The premise behind the vehicle is basic search and destroy operations, where terrain/ conditions are not conductive to deployment of troops or heavy tanks. It is inherently a Super Heavy killer, able to disable or destroy all but the largest vehicles in a concentrated volley from all four of it's lascannons. However it can be disabled itself due to infrequent power surges.
They don't even require magnets to hold them in as the new GW model tollerances are pretty tight. Believe me I am all for push fit weapons!
Typhoon Missile Launcher bit. For the weapons I used the plastic Lascannons from the side of the Valkyrie Model.
The trick with the lascannons is that you have to cut off and re-position the targeter on the side, flush with the end of the mount so it doesn't look wonky. Pretty simple conversion there that goes faster if you use a "Bone Saw".
Once you knock that out, its home free- you can customize the rest of the vehicle any way you want. You now have a fast moving Titan Killer thats fun to play with.
Bellicose. It's 25 more points that the normal Stormraven, and you can give a few more pieces of equipment if you want. You can download the PDF of it here.
