Path of the Bonesinger: Storm Talon to Apache Gunship Conversion!

Storm Talon conversion to helicopter.

Spellduckwrong here. Well, over the last few days I managed to get a project out of my system. I had been wanting to convert a Storm Talon into a helicopter for months now. Being an Eldar player, however, I did not want to drop the money to get a kit I would never use. One night at the FLGS, a brave soul named Luke just handed me his and told me to do it. That solved that problem. Also, thankfully I had an old WWII model plane in my closet from years ago that had been collecting dust. It was promply sacrificed to the bitz gods and this was my reward. Not bad for my first vehicle conversion, if I do say so myself. Now if I can only get the owner to switch to the Raptors Space Marine chapter, this thing will match the rest of its brothers in arms. I've got some unpainted WIP shots I can post up too, if anyone cares to see them.

    1. Thanks, TJ Atwell! Your compliments mean a lot having seen some of your conversions on DFG. Also, thank you for noticing the proportions, I did quite a bit of relative measuring try and make everything appear correctly.

  2. Now if there is one thing you can be sure of it's that nothing more powerful than a young boy's wish. Except an Apache Helicopter. An Apache Helicopter has machine guns and missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry. It is an absolute death machine.

    1. Indeed, Ghostwind Corsairs. I personally love Apaches, always have. Also why I chose to be a crew chief for them in the US Army.

  4. Looks fantastic definately one of the better executed versions i have seen.

    Funny you mention Raptors chapter because thats exactly what im doing; with an Apocalypse now theme. Planning to do a few of these conversions for my own army.

    I would love to know what exact kit you used for the conversion and to see the progress shots.

    1. Thank you Minigiant. I actually just found out the Raptors existed maybe a month ago or so. I'm a fan of their tactical color scheme. I'll try and get the WIP pics together and, just for you, I will go dig through my trash to find the box for that model plane I used and put a pic of it up to.
