armoured ) Valhallans...

    Thanks for all the positive feedback guys! The wolves are comming along nicely, serving as a mind break from the tanks... But the urge to "tank it" again is upon me, mainly because we now have a new indipendant games shop in my home town who loves the KV-2 turret I've come up with! (They were banned from my local GW due to a not 100% rule that was introduced!?) So there will be 3 more of those (also 3 Ryza swap turrets) & 2 more squads of infantry in chimeras... The look will shift to ww2 soviets based on the back cover of the new Ciaphas Kain book... I'm wrestling with wether the tanks should be plain green or light & dark green splinter based on Mig-3 cammo!? There will also be a shodowsword & 2 macharius'.
    There will be more painting I promise... Honest, no, really there will!!!

    rtmonkeyboy,

    You do get a much lower profile. Looks like it was designed that way.

    Re: The 597th & 14th ( armoured ) Valhallans...

    So there I was with the last tank finished, can of Russian green spray paint in hand, and my mate says "you could do with a couple of Hellhounds..."
    I agreed, but after making 20+ chimera chassis I couldn't face another 2! And then the tread head next to us muttered the fateful words "crocodile!"
    Photos next week, then the painting begins... honest!
