I mentioned to a friend of mine that i was thinking of using the dusty valkyrie i had, and converting up a squad of 10 vets with custom grav chutes to ride in it. He then mentioned a spare set if elysian backpacks he had, and gave them to me for nothing! what a champ!
So i finally got round to using them, and made these 10 vets with triple flamer to ride around in the Valkyrie.
I used the Vanguard heads from the Skitarii set to keep the theme of the 409th going, and i decided to use their weapons too, that way i can use them as shotguns or lasguns. My initial thinking is that i will be using them as shotguns though!
The squad will be designated the hornets, as thats what they remind me of! and i may try and find a cool transfer to put on the Valkyrie to match that theme.
They have now been undercoated and are at the front of the queue for painting, if i can get them done in time, they may get their debut on the 8th!!
