Olly: I don't have a copy of Codex: Witch Hunters, bt I found the image below on the 'net. Is that the one?

Thanks for all the suggestions so far everyone - keep 'em coming!

As for Chaos bits - what sort of thing, and to fit what?

Regards,
Reaver

Chaos style turrets (top and side) to be added to Rhinos (old plastic ones - everyone's got a few of them floating around) to make Predators.

Spikey bits to add to the front of Rhino's and Landraiders...

You know, Chaos stuff  :vD .

Yep thats the one! :cool:

As great as chaos spiky bitz would be I can see them being waaaay too fiddly to be off any real use unless you did whole turrets/sponsons and front plates (as Onyx siad) but hey seeing what you've done so far I'm sure you're up to it :;):
or maybe even chaos dreadnaught? Some daemon engines (knights, contagions, silver towers, khorne things) or something thats uniquelly chaotic would be great

Turrets and sponsosn as well as making "spikey bitz" that are all part of a single piece. Even if they were technically oversized spikes they could still be useful.

The only issue I see is that there are multiple Marine styles for vehicles so you might need to focus on just creating bitz to fit the metal vehicles.

That, of course, is the problem...
Some use plastic rhinos, some metal - there's 3 different styles of Land Raider out there. Doing Chaosy bits that fir one almost certainly won't fit the others.

It might be easier to game the Horus Heresy - that way we can just use our normal models as bad guys! :))

The metal minis have more surface area to work with in any case.

Was going for Cathedral Cap Imp but then almost overlooked the Stormbird. I'd say with all the pre heresy hype at the mo this could be a winner.

Just reading False Gods (I know I'm so far behind but anyway...) and the only thing different between the stormbird and the t/hawk is the rear access ramp (and of course the size :))  )

And the heavier arnement, sleeker shape, folding wings, etc etc  :p
From the HH Novels, from 'Horus Rising' up to 'Descent of Angels'
- They are larger and more 'sleek' than Thunderhawks, but still described as 'fat bodied' and 'heavy-duty'. They have a more streamlined and conical nose compared to the blocky nose of the Thunderhawk.
- They are often described as looking somewhat similar to birds of prey, so judging by this I would have thought their wings are much larger in proportion rather than the relatively small wings on a Thunderhawk. The wings are described as folding inwards while landing as well.
- They have heavy engines mounted under the wings, along with racks of missiles.
- There are several different variants in service (the Luna Wolves, for example, use the 'Warhawk VI' pattern).
- They have 'underwing cannons', as well as cannons mounted underneath the cockpit, and 'rotary cannons in forward pintle mounts'.
- They are able to carry at least 50 marines, probably more given the fact they are substantially larger than the Thunderhawk.

Where is the mention of folding wings? Not questioning you but only half way through False Gods and has been limited mention of Stormwings.
