Hi guys,

With all the rumors about a future lander for the Blood Angels I had to jump the gun and create my own. After reading over the codex and seeing what it can do it was a no brainer.

Anyway, I took mostly a brand new Valk and some parts left over from a Baneblade conversion. I also used a whole bunch of card stock and small bits. I really did not have a direction on the original idea other than knowing the stat line.

I knew the weapon load out and some important facts about the flyer.

1. It comes in fast and hot from outer orbit. That means I needed to make sure that all my weapons and wing placement was set in a way that it would not melt on entry. That is my main reason for flipping the wings and putting the heat shield panels under the body. I also made sure to mount all my weapons on top to protect various parts on landing.

2. I also knew that this bad boy can carry 1 dread and 2 squads so I built out the body and made a carry arm system on the back area. My thoughts on this would be that it would come in hot and heavy. The heat shields would take the blast keeping the dread safe by the angle is came in at. Then it would release the dread a few feet off the ground ready for battle.

Well, that's at least what I imagin. I'm still a ways off since I have not really added details that will really make it pop. Those along with some green stuff work is getting done over the next couple of days. I should have some finished pics and the start of the paint job by this weekend.

My hope is to have it ready for Adepticon so we can display it at the show.

Hope you guys like it.

It's certainly great execution. I'm not a huge fan of the design, though. It reminds me of the designs for the next generation space planes or what NASA was once designing to be the replacement to the Space Shuttle (which, if that's the look you were going for, you definitely got it). Personally, I think the design looks too tubby and stubby, for my tastes, but my hat's off to you for coming up with a design that you can replicate! I know I'm trying to figure out a way to use my Valks to turn them into Storm Ravens.

Very interesting Romeo. I like the design overall and the Dread carry system is pretty cool.

It looks... big. Won't that be a PITA on the game table?

Well there goes the idea of me using a valk as a "Counts as" now that I've seen this I need to make something anywhere near as awesome to use instead. Great job.

Did you put magnets on the dread carrier? Wow, great thinking.

Yes, I used little earth magnets. Its kinda cool because if you have the dread sitting on a table and you fly the Storm Raven over him he actually gets sucked up onto the magnets. Its totally nerdy cool.

Lol, not really building it to sell it. I just like scrach building vehicles and waiting to see how close I get to the true release.

I did the Stormlord tank scratch build about 10 months before it launched and when GW released it I was almost dead on.

I may do a drawing for it once the real one comes out. Maybe get names at Adepticon or something.

Who knows.

Thanks

It reminds me of the next-gen space shuttle concepts, too, although part of that is probably due to the white/grey contrasting areas. And this isn't a bad thing- the whole point is that this thing is designed to come down from orbit hot and fast

I like it a lot! The only thing that strikes me as odd is the way the dreadnought is lying down (and the arms holding it look like about the only flimsy thing on here... I certainly wouldn't want to be held up by those things coming through the atmosphere). I'm not sure how else I would position it, though.

Once its all finished I'll see how it balances and I'll add the plug that goes on the Valks. I left plenty of room under it so I could mount the stand.

It should look cool once its all painted up.

Alright, who fed the Valkyrie after midnight? Looks cool, do they really want us to scratch build these without even a description of what they look like?

I'm not too keen on the idea of a dread riding it like a garbage truck, and I would have put the deployment doors in the front like a land raider.

Still, it rocks and has me thinking of picking up a valk..

Fantastic job, with the only possible nitpick being the way the dreadnought is positioned. I think having it hanging feet down would make more sense, and from the rules about inflicting a S4 hit on the rear of the dread if the storm raven explodes, I'd assume it's facing away from the ship. So it's like parachuting from the back of it when deployed, and the facing would make sense given what its trajectory would be.

Also, you may want to redesign the underside of it a bit to represent the forward opening assault ramp, also as per rules/description in the codex. I've been struggling with how to best represent that myself, and I think one possible solution is to build an assymmetrical ship with the cockpit to one side, and the transport compartment and ramp next to it. So like a Star Wars/Trek shuttle/space ship rather than an atmospheric jet. But what you have here is great.
