Hi folks,

I had some bits and needed a new chappy for my RW. How does this look? I was inspired by the "Dark Knights" ride from the latest movie.

It's a nice concept, but it looks too flimsy for a marine bike.
If you add more armour, particularly around the wheels, then I think that would be a very nice concept

That is just badass. Seriously cool concept.

I do agree that some armor plates would be a nice touch. Be careful not to overwhelm the design, it looks very nice as it is. I would add armor to the middle area mainly, around the Chappies legs. A bit of gear on the back of the bike (mainly guns, or tactical equipment) would be a nice way to bulk the rear up a bit. You could add a windshield on the front, represented through armor-like bullet-proof glass; this may make the project a drag, therefore can be skipped to keep the flow of your work. One thing that would be worth the effort is to close the Chappies grip on the handlebar.

I really like this one though, good job

Hiya Folks

Thanks for the comments, I'm seeing the same issue with armor (or lack of). I want to add a few bits, and as long as it keeps the overall look intack, it should be okay

Thanks again!

I agree with the comments above about fleshing it out a bit. This would make a killer scout bike though as is. Great Work.

Yeah, the skeleton warrior skull is smaller than a marine head I think.

Now getting one of the skull helmets off one of the various chaplain models would work great.

seems a bit too long shoerter will make it seem less flimsy without having to add extra armour at the moment i think it loks like its missing another rider or something looks really long other than that great concept
