I was lucky enough to lay my hands ona Wraithknight so I could do an unboxing, so you can have a look in advance at what the options are for modelling, magnetising or converting.
Wraithknight Unboxing Video
The pilot is into my Golem Battle Frame, but I am still mid move so all my paints are still packed.
That left me but one option - buy and build another kit 😉 (There goes my New Years Resolution of Paint One/Buy One)
Shes not the prettiest of vehicles at first glance, but once built, the core chassis is actually very sleak. I have scraped back all the detail on the stain glass enclosure next to the pilot to be bare armour, and it looks even better.
The plan is to mount a land raider hatch & radar where the assault cannon gunner was crammed, and mount a Forgeworld Air Defense Command Platform on the back:
And hey presto - Damocles Command Speeder (using all rules for the standard Rhino version of course)
But the last Thunderfire cannon I am not so set about yet...
I know I want it as a walker, as I have avoided tracked vehicles so far, and think a walking platform would look better than anti-grav (Ant - I am still going to find a home for your idea though - something naturlly more lithe maybe)
To that end, I have 2 sets of Ironclad Dreadnought legs and a base for the chassis. But its the actual cannon part Im unusre of.
I like the idea of showing it was more of a MIRV launcher rather than mortar, and ideally would use the FW Excorcist launcher:
Only they don't sell them seperate anymore.... Grrr...
Alternative include the puppet wars equivilant:
Or an extended Valkyrie missile pod:
So I invite feedback and ideas, suggestions and thoughts, as I not sure which way to go with it...
1-2-2013 - I got lucky on eBay - I got a Second Chance at an Exorcist Missile Rack so have managed to nab one, and at less than FW did sell it seperate, even with the p&p from the US. Thats my Thuderfire sorted!
