Spitting Hot Fire – Warthog Stormraven

Get ready to make some machine gun noises, with this classic A-10 Warthog “counts as” Stormraven conversion.

Rottimus posted up some WIP shots, and his final product posted back in the day (see below).

I think his conversion stays true to the design elements of the A-10 Warthog (which is technically the Thunderbolt II, after the famous WWII fighter of the same name).  You can see the twin stacked engines, thrust masking tail stabilizers, and of course bubble canopy.

He also added are also some Vertical Take Off and Land (VTOL) elements on this conversion as the main engines, and wing thrusters can rotate.

Oh yeah then there is the GAU-8. Click the picture, it pretty much sums up why this plane and conversion is so awesome (you know you want to).

To make this thing it looks like he used a Stormtalon kit mostly, and added elements from the Stormraven (wings and intake) as well as some Valkyrie tail sections to make the uprights. I think some of the fuselage extensions may be Citadel movement trays, but I’m not 100% sure.

For now enjoy the pics below and of course the full article over on the Bolter and Chainsword Forums.

What do you think of the conversion? -MBG
