After building and painting my Metal Gear Rex i really wanted something similar for my space wolves.

After looking throu a lot of different forums,threads, gw kits and images on google this is what i came up with:









it was a really ambitious project for me and am really happy with the result.

i will take a look at it again in a few days to see if there are things i dont like or that need to be changed.

all weapons are magnetized so i can use it as a whirlwind, cybot, predator or part of the aegis defence line( with my dreads magnetized autocannons).

hope you like it ^_^

Very cool. What are the legs from and did you think about putting arms on?

Here's to me in my sober mood,
When I ramble, sit, and think.
Here's to me in my drunken mood,
When I gamble, sin, and drink.
And when my days are over,
And from this world I pass,
I hope they bury me upside down,
So the world can kiss my ass!

Ah, of course, I didn't think hard enough about the legs. Some ideas sound better in theory than practice. I still really like it!

I took a look at what it would cost to buy this by bits. I came up with 25$ from ebay. The most expensive part would be the defiler legs. The cockpit from the storm talon was surprisinly cheap.

Will you actually be using this to play or is it just some thing that looks cool.

How can I bring this beautiful beast into my life? Is it only made with pieces from the chibi flyer (don't recall the real name), defiler and gk knight?

I wasn't including those, allowing for a bit more customization. Honestly for just the base model though you can do it pretty cheap. But to spiffy it up like you did it would start to get more expensive.

How do you plan on using this beauty?

because a lot of people asked here and via pm (and because id love to see more of those from different people ^_^) here some wip pictures and close ups:

first the basic leg construction.
the connection between the defiler parts and the dreadknight legs is a very weak point so i pinned them together. same with the feet and the defiler parts.



now for the hips. basically the dreadknights weapon mounts. if you look closely you can see 4 magnets that hold the cockpit. you can glue the upper and lower part together but i really wanted it to be able to turn and make soundeffects while doing so



heres the cockpit and the magnets that connect to the hip. i also used vents from a droppod here because i thought it looks good



cockpit sideview. in case the legs get destroyed it can fly away
you can see where i cut the stormtalon off



last but not least some extra sw icons and brass etch for extra sw flavor

That looks more like a proper kit than the Storm Talon.

Seriously cool stuff - agreed that the addition of arms would be a mistake.

If you removed the Heavy Bolters (maybe magnetize them for model purposes) you'd easily be able to use that as a Comtemptor Mortis pattern with caraspace missile launcher.

Alternatively you could remove the assault cannons and use it as a Land Speeder Typhoon with HB, or take a Dark Angels proxy allied detachment with it representing Sammael's Land Speeder Sableclaw with twinlinked heavy bolters and assault cannons.

Regardless, it looks gorgeous, and if it wasn't for the fact I'd need to get a Defiler and a Dreadknight too I'd make my own.
